Thanks for the links, sadly many of them did not offer wet suits at all, and the one who did had no measurement guide, but I'm guessing it doesn't look good...

xterra sizing chart:

desoto has a two piece wetsuit that's cool:
http://www.desotosport.com/wetsuits/index.asp hit the link under t1 wetsuits to find the sizing chart


and QR
http://quintanarootri.com/QR_wetsuits/wetsuits/wetsuits.html

and performance:
http://www.wetsuit.com/web/women_sizing.cfm

if you don't have a tri store w/ wetsuits near you may want to think about renting one from http://www.wetsuitrental.com/ you can try a couple different brands and see which one fits you best.

Well I wrote to some places directly and asked them why they don't do plus sizes, and they said that they tried it but they weren't able to fit every kind of plus body type, so they recommend mens. I'll have to give it a try.

You may also try Promotion Wetsuits at http://www.wetsuit.com It looks like their size 14Short may work.

Also, try contacting DeSoto Sports directly and asking for help sizing.

Both places are very good customer service for assistance or returns.

The t1 is a two piece design and could offer some benefits for fitting.
