one piece suit fitment?

hey guys. I recently purchased my first one piece suit. It is used and I got it on craigslist for $125. Its a Dainese suit and the model is a 1976 I believe. Anyways, I have never owned a suit before and did some research before buying to see approximate sizing. The size of the suit is a 54 and I am 6 foot, 180 with a 32in waist. The suit seems to fit great. Snug on the arms and through the legs. It pulls a bit in my crotch when I am standing straight up. It seems to be a pretty excellent fit everywhere except in the ass area and the lower back. It looks like I pooped my pants. When I am in a riding position it snugs up a bit in the ass but its the lower back area that seems really loose. Am I missing something here? Is this how one piece suits fit? The front is pretty tight so there isnt any room there, its just the lower back.

Sound like it fits perfect. You should not be able to stand straight up in a one piece suit without a little tugging down below. Get in the tuck position and it should fell just fine. It will also break in after your first 3-4 rides.
