Buying a wetsuit online can be a very painful process, especially if you aren’t clued up regarding all the neoprene terminology. Making sure you get the right wetsuit is crucial, because if the wetsuit is too big, or too small will greatly effect the performance of the wetsuit. The worst kind of wetsuit is a poorly fitted wetsuit. If a wetsuit is too large it will let in excessive amounts of water which will prevent the wetsuit from insulating your body temperature. If your new wetsuit is too small, then it will pinch and be really restrictive. You new neoprene should feel like a second skin and keep you warm and comfortable.
Choosing the correct sizing:
Firstly you will need to weigh and measure yourself precisely, make sure your measurements are exact. You will need to measure your height, weight and chest and after you have these measurements use the brands sizing chart as a guide to which size to go for. All branded wetsuit differ in sizing, just because you are a large in one brand wont mean that you are a large in another brand.

If two of your key measurements are out compared to the sizing chart, you may want to go for the next size up, or even look at a different brand of wetsuit.
If you want to find out which are the best wetsuits on the market, you can use wetsuit review websites. These websites will give you unbiased reviews and give you the pros and cons of each wetsuit. Also use related forums and post to see which wetsuit people are liking or not liking.
Armed with your measurements and your knowledge, it is now time to buy your wetsuit.
