Water aerobics allows a person to exercise every muscle and joint in the body all at the same time. Sometimes though, your pool might be too cold or you could catch a chill from the outside air. For moments like those, we recommend that you consider adding a thin water aerobics wetsuit for your workout!

The most popular water aerobics wetsuit is a top and/or bottom set consisting of a wetsuit top and shorts. The 2 piece concept allows for maximum range of motion and flexibility. An added benefit is that you can mix and match sizing for the top and bottom.
Our best selling wetsuit for water aerobics is the NeoSport Front-Zip Vest because it offers excellent range of motion, lots of warmth, and an easy front zipper. This vest is available in Men’s sizes up to 6XL, and Women’s up to 18. Most customers in warm to moderate pools start with this product and then add shorts or pants if they need some extra insulation.
Full front zippers are rare in the wetsuit world, but are in high demand for water aerobics customers who need a hassle free experience. We have a pretty awesome selection of full front-zip wetsuit gear!
Looking for more warmth than a vest or jacket? Check out our 1 piece wetsuit offerings. We have sleeveless shorty wetsuits and sleeveless fullsuits for men and women. Remember, full front zippers make wetsuits less cumbersome.
Care and maintenance of your wetsuit is important for water aerobics customers exercising in chlorinated pools. Chlorine inevitably reduces the lifespan of any neoprene product, but you can take steps to minimize the damaging effects. The most important wetsuit care tip that we can share is to rinse the suit in fresh water after EVERY use and hang dry OUT of direct sunlight.
Customers in chlorine 3+ days per week should consider investing in a wetsuit shampoo & conditioner combo. Simply dump a capful in a 5 gallon bucket and dunk your wetsuit prior to a freshwater rinse. Wetsuits cleaners and conditioners help keep the neoprene soft and supple. *You can reuse the solution over and over for maximum bang for the buck!
In our Wetsuit Wearhouse Video Series, we break down all there is to know about wetsuits for water aerobics. Watch it below!

Hi I’m in Australia looking to buy a plus sized (22) full wet suit to be able to use my outside pool in winter.
Do you stock and ship to Australia?
In order for us to really help you we need to know chest, height and weight measurements as well as the water temperatures you’ll be swimming in. We’re definitely happy to help you find what you need or are looking for so please feel free to reach out to our customer service team either via live chat or email, email@example.com.
What type of wetsuit should I use for outdoor pool lap swimming in the winter?
Hi! A triathlon suit is the best type of suit for swimming. Check them out here. The cut will depend on the water temp and your personal preference.
Looking for size 3x vest for water walking exercise – can you suggest site that has plus size zipper vests? Previous bought velco closing vest but can’t find that site now
Based on what you’re looking for, check out this full zip front vest by NeoSport: https://www.wetsuitwearhouse.com/PROD/SX125MF.html. Thank you!
I am doing water aerobics at my local Y. The water feels very cold to me. What do you recommend?
Hi! Awesome. I would check out some wetsuit tops. Most of the time, a vest is exactly what is needed when you’re in a pool that feels cold. Check them out here:
looking for women wet suit for aerobics in 84-87% pool in FL; would l sleeves or ss be better? i am size 14-16; what do you suggest please. tku! Roni
I think a sleeveless suit should be perfect for those water temps! Plus, it will allow you full range of motion. Check out this suit: https://www.wetsuitwearhouse.com/PROD/SX125WF.html. Thank you!
I am not sure what I should invest in. I do water aerobics/exercise, but the water is too cold. It is heated and indoors and suppose to be 84, but with nerve damage I can’t get warm or handle standing it for more than 30 minutes at the max. Confused between the 1, 1.5, 2 mm, thinking sleeves vs no sleeves, can you help clear things up for me?
It sounds like maybe you should try this long sleeve top that’s 1.5mm thick: https://www.wetsuitwearhouse.com/PROD/SX150WN.html. That thickness should help keep you warmer, longer and it’s also stretchy and comfortable. Keep in mind though that because you are using this neoprene top in the pool, the chlorine will deplete the longevity of the top. Thanks and let us know if you need any additional help!
