Swim fast, stay warm
The biggest mistake swimmers make with wetsuits is to buy a wetsuit designed for surfers.
Keep away from the surfing brands and purchase a proper open water swimming wetsuit or triathlon wetsuit.
Surfing wetsuits are designed to be a little looser and for sitting up out of the water, swimming wetsuits are designed to be a bit tighter and move through the water fast.
Wearing just a wetsuit top is a great way to keep your upper body warm but still keep the lower body free. The increased buoyancy also helps make swimming easier.
