I'm almost exactly your size; 5'11" and was 220+ lbs, am now 195 lbs and my Dainese Laguna one piece is perfect for me and has enough room for a back protector. I have a long torso and it was a bit tight in the nutsack region for a while, but the leather is good quality and does stretch slightly as you wear it in.. I wear a 56. In fact, you can see me wearing said suit in my Avatar picture to the left..
Thanks from Ductape

After trying on several veloster and avro suits, 56 was too small and 60 too big so 58 it is.

My weakness seems to be the thickness across my shoulders, and a slightly longer torso.

Ordering a 58 laguna seca

I'm 5'11 and 190 but I had given up hope for a one piece. I'm not very flexible and I want it to be a solo effort. Problem is the knee puck area gets too low as I go up in chest size. Hence the zip-together 2 piece.

I'm 6'2 205 lbs and I couldn't fit any Dainese gear comfortably. That whole "euro fit" is not made for bigger folks like us.

I've been wearing the other Italian manufacture, Spidi and 56 Euro fits me perfectly.

There are none around my area to try on unfortunately so i'm gonna order one using an educated guess. eu 56? my upper chest, shoulders and arms are thick.

looking at laguna seca or similar 1 piece.
In the same boat as you same height almost same weight (i'm 185 pound with very wide shoulders) and i cant find any one piece suit that will fit me. To custom order one is $8000+ AUD and there is no freaking way i am going to spend that kind of money just to have a brand name from Italy.

I'm 5'11" 195lb and couldn't get a Dainese standard size suit to fit. 56 was to small and 58 was a little big. I have a longer torso and shorter legs so in a 56 I couldn't even get my other arm in the suit. So I went the custom fit route.

Dainese are a little narrow, i would personally go try a Alpinestar they tend to but a little roomier
