DBX Women's Shorty Springsuit
I wanted to start swimming laps at the pool to help lose weight, but am always too cold to get in. I was only cold for about 30 seconds with the wet suit on, and it kept me warm the whole time in the pool. I tried it on backwards the first time, oops, but then my husband told me the zipper goes in the back and that's why there is a string on it to help you unzip it by yourself. It string and the inside of the neckline is hot pink, which is fun, and it fits really well. I thought it would make me look fat, but it sucks you in and shapes nicely. I am normally a size 8, but got a 10 since I have gained weight ( I wear an 8 womens pant size, or 10-12 in juniors) I should have bought a 12 cause its pretty hard to get on, but Im going to keep it anyways in hopes that I will lose a few pounds. Seems very durable and is really comfortable.

For $50 you can't go wrong with this wetsuit. Kept me warm and def served it's purpose. Sizing was off tho. I am typically a size 6 and I had to buy a size 10 wetsuit.

Excellent suit for Aqua-therapy!
I bought this shorty wetsuit for my aqua-therapy sessions and it is absolutely perfect! I was just wearing a regular bathing suit at first, but the water was chilly and after 20 minutes in the pool I started getting cold: this is not good for muscles, especially when you are doing physical therapy in the pool. My therapist wears a wetsuit shorty so I thought I'd "bite the bullet" and get one too to keep me warm. It's really made a difference. Oh, and extra bonus - this suit actually fits a real women's body! I wear a size 14 jeans and the size 14 suit fit perfectly. Thanks Dick's!

I am a true size 6 and ordered the size 8. It was so small I couldn't even zip it! The sizing is totally off!!!!

I haven't been in the water with it yet, but...
I bought this shortie wet suit for a vacation to the Caribbean in January. We'll be doing a lot of snorkeling and I was concerned I would get chilly after being in the water for awhile. So, I'm bringing this along to slip on over my bathing suit if I need to. I tried it on and it fits well (I'm 5'8, 175 lbs and I bought the size 16) not too tight, not too loose and I felt I could move my upper torso pretty well. What I did notice within minutes of having it on is I starting getting HOT. So, this suit will keep me warm and I won't put it on until I'm ready to go in.

So far, so good.
This suit fits just right. It is snug without suffocating me. I haven't tried to swim in yet as it has been so incredibly hot. I bought it as a way of keeping warm when swimming at the gym in the winter. The water temperature makes swimming so uncomfortable because I am focused on how cold I am.

Perfect 1st wetsuit
I've always wanted to try swimming with a wetsuit and didn't know where to begin. This wetsuit was such a great deal that it was well worth the try. And I love it! I have no spots where I get irritated after swimming, and I've used it 3 times for 1+ miles each time. Great purchase!

More comfortable than it looks
I bought it to wear at Tough Mudder to help stay warm. It helped tremendously & was very comfortable throughout the 4.5 hours of running, crawling, swimming, & climbing!!
