The iconic Nineplus Ladies catsuit in 3/2mm, we started making this model of wetsuit in 2002 and were probably the first brand to put the zip in the front of the wetsuit which had not been done since the mens suits of the 1970's. We did this when other companies thought we were crazy and it would never work. The reason we did was we wanted to differentiate the ladies and mens wetsuits and felt that the aesthetic created and extenuated the ladies figure. In 2015 we changed the torso and not only increased the zipper length but also made the bodice using 8 separate pieces of neoprene copying a ladies 1920's corset. This created not only a very good fit but also a very flattering effect and an even more feminine style. Its still comfortable as there is a small panel behind the zipper of 3mm so its still comfortable to lay on.
Smooth-skin is the warmest and lightest material for surfing - period. It neither absorbs water or allows the wind to pass through it. That means you are lighter and you dont use energy pulling water around thats trapped in your wetsuit nylon. You cut through the water like a seal and any sunshine warms the surface of the neoprene as it stays dry - all the time. Genius? Not really - its the original way of making wetsuits before people tried to turn them into profit making, brand advertising, techno whatevers. Simple, Warm & Smooth.
