Wetsuit size chart 

It is evident that there are many diving wetsuit brands. These brands are determined to produce the best wetsuits for divers. All of them have their own wetsuit size charts. Buyers are expected to go through the size charts in order to pick the right size.

Mostly, the sizes are between XXS and XXL. You are expected to choose between that range. Definitely, you will find your preferred size between that range. Make sure you pay attention to the size chart. This is one of the most important tips in choosing the right wetsuit size. It is very accurate to select your size in relation to every metric provided on the wetsuit size chart, like height, hip, waist, and chest.  

 

Know your body size 

Be well-versed with your body size. This is a vital tip. It will guide you in purchasing the right wetsuit size. You can have your measurements taken just before purchasing your wetsuit. The measurements will determine if you need the extra large (XL) or Medium tall (MT). Compare your measurements against the available wetsuits. Definitely, you will find a wetsuit that fits you perfectly. With the right wetsuit size, you can enjoy your surfing and diving. That is what you need as a diver.
