I've got a bit of a belly my self and what I've been thinking of doing is just lean into it and set the belly as the point to scale to. It'd make the whole suit bigger but I'd just pad it out to fit into it. If you're doing a spartan they're tall anyway so platform to make yourself taller.

i feel like even with 6 inch platforms id end up looking like the combo of gimli and master chief
found this on amazon... and im kindof digging the medieval/halo combo of leather and tech at least the picture i have in my head

dont think of it as a corset tho think of it as a kidney belt that would fit under the mark 6 chestplate

In the end, the biggest part about armor is making it fit proportionally to you. You can increase or decrease the size, but if it’s not proportional it’s a lot more noticeable than one that is

i use one of these because i have a gut and feel the way you do so i tryed a corset like you are looking at and if you get it to tight it can put pressure on your lungs and heart. i found these back braces at harbor freight and they are like 10.00 i use one for work and i use one for my master chief costume. i still have a slight belly but not real bad enough that it dont draw attention to my gut.. i say give it a try cant hurt..
they have them in all sizes i wear a xlarge you want it slightly smaller so it hold you tight a XXL is more my size but this one will stretch as i need it.

Hey Brazen, I'm seeing a lot of double and triple posts from you. Please be more mindful of forum etiquette. This is not discord. Edit your posts if no one has responded.

I'm 5' 8" and 230 pounds. I chose the Jorge chest for a similar reason as DeltaAlphaZulu mentioned. The shield generator sits right above my belly hiding it a little bit. I also have 2.5" heel raises in my boots to help proportion the height weight ratio. I'm also mindful of my posing and try not to let anyone shoot me from the side.

Funny enough, I was just about to mention the Grenedier chest parts. Also a padded compression shirt could probably halp a little.
