It's not QUITE as snug as everyone is saying.
on March 15, 2017
I don't think I needed to size up quite as much as I did. I agree that parts of the leo run a bit tight, but I sized up, & mine is big mostly everywhere.
I'm-- eh, I have no idea what I weigh. Call it 135 pounds or under, 5'4'', with broad shoulders & a butt. Hour glass shape, muscular-- trapeze swinger. :P I think I'm about 34-26-36. The reviews said this thing ran tiny, so I bought a Large, when size chart indicated I could be a small or medium. It's not falling off, and I didn't return it, because it's not so far off as to be ridiculous (they're stretchy, so obviously even a big leo is going to fit okay unless the length is way outta whack). But the back of the leo has airspace between my mid-back and butt-- the fabric isn't hugging. Definitely have room in the waist. And I have some of the dreaded crotch bagginess going on. That said, the shoulders fit pretty snug. And the thigh openings are comfy, for once, when I typically expect ballet-leg openings to cut off circulation in my thighs. :P
Overall, yes, the shoulder area is short/slim, so you should size up if you're bulky there. But the rest of it either runs true to size or is not as large as everyone is saying. I should have gone with the top-end of my usual size, rather than going a full-size up from there.
