I wanted a boiler suit for a Michael Myers Halloween costume, and being well above average height I knew I'd have to try a few to find one that fits.The three I tried were: 

Portwest S999NATXL size XL Tall. Body fits ok, sleeves slightly short but wearable, leg length actually a little long. Thin material, poppers on the front, feels and looks cheap, although this is reflected in the price. 

Blue Castle 366/BK sizes 46, 48  and 50. Body was too short on the 46 could not even get it on. 48 was too short in the body and sleeves, and the width of the body was huge - it totally drowned me. This boiler suit was much much better quality than the Portwest one and was slightly cheaper as well. More pockets, thicker fabric, zip on the front as opposed to poppers. I wish this had fitted me because the quality for the price was excellent.

Dickies WD4839 size 48 long leg. Body fits really well, can wear a couple of thin layers underneath if required. Reaching overhead does bring the crotch into my groin, but this was the same on the Portwest. Mobility is otherwise very good. Quality was superb, as it should be for the price, Sleeves exactly the right length. Legs could do with being maybe an inch longer for my preference but they are very wearable. The body shape flattered me more than the others as well, it seems to be cut to hide my (very slight) belly. 

None of these were perfect, but between the two wearable ones for my bodytype (Portwest and Dickies), despite being considerably more expensive (£28 vs £19), I much preferred the Dickies.
If you're a few inches shorter than me/have a short torso and are of larger build then definitely try out the Blue Castle coveralls.
If you're my height then it depends on whether you want slightly longer legs/shorter arms/cheaper price (Portwest) or longer arms/shorter legs/higher quality (Dickies).
