The woman that had it happen posts here and yes the rig was the right size.

Can you provide a link to her post?

Was she using the bungee?

No and no. The incident gets mentioned occasionally when this discussion comes up.

Right now she and her husband are down in Nicaragua getting drunk and running amok.

She is a former gymnast and very flexible. She found herself hanging by her knees and armpits after opening. No "butt strap."

To the OP: If you insist on a strap, one can be made easily. Most jumpers are satisfied with a simple bungee made from shock cord. All you need is the little loops on your legstrap pads. Most new rigs have them already. If not, it's 5 minutes with a bartack machine to make and attach them.
Talk to your local rigger to see what your options are.

Edit to change from legstraps to legstrap pads. Duh. Blush
