Customer Question of the Elite Heavyweight Karate Uniform

sizing

My student gi is a size 3 and fits perfectly. I ordered a size 3 in this gi and while the top fits nicely (arms a bit long), the bottoms are HUGE. As in, I can actually wrap the waist all the way around my waist. I can fit two of me in the pants! And though the measurements say 24" inseam, they are way too long. Did I maybe get a mismatched set with bigger pants?

I am 5'4" 130 pounds, 28" waist, 30" inseam. I'm worried that if I exchange it for a size 2 it will be too small. Should I just wash it a few times to see if it shrinks? Exchange for another size 3 and hope the pants thing was just a mix up?

Hi Chrissy. What you are experiencing is actually rather normal. The drawstring waist of heavyweight gi seem much wider than they need to be. All you have to do is pull the drawstrings tight so that they function as an elastic waist would. You can then tie or double knot the string to use up excess slack.

Washing it a few times will probably help in getting it down to a smaller size as these are cotton construction.
