Drysuit for curves?

Hey ladies
Well Iíve tried the hydrus from kokatat and now the crux from nrs. Iím starting to think Iím going to have to shell out the big bucks for a custom. A little bit about me.... size D with wide shoulders and a small medium butt/waist. Both products are grossly over sized in the legs and fit ok in the top. However I just spent 15 minutes just trying to get out of the crux itís tight. Any other suggestions before I suck it up and go custom with kokatat or am I destined for a two piece forever? On the other hand I just paid 600 for a demo nrs crux size large that I will send back unless someone else wants it. Itís like new.

I'm stupid tall. I have a custom Kokatat suit.

It's a lifetime purchase, and it's worth it!!

I feel your pain. I too have been unable to find a dry suit to fit. To have curves they think you also have to be 6'4". Even separate dry pants and dry top don't fit. The arms and legs are soooooo long. Any dry suit manufacturer reps out there to offer up solutions for us ladies?

While she wasn't especially curvy, my wife got a custom Kokatat drysuit and never questioned the decision. As you described, all of the "regular" sizes were wrong in one way or another. She loved her drysuit and never had 'drysuit dread'. No they are not cheap, but you know what they say..."Buy nice, or buy twice".

Have you looked at Zealgear, they build a really good custom drysuit for a really good price $700 or so
