How should a women's summer wetsuit fit ?
We always stock many of the best brands as each brand will fit differently, trying on a summer wetsuit is the best way to achieve the best fit for you, our staff can help and advise on wetsuit fitting and tips to make putting on a wetsuit easier, we do find that ladies new to wearing wetsuits think the neck seals are too tight at first but these need to be snug to create a seal, this stops the wetsuit from excess flushing and keeping you warmer.
When can I wear a Summer wetsuit in the UK ?
Depending on your location in the UK the waters can warm up and cool down different times, but generally you should be able to start to use a summer 3mm full suit around May till October, once the water temperature is 15 degrees or above. The better your summer wetsuit the warmer you will be so GBS (glued - Blind-stitched) seams will help keep out the water, taped seams will help the seams stay water tight for longer and thermal linings will help insulate you.
