WETSUITS
A wetsuit keeps you warm by insulating the thin layer of water between your body and the suit. Your own body heat warms this water which results in you staying warm for a longer period of time.
Wet suits should fit snugly so the least amount of water as possible circulates. Water circulating carries body heat away and results in rapid cooling.
For warm water diving a thin suit or shorty may be all that required. For cold water a thicker suit, hood, boots and gloves make all the difference in the world. Some wet suits come in a Farmer John style pants which looks like overalls and adds neoprene thickness and therefore warmth to a divers thoracic area.  
Most wet suits come with some form of knee pads.Knee pads which add considerable life to most suits. Material options such as nylon coated neoprene or plush lining make sliding into the suit a bit easier. Below you will find a wide variety of wet suit manufacturers. I would recommend comparing all options as well as price before deciding on which suit to purchase. Many full service dive shops have rental wet suits which is a good way to test the suit in the planned environment before purchase. This way you know if that stock size fits and if the suit will keep you warm enough.
