The only thing SCUBA about this garment is the shape! Neoprene is made of synthetic rubber isn't it? {#emotions_dlg.blink}

The description below if from the website of DuPont (who makes neoprene). It makes me wonder who would want to wear an everyday garment made of a rubber simulant, and to me, it doesn't matter if it's George Simonton or the $1000 Balenciaga.

<h1 style="border: 0px; font-family: Arial, 'Segoe UI', sans-serif; font-stretch: inherit; line-height: 25px; font-size: 16px; margin: 0px 0px 13px; padding: 0px; vertical-align: baseline; color: #656e6e;"> DuPont™ Neoprene Polychloroprene</h1>

Invented by DuPont in 1931, Neoprene is a versatile synthetic rubber still used for many chemical and weather-resistant applications today.

DuPont Neoprene polychloroprene was originally used as an oil-resistant replacement for natural rubber.

Today, solid grades are used in synthetic rubber goods, and as base resins for adhesives. Water-based dispersions are ideal for adhesives, dipped goods and foam. Resistant to oil, wax and grease, Neoprene can withstand temperatures from -50°C to 120°C. It’s also inherently resistant to ozone, weathering, and water or soil immersion.

DuPont is the only producer of Neoprene polychloroprene in North America, and our decades of material-specific experience continue to inform new application development around the world.

I wouldn't want to wear a dress made out of neoprene.... I just wonder about the sizing...especially that first dress... I am a scuba diver, and those neoprene wetsuits, tho stretchy, show every bump and curve I have. NOT flattering! {#emotions_dlg.crying}

I have a neoprene hoody from Lulu Lemon. It felt really stiff when I first wore it but then it started to soften up. It is a heavy fabric.

I bought a pair of scuba pants at Stein Mart last weekend. I plan to try them out tomorrow for a few hours. They seem very comfy. I'm worried they'll be too hot to wear all day.
