I wear a Gul Contour, wore it yesterday afternoon whilst out on the SUP. After 90 minutes the cold was biting, I think the season is definitely over. https://www.gul.com/Watersports-Wetsuits/Gul/Contour-Full-Wetsuit-Mens-Black-or-Grey-or-Red/317007 £40 from Gul, there was a 10% discount code for signing up. The sizing is "True to Size" so go for your usual size.
It would be ok for UK for the summer and shoulder months (ie May to October) for the occasional sea swim, just not for hours in the water or the colder months. I have a Gul Contour wetsuit which is a little thicker (3.2mm) and is about £40 from Sports direct (https://www.sportsdirect.com/gul-contour-full-wetsuit-mens-888119) but if you're after a true winter suit you'll need 5-7mm thickness
Yes, I agree, this should be a summer wetsuit but not really for the UK waters.
It's decent enough for the price.

I'm cross with myself for being caught as much as anything else. The Paypal free returns is a good spot. Not exactly obvious on the rolling banner and not mentioned in their returns page. Worth noting that the £15 max return claimable only just covers the cost of 1 wetsuit. Basically, if I buy from a .co.uk website I wouldn't expect to return overseas. If I buy from Amazon.fr or Alliexpress I'd expect to return to where they are. Billabong are being disingenuous and that is shaming for a global brand. In these cases I always vote with my feet and buy elsewhere in future.
If you order via PayPal you can claim the return costs though from PayPal? This is what's advertised on their site. It's pretty clear?
THERE IS A GOTCHA ON THIS AND ANY OTHER BILLABONG DEAL. RETURNS ARE TO BELGIUM AND THAT MEANS IT IS EXPENSIVE. ORDERED 2 DIFFERENT SIZE SUITS WITH ONE TO GO BACK, NOTHING OBVIOUS ON THE RETURNS POLICY ON THE WEBSITE BUT YOU ONLY HAVE TO LOOK AT THE TRUST PILOT REVIEWS TO SEE WHAT A SHOWER THIS COMPANY IS.
Expired this as now out of stock.
Shame there’s no men’s at this price

I tried some of their cycling wear; the quality was not that good at all considering the rrp, colours were all over the place and the silicone grip was horrible. I hope that's not how they do most of their items...

Just for the occasional swim in the summer and mild winter months. Just getting into swimming in the open waters. Flexible on the budget but preferably below £100
What use is it going to be for? What time of the year and What's your budget?
You're absolutely right. It wont be the suit's fault though, the hard truth is that its me who's the wrong size, of poorer quality and as i get older, less flexible. Everyone needs to learn their limitations and mine is wet suits and dignity (along with a very long list of life failings). To prove your point,When i was younger and slimmer, i did a fair bit of windsurfing and needed a full wet suit, bought a good one and didn't have any problems. Its just now. Woe is me.
Can you recommend a good wetsuit for the Scottish weather?

This is an JXXXS which states it’s ok for 5-6 year olds. Much better quality than the cheap rubbish, and worth investing in, if you are going for a uk based break this year! GUL - RESPONSE…
I bought the JXXXS for £14.98 including postage for my son, hopefully it will be useful. Thanks OP
No good for me but a Stonking deal for a quality suit which makes all the difference. Memories of all those shivering blue kids in cheapo wetsuits - usually two sizes too big so they'd " get a couple of years out of it" :|
Super find Bought & Added heat Thanks for sharing

Not sure if the 'up to 80% off' applies just to discontinued models or 'ex demo' models, if the latter, you should probably look here. Anything beyond 'B' looks to be not worth having IMO https://zone3.com/pages/ex-demo-wetsuits-grading-terms There probably are some bargains here, voted hot

Ladies wetsuit £14.99 +£2.95 delivery @ Aldi£18.94
I've got the male version, definitely recommend it for its suitability for open water. Like all suits all this type, just research how to put them on, otherwise you'll be covered in nail marks on your first outing. Can't beat two plastic bags!
I'm sure you're beautiful on the inside. Au revoir.
Better than you can get. Least I don't need to get my kicks commenting on ladies wetsuits on a deals website. That's just plain sad. (lol)
You don't look that bad dear..................
