Hello again. Many thanks for earlier responses re sizing - very helpful. In
a related query...assuming I look for a suit on ebay, must I search only on
'swimming'? (I don't know how much suits vary.) Thing is, if I do a search
on swimming, I get just 15 hits, as against 400+ for either 'scuba and
snorkelling' or 'surfing'. Can I browse thru' these other two categories, or
are the suits fundamentally different (and unsuited for tri swimming)? Many
thanks in anticipation.

swimmimg, surfing and scuba are different activities that have lead to
different types of wetsuits, i.e. you can't swim in a surfing suit.
