Wetsuit for someone with broad shoulders


I was looking for a wesuit and thought I'd splash out and go for the Ironman Helix. Got it delivered this morning and it was never going to close at the back. I looked at the sizing chart and the Small-Tall (SMT) size seemed perfect - I am 73-74 kg and 179 cm. However, it was far too tight around my lats and shoulders. My waist is 30-31" and chest 40". Anyone got any ideas about more suitable wetsuits for me? Cheers!

    I have the same problem with a non-standard bod and I've gone through quite a few manufacturers over the past years. I can honestly say that a custom suit is the way to go. I currently have a Snugg which is very comfortable and allows me full motion which definitely lacks with off the peg solutions.
