Most likely if you are falling forward in the hole, it isn’t the suit that needs adjusted. Work on more upper back strength so you can stay more upright, and focusing on your hips opening up. The suit won’t pull you forward unless you are guarding your hips or not locking in your upper back. One exercise you can try doing to make sure that your hips are opening correctly is the hip airplane, which Brain talks about as a warm up in the ten twenty life book. While you are working on your strength and ability to repair these issues, adjusting the suit looser at the thigh should help. The tighter it is on your legs, the more effort (or weight) it will take to push out against.
