As a general rule there are 3 main thicknesses of wet suit: 3mm, 5mm and 7mm. The thinner the suit, the better flexibility of movement you will have but the with less warmth and buoyancy. High quality neoprenes such as DuPont neoprene offers good warmth to buoyancy ratios, imitation neoprenes often have low thermal properties and undesirably high buoyancy properties - these should be avoided.
3mm suits are ideal for the tropics
5mm steamer suits are ideal for the Red Sea and similar areas
7mm suits are suitable for UK summer diving.
