Do you catch a chill in the ocean or while playing around in the pool? If so, a basic recreational swimming wetsuit will keep the chill off.
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 here.
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 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.
