Bev Suits fitting styles Can't Post

I'm ordering a competition suit and am at a loss as to which fit to get. Tight or regular? What are your experiences with either of these?

I want a fast fall suit good for 4/8 way as well as appropriate for big ways. Probably should get a tight fitting suit? Just don't want it to end up skin tight with no room for anyting but a tshirt and shorts but don't want it too loose. I already have a suit that's supplex front and is not tight but fits.

And yes I have a call into Bev, just waiting to hear backWink

Do you wear weights to do 4/8 way? If so (and maybe anyway), you should get a tight fit. If you want to wear it in cold weather, just measure over the whatever you would be wearing (I gave them measurements with and without weights), but it will not be so tight when wearing less. For a big way, you can always wear a t-shirt over it, if you need to fall a bit slower.

Multiple suits for different types of dives is the best answer.

Fabric type can have a big difference. Cotton vs Taffeta vs others.
