Designed by YOU - the Women's Wetsuit Tester Programme

Our Women's Wetsuit Tester Programme ran over the winter of 2017, with 100 women across Europe wearing our suits. The programme culminated earlier this year with the WTTP Camp, a weekend of feedback (and of course surf) with Mat D'Ascoli. The finished suit is based on this invaluable feedback. Tested and designed by you.

Best wetsuit I've ever worn but watch out for sizing

Buying this wetsuit was a hard decision between this one and a similar Billabong one that was made from recycled tyres. I went for the Finisterre one as I ethically agreed with their values and there seemed to be a lot more research behind it. I used it for the first time surfing at Perranporth in October, and was not even cold! Didn't feel the need for the hood or boots or gloves, and I didn't get any flushing. October is still probably quite a warm month of the year in terms of sea temperature, but the wetsuit did also feel lovely. I normally wear a size 12 clothing, but I bought a size 10 wetsuit after reading the size chart, and the size 10 fits perfectly. Very snug and well fitted and dries quickly. Would definitely recommend. The only downside I'd say is that it's a bit difficult to get out of (a two man job or a 10 min job on my own), but that could be because it's still new and I haven't worn it that much.

Great fit, thoughtful touches, I love it!

I absolutely love this suit. It fits really well. I guess everyone's body shape is different but this fits me perfectly. I particularly like the tension wrist bands - they are fab! And the calf loops - godsend in a car park! It sounds weird but I love the inside too. It's got lovely colours that just make you feel good. It is really warm and easy to surf in.

Amazing material and design, not fit for women with hips

I think it is a great wetsuit but the neck entrance is way too small for hips. a size bigger would have been too big.

on the other hand the material is amazing and the customer service excelent. highly recomended for small hips

Tight fit, really warm

The wetsuit has a good fit and is really warm. It has a tight fit indeed: I need some help to get my arms in and out, but I hope this will get easier with time. When wearing it without the hood, the water comes in at the front side when diving through a wave, but after two seconds it has warmed up so not really problematic. Overall, I am very happy with it!
