Excellent purchase

I knew on Instagram. I’m a scuba diver, I follow a lot of scuba diving/free diving profiles. I don’t remember the exact profile, but when I saw Slipins’ whale shark wetsuit, I immediately fell in love with it and so I decided to give a better look on the website. I found a lot of wonderful wetsuits! But the first love is never forgotten, so I decided to buy whale shark wetsuit. I wore it for the first time just two weeks ago when I was in Maldives: I was very proud to wear it and to show it, every diver remained impressed by the extraordinary design of the wetsuit. Trust me, it’s a jewel to wear! I think I’m going to buy other wetsuit with different fantasy because they are fantastic!!!

It looks fantastic, and I wish I could upload a picture. I am 5’2” ~110lbs and the XXS fit perfect. The material is quality as well. 10/10 would buy again.

A dream come true!

I dealt with a skin disorder in the past and needed to cover my whole body while out in the sun near the water. I have been looking for a suit like this for the past 11 years and I'm so happy to have finally found it!! Its beautiful, the fabric is super soft and the extremely comfortable. I struggled choosing the right size because although my measures fitted the ones stated for size "S" the length of my torso stretched the fabric in the back of the suit. As other customer suggested: "if between two sizes choose the largest" . Thanks to the excellent customer service I was able to exchange it. I was afraid that size M would fit loosely or be too long but it is almost the same as size S but with more room for my curves! I hope this helps if struggling with choosing the right size- my measurements are: Height: 5'3" Chest: 34" Waist: 25" Hips: 37" Weight: 115 lbs I'll be buying size "L" next time just because I'm not afraid it will be too lose; since I'll be using it for sun protection, I don't need it to be skin tight. Thank you so much for such great product!

The most fashionable thing underwater

I happen to wear many different brands of wetsuits but there is only one kind of skin guard that I wear and that is a Slipins. I love the designs and the material, my first one is going on 4 years and it still looks new. every where I go people want to get one or they want to take mine out of my hands. these are really original designs, especially with the ability to lock the thumbs and heels for ease of wetsuit entry. Also, big feature! I never worry about how my bathing suit looks after a dive because I'm covered there is no risk of accidents or wardrobe malfunctions.

Love it!!

In love with the Whale Shark from the first moment. I have size M, unfortunately the crotch is a tiny bit too far down (I have long legs), but it doesn't bother me. Super comfortable to wear, fits like a second skin. Also very friendly customer support. This was definitely not my last purchase at Slipins!
