    I was just reading this thread and the question occured to me - I'm a newbie so chalk it up to 'dumb newbie question' - what do you wear under your wetsuit? What are you supposed to wear?

    On the Dive
    Usually just a Cossie thats a "bathing suit"

    Or if it a little longer or a little colder a Lycra. Also nice cause it is soo easy to get in and out of the Wettie with a Lycra on.

    I wear a diveskin under. It makes putting on and removing my wetsuit alot easier.

    Ditto the diveskin. I find it makes it much easier to get in and out of the wetsuit.

    No, not the geriatric diapers. It depends on which wetsuit I'm using. Could be a skin, could be my underwear or could be a swimsuit. No way I'd go bare given all the holes in my 7mm!

    I've been going commando, but I think I'll try the skin.

    I've got a one piece swim suit w/ long legs. The top looks like a regular suit. I think it was made for competitive swimmers. It makes getting in & out of the wetsuit a breeze. I usually wear my regular swim suit under the one piece so I can remove the one piece suit when I'm done diving.
