What kind of diving? Freediving, scuba or both? It's possible to use a specialized wetsuit for the other, but obviously the best choice would be to buy the equipment designed for your kind of diving.

most affordable/best quality
Not sure those two properties can be found in the same suit, unless you start comparing to triathlon suits.

I use an Elios custom suit, which actually is my first suit. I knew that I would be diving many times a week, I even moved to a different country to live near the sea, so investing in something good from the start seemed a better choice than buying cheap stuff that's intended to be replaced often.

After years of freediving, recreationally, competitively, and in the industry (coaching and teaching)

You cannot go wrong with Elios. In terms of custom tailored wetsuits they are priced at the best value.. molchanovs is 200euro more for same quality, and other brands might be cheaper but won't last 3-5 years like a well taken care of elios does..

They make too many neoprene options, but I can narrow it down for you.. since you are a beginner (in the UK) you need a simple 5mm open-cell inside, stretch nylon outside.

Follow this link: https://www.eliossub.com/product/f___hoodie_pants/

and check the photo I attached , to see the selections you need to make to get the right neoprene.. the rest is straight forward, you may need to look around the website to find the measurement guide to know how to measure yourself..
