I'd like to see it too, just for the fun factor, but I think it'd be too tight to fit and you'd struggle to get it on, more to get it off. :D Might need some suit lube handy, or worse, scissors. If it won't budge, stop. No good if you rip a suit.

I once wore a boys size 12 O'neill Hammer springsuit. Fitted really tight but wearable, even went swimming in it. But eventually it got too uncomfortable when the neoprene lost stretch. Sadly I replaced it with a Billabong small.
