I'm 5'9", 180 pounds. I bought a Medium suit. Many people on here who were about my size or larger got the Medium, and said it was too large. I don't think so. It IS a little big, but not by much. It fits fairly well. It's an odd suit; you step into it from behind - the back part opens up and you step into the feet - a lot like those pajamas we had as kids. Anyhow, you definitely need a second person to help you; the pack part has 2 tiny sets of velcro holding it shut. There's also a strap around the waist that you tie shut at the back. It's a weird getup, and it makes you wonder why they didn't do a set of pants and a separate top. The cape has 2 pieces of velcro on it - the hooks - and you press it onto the actual fabric of the suit around your neck. It stays in place - but when you take it off - it will tear away at the fabric. So, not the best construction.
The worst parts of the suit are the feet and the crotch. The feet are those foam foot-covers with a strap along the bottom to keep them in place. This suit arrives folded up, and there's a big crease along the top of each foot. No way will you get this looking like the photo here. This is one highly photoshopped photo here!!! Second worst part is the crotch - let's just say you'll need a cup or something in this area to keep from scaring everyone. Again, odd setup.
Don't buy this thinking you'll win any costume competition. This is meant for comedic purposes only. Think dads taking their kids around the neighborhood, or in my case, an Uncle who helps hand out candy and keep jack-o-lanterns lit during halloween.
The chest piece is pretty big. It all kind of looks ridiculous. The suit has these overly-padded bicep and tricep bits to it, but NO padding in the forearm. So you end up with these ridiculous fat bicep arms and thin forearms.
So, not the best, but not that bad.
Regarding the size of the costume...after reading the other reviews, I was torn between the L and XL. I decided to go with the XL based on the thought that I'd rather the costume be a little too big than too small. I am 6' 4" and weigh 250 lbs. The costume was certainly not "skin-tight" but it fit fairly well in the crotch and wasn't uncomfortably tight. It had good length in the legs and arms and a bit baggy in the chest and neck areas. I am absolutely certain that the large would not have fit properly if I had selected that instead of the XL. I also wore a pair of jeans beneath the costume and a long-sleeved shirt to help make the fit more accurate. The costume will stretch nicely, and if you're in that 6' 0" to 6' 2" range and weigh in the 200 - 225 lb. range, I might suggest the large instead of the XL. It's the length from the crotch to your toes that a taller person might have an issue with if you order a large. Even though the costume was not "skin-tight" everyone thought it was a great costume and very authentic looking.
The main reason for the 4-Star rating was due to the Velcro issue. The colors and style of the costume was otherwise perfect.
