How should it fit? It should fit tight yet comfortable. The first time you try the suit on, it should be extra tight, it will stretch out after a short period of use. If you are slim body type or vigorous type, go down respectively up a size in the size table. Be careful, especially when you put on the suit, since the material is sensitive to, for example, sharp nails and powerful pulls. Stretch fabric is a little more difficult to put on, so use caution and small soft pulls when you put on the suit.

BASE Series explanation:

Base S-Line is advanced swimsuits and accessories that are a completely new series for 2015. Designed for swimming in open water and triathlon practitioners. Developed with athletes who practice the sport. Products of high quality, functionality and value.

Base wetsuit Information:

Semidry means that it is almost a dry suit, ie sealed seams, water can only enter through the neck, cuffs and zipper. The advantages of the semidry is; No cold shock when you jump in, it's easy to warm up and retains heat better than a wetsuit does.

Flat lock is a self-locking flat quality seam that is comfortable on the body and is very durable. On all BASE suits that are not GBS.

GBS means Glued and Blind stitched. It is a durable quality seam that is waterproof. A glued seam where the thread is not sewn through the entire material (neoprene).

Liquid Seal is an additional protection of liquid neoprene on the outside of seam. Enhances the stitch that becomes stronger and makes the seam waterproof. Extends the life of an already sealed seam.

Glide Skin is a rubbery surface of the neoprene which does not bind any water and have very little resistance in the water (glides well). It is a very flexible material that allows the neoprene to stretch better. (A little more fragile, so be careful, especially when you put on the suit.)

Glide stretch neoprene is a super stretchy neoprene. Very smooth, very comfortable and very little resistance to movement. Have nylon on the inside and Glide skin on the other side, (see explanation above) which means that it is stretching more than usual stretch neoprene.

Ultra-stretch neoprene is a neoprene stretch most out of our neoprenes and is extremely smooth. Have nylon on the inside and Glide skin on the outside.

Super Stretch Neoprene is a 4-way super stretchy neoprene. Very smooth, very comfortable and very little resistance to movement.
 
Intelligent Entry System (IES) prevents water entering the suit through the zipper and reduces water intake in the throat. It is primarily in the zipper water otherwise enters. IES makes the suit warmer. The actual collar can be cut off if you do not want it. Cut suggestion the seam on the sides of the neck. (Available on all BASE HX suits)
 
Flush leg clears the trapped water in the leg.
