I just got my Padilla and Sons gi! Love the material and it's so much softer than my starter gi. I sent my measurements over and they were really great in helping me pick the right size. They recommended an A4 which fits my lower half great, but the top seems a little...large to me.Wondering if it's worth returning. Really not sure though. I haven't washed it, and it hasn't shrunk, so maybe that's the issue. Let me know what you guys think.
You should definitely shrink the top. The skirt and sleeves are a bit long. Try a warm water wash and dry in the dryer on low... if that doesn't do it, try hot water and on high. Then if a couple more wash (on cold) and dry (on low) cycles doesn't finish the job, I'd take it to be tailored. You can find minimum gi measurement standards on the IBJJF website; I'd go with that.
Thanks Georgette. I guess gis are just like clothes. Fit the largest part of your body and have the rest taken in.
