Just tried on my new wetsuit, Think it fits, it's incredibly tight but I can just about breathe so I am guessing this is fine! Just wondered if people in the know had tips on getting it on and looking after it.
I used plastic bags on feet and hands when putting it on and pulled it up nice and high. Also got someone to pull the shoulders together before zipping up. However it was a little long in the arm and leg. 220 mention this about this suit in their review and said about cutting some off. I am loathed to take scissors to it because would I then lose the seal at the wrist and ankle? Also would it introduce a weakness, causing the suit to rip?
Getting it off was a disaster, T1 is going to take hours at this rate! I managed to get one leg out eventually but getting it off the other was a bit of a fail. Any suggestions gratefully recieved!
Also how is it best to store it? I currently have it on a wide hanger but would it be better folded? Should I rinse it after using? Do you need to clean it with anything? What about salt water use?
Penultimately does anyone use Lakeside swimming in Eastleigh? How tolerant will they be to an enthusiastic but terrified amatuer.
Finally and I realise this is daft but i have never used one before. Swim cap- do you wet them or your head before putting them on? Is best to have your goggle straps under the cap or over it?
Thank you for reading my essay and sorry if these questions have been asked before but I really appreciate the advice that I have got from this forum so far! Cotswold 113 is looking hopeful!
