A basic recreational swimming wetsuit will help keep the chill off in the ocean or for when you’re playing around in the pool.
For general purpose water play, consider an entry level wetsuit made of Standard Neoprene -or- 30% Stretch Neoprene. If you are swimming laps occasionally, a stretchier suit will be less restricting. Look for a 30-60-or 100% stretch suit depending on your budget. Basically, the stretchier the better!
If you are serious about lap swimming, you should instead consider a triathlon wetsuit. Check out our selection of triathlon wetsuits.
Depending on water temperature, you might need a full body wetsuit (fullsuit), a springsuit, or a top or bottom.
Use the Water Temperature Guide below to determine the type of recreational swimming wetsuit for your needs:

Is awetsuit used as a lifeguard? Will I float?
Are there capri length
To answer your first question, no, wetsuits are not to be used as lifesaving devices – they are not made to be used as a means for flotation. Wetsuits will not provide any significant buoyancy. We do have wetsuit bottoms, but we don’t have a wetsuit that has capri length legs. Here is a link to some wetsuit bottoms but if you are diving, we might want to consider a full wetsuit for UV and abrasion protection: https://www.wetsuitwearhouse.com/search.html#/?_=1&filter.gender=Men%27s&page=1&filter.suit_type=Pants&filter.suit_type=Shorts.
