I posted this in another thread, but the points all apply to your question:
Height means nothing. Weigth, and boot size are what you need to be concerned about. You need a board that is wide enough to keep you toe/heel from not over-hanging too much. You also need a board that is designed to flex correctlly with your weight.
That said, some brands make a deck that is 155cm and coveres a weight range of 120-155 (pulling number out of my ass, here). Another brand may make a 155cm deck that covers people up to 200lbs. It really depends on how the board is designed to ride, not the actual size the board is. The best thing you can do is check-out the web sites from various brands. Check out the stats for the boards they make, and look at the suggested weight-ranges for their boards. As a general rule, longer boards handle more weigth, and shorter boards for less weight. However, I know the K2 WWW 152 deck says it can handle people up to 200lbs. So rules, like hymens, are meant to be broken.
Common brands you could check out are:
