I have - ahem - good child-bearing hips (proved) and there's no way I'd fit
into Spouse's boilersuits. He must be all of 32" round his bum.
But I fit into larger sized boiler suits with no problem.
There's no need to share everything!
Never mind the ladies, I can't wear a boiler suit of any size.
I'm not fat but tall and the distance between the shoulders and gusset on
all the suits I've tried is 2-3" too short.
The consequence is that the sensitive parts would be pulled up hard by the
gusset, very uncomfortable ... :-(
I have the same problem.
Reminds me of the old joke about the man bringing back his new
trousers with the complaint
"These trousers remind me of the ballroom in the city hall"
"But there is no ballroom in the city hall, sir"
"Just like these trousers "

It sounds like an excuse to me, where there's a will there's a way.
In our household Spouse does all the welding, brazing, soldering etc. He
also does all the machine sewing.
I do all the hand sewing and none of the mechanical stuff. That's what men
The tall poster could easily cut a straight line through the boiler suit
(with gas if he prefers, and a water spray) and then stitch a straight piece
in, with very large stitches. It's not haute couture after all.
Though if the boiler suit is made in a man made fibre - most of them are in
my experience - he could do a welding job on it.
Or use sticky backed fabric which doesn't even need stitching. Vylene it's
Hope this helps.
