True LiesThat I watched a movie True Lies made me know how a dry suit is used. It can keep a diver warm and dry under ice water. Arnold Schwarzenegger wear shirt under the dry suit. After he has taken off the dry suit, he can wear a tuxedo at once and go to a diplomatic banquet.
This is the scene of how Arnold takes off his dry suit.

Had he used a front-zipper dry suit that can be self-donned, it would have been more convincing.
I also had another question from this scene. Can a shirt that was worn under a dry suit be as straight as a just ironed shirt? I did my proof later.

Diving in water, we often feel to have pee because of the phenomenon of immersion diuresis.
Wearing dry suit can't urinate as free as wetsuit in which we may do whenever we want, if it isn't installed a pee valve. For men, their penis wears an uridome, which is similar to a condom but with an open end, to attach the pee valve. Therefore, the wearing procedure is very similar to wearing condoms with a little trick.
Wearing uridomeIn the contrary, women can't enjoy such freedom. They used to wear diapers as their anatomy of genital is difference until 2006.
A female diver, Heleen who is a Dutch, invented a primary version of she-p, which was made by latex, because she had envied the freedom of male divers. As a lot of people had an allergy to latex. Nowadays, they are made by medical grade silicone.

We dived in winter and some places where water temperature is lower than 15 degree. We were ready to go to South Africa trip.
Can shirt keep stright?I wanted to prove whether True Lies is true. I wore a shirt with tie as undergarment. When I have been descending, the water pressure has been applying pressure on the dry suit and squeezing the
