Questions and Answers for Mares She Dives 8/6/5mm Trilastic Wetsuit:
Sizing question: I am 52" and weigh 167 lbs. Will the XL be too long? I have this wetsuit in a size 10, which fit perfectly when I was 20 lbs thinner.

The waist and chest are the most important measurements for the fit with a wetsuit. Height usually will work even if it is one to two inches short or tall. Weight will depend on the divers body build and is the last measurement to consider.

Trilastic is our distinctive marking, the symbol of Mares know-how in terms of Neoprene.
At the start, Trilastic was identified with the idea of developing a dive suit with Neoprene sheets of different thicknesses. The greatest thickness is positioned at the core chest area and back, gradually thinning out on the arms and legs down to the wrists and ankles, where the material used is not just thinner but also more elastic, to improve seal and, of course, facilitate putting the suit on and taking it off.
Today, Trilastic has greater meaning. It is a world of materials, linings, finishes, zippers, and technical details that all aim to create the ideal suit for every need and every type of dive. Trilastic means mating the most suitable type of material to each section of the body for that particular type of dive.
