Billabong Women’s Synergy 5/4 - $299.95

“Elevate Your Warmth”

Billabong Women’s Synergy 5/4

First up, the Billabong Synergy has it all: affordable price point, groundbreaking graphene technology, eco-friendly materials, and flexible rubber. With features like that, it’s no surprise this suit took the top spot.

The Superlight foam neoprene is incredibly soft and supple, constructed out of up-cycled car tires and leftover neoprene scraps. On the inside, the suit's core has a purple honeycomb-looking graphene liner known for its heat-producing properties. As someone who runs cold, I love how warm my graphene liner feels while sitting out in the lineup.

In addition, all seams are glued and blind stitched (GBS) with an eco-friendly water-based adhesive. The Superflex Neo Tape is used inside the wetsuit in high-stress areas such as the chest, back, inner thighs, and knees. The Synergy runs true to size and fits well for ladies with more curves or an athletic build.

If you’re shopping on a budget or looking for a dependable backup suit, the Synergy is a great option. With its durability and all-around great fit, check out the hottest suit at Cleanline today! Read our full review of the Billabong Women’s Synergy Wetsuit.

“New to the wetsuit game, and my daughter and I tried several. We both chose this suit to fit our curvier/average bodies, and it was the most comfortable to get on and off and had the best fit.”

Roxy Women’s Swell Series 5/4/3 - $309.95

“Wide Entry Point”

Roxy Women’s Swell Series 5/4/3

The aesthetically pleasing and stylish Roxy Swell Series was recently released in 2022. The Swell replaces the highly popular Syncro Series. Many first-time wetsuit buyers often reach for this suit with its affordable price point.

Roxy uses an eco-friendly neoprene, StretchFlight, that is partially made from scrap rubber tires. On top of that, the suit maintains a flexible feel with the GBS seams. The WarmFlight thermal lining in the chest, sides, and back traps your core body heat in the suit, keeping you warm long into your session.

While all the other suits on this list have a slant zip entry, the Swell stands out as the only option where the zipper completely detaches, allowing for a bigger entry to get pull the suit on and off.

Finally, the Swell runs on the slender side with a feminine cut in the hips and chest. For you taller ladies, this is one of the rare gems that’s available in an 8T and 10T (T refers to “Tall”). Roxy has been a staple of the women’s surf culture for years, and we’re stoked to see wetsuit development progress. Read our full review of the Roxy Women’s Swell Wetsuit.

Buell Women’s RB2 5/4 - $299.95

“Durable Seam Construction”

Buell Women’s RB2 5/4

Cleanline was thrilled when Buell released the women’s model of the RB2, which had previously only been available for men. The fact that it ranks as a top-recommended suit speaks volumes about the design and thought that went into this beauty. It takes the cake as one of the best “value for your dollar” options.

The RB2 is one of the few mid-entry suits available with a durable exterior fluid seam weld, which Buell refers to as Sizzle seam seal. All seams are GBS, and with the highly flexible Ninja Neoprene and cozy thermal barrier, the RB2 offers all the warm and fuzzy feels when the water temperature dips below 50 F. From our experience, Buell is cut true to size with a forgiving fit in the curvy lady areas due to the stretchy rubber.

If you’re looking to charge the swell during your next cold water session, the RB2 won’t let you down. Once you peel the suit off, look for Buell’s hidden graphics and messages on the inside. It’ll be sure to make you smile. Grab yours today since these suits sell quickly. Don’t forget to take read through our full review of the Buell Women's RB2 Wetsuit.

Customer Feedback

“I never leave reviews. This suit, though, is absolutely fantastic. I stay super warm in mid 50s water. This suit fits like a dream on my 5’6” curvy 145lb frame. It’s a little snug getting it over my hips, but once on, it fits really well, and it’s so comfortable. If I keep my hood on, I come out of the water with a pretty much dry head. This wetsuit rocks! Finally, a decent hooded suit that is built with a woman’s frame in mind. I highly recommend this wetsuit.”
