You can always take off the top of a farmer john 7mm to lighten the
insulation but you can't get warmer if you chill on a 5 or 3mm it
seems.  Deeper water maybe be substantially cooler.

However, in Cayman last week, the top 10' was at 86+F, while to 82-84F to
120' over 27 dives.  Amazingly stable but for the water cooking at the surface.
