    Brands change and quality may or may not be going downhill now, but I own some older Oceanic stuff that is absolutely awesome and refuses to die.

    yes, gotta make sure the pee is kept neatly against the skin in an evenly distributed layer.

    03A95854-26CB-4BB9-A278-F4A2A9B29A67.jpeg Well I got suit, tried it on and it fit perfectly.
    It will still fit if I lose 10 lbs because it is stretched a bit. And it feels brand new, no old and dried out as I feared. Wow.

    Neoprene does not shrink as some argue but it does lose some of it's elasticity over time. I am going to go out on a limb and suspect that better grades of neoprene suffer this more slowly than others.
