Decide if you need a wetsuit
If you are an athlete who is serious about your performance, you may be considering purchasing a wetsuit. Wetsuits are specially designed to help swimmers move through the water more efficiently, and they can provide a significant competitive advantage. But before you purchase a wetsuit, it’s important to make sure that you choose the right size. In this article, we’ll provide some tips on how to size a wetsuit for your next race.
When you’re choosing a wetsuit, it’s important to consider your height and weight. If you’re taller or heavier than average, you may need to purchase a wetsuit that is sized for people who are taller or heavier than average. In general, it’s best to err on the side of caution and choose a wetsuit that is slightly too large rather than one that is too small.
Once you’ve determined your height and weight, you’ll need to take some measurements of your body. Use a tape measure to measure the circumference of your chest and waist. Then, measure the length of your torso from your waist to your chin. With these measurements, you’ll be able to choose a wetsuit that will fit snugly but not too tightly.
When you’re trying on wetsuits, pay close attention to the way they feel when you move. The best wetsuits will allow you plenty of range of motion while still feeling snug and secure. If you’re unsure about which size to choose, it’s always best to ask for help from a salesperson or someone who is experienced in choosing wetsuits.
Take your measurements
To find the right size for a technical racing suit, you’ll need to take a few measurements. The process is similar to finding the right size for a wetsuit.
First, you’ll need to measure your chest. To do this, wrap a measuring tape around the widest part of your chest and make note of the measurement. Next, you’ll need to measure your waist. To do this, wrap the measuring tape around your natural waistline—the smallest point on your torso—and make note of the measurement. Finally, you’ll need to measure your hips. To do this, wrap the measuring tape around the fullest part of your hips and make note of the measurement.
Once you have your measurements, you can consult a size chart to find the right size for you. Technical racing suits are usually available in sizes ranging from XS to XL.
Find a wetsuit size chart
When you’re ready to purchase your first or next wetsuit, you’ll need to find a sizing chart. Most manufacturers have these on their websites. You can also find generic sizing charts online that will give you an idea of what sizes are available from different brands.
Once you have a size chart, you’ll need to take some measurements. For the best fit, it’s best to get someone else to help you with this. You’ll need to measure your chest, waist, hips, and inseam (from the crotch to the ankle).
Once you have your measurements, you can consult the sizing chart to find the right size wetsuit for you. Keep in mind that these are only guidelines – ultimately, it’s up to you to decide what feels comfortable. And don’t be afraid to try on a few different sizes before making your purchase!
Compare your measurements to the size chart
To find the right size for your next tech suit, compare your measurements to the size chart below. If you fall between two sizes, we recommend ordering the larger size for a better fit.
Size Chest (in) Waist (in) Hips (in)
XS 33-35 26-28 36-38
S 35-37 28-30 38-40
M 37-39 30-32 40-42
L 39-41 32-34 42-44
XL 41-43 34-36 44-46
Select a wetsuit size
The first step is to find your height and weight. If you’re on the borderline between two sizes, always choose the larger size. You can always adjust a wetsuit with a belt or other fastener, but you can’t make a wetsuit larger.
Next, take a look at the size chart and find the row that matches your height. Then, look across to find your weight. If you see your weight in pounds (lbs), start with the number in parentheses next to it. For example, if you weigh 155 lbs and are 5’7″ tall, you would look for the row labeled “5’7″ (140 lbs).
This will give you a general idea of what size wetsuit to try on. If you have any specific questions or concerns about sizing, feel free to reach out to us at [email protected] We’re happy to help!
Try on the wetsuit
Wetsuits come in all shapes and sizes. There are different brands, neoprene thicknesses, and even different cuts. The main thing you want to focus on when you first put on a wetsuit is the fit. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
-The wetsuit should be snug, but not too tight. You should be able to move freely in the suit without it restricting your movement.
-The neoprene should not pinch or bind in any areas. If it does, it will be uncomfortable and can cause chafing.
-The seams should lay flat against your skin and not rub or chafe.
-The zipper should lay flat and not rub or chafe.
-There should be no gaps between the neoprene and your skin. If there are, water will enter the suit and you will get cold quickly.
Make sure the wetsuit fits properly
To ensure the wetsuit fits properly, it is important to take several measurements of your body. Firstly, take your height and weight. Next, use a measuring tape to measure the circumference of your neck, chest, and waist. Finally, measure the inseam of your legs from the crotch to the ground. With these measurements, you can find a wetsuit that fits snugly against your body without being too tight.
