1. GET MEASURED
Please don’t guess your size. Your size and weight may have changed, so grab a tape measure and jump on the scales. When calculating your wetsuit size, if your weight falls into two or more sizes always go for the larger size… If in doubt GO UP A SIZE!
2. GET A CALENDAR
Okay, so what do we mean? In all honesty, remember your age. Whether you like it or not, we all change shape and size. Check yourself out in the mirror, understand your body shape and type, chances are it may have changed from when you last bought a wetsuit. It’s also a great idea to ask some else to describe your shape and size, as you may think you’re a skinny racing snake when in actual fact you probably have a little more padding than you thought.
3. GO UP A SIZE
We’ve said it before, but we really want to get this message across - the best advice we can give is to go up a size. There is nothing worse than going through the excitement of your new HUUB wetsuit arriving and then realising you’ve been a little ambitious and gone for a size you would like to be, rather than your actual size.
OH, AND IF IN DOUBT... GO UP A SIZE
For us the weight is the most important factor when getting the suit to fit right, although the height is significant, it is secondary to the weight. If you are at the top end of a weight range or fall into two sizes it is best to go for the bigger size or up to the next size. Height does need to be considered, but it's not paramount to a suit fitting. If you are at the bottom end of a height range or just outside, for example, the legs might come up a little long, but these can be trimmed down (please stick within the limits of the taped inside seam). The arms will fit securely where ever they come up on the forearm. For a lot of athletes, it is personal preference as to where they like the legs and arms fitted.
