I’m attending the swms on June 1 & 2. I’m not a complete beginner in open water, but haven’t much experience. Someone asked about the need for wetsuits and the reply was that it’s a personal choice. Looking for a little more guidance. I believe I’ll be able to acclimate to the water, but will need the wetsuit during that process. Is a core body wetsuit sufficient? What should I be considering? From what I’ve learned so far, I can spend a lot of money on a wetsuit and then discover it doesn’t do what I want it to do. Looking for detailed guidance and if anyone has one I can borrow, I’m a women’s size 16. I’m 5’9 ish. Thanks.
