    5'7".. 5'3".. gah.. my wife has no hope if you guys/gals can't get a wetsuit to fit. She's 4'11" and her current suit from Camaro fits okay but bunches up at her ankles a lot. She usually ends up leaving the velcro undone down there and just pushing the extra really far down her booties. I cut about an inch off of the arms since they didn't have velcro/zippers and that helped a bit.

    I'm dreading trying to find something for our trip to Catalina Is. in April since the water temps will be 10-15 degrees cooler than what we're used to.

    We have been selling the Bare wet suits for years and have found that both the short patterns and the junior sizes can fix most of the height problems. Check out their size chart. Hope this helps!

    I'm 5'2" and I have a Deep See child's large wetsuit that fits great! The women's sizes are too big and I didn't really realize how much so until I got one that fit right. I was actually warm! It was also quite a bit cheaper than the adult sizes and it's a 6/5/4 instead of just a 5 mil, so a little warmer, too. I love mine.
    Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It is about learning to dance in the rain.
