hi folks,

I don't know if this is the right place to ask but imma try my luck.

I recently started a cursus for my diving license and wanted to buy a wetsuit. But the problem is that I can't seem to find any brand that fits my size. I am 199m tall my weight is 67kg chest size of 88cm and hips are 91cm. I think you can see my problem.

I have looked into some custom suits, but with my length I'll always be paying a lot for beggining to dive (Because I am a 16 year old boy getting payed minimum wage in the Netherlands)

I hope anyone has some suggestions, and otherwise I look more into custom suits.

Sadly custom or getting one tailored is about the only options.

Lots of bench press, bro! j/k
Check out Fourth Element, the L Tall or XL Tall are pretty close other than the chest size. If you can find a local store that has those off sizes in stock, you could try them out to see.

I am over 2m (but ~113Kg) and many years ago I bought a Henderson hyperstretch 3mm. I am built more like a basketball player not football (US). It fits well. However the chest sizing for you might be an issue. Maybe you can find something similar, like a tall and not large tall size.
You might also consider a surfing wetsuit though it is made differently.
Lastly you could go two piece. I also have a 3mm jacket (front zipper) and kayak pants. You could size them seperately. That could be cheaper than a custom wetsuit.
