That would be brilliant - you'd look amazing in it.

Have you any ideas what sort you're going for yet?

Looking forward to this! Should be lots of fun!

Get a full suit with no seam down the middle, just like wetsuits. Tight and smooth with no seams on the chest is the way to go. You can even get stretchy ones with no zip! The only way in is the neck. There's also hoods, gloves, socks and sheaths, if you want to add those. :mrgreen:

Lube up! Rubber is sticky, so you will definitely need plenty to get it on, unless you get your suit chlorinated. The slippery stuff from Pjur (water or silicone base) does the trick. Or maybe the stuff from a dive shop. It also makes the outside really shiny.

Glad to hear you are finally getting some rubber - much overdue. Almost all of the recent models seem to have rubber, has getting to see it up close what finally persuaded you?

I second the comments about not having a zip down the chest - it really reduces the flexibility and doesn't look as good. Neck entry is the most flexible, but they tend to be thinner suits and more prone to damage with having to stretch so much. Shoulder zips are a good compromise with various zip and/or cod piece options for fun activities :D failing that rear zip, although a rear all-round zip does reduce flexibility.

Personally I don't go for attached socks/gloves/hoods/etc. so you can mix and match with other gear. Fullsuits are awesome, rubber shorts and a t-shirt, or a surfsuit, are great to wear under other gear - either under lycra gear whilst cycling (you will sweat loads), or with a cockring and plenty of lube under leather are particularly fun.

Avoid cheap latex, it isn't as nice or robust. Whilst skintightrubber and blackstyle are great they are not cheap, i've got some great gear from latex101, expectations, regulation, honour amongst others.

You can't go wrong with plain black either. Always happy to chat if you would like more thoughts.

Totally agree with Rublatex, just waiting delivery of a skintightrubber shoulder entry cat suit in .55 mm black rubber. Have opted for the 4 way zip. Also going to be looking after a Fetters rubber strait jacket and a rubber sleepsack for a mate!

Can recommend libidex. Zips are difficult. My catsuit has a backzip and it is impossible for me to put on by myself. Unknown if this is the same for all of them, but it did lead me to buying one with front zip as a result

Might also be worth looking at latexcrazy. I've a few suits from them, they chlorinate their suits so they are smoother and you have a lot of size, color, thickness, attachment, and zip options. They also often have sales, and aren't terribly expensive (for the market) to begin with.

The easiest way to do up a rear zip if you don't have someone on hand to help is to pass some thin wire or string through the pull on the zip runner - same principle as a lanyard on a wetsuit. Just don't heave on it as the zips are not as chunky as wetsuits

So far.... I am make up my mind, I am going to get the suit from Regulation London, with following...
  • Black
  • Shoulder zips
  • 0.6mm - going to pay the extra
  • Crotch/Ass zip
  • No socks
  • No gloves
  • Locking Entry Zips - costs more, but stuff that locks is way better!
Now just need to work out, which size I need!

Just need help with the collar, which would you choose? Crew neck, 25mm, 40mm or 65mm?

I'd go with a 40mm collar. Are you having shoulder zips as well as the crotch zips? Regulation is a good choice. Ask them about custom sized suit. Costs a little more but well worth it!
