How do I know if I’ve got the right size wetsuit?

The answer to the question we always get asked- how do I know if I’ve got the right size wetsuit? Girl, this blog post is for you! 

As a women's surfwear brand dedicated to empowering and equipping female surfers for their adventures in the waves, we understand the importance of a wetsuit that fits just right. Whether you're a seasoned pro or a novice rider, the right fit can make all the difference in your comfort, performance, and overall surfing experience. In this guide, we'll walk you through everything you need to know to ensure that your wetsuit fits you like a second skin.

Snug, But Not Restrictive:

The ideal wetsuit fit should be snug against your body, but not so tight that it restricts your movement or causes discomfort. You should be able to move freely and comfortably in all directions, whether you're paddling out, catching a wave, or duck diving beneath the surface. Pay close attention to areas like the shoulders, chest, and knees, which are common areas for constriction if the wetsuit is too tight.

Minimal Wrinkling or Bagging:

When trying on a wetsuit, take note of any excess fabric or wrinkles, particularly around the torso, crotch, and arms. While some wrinkling is normal, especially when trying on a new wetsuit, excessive bagginess can indicate that the suit is too large and may compromise its thermal insulation and performance in the water. Conversely, if the suit feels too tight and causes significant wrinkling or bunching, it may be too small.

No Gaps or Flushes:

A properly fitting wetsuit should create a tight seal against your skin to prevent water from flushing in and out. Check for gaps or openings around the neck, wrists, and ankles, as these areas are most prone to flushing. 

Comfort is Key:

Above all else, your wetsuit should feel comfortable and allow you to focus on enjoying your time in the water. If you need to try another size to be sure, go for it girl- we offer hassle-free returns. Trust your instincts and choose the wetsuit that feels like it was tailor-made for you – because when you feel incredible, you surf incredible.


In conclusion, finding the perfect fit for your wetsuit is essential for maximising your comfort, performance, and enjoyment in the water. By following these guidelines and paying attention to key fit indicators like snugness, wrinkle-free fit, sealing against water, appropriate length, and overall comfort, you can confidently select the wetsuit that's right for you. So dive in, find your perfect fit, and get ready to ride the waves in style and comfort!
