The images below were captured by Ulli Lotzmann from 16-mm film taken during the 4 April 1972 LM/LRV checkout. Note that because, on Earth, the suits are more compressed than they will be in the weaker lunar gravity field, belt length and fit were checked in 1/6th-g aircraft flights. I do not know if the same belt length was used in the LM/LRV checkout. If so, they would not have fitted as tightly during the checkout as they did in the 1/6th-g aircraft or on the Moon.
