wetsuit storage

How does everyone store their wetsuits in the winter? I have tried hanging mine on plastic hangers some years and laying down others. It all ends up with the same result....they seem to shrink no matter how you store them!

Mine go in the back of the closet.

Drysuit goes in a black garbage bag.

I use my all year long, but I store them on a hanger... the longest it sits without being used is during the summer!!

Has this strange occurrence seemed to increase once you turned 35? I don't think it is shrinking suit syndrome. I think it is growing Tex syndrome?

I have found that the amount my suits shrink over winter is linear to the amount of Adult Beverages I consume over winter. Weird how that works.

The good thing is that I can still fit in my 10 year old suits. I just need Elka to help zip them up.
