Please use our size charts as a general guide to help you select your size for our swimwear, activewear and neoprene suits. If you have a specific sizing question or would like more information, please e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. We are always happy to advise!
Our suits run pretty true to size as per our size charts. Our suits are designed for comfort and being active, both in and out of the water. They are made with 100% recycled materials and double-lined for durability, so our fabric won’t stretch out as much as other swimwear you might be used to. This means that if you are on the cusp between two sizes, we would recommend sizing up, as our fit may feel more snug. We recommend measuring yourself following the guidelines provided on our size chart page. Please note, some of our styles do differ and have a unique fit. So in addition to using our size charts, we recommend also referring to any specific recommendations provided on each product page.
We would typically recommend going with the larger of the two sizes to ensure a comfortable fit all around.
We recommend going with a larger size to accommodate for height, typically the smaller size will be too short. Some of our suits have a more slim, high-waist than others, so these should still fit well around the waist.
The following suits are fitted with an integrated shelf-bra for extra support: Zale, Kelea, Kai, Mary Lou. In addition to our size chart, please refer to the extra information provided on each product page for more specific size and fit recommendations.
Your wetsuit should be a snug fit when new and will loosen off slightly once wet. A good fit is essential for keeping warm!
All Abysse swimwear and activewear pieces are made with ECONYL® regenerated nylon, in California, given new life through repurposing ghost-fishing nets that pollute and kill their oceanic environment and other nylon waste.
Abysse wetsuits are exclusively made from ECOPRENE: Japanese Limestone based neoprene. This is an eco-friendly alternative to traditional, petroleum-based neoprene. Our mineral based ecoprene has ultra low resistance, enhanced comfort, superior moldability, high heat retention, is lightweight and durable.
Swimwear and Activewear: Our swimwear and activewear lines are both made out of 100% recycled ocean waste. More precisely, repurposed discarded ghost fishing-nets. They also need a little care in order to last longer.
Swimwear care: Hand wash and rinse in cold water, then hang in the shade.
Activewear care: You can use your washing machine but we recommend a gentle wash and natural drying in the shade.
Japanese Limestone Neoprene: Neoprene is a durable material made for ocean sports and activities to keep you warm. The downfall of neoprene is that it creates creases while folded, this is totally normal as neoprene is technically ‘foam’. Do not freak out if your wetsuit has creases! Wearing it in the ocean is the best cure. It will mold to your body and the foam will relax.
Neoprene care: Make sure to wash your neoprene suits in cold water after every use and to store them flat, in a dry environment, away from the sun or moonlight.
