If you're looking to buy a new swimming wetsuit, it can be tough to know where to start. There are so many different brands and styles available, it can be hard to figure out which one is right for you. In this blog post, we will discuss the different factors you need to consider when choosing a new wetsuit, and we will give you some tips on how to find the perfect one for your needs.


The wetsuit should fit nice and snug against your body, although not too tight around your neck and body. You don’t want the wetsuit to create any pain or excessive restriction. Remember that the leg and arm holes will fit a little tighter, as you don’t want water travelling through the wetsuit via these areas.


There are a range of brands and styles of wetsuits. When making a choice it is important to establish what you are using the wetsuit for. It is also important to know your swimming ability. These factors assist in finding the correct style/model of wetsuit is best for your needs.
