How many of you guys own shorties?

Post by wheatley89 » Wed Nov 30, 2011 10:04 pm

I have two: A large black and grey Luna Point and a medium blue and grey C-Skins (As seen in my avatar). Full suits are hot in their own way, but I have a particular fondness for shorties. I suppose I prefer them more because the exposed arms and legs show off more of the hottie underneath. I'm wondering who else around here has one and if they feel the same way.

I have a Ripcurl 2/2 shortie. Had that for a long time, and was the first wetsuit I bought...

I pick up shortie suits when I find them at re-sale shops. They are great for wearing around the house or in summer at the market.
A few of them I've cut out the crotch for extra fun when the time cums.
:D

I have one, of course. My first wetsuit was a shorty, I felt more comfortable wearing that in public for its uses. But when I fool around, its always my fullsuits...I just want to be covered more in that neoprene!

I enjoy a shorty pretty often. It's a lot easier to get into and out of, less sweat, and easier to hide. I'm still living with family so I can't always get geared up for fun and deal with a big cleanup afterwards.

One of my shorties was falling apart so I took some scissors to it and trimmed down the legs and arms so that it basically only covered my crotch and torso, kind of like a women's one-piece. Something about that extra exposure while having the core compressed under the tight suit feels really awesome!

I know the feeling. I still live with my folks and rarely get the chance to truly enjoy my suits. I can't wait until I have a place of my own, then I can really have fun.

I just got an Oneill shorty this year. Much easier to put on and not as hot when you wear it around the house.
