I am 5'2" 125 lbs and usually wear a size 4. My scuba wardrobe is full of wetsuits all too small and difficult to take off during the 1hr out of water interval between dives. Even the Henderson 10 was too tight. I love this Cressi shorty L4. It is probably a little large but is easy to get on and off. The shorty packs great in my carry on. I'm sure that you wouldn't need the L/4, so maybe 2 sizes smaller. Now I'm looking for a full front zip skin to add to my carrying on. Hope this helps.
You're absolutely right about the front zip.
the convwntional WS are a little hard to suit up and off, so i'm really looking forward to try this one, although, the pink details are a plus for me to choose it.
and i envy you, for all those wetsuit you have :)
