I am the same build as you, 5'7" and slim size everything (even then I usually need a belt) and the Intec Flex Rider body protector works amazingly for me. It is one of the cheapest out there, Beta Level 3 certified (one of the highest possible safety ratings) and incredibly cool and comfortable. It is a pillow to fall on, cheap (for a vest; around $100), and after it breaks in you don't realize you're wearing it. Comes in my size and is very adjustable. You don't need to spend $400 on a body protector to get a good one! And don't go for Tipperary brand. They are very popular because they are EXTREMELY light and flexible but they are not certified at any level and USEA is debating on whether to make them illegal. I've worn one and I can't imagine the flimsy thing giving you really any real protection at all. Go for the slightly more boxy but still comfortable and SAFE vests like my Intec. Here's the link to it on Dover:

Hope that helps.

I have a rodney powell that I really like. It was about $200 online, but definitely worth it ! They take a bunch of measurements of your body so it is really fitted to you and they have a bunch of colors [you can get 2 colors too]. Mine is in light grey and light blue. =]
