depends on how long your diving for.
if your diving for a few days worth then go for a full thin wet suite, cant remember the exact thickness, i believe it's 3mm. Reason is that you soon loose a lot of your body heat through in water after a few dives.
if its just a couple or odd dives then a shortie is fine.

I took a full wetsuite Egypt in the peak summer, and glad i did, as after a couple of days i soon felt the chill after a few days. I'd also recommend getting a thin rash vest with the full wetsuite, but downside is that you soon get warm when getting ready.

Hope this helps
