We've found approximately a third of people don't fit a standard sized wetsuit, so if you want the best fit, maximum warmth and top performance then our Custom fit wetsuit option is it. Custom fit can be applied to any of our wetsuit models for all kinds of conditions, are hand-crafted on site, and made to your measurements and shape.
Why do I need a custom-fit?
A wetsuit is an integral part of the quiver of every water sports enthusiast. A correctly fitted wetsuit insulates and protects the wearer from cold water, wind and abrasion. An ill-fitting wetsuit will lower your core body temperature and be very uncomfortable to wear for too long. If too big or loose in any areas, (ie. arms, neck, torso, legs) you will get water flushing through the suit and chaffing occurring around the areas where there is extra rubber. If too small or tight in any areas, especially torso length, you will get pressure points and extra stress areas on seams and panels, the wetsuit will not be as flexible and may be harder to move in.
With most other brands your only option is a standard size.
A Seventhwave wetsuit Custom-Fit to your 22 unique measurements is the most comfortable and warmest wetsuit you will ever own. After you complete the custom order form with your 22 measurements, these are analyzed to establish your correct fitting size and adjustments are made where a bad ﬁt occurs. It takes 10-15 working days to complete production before being delivered to you.
