    Being 6'8" (2.03cm) I have a hard time trying to find things that fit me looking for undergarments for my dry suit that are tall and warm

    I'm a bit shorter then you are, but with the same problem.

    For drysuit and undergarment, I had one made to size (Otter).

    For wet suit; I have separate shorts and lavacore + hooded vest. That way they can overlap a bit. Normal suits are indeed, either (way) too wide, or (way) too short.

    I am 6’7” (and 3/4”) I have been using off the rack under garments because I don’t really care about perfect fit. It helps that I am only around 240 lbs. if I had a lot of extra girth, getting a fit would be a lot harder. I started buying Henderson wetsuits because they get up to some pretty insane sizes. The one I have has plenty of extra length in the arms and legs. I think it was a 2XL2T or something weird. I only found out the size existed because the LDS told me it existed.
