Would you have to take a bigger size by just using your bust-size?
That's what I was using as meassurement and passed on to my friends to help them choosing theirs.
If usually should be easy to put your arms into the holes and pull over your head. After that many have encountered problems with it, as it bunches up.
Try to roll it out if that's the case and tug it down on the back first, then over the breasts.
If DO have problems with getting even as far as getting it over your head, you might want to check your bust size ONLY and say that you accidentally ordered the wrong size and if you could exchange it for the bigger size.
You might be lucky and they'll exchange it for free, but most likely you will be asked to pay porto of the return and the sending of the new one, as well as the difference it the bigger size is more expensive.
In the worst case they won't exchange it, but I kinda doubt that.
If that happens you can always mention it to your cosplay friends that you are selling it if it would fit any of them or put up a note here. You'll probably have to offer it for cheaper if you do so.
EDIT: If they don't exchange it, you could try washing it carefully in warm water, it might stretch a bit more. Or, if you have a chair or something in practical size where you can put it over to stretch, that might also work.
I wouldn't recommend on doing it thought, if you have the chance at exchanging it. It's meant to stretch while you breath after all and if you have to stretch it beforehand to get it on in the first place...
Well, it's bound to cause problems.