Hi, i have fibromyalgia and current indoor pool dropped temps from 87 to 82 . It will stay there as it’s a commercial pool with laps. Being a senior coach, we are now too cold to go anymore. Wondering about a full suit verses half and the difference in terms of heat while exercising lightly in cold water. Thank you.
I would recommend just trying a wetsuit vest or jacket first. A fullsuit will be very warm in a heated pool over 80. If you’re still concerned about being cold with just a top, check out some shorty springsuits. Check out this link: https://tinyurl.com/y7omsobv. Please feel free to reach out to our customer service team either via live chat, email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call us at 866-906-7848. Thank you!
I have an indoor chlorinated lap pool. I heat the water to 82 and am comfortable with no wet suit once I get going. I would like to save some energy/fuel and would like to heat it to 70 or so in the winter. Do you have a recommendation for a wet suit?
Sure. Depending on your tolerance for cold, you would have a few options. If you do really well with cold water, a wetsuit jacket would work. If you want a little more protection, take a look at some springsuits or 3/2mm fullsuits. Here are the springsuits (you can further filter by gender and sleeve length): https://www.wetsuitwearhouse.com/wetsuits/category/shorty-wetsuits.html. And here is our selection of 3/2mm fullsuits: https://www.wetsuitwearhouse.com/wetsuits/category/fullsuits.html#/filter:thickness:3$252F2mm. Thank you!
planning to swim laps for excercise. speedo race suits are waay too unflattering. traithalon suit or aquatard looks more appealing, but I have not tried swimming in these. Do these feel normal to swim laps in?????
Thank you so much for your time!
I would recommend a jane style triathlon wetsuit for swimming laps. They maximize glide while lowering any drag and there’s a buoyancy panel which helps you ‘float’. I suggested a jane too because they are less restricting in the arms and shoulders compared to full triathlon wetsuits. Here’s a great long jane recommendation: https://www.wetsuitwearhouse.com/PROD/S553WB.html. Thanks!
I’m looking for a wetsuit to do water aerobics in my pool this winter in Florida. Water temperature can get down to 60 degrees
Take a look at some 3/2mm suits. These should work well for your water temps: https://www.wetsuitwearhouse.com/wetsuits/category/womens-wetsuits-32mm.html. Also keep in mind that chlorine can damage neoprene so be sure to properly wash and dry your wetsuit. Here’s a helpful article for that: https://www.wetsuitwearhouse.com/blog/how-to-store-a-wetsuit/. Thank you!
I just had both my knees replaced and lost about 15to18 pounds. I do water arobics in 80to83 degree waqter and now I am freezing in my upper torso. What would you advise on a upper suit with half sleeves. AAlso, I should be able to regain maybe 10 pounds in the next 6 months so I need to know if you have a suit that does not conform to any weight gains that is pretty flexible. Thanks for your help. Lee
Over short sleeves, I would really recommend going with something that has a front zipper. A full front zipper makes entry and exit much easier. Unfortunately, there are very, very few short sleeve full front zip products. Here are some good long sleeve front zip products to take a look at: https://www.wetsuitwearhouse.com/wetsuits/category/mens-neoprene-tops.html#/filter:zipper_type:Front$2520Zip. Hope that helps, thank you!
Hi, is there a suit that you would recommend for my elderly Mom. She is short 5’2 but needs probably a size 16. She gets in her outdoor pool in Florida to walk and do exercise and it is too cold for her in the winter. I was looking for something with a 3/4 sleeve if that exists because I feel the long sleeves might be too long for a petite person. I was considering a jacket like mine but thought a shorty might work better for her if it is relatively easy to put on. She has some help.
A shorty springsuit would work well for her and it’s fairly easy to put on, especially a front zip wetsuit. Height shouldn’t be an issue either with a springsuit. However, be sure to pay attention to her chest, waist and weight measurements to see if a size 16 is the perfect fit. This 3mm Women’s Henderson Thermoprene Shorty with a front zip is a great option and has a great size run: https://www.wetsuitwearhouse.com/PROD/A630WF.html. If you need additional help, feel free to reach out to our customer service team either via live chat, email (email@example.com) or call 866-906-7848. Thank you!
