I completely agree. I can wear them for quite a few hours when up and about, but not to sleep in for very long at all.
Try starting with a short and thin neoprene. For example, a neoprene swimsuit, which is actually a thin sleeveless short wetsuit. Once your body gets used to it, you can add length and thickness.
Or some variant with a front zipper and leave it open the first night, later closed in half and finally completely. Some swimrun wetsuit.

Likewise. Perhaps start with a front zip suit or one with a really low neck, but later in the year after the weather has cooled.

I went swimming yesterday. It was cold and the water cold so it was clear - triathlon wetsuit.
I dressed in wetsuit at home, I wore jeans and a shirt for wetsuit. I was returning home still dressed in wetsuit, and I didn't even take it off at home. I slept well in it and I'm still wearing it. I won't take it off today because I'm going to swim again. I want to stay in it all weekend and take it off on Monday morning.

Tonight I tried to sleep in a wetsuit under which I was wearing a latex catsuit. Originally I wanted to sleep only in latex, but it was cold at night, so I wore a wetsuit on top. I slept great. It's perhaps even better than sleeping in the wetsuit only. Latex is more pleasant on the skin than the inner fabric of wetsuit.

Its getting to that time of year where its not too hot at night. do you think id have more chance with something like this

or one with short sleeves? id rather go from something like this to a full wetsuit so i dont need many suits to get used to it. at the moment a full suit is impossible.

I think this is a great idea.
Slowly getting used to it might be better than get the "full blast" and you can't enjoy it. Then, after some time, you can slowly increase the coverage.

Yes, I meant something like that.
