Looking to buy 7mm wetsuit

Hi everybody! I'm a female student at UC Berkeley, and I got certified for freediving through Bamboo Reef in SF a few months ago at breakwater in Monterey Bay. I'm looking to purchase a 7mm wetsuit that is reasonably priced from around the Bay Area preferably so I can get an idea of sizing options. I am also open to buying online but in store would be ideal. Any ideas?

Also, does anybody recommend brands that fit well for females? I know I used a Mares two piece at the dive shop for the freediving course and certification but I'm open to anything! I am 5'4" with a more athletic, muscular body so I'm really looking for a good fit!

I'm in the same boat as you, I'm going to go with a custom fit by Polosub... Elios does custom suit too... The pricing for both really isn't that bad when you look at 7mm surf suits. I'm still trying to decide on 5mm or 7mm.
