Shorty wetsuits can also be called springsuits or short wetsuits. Like the name says, shorty wetsuits are short - shorter than a full body wetsuit that is. They come down to about above the knee. Shorty wetsuits are designed for use in warm to cool water temperatures.
Long Sleeve Springsuits
Long sleeve springsuits provide more warmth than short sleeve springsuits because they offer more coverage. Buying a short or long sleeve wetsuit really depends on your preference. Some people like the way a long sleeve springsuit will make them glide through the water more smoothly with less effort when swimming. Others believe long sleeves take away from the "feel" of the water and would rather have a short sleeve suit, even though long sleeve springsuits enhance overall swimming performance. It all depends on personal preference. You're the one that needs to be comfortable.
