I have to be honest, I haven't used this yet in the water, so I can't comment on how well it works, but I do have to comment on the sizing. I am a thin-average build woman, but I am almost 5'11" so I have a lot of trouble finding women's things that are tall/long enough for me. I really wanted a women's wetsuit because they fit our bodies so much better so when I found this suit in a "tall" length and was so excited. I chose a size 10 based on the size chart because I was right in the middle of the range at 140lbs, but was a little concerned the tall length still wouldn't be tall enough because it says 5'8"-5'10". However this suit fits me PERFECTLY, and the height is perfect for me at almost 5'11" as well. I definitely recommend this suit for tall girls!
