Fantastic idea for spring or summer cold water swimming
Deliberated a while over this swimsuit as wasn't sure what type of swimming I would use it for and was a bit unsure of sizing. However, I am so glad I decided to keep it. With regard to sizing, I had ordered my normal Finisterre size which is 8 and also the 10. The 8 felt too short in the body and once I tried the 10, that was definitely the right size. Used it a couple of times now, once up on the Yorkshire coast and then for a river swim. It's the perfect swimming costume for this time of year when a shorty feels too smothering and my usual swimming costume doesn't provide enough insulation. I can imagine adding some swim leggings and rash vest if it gets cooler. It's much easier to get in and out of compared to a traditional shorty or wetsuit thanks to the front zip, the material is lovely and it looks great. Definitely recommend it!
