Spring suits are perfect for those in-between temperatures when it’s a bit chilly for just a swimsuit but too warm for your 3/2 full suit. Women’s surf wear has come a long way over the past 15 years – from spring suits to surf suits to sexy sporty swimsuits, we have more options than ever to be comfortable in the water and look good doing it.
Surf spring suits for women come in many forms—from racerback tops with full-length legs, to long-sleeves and shorts, to surf suits with some neoprene for warmth. Spring suits are generally considered to be wetsuits made with 1 – 2mm neoprene (or neoprene alternative), and they’re worn in temperatures ranging from around 65 – 73 °F (18 – 23 °C).
When buying a full wetsuit, there’s a bit more to consider because you’re combating the cold, but since spring suits are for warmer temperatures, wetsuit technology isn’t as important here. Whereas we definitely recommend to research and buy a full wetsuit based on quality and functionality, spring suits are where you have room to play with fun styles.
There’s a lot of really fun spring suits for women, so we’ve rounded up a few of our favs!
