Women's wetsuits

Buy Ladies Wetsuit

Are you looking for a ladies wetsuit? Then finding the right ladies wetsuit can sometimes be a bit tricky. Below you can read what points you can pay attention to during the orientationprocess, so hopefully we can give you a push in the right direction.

What can I use a ladies wetsuit for?

You can buy a wetsuit for various reasons. Most people buy a wetsuit to protect them from the cold. During the cold winter days your body can easily get hypothermia because of the cold windchill and/or the cold water. With a women's wetsuit you will not get cold so easily on the water. In addition, many people also buy a surfing suit to protect against the UV rays. Since you burn twice as fast on the water because of the reflection of the sunbeams, it is important to put on the right protection.

What types of women's wetsuits are there?

Now that you know what the wetsuit is for, we can look at what type suits you best. Nowadays you have a lot of choice within the women's wetsuit assortment. Below we have listed all types of ladies wetsuits with a short explanation.

Semidry ladies surf suit

Semidry wetsuits are the most used surfing suits for ladies. As the name already tells you, your body doesn't stay completely dry. This kind of wetsuits creates a thin layer of water between your body and the surfing suit, which insulates and keeps your body nice and warm.

Steamer wetsuit ladies

Within all types of ladies wetsuits the steamers are the most popular. This is because these surfing suits are made of neoprene between 4 and 6 millimetres thick. Besides that, the seams of steamers are often taped or glued, so no water or wind can penetrate. In general, the 5mm ladies wetsuits are the most used.

Fullsuit for ladies

Fullsuits cover your body completely, but are often made of a thinner layer of neoprene. Because of this they are comparatively less warm than the steamers, but still suitable for the average temperatures of 14 to 18 degrees.

Ladies overknee wetsuit

With ladies overknee wetsuits the arms are completely covered and the legs halfway. Overknee surf suits are therefore popular among our fanatic kite- and wakeboard ladies, because this type of wetsuits is easier to wear with boots.

Shorty wetsuit ladies

The name says it all in this case. Shorty wetsuits for women don't cover the lower arms and legs. This makes a shorty perfectly suitable to wear during warmer temperatures of above 18 degrees.

Ladies drysuits

If you are planning to go on the water in the most extreme winter weather conditions, a drysuit is the most suitable. A drysuit has a tight seal around the neck, arms and legs so that no water can enter. This way you can wear dry clothes to keep yourself warm.

What to look for when buying a ladies wetsuit?

While orientating on the different wetsuits you will probably notice that there are many different kinds. It is important to consider the following when choosing the right ladies wetsuit:

Types of neoprene

There are two types of neoprene, double-lined and single-lined. Most wetsuits are made from doublelined neoprene. This means that there is a fabric lining on the inside as well as the outside. The advantage of a doublelined surfsuit is that it is more flexible and less vulnerable. A disadvantage is that this type of suit offers less warmth. The singlelined women's surf suits are often heavy and stiff. Only the outside is covered with a layer of fabric, which makes these suits vulnerable but very warm, perfect for colder days!


The thickness of a ladies wetsuit determines how warm you will feel on the water. Often the thicker the neoprene, the warmer the wetsuit. Our ladies wetsuits are available in different thicknesses, from 1 to 6 millimeter. The most allround thickness is a ladies wetsuit which has 5/4 or 5/3 mm thick neoprene. The back and chest are covered with 5mm thick neoprene and around the arms and legs 4mm thick. This is an ideal combination between freedom of movement and warmth.
Below you will find a table showing the approximate thickness of the women's surf suit that you will need.


Wetsuit thickness:

Tropisch (>22℃)

2/1, 2/2

Warm (<18℃)


Mild (>14℃)


Koud (>8℃)

5/4, 5/3

IJzig koud (<2℃)

6/4, 5,4

Stitching methods

The seams on a ladies wetsuit can be stitched or glued. Stitched seams are easy to stitch and therefore cheaper, but there is also a disadvantage. The disadvantage is that the seams are not wind and water tight. Shorty's and cheaper wetsuits usually have stitched seams.
Wetsuits with glued seams are glued on the inside, which prevents wind and water from penetrating through the seams. This ensures that your body stays nice and warm which is especially useful in the winter.


Our ladies surfing suits are available with a front zip (frontzip), a back zip (backzip) or no zip at all (zipless). Ladies surfing suits with a front zip are more difficult to put on, but the big advantage is that less water will enter the suit and you will experience more freedom of movement while wind- or kitesurfing. The wetsuits with back zip are more sensitive for water penetration but are easy to put on. A wetsuit without a zip offers a lot of freedom of movement, but is also a bit harder to put on.

Size and comfort

Buying the right size ladies surfing suit is perhaps one of the most important factors you should take into account. Your wetsuit should fit well, so that not too much water can run inside. Besides that a wetsuit should fit well, comfort is also an important aspect, because during wind- or kite-surfing your wetsuit should be comfortable.
