          I read the reviews so order a size larger than what I typically wear in clothing, it was too small. I returned the item & got another brand wetsuit which worked fine.

          Too small

                Comments about Lavacore by Oceanic Women's Full Suit:

                My husband is thrilled with his LavaCore and that is why I wanted one. My intention was to put it under a 3 mil for diving in Bali. It was so small that I could barely get it on. The sleeves and legs were so long that there was no sense in ordering it in a larger size. I would order this in the back zip style rather than the front zip style as it is much easier to get on and off. I had to send mine back.

                  Comments about Lavacore by Oceanic Women's Full Suit:

                  This suit is great for warm waters, it feels like a pyjama and folds like one too. Dries Quickly and feels great on your skin. Not as warm as a 3mm. It's amazing how Velcro destroys the fabric. Some velcro that holds the inflator on the BCD destroyed a part of the suit on my first dive.

                      Comments about Lavacore by Oceanic Women's Full Suit:

                      I hate wetsuits. And I hate being cold. Quite the connundrum. I hate putting then on, I hate pulling them off, I hate that feeling when you get a gush of cold water in your suit, I hate the smell of neoprene, I hate the velcro catching my hair, I hate back zips... My least favorite part about suiting up for a dive -- the wetsuit.

                      The lavacore takes away ALL of these unpleasantries. You feel like you are putting on your favorite fleece. It's light weight and easy to put on (no matter the conditions, wet, dry, sunscreen, etc). The front zip is awesome. And the stirrups and thumb holes make it so you are snuggly in place. It's lined with a fleece and dries off quickly. It's equivilent to a 3mm. Since it is less boyant than neoprene you can use a bit less weight too.

                      Downsides: it will turn your skin green the first few times you use it (soak it in the bath tub before you use it). But this comes off with a bit of soap and water.

                      Best. Wetsuit. Ever.

                        Comments about Lavacore by Oceanic Women's Full Suit:

                        I had purchased a Henderson thermoprene shorty for my wife for our first Caribbean dive vacation. Because of her claustrophobia, the neck seal for her wasnt a real smart choice. The Dive Operation we were using allowed her to use the Oceanic Lavacore, and she was immediately in love with it. Her diving improved, the second she used the Lavacore, as she was no longer focused on the constricting nature of the neck seal of the Henderson. She also raved about its comfort, and ease of wear. We intend on buying one for her future Caribbean dives.
