Yeah, but most of that is the size of your head. Shoulders to feet are somewhat less

Off on a bit of a tangent - but do bear in mind that if you plan to wear a lifejacket with your Fladen suit, 150N will not be enough. You will need at least 275N to give effective righting

I'd second that too,
We had an angler washed of the local breakwater a few years back he was wearing a floatation suit but no lifejacket ,granted it was rough and near rocks , he was recovered within 15 mins but was sadly dead and face down in the water
