Short and Larger Frame: What if the Wetsuit Is Too Long?

Q: Im a short woman with larger frame  Рmost suits that fit me are too long (for taller people). Is that doable?

A: I actually like it if the sleeves and the legs are a little bit too long. Especially in winter wetsuits you don’t want them to crawl up your leg and/or arm. So a little bit too long doesn’t represent a¬†problem. If it is more than an inch or two and you can not find a model that would fit (check the stores here, they have wetsuits of all shapes and sizes) then I would suggest taking your fitting but too long wetsuit to the repair shop where they can professionally shorten the sleeves and legs. Because too much loose neoprene can cause chaffing, wetsuit rash.
