:duh THIRTY SEVEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jeez, well you could get a size 38 fin and try on some (thick) neoprene socks.... I dont think you can get a size 37, maybe you could contact a custom making fin company like specialfins and they could sort you out

I only have a size 37 foot - well its between 36 and 37!! Up until now I've been using cressi garas and the smallest size is a 40-41!! They are ok with 4.5mm socks and fin retainers. However, I now have 3mm smooth skin socks and my feet are occasionaly slipping out of the fin so I need to look at alternatives - will probably get a monofin.

socks

yeah... but wearing 5mm socks to be able to fit my fins... while diving in water that is 30degC... it's a bit warm.....!

i could have sworn i'd seen a 36-37 Sporasub in the shop while i was in the Caribbean but Dive-Inn say that they start at size 38. i am like donna... btwn 36-37 and also a narrow foot.

there must be loads of small female freedivers out there...

Specialfins have just told me no one makes foot pockets smaller than a 38...

But they also said that if thats really too big, they would try to make it smaller, but they weren't sure how effective it would be. For me a 38 with 3mm socks will be fine as I dive in the UK but, yes, I agree, 5mm socks in the Maldives probably will be a bit warm!!!!!

Size 38 may be ok for you, if you use fin retainers as well?

There was a post here somewhere, maybe by Sven (since he has big... feet. ;) ), that explained how to fit a foot pocket to an unusual size.
It said something about cutting to top side of the foot pocket making holes and passing a thread trough them and ending up with something that looks like a shoe with shoelaces...
Maybe also cutting the heal, not sure...

Risky job (if you mess it up it costs you a foot pocket), but a good fit is worth the risk if you ask me.

I am a 38 and my Special Fin with Omer pockets is supposed to be 38-40 but is incredibly tight on me - maybe Omer 38-40s would fit you - worth a try

dilemma

hmmm.... foot pockets and all those little luxuries aren't available here. will have to do some internet shopping.

will try the 3mm socks thing.. and put up with the sweaty feet!
thanks Sam.

surely this is a gap in the market? there must be 100s of women out there with this same problem?
