009 DiveSkins/SurfSkins - Whale Shark - Zippered

$ 150.00 USD
SZDS 0106

A tight fitting full body lycra suit designed to allow you to easily slip in and out of  your wetsuit- wet or dry.  There are foot stirrups, 17"- 20" front zipper and thumb holes to make slipping in and out of your wetsuit a breeze. But another fun option is to wear this OVER your wetsuit just to show off the beauty of the suit.  The garment has 60+UPF sun protection and dries quickly, so it's also ideal for snorkeling, diving without a wetsuit, surfing, paddling, freediving, swimming or lounging on the deck of the dive boat or pool. You'll never have to worry about sun over exposure.  In warm water conditions, the DiveSkin is ideal to wear by itself  or with just the BCD, tanks and other gear.  You'll never have an issue being spotted by your dive partner either.  Be beautiful and give the fish a taste of eye candy. The 17" zippered product is designed to cover the delicate decolletage with a zipper to the neck, as well as make it easy to get in and out of.  They run pretty true to size, but if in doubt, size up!  It is a one piece and height it a big factor in the fit, but they are quite stretchy.  Great for all kinds of water activities with or without a wetsuit.  Full body sun, abrasion and stinging critter protection.  So an ideal stinger suit!  Consider pairing it with a Dive Buff for even greater skin protection and to keep your hair out of the mask strap.  There are great YouTube videos on all the ways to wear a Buff.  Dive Socks coming soon!

82% polyester/18% lycra so excellent stretch, great range of motion, breathable, wicks moisture and dries quickly.  Machine wash and tumble dry.

Amazing Customer Service

You have been an absolute pleasure to deal with! Amazing Customer Service! I have told my whole diving community about you! I cannot wait for my skin to arrive!

I recommend this product

Beautiful, great quality and amazing costumer service.

If I could give it more stars I would! Everything was easy and fast. Plus friendly, real people reachable through email. What you see is what you get, delivery took as much as it said it would. For size, according to the size chart I was M but as advised on the site I went one size up and it fits perfect!!! I love the quality of the fabric and will for sure use this any diving chance I get!

Won't travel without it

I love this slipin diveskin for several reasons. As a scuba diver, it takes the work out of putting on a wetsuit. My wetsuit slides on effortlessly, which is a huge deal when doing multiple dives a day. I have fair skin, so I love the sun protection it provides when walking along the beach between dives. I don't have to lather up with sunscreen - just my Slipins and a hat and I'm good to go! I'm also protected if I decide to go for a swim or snorkel. I own several of the divesuits in different patterns, so I'm always styling! Thank you Slipins!

High quality finish, comfortable, can't wait to dive with it!

Received my whale shark dive skin today. It's super soft, smooth, comfortable and finished to a high quality. The print is realistic. I can't wait to wear it diving!!! I'm 5'4'' and about 118 lbs and got a S and it fits well.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this!!!!

This is a GREAT company and a GREAT product. First of all, Robin was so great at helping me pick out this perfect full body rash guard for an upcoming snorkeling trip to Indonesia. She even helped me get the right size. And I really love this pattern. It looks so cool on and makes me feel like a mermaid or tropical fish. My husband thought it was great looking on me! I wanted to wear it to work because it was so comfortable, but decided that wasn't really practical in the winter! I will come back with another review after my trip, but I am so very impressed with this product! I am especially pleased that it will make it possible for me to not wear suntan lotion that could negatively impact the beautiful coral reefs I will be visiting. And it will protect my skin. And who wants to be boring by wearing black!!!! Brilliant concept!


Whale shark transformation complete!

I LOOOOOOVE my whale shark dive skin!!! It fits like a glove and the print is beautiful. The material is thinner than I expected, but I’m planning on wearing it over a wetsuit anyways so that’s not a problem for me. For reference, I’m 5’ 3”, 115lbs, and ordered a size S. Also, a big thank you to Robin and Rick for the personal emails and restocking so quickly. I can’t wait to get in the water with this beauty!


Love it! Can't live without it and beautiful too!

Thank you, Robin and Rick for all of your care in designing and creating such useful and beautiful clothing. I'm also thrilled they are made in the US (in CA). I absolutely love my Whale Shark DiveSkin!! I can't believe I have been diving all these years without it! No more overheating on the boat, and ripping the skin on my fingers trying to get my wetsuit on. It also protected me from getting burned while on the dive boat. The DiveSkin feels so silky that you feel sexy and sleek on your dive. I got so many compliments on the Whale Shark pattern during our dive trip to Cozumel. My brother and I had a truly life altering experience diving with Whale Sharks on a trip to Borneo. So once I found my Whale Shark DiveSkin, I knew I had to get one for my him too. I'm looking forward to trying my DiveSkin under my surf wet suit which is even harder to get into than my dive wet suit. I also plan to use it for snorkeling, lake swimming,


I love it!

I'm 5'1", size 12-14 pants, 175lbs. The women's XL is pretty close to perfect. 

If forced to pick out issues, the only (very nitpicking) minor things (none affect the use or my love of this skin) are: 1. the sleeves are about 2" too long for my arms (I'm 17" underarm to wrist), but there is only minimal bunching. 2. the booty and thigh areas are stretched more than the other areas so its ever so slightly lighter blue (& minorly see through) than completely unstretched areas in my arms - but I wear a swimsuit under to it's no matter to me. 3. Without a swimsuit, I can feel the ends of the zipper inside the slipin. For me, the zipper stops at the belly button. Note it does zip all the way up to the neck so you don't have to reveal as much cleavage as in the website pictures - but of course, there is nothing wrong with that, ha!

Great Fit and Unique Style

I had been waiting for this diveskin to be restocked in my size before a scuba diving trip to Indonesia. It showed up online 2 days before I was to go, SlipIns went above and beyond to expedite shipping and even called to ensure it arrived in time for my trip.. Amazing customer service! The small fit perfect (5'3 athletic build) and was easy to wear under my wet suit and on its own without a wet suit. I can't wait for my next purchase!


Fun, sassy, perfect diveskin

Love this diveskin! The pattern is awesome and so realistic, better than other whaleshark patterns I have seen. The XS small fits me perfectly (I’m about 5’3’’, athletic frame). I wear it just as a skin for tropical diving, or under a wetsuit for extra warmth and ease of slipping in and out of the suit. I also wore this swimming with whale sharks and the photos ended up so amazing :) I have the Fuschia Nudibranch one as well and it’s amazing. Love these!!
