Need some help w/ gi sizes

im getting back into gi grappling but,i need a gi

i'm 5'6" and used to wear a size 5. my problem is ive put on some muscle since i stopped using a gi.i went from 170lbs to 220lbs. i can't even put on my old century gi i used to wear but they did have some minor shrinkage from before.

any recommendations?

thanks for any assistance

I have only one suggestion. Lay off the anabolics son.

Just kidding. I'm just a jealous skinny twerp...with shrinkage. Phone Post 3.0

it does get bigger on up to 8 i think

i know 5 was for guys 5'8"-6'. the club gi's i've been using that are 6 though tend to look like long dresses on me and are pretty uncomfortable.

i guess im wondering if anyone knows of gi's for short stocky guys.or does most people just use way over sized gi's
