If I have a size 42 chest and am 5 feet 1 inch what size suit do I get. Is a 7mm suit going to be warm in cold water and what type of suit is waterproof.
Unfortunately you are going to come into an issue sizing wetsuit no matter what manufacturer you turn to. The manufacturers work on a general chart of averages. That means that their chart states that "most folks with a 42" chest/bust are generally so tall" and that''s the range they use. In this case based on that, they say you should be a ladies 2 or 3XL. The only problem with that is your feet and hands aren''t going to make it to the end of the sleeves or legs. It''s unfortunately a pretty safe bet that you are going to quite possibly go the custom wetsuit route. There are 2 ways to handle this. You can purchase the 3xl suit and have it altered at a facility that cuts and sews neoprene in your local area or you could contact this same facility to have a complete custom suit made. We typically find the best way of finding who can do this for you is to pop into a local shop and ask them where in the area they get their suits repaired.
