Furthermore, how do you determine your flight suit size?
Taking Measurements Make sure tape measure is held snugly (not tightly) against your body. For circumference measurements (chest/waist/hips), tape measure should be parallel to floor. If fiting for a flight suit, take measurements over garments you intend to wear under suit.
Subsequently, question is, what does a flight suit do? A flight suit is a full-body garment, worn while flying aircraft such as military airplanes, gliders and helicopters. These suits are generally made to keep the wearer warm, as well as being practical (plenty of pockets), and durable (including fire retardant). Its appearance is usually similar to a jumpsuit.
Beside above, how much does a flight suit cost?
I usually wear medium shirts and 30x32 pants (I'm 6'1"). The large flight suit fit perfectly as far as height is concerned, but it's wide through the waist. Crossing the velcro straps at the waist made it fit pretty well.

Why do jet pilots wear tight suits?
A g-suit is an anti-gravity garment worn by fighter pilots. When they are pulling positive G's, the suit inflates and prevents blood from pooling in their feet and legs which would cause them to lose consciousness. NASA astronauts also wear g-suits when they experience Orthostatic Intolerance (OI).
