My son is about to outgrow his size 3 O’Neill reactor shorty, so I ordered this in size 4 since it is cheaper. It was no taller than his old one, but maybe a little wider in the leg. I exchanged it for a 6 for height. The 6 had a little room to grow for height but is baggy and will do no good. For a more filled out kid it would probably work. It appears to be good quality (similar to his O’Neill one). The size chart on the tag is slightly different than that shown in Amazon’s description – with size 4 starting at 3’7" instead of 3’9". The size charts for O’Neill and NeoSport are pretty similar, but I am switching back to O’Neill for a better fit on my skinny kid (3’8. 5", 44 pounds). Check it out!

NeoSport Wetsuits Youth Premium Neoprene 2mm Youth’s Shorty Review
I would assume that this would work fine for children who are not too skinny. My daughter is 4Ft and only 42 lbs. As you can imagine, it is pretty hard to find clothes let alone a wet suit that should be a tight fit on her. I tried the size 4 first and it was skinny enough but too short so her arms and shoulders were restricted. Then I tried the size 6 and the length was great but way too loose to keep any heat in the suit for her to swim around. I had to end up returning both sizes and went with the O’Neill Reactor and that seems to do the job. I ended up getting her a size 6. It is fit enough with just a bit of play so she has some room to still grow into it. If you found my review helpful, please hit the helpful button! -Read Reviews-

Bought 2 of these for my boys for an upcoming snorkeling trip in January, but one of them has worn his to the indoor pool as the water is so cold (and he is so skinny) it makes him turn blue and shiver after just a short time. He was finally able to swim for over an hour without turning colors! I usually have to pull him out and warm him up after 30 minutes for fear of hypothermia, but this wetsuit allowed him to maintain a good body temp until we were all ready to go home. I’m very happy with this product so far and will purchase larger sizes as he grows. As for sizing, I think the size chart from Neosport was close, but we needed to order up a size because of long torsos. According to the chart, my small 9 year old was in the middle of the height range for size 6 and upper end of weight range for size 6. My 6 year old was in the middle of the height for size 4 and low end of weight for size 6. I got them both a size 6. My 6 year old has a long torso so I figured the extra length would be good for him. Size 6 fit him great. It was too small in the torso for my 9 year old though. We exchanged it for size 8 and it fits nicely. I would recommend going by your child’s weight to determine sizing. If your child is at the upper end of the weight range, then size up.
