Dainese suit size for a huskier fella?

I am 5'11 197 lbs and i know those italians design for somewhat lankier guys. is there anyone in here who's around my size with a dainese suit?

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.
Thanks from Alpha Male

56 might be good. I'm 5'11" 210 and wear a 58 but that's because I have a big chest and want to fit a back protector and chest protector.
Thanks from Ductape

I am 6'2" 220 muscly build and wear a size 58 Alpinestars GP Tech suit. I know it isn't Dainese but it is still Italian.

You should call Audrey at MotoLiberty in Dalls Texas. She sells Dainese and RS Taichi. Audrey will fit you correctly, she knows the product and she is easy to work with. Audrey may require a security deposit (it will depend on your conversations with her) but typically she will ship you suits until you find the right one. Also, she has the ability to take an RS Taichi suit and make slight modifications to it so it will fit you. Audrey can also have a tailor made suit for you straight from the RS Taichi factory in Japan. Audrey also sells Arai and Alpinestar. It is a killer shop and the staff is very experienced and helpful. This is not a store with a bunch of "cool dude" guys working behind the parts counter.

Yep you are a 56 euro in Dianese, the Laguna suit runs a little small BUT Dianese leather is soft and mostly broken in unlike alpine stars which is much more stuff and tight.

I find Dainese tight on the shoulders.

Most places will tell you the suit should be tight beware of that advice as you don't want a race fit but it should not be baggy. You also have a good backprotector to consider.

Order through Revzilla etc as they have free returns and will work with you to get the right fit.

Good luck
