Because all Ed did was attach Al's soul to the armor, he didn't make the armor. In fact, the armor was already in the basement
As you can see, behind Ed and Al are 2 sets of armor. In the 2003 anime, there is even a shot of these in the opening scene of the first episode.
While the image isn't really clear, we know this is Al's armor as after Ed returns from the Gate, the armor he uses to bind Al's soul falls next to him
Given where it falls and the angle, we can rule out the other armor that's behind Al.
Here is the scene in question from Brotherhood on YouTube
You can see that after the armor falls, Ed crawls to it and draws the blood seal. Beyond that, binding Ed does no more alchemy to the armor.
Since the binding cost Ed his arm even with the unique trait where he can do transmutations without a circle, he can't do it without another arm. So even if Ed wanted to morph the armor into a better shape, he can't and (after the initial shock) Al was more worried for Ed losing so much blood that he's what he looked like now.
