The advantages of neoprene swimsuits are obvious: When swimming in the water for a longer period of time, the body cools down. A neoprene swimsuit insulates and thus offers better protection against the cold when swimming in cold water but also during longer stays at normal water temperature when swimming, surfing or snorkeling. Compared to a Neopren Shorty (i.e. a neoprene swimsuit with a short leg) a neoprene swimsuit is simply more fashionable and attractive. Neoprene is durable and stretchy, so swimsuits made of neoprene offer good freedom of movement for all sporting activities. Neoprene swimsuits are available in different thicknesses up to 1mm. The thicker the material, the better insulation.
