I have just order a vest from the internet and recieve it today. I tried it on and I feel like its very tight around my belly. It s the Ripcurl vest and it has a zip on the front. And I haven't tried it in the water yet.
Please tell me that should I get a bigger one or it just about right

definitely want it to fit tight. I have the O'neill Vapor and I originally got one size too big. Took it back got a smaller size, now when I put it on when it's dry it's super tight, then once I'm in the water it's nice.

Which Ripcurl did you get? If I'm correct, I assume it is neoprene (I don't think ripcurl makes any other type). Neoprene always expands when wet. Like Thane, I have the Oneil Vapor...It was really tight when I bought it, but when it got wet, I almost thought it was too big? It's pretty comfy when I ride though. Now I love it!
