I have exact same issue. I assume you got the SP suit? I got the Black SP Boot Cut suit last year and tried 3 different sizes and finally went with the 56 i think (I'm 6 foot and about 185ish). Suit fits great except shoulders and arms are a little snug. It's feels fine in the race car and is never really uncomfortable or anything..... the biggest PIA is getting your arms out of it after you've been sweating in it for 2 hours. My friends all have sparco's and they don't have the problem. I went with the alpinestars because it is a little more form-fitting and not so bulky like other suits and for that price point it is a very good and lightweight suit.
