2XU Wetsuit Fit, Sizing & Care Guide
How should my 2XU Wetsuit fit?
Your suit should fit adequately in terms of both your height and weight. In the case that you fit into more than one size, you should opt for the smaller size. While 2XU Wetsuits come in both men's and women's styles, some females prefer the fit of a men's suit. This is fine. On the arms, your wetsuit sleeves should finish at least one finger gap in distance from your wrist bone. This will ensure the suit is sitting high enough and does not pull on the shoulders. In the legs, the wetsuit legs should finish 3/4 of the way down your shin. This will ensure the suit is sitting high into the crutch. If sitting too low, the suit will pull on the top of the shoulders.
Around the neck, the wetsuit should be firm but not to the point that breathing is restricted. If the neck bunches at all, the suit is too big. The neck is the number one area water can enter the suit, so it needs to be secure. For specific sizing, please refer to our Size Charts. If you're unsure about size choice, feel free to call our staff team in Adelaide (+61 8 72261994) pop into our Cycle Closet store in Adelaide to try on for a perfect fit.

1. AVOID CONTACT OF THE SMOOTH SKIN SIDE OF THE NEOPRENE WITH ANYTHING ABRASIVE.
Your 2XU wetsuit is designed for open water swimming and shouldn’t be used for diving, sailing or wind surfing
The rough side of the hook and loop (velcro) closures at the top of the zip can compromise the smoothskin surface if not fullly covered when swimming
2. AVOID USE IN CHLORINATED POOLS
Chlorine may compromise the life of the wetsuit STORAGE AND MAINTENANCE
1. AT THE END OF A SEASON CAREFULLY CHECK YOUR SUIT INSIDE AND OUT
Check all seams and the zip to make sure teeth are there and working smoothly
Check for fingernail cuts or fragile seams which may require repair.
2. GET REPAIRS DONE IMMEDIATELY
Minor repairs such as fingernail cuts can be easily fixed at home with neoprene glue.

STORAGE AND MAINTENANCE
1. THOROUGHLY RINSE YOUR WETSUIT IN FRESH WATER
Rinse your wetsuit straight after use. A garden hose or shower work equally well.
