Getting your wetsuit size right is very important, which is why we created this wetsuit sizing guide! A wetsuit should fit like a second skin, tight but not restrictive, sitting flush against all the nooks and crannies of your body. For example the small of your back in order to keep your kidneys warm, and high on your neck to create a good seal and prevent flushing in the wetsuit. The length in the suit is also very important too ensure a good fit around the torso, especially the shoulders where it is important to keep the maximum amount of flexibility.
The length is also key with winter wetsuits, as it is likely you will be wearing wetsuit gloves
and wetsuit boots
, the suit needs to flush to your wrist and ankle in order to create a good seal with the boots and gloves. Wetsuit Manufacturers such as O'Neill, Rip Curl and Billabong have made sizing a wetsuit much easier these days by creating a variety of sizes such as medium tall and large short, making it much easier to find an off the rack wetsuit which fits well. In reality the different manufacturers wetsuits have quite different cuts and shapes, meaning a MT in Billabong may fit you better than a MT in O'Neill, so we created this wetsuit size chart to help!
