    How does this tail fit? How true are the measurements that Finfolks gives for these tails? I know that with the Mythic line they tend to run a bit large....
    I measured myself and while my waist fits the XXS the butt doesn't and it looks like I might be a little too tall if I've measured that part right. I've never worn neoprene before but I was aware that there's a tiny bit of a stretch to it, but I don't know how much....
    Should I be more concerned about that waist measurement that's firmly in the XXS measurment or that Butt measurement that's between two sizes? How important is that top ot tail ot ankle measument that I'm between sizes on as well?
    I just really want it to fit right for swimming as I don't want extra drag from it being too loose.
    The Mythic and Fabric sizes are completely different and it's recommended you don't compare them. The fabric neoprene includes the amount of stretch.

    I was stuck between two sizes (cause waist and hips) and chose the smaller one for my waist; I contacted Finfolk about it and that was their recommendation so I wouldn't have drag. I'm with Folly with having the next butt size up, so for the first time trying it on, it was really hard to pull over but the second time was easier. Otherwise the size I received fit well. Another point for me, since the lengths were the same I wasn't worried about that. However for you since the XXS and XS have different lengths, you may want to size up for length alone. You can always take in if necessary. Plus looking at the chart, it's an inch difference of waist between the XXS and XS opposed to three inches of length.

    Also you can contact the girls and tell them your measurements so they can recommend a size. They're your best source if you're unsure.

    Hope that's helpful.

    So I finally got to take it for a swim! And to those planning to purchase one, I have one thing to say -


    For the love of Poseidon, SIZE DOWN!!!


    My tail, which I can barely squeeze into on land, felt like it was a size too big underwater. I was constantly trying to pull out wrinkles. If they don't release custom sizing then I may actually go with an XXS next time.

    There is also a massive amount of drag due to the lack of drainage holes in the fluke. I'm looking into ways to add some, because I felt really slow and got tired very quickly. On the upside though, swimming in it as is will definitely give you a workout. xD

    Other than that though, it was great! Neoprene keeps you a lot warmer than spandex, which was very nice since the pool was a little chilly. And I still can't get over how amazing the scales look and how big the fluke is.


    To any other mers that have had a chance to take these for a swim, how did it fit in the water? I'm curious how everyone else's experiences are!

    I gotta say, this is my first mermaid tail EVER, and I'm so happy it was a finfolk. ;; I can't wait to swim in it. Took a bit of time to get the luna monofin in there.

    My poor pupper was so confused as to where my legs went. xD

    I'm sad because I haven't had a chance to swim in mine yet. I worked on the only warm day this month and now I have a double ear-infection. (Inner ear, so it doesn't hurt, but I don't want to agitate it...)

    They're selling the last of these particular tails today, but they're going to come out with a new line of fabric tails for spring and summer. This is most likely going to be a regular thing from Finfolk now, so if you'd rather save up for one of these tails than a silicone, it's much cheaper and you could get one from the next release.
