Remember when wetsuits used to be boring black numbers with no shape and just made to fit your average male surfer?

Thankfully things have moved on since then. Now not only are there beautiful wetsuits cut to fit female bodies, but they come in awesome colours and patterns.

Women’s Wetsuits For Surfing: Which Is The Best Summer Wetsuit?

From classics like Roxy to British newcomers such as Neon Wetsuits, we've put together (arguably) the world's most gorgeous wetsuits.

What do you think?

Roxy Cynthia Rowley anniemcelwain.com

Fashion designer Cynthia Rowley famously teamed up with Roxy a few years ago - and the results were great.

Block colours in a shortie wetsuit style - what more can you ask for? We're just hoping the two brands get together again in the future.

Kassia Wetsuits FreePeople

World famous longboarder and stylish Californian Kassia Meador founded her own wetsuit company last year.

They are without a doubt some of the most beautiful wetsuits we've ever seen.

There's a long sleeved version if you're not sure about rocking a shortie - featuring this alternative tie-dye pattern.

Neon Wetsuits

Neon is the brainchild of surfer Elsie Pinniger who handcrafts these shortie wetsuits in her studio in Newquay, Cornwall.

You can mix and match the colours you'd like - and if your boyfriend's jealous, tell him to check out the men's range.

They've just started stocking wholesale in mainstream shops like Surfdome, but you can still order a custom classic from the Neon website.

Sirensong Wetsuits

They won't quite cut it in cold English waters, but these fab wetsuits from Sirensong are crafted for girls who want a more decorative suit.

Each wetsuit is hand-painted to order and are made from (slightly more) environmentally friendly neoprene called Yamamoto.

There's no denying these wetsuits are pretty unique.

Glide Soul Wetsuits

If you aren't afraid of standing out in the water, you need a GlideSoul wetsuit.

Inspired by 1980s wetsuits, these bright neon neoprene numbers come in all shapes and patterns - from full length suits to mix-and-match neoprene leggings with crop tops.

Our personal favourite is the full length orange and leopard print wetsuit - it's rad!

Billabong Surf Capsule

Billabong have really branched out this season into a whole new crazy sphere of wetsuits.

Instead of plain black full length suits, they've started creating awesome neoprene swimsuits like the one pictured above from their Surf Capsule - and long-john style suits like this one.

C Skins Solace Wetsuit

Jumping on board with the rad shortie wetsuits on the market right now, British wetsuit company C-Skins have made this awesome one for women.

It's called the Solace - and we can testify it's just about warm enough to wear in the sea in the UK on a scorching day.

Abysse Wetsuits

Abysse wetsuits was started by Tahitian surfer and model Hannahlei Reponty.

She started designing wetsuits for tomboy girls who want to surf and look stylish at the same time.

Think high fashion combined with neoprene - and you're just about there.

Oneill Bahia Wetsuit

O'Neill are never ones to compromise when it comes to combining good quality wetsuits with style.

Their new spring range - including the Bahia above - is bang on trend. The Californian company have kept things bright but traditional with their purple Superfreak f.u.z.e, which we are loving.