I need a shorty wetsuit with a front zipper or a top and shorts for swimming in outdoor pool, unheated, in Orlando. What suggestions do you have? I do not know the water temperature, but it is definitely too cold for me.
Thanks for asking! Here’s a great option for a shorty with a front zipper: https://www.wetsuitwearhouse.com/PROD/A630WF.html. However, if the water temperatures are below 70 degrees Fahrenheit, you could try layering pieces like these shorts: https://www.wetsuitwearhouse.com/PROD/SX210UN.html with a long sleeve top like this (it does not have a zipper though): https://www.wetsuitwearhouse.com/PROD/SX150WN.html. Hope that helps!
I’m looking for a wetsuit for woman.
Front zipper, short sleeves & shorts attached. I weigh 138lbs,
5feet 4 inch tall my cloth size is a size 10
This women’s 3mm Henderson Thermoprene short sleeve springsuit with a full front zipper is a great option: https://www.wetsuitwearhouse.com/PROD/A630WF.html. However, keep in mind that your clothing size is not the same as your wetsuit size. Check out the size chart on this product page to see which size your measurements line up with best. You’ll want to go off of your bust measurement (not bra size) first and then your other measurements (waist, hips and weight) next in order to find the best wetsuit size. If you need help with sizing or anything else, contact our customer service team either via live chat, email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call 866-906-7848. Thank you!
Hello Lauren, my name is Bobbie and I want something that protects my skin from the cholrine. I will be doing water arobics in an inside pool most of the time, so full coverage and flexibility is most important. Not so worried about temperature. I will also wear gloves, and water shoes, if you have any direction on those products that would be wonderful. I know there may be some chlorine that gets to my body but I can try this and see how I respond. Thank you so much!!
I appreciate any thoughts you can give me.
Much Care, Bobbie
Hey there Bobbie,
Thanks for reaching out about this! We’ve got a great selection of full wetsuits which will offer you full coverage and flexibility: https://www.wetsuitwearhouse.com/wetsuits/category/fullsuits.html#/filter:sports_combined:Water$2520Aerobics. The 2 to 3mm thickness range will suit you best for an indoor pool. As far as gloves and boots go, it’s totally up to you and your price/personal preference. Boots and gloves in the 1mm to 3mm range will suit you best temperature-wise. Here is our wetsuit boot selection: https://www.wetsuitwearhouse.com/wetsuits/category/wetsuit-boots.html and here is our wetsuit gloves selection: https://www.wetsuitwearhouse.com/wetsuits/category/wetsuit-gloves.html.
As far as the chlorine goes, it will definitely get on your body even with a wetsuit on. Wetsuits work by trapping water (which in this case means chlorinated water) and that water heats up between your skin and the neoprene of the wetsuit. It won’t be a ton of water, but there will definitely be water that touches you. Also important to note is that over time, without proper care, chlorine can destroy neoprene – which is why chlorine damage is not covered by a warranty. You’ll want to rinse your wetsuit in fresh water after each use (you can use a wetsuit-specific shampoo) and hang it out to dry. Here’s a great article on how to take care of your suit: https://www.wetsuitwearhouse.com/blog/wetsuit-care/.

I’ve got Raynauds and had to stop water aerobics because of the water being so cold even at 85 degrees. My feet and legs get so cold and crampy, I cannot stay in the pool more than 25-30 minutes before they start aching and I end up hanging on the side of the pool because I can’t move. I really miss water aerobics and want to get back into it, so good for this old body. I’m thinking a vest, pants and heated shoe/booties for my feet. Most concerned about keeping the feet warm. I am open for suggestions, what would you suggest? Thank you.
A top and a bottom sound like a great idea. NeoSport would be a good brand to consider: https://www.wetsuitwearhouse.com/wetsuits/category/neosport-wetsuits.html
A front zip vest would be very easy to use and provide some significant warmth. As far as heated boots… we wish we could help there! We are not aware of any heated wetsuit boots. Regardless, the NeoSport boots are top sellers here year after year.
Let us know if you have any additional questions or need help. Thank you!
