1. Would you buy your regular size if you were to use the core warmer over a 3mm suit?
2. I have a long torso; do you have any idea if they run regular or short. I just returned a Neo-Sport because the torso was too short.
Thanks for your help !
LINDA D I can answer one question -- I am long-waisted and this suit fit better than any other I tried (I tried a lot...).
I have not used this with a core warmer, but have with a hood and bib. If you get your suit snug enough, should do fine (I bought my reg. size for this).
I am a normal women's 10/12 and I bought a size 8 for the 7mm and a 10 for the core warmer. If I was putting the core warmer over a 3 mm I would probably use the same size, but if you are putting a core warmer over a 3 mm you might be better served to get a 7 mm fullsuit instead since the multiple layers make things bulky.
I have a long torso as well and both my 7 mm Titanium Hyperstretch Core Warmer and the Wetsuit are long enough in the torso for me. I am 5'7" and weigh 155 pounds.
Hope that this helps! Happy diving.
Lynda L Thanks for the info. I order the size 10 before hearing from you; it should arrive any day. Good to know it will fit a long torso ! I originally wanted a 7mm Titanium, but couldn't find it on sale, so I thought the core warmer sounded like a great alternative for the price. I love Henderson brand. Thanks again & I feel better knowing the sizing. I am returning to Mexico for 3 months & want to take it with me for this diving season & will not have time to get something else if it does not fit. Many thanks again !
SUZANNA L I would buy a size up. I wear a Henderson kids 12 full wetsuit and I bought the womens 4 - it fits great over my 3mm or 5mm full wetsuits. I am 5'4" and 115 lbs. I also have a pretty long torso, and it seems to fit just fine. A little tight on the surface, but that's probably b/c I'm wearing 10mm in the torso. I don't even notice it's on once I'm in the water.
