Rated 5 out of 5 by wildpursuit sleeveless wetsuit
So soft and stretchy, yet clings for warmth against the water chill. Easy to swim and surf without sleeve restriction. It fits well. Surprised that so much warmth in such lightweight, hi-tech fabric.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BetZS Runs large and long and hard to swim in
Offers good flotation and keeps your stomach from getting cold BUT it's weird to swim in - slows you down, and when you swim on your back water leaks in and you feel like you're in a water balloon. And your arms still get really cold.
Also, the measurements must be off - a L was too big for me and too long (5'4")

Rated 5 out of 5 by FLWindsurfGirl Great lightweight shorty
Like the previous reviewer, I am 5 ft, 5 in and weigh 132 lbs. I was looking for a new wetsuit since my favorite tank top suit is falling apart. I like to have my arms free for windsurfing and paddling and do not like wetsuits with sleeves--I find tight wetsuits very fatiguing. I also order almost exclusively mediums from LLBean and was concerned about the sizing and reviews, so I ordered the small and the medium size. I found both pretty easy to get on despite not having a zipper--they are really stretchy. Since it is summer here, I have only worn around the house. I preferred the medium size and sent back the small. The material is stretchy enough that it fit well without gaps. I plan to wear a windproof shell over it for cooler Florida weather. Can't wait for cold weather to try it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RochSwimmer Cut of suit is very comfortable
This wetsuit is great in terms of comfort. It is cut so that it does not rub anywhere. There is only one problem with it.... the sizing. I have been an LL Bean shopper for decades and 90% of what I buy from LL Bean is size medium. I used the sizing chart and bought the small and it is too big. Unfortunately LL Bean does not make a smaller size. I am 5ft 5 inches and weight 130 lbs so you can use that as a guide as to whether or not you could wear this suit or not. If you can fit into the sizing they offer, it is a great suit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Holemanj Keeps me warm in freezing Massachusetts lakes
I purchased this to swim with my five year old in cold lakes this summer. I have never been comfortable in cool water and this suit has totally solved the problem for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tigerlilytulip It's Everything They Said It Would Be!
I used something like this when I went whitewater rafting. I was looking for something to keep me a little warm when going in the outdoor pool in the mornings. I LOVE IT! The price is reasonable for something like this. It's so thin and light, I barely notice I have it on. It keeps my core warm. It's my favorite purchase for summer so far. I think the fit is a bit generously sized. I highly advise buying it, if you're considering it!
