I am a newly converted Muslim woman who is a certified scuba diver. In order not to freeze when diving in the ocean, it is necessary for divers to wear wet suits and hoods. Such suits fit snugly to the body, so tightly that they do not disclose a woman’s bosom. Is it regarded as acceptable for a woman to wear such a suit? Being unsure, I have not gone scuba diving, an activity which I miss very much indeed!

While you are immersed in the ocean, the wet suit would not pose a problem. However, when you are out of the water it is highly recommended that you wear some other garment over your wet suit or keep yourself covered under a towel.
