Exclamation Can a Squat Suit Double as a DL suit?

This question has came up in my head, I have read in some places that a squat suit can be used as a DL suit. Is this possible?

I ordered Inzer z suit an was wondering if It was able to be used as a DL suit!

It works especially well if you deadlift sumo. I pull conventional and never got much out of a suit, even with my lower numbers. It takes so much effort to get into any sort of good position that it throws you way off.

Yes.
You may need to adjust the suit leg either higher or lower, particularly on the inside of the leg.
Also, the belt may need to be pushed down lower or pulled up higher around your torso.
Undergarments can play a factor also...how tight they are and if they have legs on them or are briefs only.
Experiment a little. It won't take too long to discover what works best for you.
