Zipper Issue

Post by ifitz »

So I got a new wetsuit but I can't get the zipper up. The suit fits and the zipper works when I am not wearing it but when wearing it, the zipper won't go up. What can I do, I've never had this problem before. Or do I just need a bro to zip me up?

I've tried to shimmy and pull my back in (I know what that is because it looks so sexy when guys donut to get their wetsuits on). How would I wax it? What do I use?

I know this is quite an old post and you've probably found your solution, but I used to have a wetsuit like that. I eventually found that I could do up the suit by dropping the zip pull strap over something fixed, like a door handle on a closed door or banister etc. hold the strap in one hand to stop it moving and then gently crouch down being careful not to lean forward too much. This seems to pull the zip out slightly as it pulls up, but if you lean forward too much you risk breaking the zip pull, which I did once.
