How to choose your neoprene wetsuit size?

The love of the ocean is universal, but finding the right neoprene wetsuit size for you can be a challenge in itself. Whether you’re a fan of aquawalking, surf lifesaving, swimming or surfing, the Mellow Sea brand will accompany you in your quest.

The Mellow Sea philosophy

Mellow Sea’s mission is clear: to equip all ocean lovers, whatever their profile, age, morphology or aquatic activity. And it was with this vision that the Anfibi range was born, offering an unrivalled variety of sizes to ensure a perfect fit.

Neoprene wetsuits in intermediate sizes

This Anfibi range features a complete size chart (11 to 12 sizes), including several intermediate sizes such as S/L and M/XXL. 

Why so many sizes in the Anfibi range?

The diversity of human bodies is a reality we cannot ignore. Not all are modelled on “mannequin” sizes, and that’s a good thing. Variety is the beauty of our humanity. But then, why do so many brands of neoprene wetsuits tend to offer such standardized size charts?

The industry has long opted for standardization in sizing, seeking a balance between mass production and market demand. However, this approach can sometimes fail to take into account the richness of morphologies. At Mellow Sea, we’ve chosen to see things differently. For us, each individual deserves a wetsuit that suits them, not the other way around.

How can we understand these intermediate sizes?

Intermediate sizes, such as S/L or M/XXL, are our answer to this challenge. These sizes are the result of an in-depth analysis of real user needs. The S/L could, for example, correspond to someone who has the stature of a Small but needs a little more room in the legs or stomach, typical of a Large size. Likewise, an M/XXL might suit someone with a Medium stature but needing more fullness in the chest or shoulders.

By offering these intermediate sizes, the Anfibi range not only seeks to dress the body, but to fit its shape, guaranteeing optimal comfort without sacrificing functionality.

Without wishing to denigrate other brands, we simply wish to highlight the fact that offering standardized sizes is not always suitable for everyone. With the Anfibi range, Mellow Sea is committed to offering a solution for every ocean lover, whatever their morphology.

The importance of the right wetsuit size

A well-fitting suit is essential for several reasons:

  • Comfort: A suit that’s too tight or too loose can be uncomfortable and restrict your movements.
  • Thermoregulation: To retain heat, it’s crucial that the suit fits snugly around your body.
  • Ease of donning: Our Anfibi suits are made from 100% ultra-stretch fabric for easy donning.

Anfibi sizing guide: How to decipher it?

The Anfibi sizing chart takes into account three essential parameters: stature, pant size and, for women, bust size. Follow these steps to determine your ideal size:

  • Stature: Measure your height from head to toe.
  • Pants size: Use your usual pants size as a reference.
  • Chest size (for women): Using a tape measure, measure your chest circumference at the widest point.

In conclusion
