Wetsuit Size Guide

Jump to:

Mens - Womens - Kids - Gloves - Hoods

When buying a wetsuit you need to make sure it fits you correctly. Buying an ill-fitting wetsuit can be a waste of money as it’s not going to keep you warm in the water. We recommend that before you buy a wetsuit check the size chart.

Be aware that every manufacturer uses a slightly different standard, just because you buy a medium t-shirt doesn’t mean you’re a medium wetsuit. We’re all different shapes and sizes and you may find that some brands of wetsuit will fit your body shape better than others. If you find that you are between two sizes, then we would suggest choosing the size that you are closest to.

We hope that you find this information helpful when choosing the right wetsuit size for you. If you’re in doubt feel free to call us on 01548 854 660 (Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm) or you can drop us an email at store@magicseaweed.com and we’d be more than happy to help. Check out the MSW Wetsuit Guide for more information on wetsuit sizing.

You can find all the wetsuits we carry on our wetsuit page.

Please Note: Not all sizes are available across all styles and brands, please check individual wetsuit listings.

Womens Wetsuit Size Chart

Please note, the sizing we use on the site represents the size printed inside the wetsuit, this is often a US size, but can vary depending on the brand, we always recommend looking at the relevant size chart on this page to make sure you are buying a suitable size.

Even more so than mens wetsuits, the different brands often have different cuts which can make a big difference to how well the wetsuit fits, the size chart is a great way of checking that you're getting the best size of wetsuit for you but you might find that you are a different size in a different brand.

Billabong Logo

Billabong wetsuits offer great value, their womens size chart is different to all the other brands, they print a European/Australian size and a US size inside the wetsuit, we've spoken to Billabong who say the European/Australian size is equivalent to a UK size, the US size conversion is calculated differently to other brands though so we'd recommend using the size chart to get the right size.
