  1. Hi,
    So, I too am a tall woman with an athletic build and am looking for a wetsuit. I googled the problem and your site came up. From looking at your pictures I think you weigh about 150ish? I'm about 6' and weigh 160lbs. When I go onto different websites to size myself and they never come back saying a Woman's anything. It always comes up Mens Medium. I have a very small chest and arms so, I can't imagine that I would fit into a Mens. But, you were sampling Womens Mediums and larges?? Did you just ignore their recommendations? Or are some wetsuits actually designed for taller women?
    I'm a newbie and live in a warmer state. So, I'm looking for a sleeveless wetsuit. Any suggestions??

    1. Hi MikesMiles,
      I'm just under 6' and ~130lbs. I was lucky enough to have the wetsuit representatives from each company recommend a size for me. Of course, as you may have read, this didn't always work out--at all. I have a very long torso, which really screws up the measurements. If you're more proportionate than I am (ie. you have long legs and a normal length torso), then you'd probably have better luck with all of these. The Blueseventy Helix might be perfect for you (it's not sleeveless, but the sleeves are very thin). Blueseventy also makes sleeveless suits and so does Xterra. Good luck! And, don't hesitate to try a men's suit!
