    Got this new/used F bomb suit! It's a back zip and I would say I am at the upper limits of the sizing. It's a xxxl, I am 6'3" 270lbs. When I get it around my shoulders, the fireskin isn't attached to the velcro and it's about my mid back area way out of my reach. So far the only way for me to get it fully on is with another person. Does anyone have any tips??

    I definitely need to lose a few, but I finally figured it out!! Also didn't help that it was still wet when I was trying...

    - put your suit on in a cool/dry place where you wont start sweating when struggling
    - put your first foot in a plastic blag and then put your leg through the hole, then pull the bag off and repeat
    - make sure to massage the rubber up your body

    Lather up on Belly Jelly. you can get it at most surf shops. its to prevent wetsuit rashes but should slide in you too.

    Never heard of the belly jelly. 3x should be the right fit. I'm 6-6 250 and 3x works for me, even when I put on a few.
