I recently acquired a Lavacore medium full suit. According to the size chart I would be a medium. It was recommended by the shop I go for the large, but I "stood my ground" and stayed with the medium and it fits fine. I was a bit surprised with the "weight" ranges for the sizes. They seemed to be rather "heavy" given the other measurements.
Something to consider. What are you going to use it for? I'm getting mine for undergarment wear in the summer with my drysuit so I'm not wanting tight/snug. If you are planning on wearing it on the outside as a wetsuit then you would want it snug/comfortable. So with this in mind make your choice. Really though, until you try them on you don't know.
For example, I got a XXXL for my top (vest) (51+ chest), and it is not TIGHT, but snug. My shoe size is a 10+ and the med fit w/o being too tight, but snug enough to allow me to fit the socks of the DS.
I am usually a medium, sometimes small depending on cut. I bought a long sleeved Lavacore the Medium was massive, the small too big the XS just about right. Based on my experience I would say the smaller sizes are on the large side.
