You seem to be trying to cover a wide temperature range with 1 suit.
I don't have an elios suit but I do have a well fitting 5mm suit made by a local company in New Zealand.
My suit is open cell inside and is much warmer than my 5mm scuba wetsuits. It keeps me warm for hours in 11 degree water.
When the water is over 20 degrees here in summer, I can still use the 5mm suit. If I get too hot while surface swimming, I just let in a bit of water.
A 5mm suit is the ideal compromise for me, as it will work year round out here.
I recently ordered a 3mm bottom just to be able to drop some weight and in 14-degree water, the 3mm bottom and 5mm top are still more than warm enough.
You might want to look at getting a 3mm suit if your local Greek water is quite warm and ordering a 5mm top at a later stage for when you dive in Sweden?
It sounds like you really need 2 suits in the long term though.
