No way to accurately tell from those measurements. The most important measurements when purchasing a suit from a sizing chart will always be the waist and chest/bust measurements. Height is a secondary measurement and is next most important followed lastly by weight, which should only be used if you are right on the boarder between two sizes in all other categories.
