Perfect fit for your individual measurements

Correct fit is crucial for comfort and thermal performance of a SUPSKIN paddlesuit. There is a suitable standard size for everyone, but nothing compares to the perfect fit of a made-to-measure suit. Our tailors draw up your individual cut based on 10 basic body measurements and produce your unique suit. The made-to-measure option is available for the following models:

DYNAMIC Performance / Racing Paddle Suit: Women's / Men's

MAGIC Heavy-duty Paddle Suit: Women's / Men's

ULTIMATE Winter Touring Paddle Suit: Women's / Men's


We recommend to visit your local tailor with our measurement sheet below, they'll know what to do. But you can certainly handle the measuring tape yourself. Here is how it’s done.

Before you start measuring

  • It’s a two-man (or woman) job, don’t try to do it by yourself.
  • All you need is a standard measuring tape and the print-out of the sheet below.
  • Wear undergarments or thin and close-fitting clothes - it will make a difference.
  • Don’t add any slack, just take the actual body measurements without any adjustments
  • Keep the tape close to your skin but without depressing it. You should be able to put a finger behind the tape, but no more than that
  • For horizontal measurements, make sure the tape measure is level around your body and parallel to the floor


The neck measurement is taken around the neck at middle height between shoulders and chin



Measure all the way around your chest and back under your armpits on the line of your nipples, make sure the tape stays level. Stand in a relaxed posture and breathe out.



Measure the circumference at the narrowest point, usually just above the belly button. Don’t suck in your stomach, stand in a relaxed posture and breathe out.



Measure around the widest part of the hipbones. Start at one hip and wrap the tape around your rear, around the other hip, and back to where you started.



Think of a line going straight up from your armpit to your shoulder. Measure between those two points and hold the tape measure straight.



With your elbow bent slightly, start at the bone at the shoulder/top of the arm and measure down on the outside of your arm to the elbow, and then on to the wrist just past the bone at the outside.



This is the distance from the uppermost inner part of your thigh to the bottom of your ankle just past the bone on the inside. 



Start right above the upper end of your breast bone in the middle of your rip cage, and measure straight down to your crotch.



Your normal body height, head to toe.
