If you are a keen lady who enjoys water sports in the United Kingdom, you need a women's shorty wetsuit during the hot summer months. Summer is the perfect time to hit the water, whether you are a surfer, kayakerstand-up paddleboarder or sea swimmer.

Women's shorty wetsuits are made in two different versions. Both types have short legs, but you can get long sleeved shorty wetsuits with short-style legs too.

The women's long sleeve shorty wetsuit is a little warmer on a windy day and will protect you from wind chill.

Shorty wetsuits for women are usually 2mm or 3mm, and sometimes a combination of the two. It is common to have a 3mm body and 2mm shoulders and arms.

The seams on a lady's shorty wetsuit are usually a flatlock stitch style or a blind stitched seam. The flat lock lets in water, and the blind stitched seam keeps water out. The flatlock is an inexpensive way of manufacturing a ladies' shorty wetsuit. The blind stitched version is much warmer but costs a little more. Keeping a small layer of water that you are not flushing with cold water, with the help of glued taped or blind stitched seams, will stretch the days you can be in a shorty wetsuit.

Getting in and out of a ladies' shorty wetsuit is usually done with a zip. If the zip is at the back, it will make getting in and out of it more manageable. A zip at the front will be more requires a different technique to get the suit on , but the suit will be warmer as the neck will fit better and stop any cold water from flushing through the shorty wetsuit, and will be more flexible.

A ladies' summer shorty wetsuit is perfect for comfort and warmth in the UK summer sea. Whether you are a seasoned water sports enthusiast or just starting, a lady's summer shorty wetsuit is an essential piece of water sports equipment to enhance your time on the water.

If you want a three-season wetsuit, check out our range of full-length ladies' wetsuits.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do women's shorty wetsuits keep you warm?

A women's shorty wetsuit will provide some insulation from colder water and helps to keep the body warm, but a full-length wetsuit will keep you warmer. A shorty wetsuit is designed for the summer months in the United Kingdom. For most ladies, a temperature range of (20-26°C)is acceptable for a summer shorty. A women's shorty is not intended for colder water or the UK's winter months.

A Ladies' wetsuit traps a thin layer of water between the body and the suit. This water is warmed by the body's heat, creating a layer of insulation. However, because a shorty wetsuit does not cover the entire body, just the torso, it provides less insulation than a full wetsuit, making it better suited for warmer water temperatures, which are common in the United Kingdom in the summer months.

How tight should a women's shorty wetsuit be?

A women's shorty wetsuit should fit snugly but not be too tight. The wetsuit should be form-fitting and close to the body but not restrictive.

When trying on a shorty wetsuit, ensure you have enough room to move your arms and legs freely, but there should not be prominent wrinkles in the neoprene. The wetsuit should be tight enough to keep water out but not restrict your movement.

If the wetsuit is too tight, it can restrict blood flow, cause discomfort, and reduce flexibility. If the wetsuit is too loose, water will enter the suit and reduce its insulation properties, and it might well chaff you where it will rub.

Try the wetsuit over a swimsuit to ensure a good fit. Stand in a natural, relaxed position and ensure the wetsuit is snug. It should look like a second skin on your whole body.
