Frequently Asked Questions


 

SIZING AND PRODUCT INFORMATION 

+ How does the sizing on your suits run?

Seea’s suits run pretty true to size according to the size chart. Because our suits are designed for watersports and being active, we occasionally will have some fabrics that are thicker, sturdier and do not stretch out as much as other swim fabrics some customers are used to. Some customers have found that our suits fit more snugly than what they typically wear. If you are unsure about your size or if you are on the border of two sizes we recommend sizing up. In particular for our rashguards and high-waisted bottoms which are slim cut, we recommend choosing one size up from your normal size.

+ I’m a size DD cup or larger. Will your suits fit me?

Please refer to the size chart, which explains the measurement around your bust line for the most accurate sizing. Generally, if you have a smaller ribcage and larger cup size (for example, a 32D) you should be able to find a nice fit according to your size on the chart. Please note that the coverage on the suits vary per suit based on your cup size and coverage preferences.

If you are looking for more coverage on your chest, we recommend the Soleil, Jalama, Milos, and Solimar bikini tops. Most of these tops feature sturdier adjustable straps, wider bands under the bust and around the back for fuller coverage, and supportive elastic under the bust. The San-O one-piece also offers more chest coverage that the average triangle top, and a supportive elastic band under the bust. Many customers find the Lido to be comfortable because of the thicker C-Skin fabric offers support and coverage in the chest.

+ According to your size chart I am a different size on top and on bottom. Which size should I order if I want a one-piece or a surf suit?

If you typically order two different sizes for your top and bottom, we recommend that you go with the larger size to ensure that the fit is not too restricting. For example, if you are a size medium bikini top and size small bikini bottom, we recommend ordering the size medium one-piece or surf suit.

+ Do your surf suits have a shelf bra? Do I need to wear a bikini top underneath a surf suit?

Sorry, but our surf suits do not have a shelf bra. The Hermosa, The Avila, The Zuma and The Solanas are all lined from top to bottom, front and back. The Swami’s is only lined in the shorts part of the suit, but not on the top of the suit.

In the case of the lined surf suits (The Hermosa, The Avila, The Zuma and Solanas) many smaller-chested girls feel supported enough with the double lining, however most girls who are larger-chested prefer to wear a bikini top underneath for extra modesty and support.

For the Swami’s, which is unlined in the top, we recommend wearing your favorite supportive bikini top underneath. (Our Solimar, Jalama, Soleil and Capitola bikini tops are all stellar choices since they lay flat with no ties). One way to think about it is that The Swami’s is a rashguard and shorts in one. So in the same way that you would probably wear a bikini top under a rashguard, most women wear a bikini top underneath the Swami’s.

+ According to the size chart, my bust, waist and hips are one size, but I am tall and have a long torso. What size should I order in a one-piece suit or a surf suit?

In these cases, we recommend going with the larger size to accommodate for length. For example, if you are a size medium in your bust, waist and hips according to the size chart, but your height says that you should be a size large, we recommend purchasing the size large. Our rashguards, surfsuits and one-pieces have a slim and fitted cut that should still fit snugly and not too loosely. In most cases, choosing the smaller size will be too short if you have a longer torso.

+ Are your suits UPF rated? What does the UPF rating mean?

Yes, the fabric in our suits are rated UPF 30+ to 50+. We have all seen SPF rating numbers on sunscreen bottles, which is used to rate products that you put directly on your skin. Clothing (like rashguards) is not SPF-rated, instead it is UPF-rated, which means that it is rated by the fabric’s ability to block UV rays.

 

For more information about UPF ratings, what they mean, and how you can protect yourself from the sun, please read our page: SPF and UPF: The Difference Matters
