1st 1 piece suit, need help with fitment.
I ordered my 1st 1 piece suit (see attached pics). RST trachtech Evo III, size Uk/US 42. I'm 5'10" 186 -189. I understand these things are made to be for the race position and not made for comfort when walking. My 1st time trying it on was an interesting experience. Getting it on was tough enough but trying to get it off, omg 😳! Unfortunately my wife was at work so I was stuck for a while. I thought I was going to have to call 911. Luckily my 5 yr old was able to assist me and I finally got it off.
The suit feels fine on the bike and I can walk in it (not normally) and it takes some effort to zip but it goes on. Im pretty thin but as tight as it is everywhere it is extremely generous around the waist if you can tell from the side pic. I'm afraid if I go up a size I will look like an umpa lumpa. The hardest part is getting it off over my shoulders. I workout regularly and I feel if I gain even half a cm in width that thing won't come off.
Is it supposed to be this difficult to put on and to take off? Do these things stretch? Also I'm wearing a 1piece undersuit. Still difficult to get off but much easier than without, but I also am not sweating from a day at the track.
