Judging by the size chart, I should have gone for an XS, but went with a S because of complaints about the tight neck. I'm glad I went with the S. It's still a super snug fit that will keep me plenty warm. I'm only 5'0" so I was concerned about going up a size but it's tight. There are no loose parts that are going to let cold in to recirculate!

I bought two for my daughter-in-laws and 2 in the male version for my sons. Other than being a little tight in the crotch for my sons, they LOVED them. They said it really kept their bodies warm when kayaking.

After reading several reviews of the product, I decided to call STP and ask what size the company thought I should order. I'm a fairly small person, but I have a bust and needed help with sizing. Because the product runs small I ordered a small instead of an x-small and it fits well. A bit of gyrations to get it on, but could do it by myself.
The neck IS tight, but I figure the better to keep me warmer, and it does loosen some when wet. The suit is a bit long for me, but most people won't have that problem. I did need a little help removing it, but I think I could have finally done it myself.

I planned to use this shorty for paddleboarding (cooler waters but not cold). Either way, I am 5'11" with an athletic build and the body of this ran short. It seemed to fit well in every other way and the quality seemed pretty good for the price.

I have grown up on the lake and love boating and doing water sports, but as I get older I'm not always willing to get cold anymore. I live in Cody Wyoming and we can have some chilling summers and short ones too! This summer I wore my sister in laws and was SPOILED! I was amazed at how much I liked this suit! It kept me warm and I was out on the lake from sun up to sun down! I knew I had to get my own! The suits do run small, so you may want to order up. I'm 155lb and 5'2" and ordered a large. Kinda tight around the neck area at first, but once they get wet they loosen up. It's a nice slimming fit for women. Easy to move in. And I can easily get it on and off myself! I can't wait for next summer!

Used this for an Olympic triathlon in 65 degree water and it performed great! The neck was a little tight initially, but really not a bother once I wore it and got used to it. I would say I am generally a medium, but purchased the large and it fits well. Easy enough to get on and off and it feels durable.
