Top of the line Aquaman triathlon wetsuits Cell Gold and Bionik have a longer torso to accommodate tall people, like a lot of the top athletes. If you’re 6-foot-2 and trying to get into a medium DNA, chances are the torso will be too short and the suit too tight, especially in the back. You will put a lot of tension at the bottom of the zipper and the neoprene may give up after too much stretching. Triathletes this tall will be a lot more comfortable in a Cell Gold or Bionik medium.
Leg length is a less important sizing factor because the legs of the suit can be pulled a little over the calves without causing any tension on the suit or discomfort for the swimmer.
Arm length, however, is important. The sleeves should stop before the wrist and be snug under the armpits. To determine fit across the chest, while wearing the suit, cross the arms in front to check neoprene tightness between the pectoral and the shoulders. Many wrinkles means the neoprene is loose, and the suit is probably too big. Try one size under. If the arms bind and the chest feels compressed, go one size up.
Good triathlon wetsuit fit also relates to arm circumference. The neoprene should be nice and snug around the arms. Sagging means dragging.
For sleeveless models, ladies should chose a suit two sizes under to make sure the neoprene is nice and tight in front. Otherwise, once in the water, the neoprene will expand, increasing drag and diminishing performance.
The triathlon wetsuit sizing charts here are provided for initial guidance. A proper fitting wetsuit will be snug on the chest and arms and be comfortable through the full swimming range of motion. Aquaman wetsuits are renowned and appreciated for being the most comfortable triathlon wetsuit, and proper sizing contributes to the best fit and performance.
