1 Piece Suit - How tight is too tight?
I just bought a 1 piece Dainese suit. I tried it on at the store and walked around for 10 minutes and sat on a few bikes. It was tight but everyone I know has expressed that a 1 piece suit should be tight. So much so that you can't stand up straight. Well, that was certainly the case. I couldn't stand up perfectly straight. It was tight, but I figured this must be the way it should be.
Well, I had the pleasure of a track day yesterday with the new suit. Unfortunately, I walked away with sore shoulders from the suit pulling them in and down. I also fealt the strain on my back when leaning forward. I fealt like I was working against the suit.
Surely, this means the suit is too small, correct? Or is this normal and can/should I expect for it to stretch more?
Thanks in advance for any advice you may be able to give.
