Hi scuba mermaids! 🧜‍♀️

I'm interested in getting either a custom 5mm or 7mm as I have a very short and unusual body (5'2 with small waist big hips), and was wondering if you guys have any recs. The ones im looking closely at are:
- Elios Wetsuit - probably a hood, jacket and pants combo (I refuse to pee in my wetsuit) seems highly rated but I know this is dumb...I find the logo SO ugly and garish Elios Sub | The Wetsuit Specialists
- Jonesea $799 Custom Tailored Signature Fullsuit
- 7till8 - super expensive at $1,150 Custom Womens Dive U-zip Hooded Fullsuit

Anything you've heard/tried about these brands? Or anything else you'd recommend? I think the Elios one is quite a bit cheaper but I like that Jonesea/7till8 is more local/US based
Thanks for any reccs or advice!

I can wholeheartedly recommend the family-run Otter Bay Wetsuits, now of Pacific Grove, who have made custom suits, from the ground-up, in a variety of styles and colors, garish or jet black, for decades:

Yeah, they do great work — but I would definitely call ahead, since their hours can be “variable.”

Cricket, yeah that’s her name, will set you up . . .
