Neoprenes are tight fitting in the first place and water pressure keeps them that way.
Some are and some aren't but isn't that obvious to most??? Even tighter neoprene waders will fill should you try and swim into the current or get pushed into that orientation.
Some folks wear tight jeans but others opt for jeans that fit?? I suppose it's all personal choice!
My reply was based on years of teaching river and ocean diving and rescue as well as being safety divers for kayak and canoe races as well as being on several drowning recovery teams.
