Dry suits are not meant to keep a diver warm; they are designed to keep the clothing from getting wet. It may be even possible that a diver may get wet from perspiration or a leak in the suit. The types of materials to wear under the dry suit include pile fleece, polypropylene or wool as these types of materials will keep you insulated even when wet - avoid wearing cotton.

My fiance told me that she thinks I should wear a morning suit for our wedding. What exactly does that mean?


The morning suit is for very formal weddings where the bride and groom want to look very smart and traditional. It's the kind of look that royalty get married in. You can wear neckties with morning suits and then you get to add splashes of color to the look.

I bought a 3 piece suit for my wedding and now I really dont have the opportunity to wear it. How can I get use out of it, it just seems like such a waste of money?


One suggestion is to wear to the suit without the vest. The vest is what makes it seem like a very formal clothing item. You can just wear the suit by itself for other people's weddings, interviews etc.

Also you can use the vest without the suit, pairing it with jeans and a t-shirt when you go out.

Any clues what to do when you try on suits? Should I wear something specific?


It's a good question because if you want to buy a suit and make a good choice you need to be wearing a dress shirt and socks and dress shoes when you try it on. Make sure there are good mirrors (3 way mirrors are the best).

Check whether the pants sit well at the waist and if the leg length is right for you.

What is a dry suit and how is it different to a wet suit.


A dry suit is loose fitting apart from a sealed neck, wrists and ankles to stop the water getting in. Dry suits do not provide insulation and the clothes worn under the dry suit keep the people warm they are used more for deep sea diving. Wet suits no not keep a person dry but they are insulated to keep the person warm during water sports or scuba diving.

Scuba suit need?


"Wet suits and dry suits are very important when it comes to scuba diving. Your normal body temperature hovers around 98.6F (37C). If you are scuba diving in water that is cooler than your body temperature your temperature will drop. In all water, even the warmest, tropical waters, you will need thermal protection, like a wet suit, dry suit or dive skin, to keep warm and to keep safe while scuba diving. The cold affects our ability to think and our physical response time slows, which can lead to an accident. Warm tropical water will begin to feel cold after prolonged scuba diving, so it is always a good idea to wear light insulation at a minimum. When choosing thermal protection, like a wet suit or dry suit, you need to consider the following factors: Water temperature Your activity level during a dive Your body size You should always wear more insulation in colder water and lighter insulation in warmer water. Your level of activity can be a good indicator of how much insulation you should wear during a scuba dive. The more active you are during a dive the more heat your body generates and the warmer you remain throughout your dive. Larger scuba divers may need less insulation than smaller scuba divers and small, muscular scuba divers may need less insulation than larger scuba divers. It is important for you to try different amounts of insulation in differing water temperatures to determine what you need. Some scuba divers need more insulation than others, regardless of activity or size. Some scuba divers can dive in tropical water wearing only a lycra body suit, commonly known as a dive skin, while others need a 2mm wet suit. Some scuba divers can dive in cold water wearing only a 6mm wet suit, while others need the protection of a dry suit. If you are scuba diving in water below 55F (12.7C), a dry suit is the warmest type of thermal insulation available. Dive skins, wet suits and dry suits also protect your skin from cuts, scrapes, abrasions and stings which can occur while you are scuba diving. A simple brush against specific forms of coral and fish can cause painful irritations and burns on bare skin, but may not be noticeable or even occur, if your skin is protected."
