the perfect fit

MARY FRANCES EMMONS joined Sport Diver in 2009 and Scuba Diving in 2012, serving as features, senior and deputy editor. A diver since 2006, she was named editor-in-chief in 2018. 34-27-37, 6' 38-32-41, 5'6" The first of these two female divers is a 27-year-old who’s built like a supermodel. The second is a 55-year-old who is, um, not. Yet these test-team divers were able to wear the exact same suit—in more than one model—in ScubaLab’s 5mm tests (“Warm and Fuzzy,” page 35). What gives?

The fifth annual Women’s Dive Day will be celebrated this month in more than 100 countries around the world by thousands of divers. On July 20, dive shops, clubs and groups will host events in what has become the world’s biggest underwater block party, a global celebration of scuba divers’ shared passion for the ocean. Though PADI created the fun-filled day to support female participation in the sport, events associated with Women’s Dive Day have evolved to transcend gender. Both women and men participate in causes that are mostly inclined toward conservation and community undertakings, ranging from ocean cleanups to teaching orphaned girls how to dive. In honor of this year’s Women’s Dive Day, we profile three female divers: a spunky dive instructor from a remote Pacific island; a free-spirited marine biologist-cum-liveaboard…
