Wetsuit recommendations

Living beside the sea and this summer have decided to take sea swimming lessons (Covid-19 permitting). Looking to buy my first wetsuit, obviously I don't want to spend a fortune as this may end up being a passing phase. I have picked out a couple below and would love opinions on these or another in the same price range.

1) DHB Aeron €125

2) DHB Hydron €141

4) Sinx €86 https://www.amazon.de/gp/aw/d/B07FCC...BZB9379U&psc=1

From a quick glance at the links, I'd go with either 1) or 3), since they have thicker neoprene on the core (thicker will keep you warmer, but is less flexible so its a trade off between warmth and "feel"). Go with 2) if you can deal with the cold but prefer more flexibility.

4) isn't suitable for swimming, its more a surf suit.

The hardest thing to get right when buying online is size. I measure between Med and XXL, depending on brand. So check the returns policy if buying online.
