    Hi everyone!

    I'm 5"8 and 110lbs, usually a size 0. I was looking at the sizing charts of a few different wetsuit brands(mares, Waterproof, Scubapro, etc) and it seems that smaller sizes usually come in shorter length too.
    Some brands do offer Tall option but the sizes usually starts from US4(or equivalent).
    I'm wondering if anyone knows if there's any brand that makes taller wetsuit in general?

    Thanks in advance!

    If you don't find a off the rack suit that fits, I'd recommend having a custom suit made. I'm writing this as a very satisfied owner of a custom suit.

    If you live in the Southern California area, I have some suggestions.

    Try them on... lot’s I’ve tried seem to be for long skinny girls, like fashion models, because that’s what designers think women are like. I’ve had to trim my 7 mil. I’m pretty slender, but short. Longer dive socks and cuffed gloves can also make up the diff as long as torso is long enough for you. Freediving wetsuits also tend to be for skinny people and the two pieces thing gives you some torso adjustment.
