I just recently bought a new wetsuit (First Purcahse after using rentals). Wha is the best way to get it to stretch out somewhat before the event in 2 weeks? With the current weather swimming in a lake is not an option. Any advice is welcomed.
The best thing I did was lose about 40 pounds after I bought my wesuit. :-)
Some wetsuits say to NOT use it in a pool. I have an Xterra suit and it says that extensive use in a chlorinated pool can have a negative affect on the suit causing damage.
It won't hurt to swim in a pool a couple of times to make sure it fits. You just have to wash it off. I did that a few times to see how it feels. Word of caution, some indoor pools are pretty warm and swimming in a wetsuit got really hot really fast.
