As can be seen from the size chart, currently g-suits are not made in "real-world" sizes. (This is why I want them to be made specifically for medical use. I have lots of design ideas.) Particularly for women, it is even possible to meet the measurement guidelines for the g-suit, but the g-suit still does not fit. Take into consideration that g-suits are made for fighter pilots - mostly males in excellent shape.

For women, from my experience, the size Small Regular corresponds to a Misses size 10 pants (in the United States) and can be adjusted to be smaller. The size Medium Regular at its smallest also works for a Misses size 10 pants (in the United States). The size Large Regular corresponds to a Misses size 16 pants (in the United States) but may be too long.

Currently the only color available is Army sage green. (United States Air Force Thunderbirds wear blue g-suits.)

Not many g-suits are available.

The NSN (National Stock Number) which represents an anti-g garment and its corresponding size is helpful when using the DRMO website to buy a g-suit. The FSC (Federal Supply Class) number 8475, which is for specialized flight clothing and accessories, is also helpful in the search.
