I went with a L in the San Remo suit so the legs/pad would fit properly, but the top is super tight, which is ok, since that's the point of a speedsuit.
Weirdly, I am 6' and 180lb, and wear a M in Assos, Castelli and others (and a L jersey). I have a very short torso, and i find the L size gives my boys a little more wiggle room to move around. It is snug around the thighs but nothing exceptionally so.

Getting the effing skinsuit on - ugh, dont get me started. I need to rope in my wife, the neighbors and my dog to get that damn thing on, and always dread the day the zipper is going to pop around my chest.
