SurfSkins/DiveSkins are designed to fit tightly, but with the new Zippered SlipIns styles, we usually find the need to size up one size. The first time you try it on, it should be tight and a little bit of a struggle. We do this to help support musculature and allow the body to work more efficiently, but mainly so you're looking good, held in in all the right places! They have a thumb hole and foot stirrups, so they stay in place when getting in and out of a wetsuit. They are silky soft, so slipping into them feels good. And this silky soft poly/spandex fabric is what makes getting in and out of a wetsuit such a breeze. Also, the sizing has much to do with your height and torso length, so if you are tall, size up. And the Zippered DiveSkins/SurfSkins also necessitates sizing up, less stretch with a 15-17" zipper. Remember that these are one piece designs. You may wear a bathing suit under them, or wear nothing at all. They are not see through, even when wet. They were originally designed to make it easier to get in and out of your wetsuit, but there are many more water sports for which wearing these beautiful creations are ideal by themselves, with their 60+UPF protection as a huge bonus! And the Zippered Minis are such a sexy creation, basically the full SurfSkins but with a high cut leg. Same sizing guidelines, as they too are one piece and zippered. The Zippered Mini has quickly become the best choice for sun protective swim wear, whether lounging around the pool or out on a paddle or surf board, snorkeling or out on a boat.
Please consider this an estimate, as torso length with a one piece is very important. We recommend sizing up in the one piece Zippered Mini and DiveSkin/SurfSkin.
Look as good as you feel!
GymSkins are also designed to fit tightly with the poly/spandex stretchy fabric. This is mainly to hold you in in all the right places and have you look as good as your feel...sexy and ready for a good workout, whether aerobics, spinning, yoga, SUP Yoga, pilates, barre, running-you name it. The one piece design is very flattering, no more muffin top hanging over the top of your leggings and no more wardrobe distractions (i.e. pants coming down and tops flying up!). We have two designs of the GymSkins. Synergy and Symmetry that have beautifully designed backs, but look great layered with a tank top. Larger breasted women may want to size up. Onesies/unitards are making a comeback, and for good reason. They are so comfortable and you will look as good as you feel in our GymSkins!
Leggings are pretty true to size, with a high waist with elastic and length down to your ankles. Depending on your height, you may even pull them over your heels.
Crop tops are stretchy, super comfortable and can be worn with or without a sports bra.
Look as good as you feel!
