  1. If you're overweight, your body works harder underwater than otherwise. You use more energy and lose heat faster, meaning you need a wetsuit to keep you from losing too much heat.
  2. If you're wearing a wetsuit that is too tight, it can constrict blood vessels near the surface of your skin, increasing your risk for DCS or cardiac events (according to Divers Alert Network). It can also contribute to stress while diving in rough conditions.

Consider getting a new wetsuit or altering one to fit you correctly. We can certainly do a future alteration to remove the extra neoprene when you drop a size or two.
