    Trimming my brand new wetsuit?

    okay guys i tried on 4 different suits at wrv and the medium seemed to be the best fit...
    i am 5'5'' and about 150 pounds. apparently i have extra short arms and legs because my brand new billabong revolution has some slack at my wrists and ankles...
    my question is this. would it be possible to trim them down an inch or two? will i still have a seal there? the end is just a straight cut already anyways. what do i do with the stitch at the end if i do cut it? is there a way to keep it from unstitching?

    any help would be appreciated...

    return the suit and try on a different brand and find the right one that fits perfect.

    if its only like a 1" just keep it the same and when you put on booties and gloves the thickness of the gloves and booties will take up the extra length.
