Hi They are very helpfull at BJ Sherrif.

They sent me out a couple of sizes (card details given) I just sent back the one that did not fit.

Remember you are not on the cat-walk! go for comfort not style, so maybe the next size up.
My own recent experience of Sherriff suits is that they are BIG. I am 6' 3" and have purchased other suits claiming to fit up to 6' 6" and which didn't. With this in mind I ordered a larger suit from Sherriffs and found it to be too big for me. I would suggest that you go for the EL one. You can always swap it..............
