HOW TO CHOOSE THE CORRECT SIZE OF YOUR SUIT

ASK SOMEONE TO TAKE YOUR BODY MEASUREMENTS.

When taking your measurements, it is important that you stand up straight and that you keep the measuring tape as close to the body as possible. See below on how to measure and write down your measurements.

CHECK THE SIZE CHARTS.

Choose the chart that corresponds best to your measurements. Standard, plus, tall or tall/plus. To ensure accuracy, check more than one size chart.

MARK YOUR MEASUREMENTS IN THE SIZE CHART.

See the example below.

CHOOSE YOUR SIZE.

Choose a size that approximates the average of all your measurements. It is normal for your measurements to be spread out throughout different sizes. Our suits have enough allowance and range of motion to accommodate these variations. Soft body-parts like the belly can be ”compressed” a bit while head and neck measurements are not as important on a suit. If you’re buying a drysuit it is important to take into consideration the thickness of the undergarment you usually wear. If you wear very thick undergarments you might want to consider a larger size for comfort. If you are unsure about what size to choose please contact your dealer.

CHECK IF THE SUIT IS AVAILABLE.

Look the suit up on the homepage and check if it is available in your size.

EXAMPLE 1: MEN´S WETSUIT

 

Richard most likely fits in both the ML and L sizes. But as he explains, “I’m broad-shouldered, and when I buy clothes they are usually tight over the shoulders and back, so I opt to buy the larger of the two alternatives, or the size Large”. The larger measurements on hips and neck-to-wrist are ok on either the ML or L sizes because a wetsuit is very stretchable.

EXAMPLE 2: LADIES FRONT ZIPPED DRYSUIT

 

Lisa checks the size tables and finds that she is closest to a Medium Plus size in the PLUS size chart. She also checked the STANDARD size chart but found that the suits are too tall compared to her height. Therefore she chooses the M/+ size.

DISCLAIMER

Size really matters! Despite similarities in measurements or weight, every person’s body is unique. Our size chart is a good starting point to estimate your size but because a wetsuit should really fit like a second skin, we highly recommend that you visit an authorised dealer to ensure a perfect fit. Although all our dry suits have a generous cut that allows plenty of room to comfortably fit a standard under-suit, the different thicknesses of different undergarments designed for various environments needs to be taken into account. The best way to achieve the perfect sizing is to test your drysuit with your own personal under-suit to make sure it fits perfectly. We advise specifically against buying from other sources. It is better to be safe than sorry, so please seek support from your local dealer.
