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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good suit for the price. Five star service 25 May 2009
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).

5.0 out of 5 stars A good fit for my slim boy 31 Jan 2011
By Me
Verified Purchase
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.

Colour Name:Black/Lilac|Size Name:Age 12-13
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.

We often travel to Gran Canaria in January/February for some winter sun but the pool is a bit cool for the children to swim in - after half an hour they are cold and have had enough. I thought this product would be ideal because under the product description it states: 'Titanium laminated lining - helps reflect body heat back giving extra warmth' - so in early May when we travelled to Spain we tested these out - I bought one for my 3 year old and one for my 6 year old - again at this time of year the pool was a little on the cool side! It didn't really help retain body heat - I think it depends on how active the child is being and how big they are - smaller bodies loose heat much more easily than bigger ones it can't be avoided!

In other circumstances/for other purposes I think these suits can be very good - but they didn't perform how I had hoped (therefore I am choosing only 3 stars). The UV protection is good - I could test these when we go to Cyprus in the Summer, however they may be a bit too thick in such a hot climate and in these circumstances a lighter weight suit would be better for general use around the pool/beach.

The suits are a very good price (surprisingly so - I have paid more for lighter weight UV swimwear). They seem to appeal to the kids especially the funky colours - think they look very 'cool' - my 9 year old niece got one too and thought it was fun!

Good value, practical - although depends a bit what use you intend them for! I'm thinking of getting an adult size one for myself for watersports - might try parascending from a boat this Summer :-)

Delivered promptly - very good service.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for keeping my son warm 23 Dec 2013
Colour Name:Black/Marine Blue| Size Name:Age 3-4|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality and excellent customer service 10 Dec 2013
Colour Name:Black/Banana Yellow|Size Name:Age 2-3
The suit is of excellent quality, my daughter is warm during her swimming lesson and the customer service and shipping was quick and effective. But it's hard to find the right size! I bought a size 2-3 for my 4 year old daughter (average height and slim) cause that was recommended according to her body length measurements and that worked fine; the suit fits very nicely in terms of length. But the arm and leg openings are VERY tight on her....and she is a slim girl. So I advice asking for the circumference of the arm and leg openings before deciding on the size. Otherwise a perfect suit.
