Product Description

New 2012 season design for the CIC shortie from TWF. featuring quality 3mm UV50 Titanium laminated soft and supple neoprene the suit is warm, protective, comfortable and facilitating maximum movement - great for children on the go! When fitting children, age on any size chart is a guide only. Always go by the actual measurements and dont be tempted to allow a little room for growth. Always use a fabric tape measure. For a shortie wetsuit the body length is the key measurement as you are fitting the torso.

Please measure your child accurately and take in to account both the body length and the chest - especially if your child is bigger, smaller, stockier or slimmer than average for their age. The body length is measured from Tshirt neckline/adams apple area, straight down the front of the body, to just between the legs (where seams cross mid crotch on a pair of trousers for instance). If in any doubt, we are more than happy to give advice . Our wetsuits have been chosen because they give a great fit on the majority of children IF the measurements are accurate - there will always be exceptions! If your child is tall and slim - the odds are that to fit the body length the chest may be loose - there is no way around this. Likewise if your child is of a shorter , stockier build - to get the chest to fit they may well have a suit that is slightly longer than they need. Comfort is the key . Whilst a suit should be snug it has to be wearable.

I wanted a wetsuit for my nine years old. This suit was a good price so I phoned to get the sizing guide. Although it took a few attempts to get through I realised why. The staff are really really helpful. They answered all my questions and seemed genuinely pleased to help.

My order e-mail was timed at 1901hrs and at 2141hrs that day I received the invoice to say the wetsuit had been dispatched. WOW 2hrs 40 minutes.

The wetsuit arrived two days later and my son loves it. Fitted really well and the quality, for such a price seems to be excellent.

I have no trouble in recommending the suit itself and Big Orange watersports. A clear five star service and product, (at that price).

I needed a wetsuit to keep my son warm during swimming lessons as he was struggling from being too cold.
I saw previous feedback from another parent who had a 5yr old son with slim build for whom the Age 5-6 suit was too big. They'd re-ordered a Age 3-4 size which fitted perfectly. From this I was able to order the correct size (Age 3-4) as i was also going order the age 5-6 and glad I didn't.
The wetsuit was of excellent quality and fit perfectly.

My 5 year old boy is of average height but very slim. I wanted a wetsuit for swimming lessons as he is getting cold. I first purchased an Osprey suit for 4-6 year olds. Great looking item but too long in the body and massive around the hips and upper thigh. (I'm keeping it though in case he grows into it.)

I ummed and ahhhed over which suit to go for next and in the end decided on this one. I measured my son up and was a bit puzzled when the measurements seemed to suggest he'd need the 2-3yr old suit. Having read some other reviews over the helpfulness of the supplier I rang them up and discovered that body length should be measured down the front not the back as I had. (Start at the adam's apple and follow the body contours down to where the crotch seam on trousers would be.) The woman also advised me that this is by far the most important measurement - don't worry about the chest size etc just get this one right.

Armed with new measurements I ordered the 3-4yr old suit, it came the next day and is a perfect fit - quite snug all round so it should trap water well for warmth. My son instantly put it on and wore it for the rest of the afternoon. He looked so sweet - sorry, cool!

I'm delighted with the fit (I had resigned myself to a slightly bagger suit as he is so slim - with a larger child the neoprene would stretch). And the service was fautless.

This wetsuit does the job it's supposed to pretty well. My 3 yr old loves it, although there is a bit of rubbing at the back of the knee area due to I suppose where she sits in the sand and then charges about on the beach in and out of the water so I suspect this would be the case with a top of the line wetsuit as well.
I do consider myself a bit of a connoisseur of wetsuits having been wearing various types since 1984, and I'd say the difference between this wetsuit and a top of the line expensive wetsuit would be that the expensive one would be more flexible and therefore be a better fit, also the seams would probably be better (more water proof) than these flatlocked ones which instantly let the water in, and maybe a more expensive suit would have smoothskin around the neck, arm and leg ends instead of the folded over double lined neoprene of this one.

I've just had a look about on the net and in fact the most you can pay for a similar size kids shorty is £34 and most of them are reduced to about £25-30, flatlocked seams are the only ones I've found, and so the only advantage of a more expensive suit is likely to be that it's more flexible as it might be made of different neoprene or at least have super stretch panels in areas like shoulders or under arms etc.
Almost double the price for a slightly better suit that will only probably fit for one season? Worth it? Not for me, get this one.

All said and done this suit is excellent value and is perfectly fine for summer days in England, but you need to get the sizing right for the best experience - my daughter is an average size 3 and half yr old, and the fit is a bit long in the body with the width aspect being spot on. It won't fit next summer though but at £15 a pop no worries on getting another next year!

My daughter ordered this with an amazon voucher she had as a birthday present. It arrived in less than 48hrs and is standing up to at least a weekly outing to the uk seaside for junior nippers very well.

my son uses this a lot although he found the size a little large for him, however I have persevered with it as I decided he could grow into it!

I purchased this wetsuit for my 2 1/2 year old for his swimming lessons as it has proved impossible to keep him warm enough in the pool and although he is a real water baby, he just couldn't enjoy his whole lesson due to being too cold, even in a differebt sleeveless wetsuit with a long sleeve suit underneath!!!
I did have to get him the 3-4 year old suit as he is fairly long in the body but the fit is fantastic.
He wore it in the pool for the first time yesterday and i was amazed! He enjoyed his entire lesson, whilst i shivered! He wasn't even rushing to the showers to get warm and when i did take it off him, his body was toasty warm! Best thing i have bought in a long time.
The suit looks quite stylish too. I have the blue and black one and it's very smart.
The service from this company is also second to none!
Would strongly recommend!!
