You won't be able to pull yourself in quite as hard and you won't get that same pop without the suit but it's the same idea: start with your shoulders in a position that you want them to finish in.
Cheers LtL, still getting my head round sumo setup so thanks for that. And if I ever need an excuse to buy a deadlift suit this is it.

Not bad. I'm trying to approach my 140kg x 10 belted PB with my beltless, heels raised squat. Inside left knee is a little tender from the front squats a week ago but nothing serious, no pain during squats with strict knees out.
I suck at inclines. Really have to focus on keeping my upper back tight and not letting my right shoulder slip forward.
Hardly any of my t-shirts fit anymore, they're all like crop tops.
