I am 245lbs. About 280 with gear.
I got a really really baggy suit for RW. And a normal suit for freeflying. It is impossible to stiffly with a really baggy suit.
Most Suit manufacturers have some form of classifying their suits.
Just lets them know you fall fast and need help slowing down.

There are also jump suits that offer swoop cords that are attached to wings that will help you slow down.
You will also slow down more when you jump a bit more. Give it some time.

For my bigger customers, I've had great sucess with Tony Suits. Their web site offers great descriptions on which suits are appropriate for you body type. Feel free to PM me with any specific questions that might come up.
