Sizing Tips for Men
Men's wetsuit sizes are provided as shirt sizes, meaning they range from XS to 3XL. Short and tall cuts are also given to accommodate people between sizes, signified by an ’S’ or ’T’ after the size (e.g. ‘ST’ for ‘Small Tall’ or ‘LS’ for ‘Large Short’).
The most important factors in sizing wetsuits for men are height, waist and chest measurements, as it is in the fit in the torso that is pivotal in the suit's ability to keep you warm.
Guys will sometimes feel a tightness in areas such as the shoulders and thighs when first trying on the suit, but it is worth keeping in mind that the neoprene will give a little after a couple of uses, so this is not really an issue, as long as it doesn't feel so tight it's restrictive or uncomfortable.
Sizing Tips For Women
Women’s wetsuit sizes are provided as dress sizes, meaning a ‘4’ is a dress size 4. It is worth noting that the sizes printed on the wetsuits are often in US sizes, we display the sizes of our women's wetsuits in both US and UK, so there is no confusion, for example when buying a UK size 6 it will appear like this: 4 (UK6).
In instances where your size varies between the top and bottom half of your body, opt for the larger size as the neoprene should be able to stretch to give an even fit all over.
As with the men’s, women’s suits are also cut in short (’S’) and tall (’T’) options. So an ‘8S’ is an ‘8 Short’ and a ‘10T’ is a ’10 Tall’.
