Hi I'm 5'9 around 140-145 lbs, with a 28 in waist and 38 in bust (larger chested but small waist). I am having trouble deciding between a small and medium. Is there enough room in the chest that I should be ok with a small or just go for the medium?
I am 5'6 and 120lbs with a 36" bust and 26 waist I got the small zena and even in my wet suit the adjustments are almost all tighened up.I might order an x-small corset. I would think that you would be very happy with the size small. there is a huge amount of adjustment to them.
I am about the same weight and waist measurement and the small fits perfectly. The three adjustable straps allow to give more room around the chest if needed. The straps loosen quit a bit, adjustable from each side that gives a few inches.
Hi, my husband bought this BC for me recently and I dove with it on our last 2 trips. I am 5'8" and about 170 lbs. I bought the Medium, and I am usually a medium to large in tops. The waist is very adjustable to smaller or thicker waists and you shouldn't have any problem with room in the bust. I am also a 38 and it's cut for women so there's room there as well.
I would say buy whatever size you normally would. You are smaller than I am so I would suggest the small.
Hope that helps you.
It is adjustable. I got the small and also have a 38 inch bust. It is snug, especially when I wear my 3 ml instead of a skin. I usually only wear a thermoskin. I absolutely love it because it is easy to get on and off and adjusts to your body. Hope this is helpful,

I am 5'2 175 lbs and big chested. I bought a large and it's slightly big on me but it will do. The great thing about zeagle zena is that is adjustable in every way. I would go with medium if I were you, nothing worst than gear that is too tight. I hope this helps.
My wife is much shorter than you. She got a medium but we had to purchase small "shoulders" to fit the BC correctly. Based on that, I would say a medium would probably work the best out of the box. If you get the small, the shoulders may not adjust "long" enough and you'd have to spend about $100 for medium shoulder straps.
If you're concerned with the "volume" being too big, you can snug-down the adjustments quite a bit (not just via the waist strap).
The Zena is truly a great BC, my wife has had zero problems or complaints, even after 30+ dives (Cozumel and Bonaire)since purchase.
Hope this helps.
Hello, You may want to think about a medium to large based on the chart on Zeagle's site. You want to go with what will fit your waist first and then bust secondary. With the medium, you don't have to pull the zipper all the way to the top if it's a bit snug. However, the large should still fit you based on your measurements. It's a great BC! You'll love it. Worse case scenario, if you buy it from Leisurepro, you can buy all 3 sizes and return the ones that don't fit. One word of caution with this BC. You will want a little room to tighten up even more when you actually get underwater. Don't get a size that is maxed out on land, meaning the straps have no more room to be tightened. Good luck!
These BCD's run way large! Go with the small. Without a doubt.
Hi! Im 32-24-32 and I'm 5'6 and im 106lbs. I have a small and even with the straps pulled as tight as they are I still have quite a bit of wiggle room that can be a pain in the arse. I think you will be okay. The chest and straps are bowed outward to accomodate the twins. I don't remember the dimensions between the smalls and mediums, but if you're on the larger end of both chest and waist, you might be better off with a medium.
The small will work well for you.
I bought this for my wife. She has a medium frame, is 5'2 around 125 lbs. We first got the medium thinking she could adjust the straps as needed but when it got here and she put it on it was too loose in the shoulders no matter what we did. So we sent it back and got the small. Now perfect fit and she loves it. Just got back from Cozumel and it worked like a charm. You will be able to adjust the waist and chest larger and smaller to fit but your length in the torso will be the factor that really makes the decision for you. Good luck.
