do I order my size 8 or the size # above on the chart?
I normally wear size 7 1/2, in women's. I ordered a 7 and an 8, and the 8 was very sloppy on my foot because these are men's . I don't think you'd order up a whole size, if my 7 1/2 foot was sloppy in an 8 and too long. I also wear a fleece lined sock under my boot, so I don't get blisters. I have worn them without the socks and they still worked for me. Usually, if you order a men's size, you order down 1/2 size. If you normally wear an 8, you don't want 7, because that's a whole size down, and you can't get a 7 1/2. I think a whole size up to a 9 would be too sloppy on your foot. Have you ever tried on a man's size 9 shoe? You could do that before ordering, and that would probably give you an idea whether 8 would work. If anything you'd order down a 1/2 size and not up, but since there are no half sizes, 7 would be too small. Maybe 8 would be just right. I am VERY pleased with these boots and would ordered them, again. I hope this makes sense to you. My husband thought it was confusing. I hated getting rid of my older than God boots, but they wore through the bottom and had holes on the top. I never think of my old boots, because these are way better than my old boots and wouldn't go back to my old ones! Hope this is helpful.
In speaking of the booties- they are listed as men's sizes - womens'sizes are 2 sizes smaller...
There are too many variables for me to help you answer that question...
Your wetsuit should fit snug and it should not cut circulation off to your extremities or neck. When it gets wet it will loosen up a little
Order the one you think should fit- or order both sizes- double check the return policy and return the one that does not fit properly.
Chart specifies 2 sizes difference between men and women sizes. I purchased the size 5 for my wife who is a size 6 in women's. They fit but were very snug. I recommend going with the one size down from your women's size. If you are a women's 8, go with 7(chart recommends 6)
I'd say 1/2 size will be perfect. If you order your size it will fit but will be tight on the shore though in water it feels fine as it expands.
Order your size. My daughters fit well. Also, you don't want it oversized at all. Better to have it a little snug. My daughter is between an 8 and 9......the 8 fit her perfect!
Order your right size they fit like a glove
I wear a woman's 9.5, these boots are in men's sizes. I order these in a size 8 and they fit perfectly. If you are a woman's size 8, I would go down at least one size, if not a size and a half to a 6.5.
I love these booties. I have ordered them in the 3mm and the 5 mm. Very comfy and easy to put on and take off. I hate zippers, they never stat up for me.
Hope this helps.
These were pretty true to size, maybe a slight bit snugg.
My wife and I both used them in Florida this summer; good booties.
I wear a woman's 7 1/2,in a shoe or sandal. I ordered a 7, in this bootie and it fits me fine, and even with a fleece sock under it, it fits me fine, with a little wiggle room. It is a very sturdy boot, have worn iton many dives and I'm completely happy with it. Hope this helps.

I ordered a replacement of this same boot that I have used for several years and like. The previous size 8 was a little larger than the new size 8 and I sent it back for a 9 which fit fine...the new boot has a better sole but seemed to run a little smaller compared to the previous one. Overall I give it a high rating for the price.
