New shower piping

Redoing a shower - I want a reg shower overhead shower hand shower and body sprays- I have a divertir to handle first three and want to pipe to the other side with a diverter for body sprays - current pipe out of floor is 3/4 inch scaled down to 1/2 inch pipe
Will 1/2 inch be enough pressure or should I scale up to 3/4 inch
Will only be running body sprays when other sprays off

I would use one mixer (hot/cold) and two or 3 diverters to turn on/off the individual heads. That way everything will run at the same temperature.

If I had my way, I'd use a 2-way diverter for the shower/rain head, and two single diverters for the body sprays and handheld. It can get complicates to use, with that many, but you definitely have options.

As for plumbing, I'd use 3/4" feeds into the mixer and from the mixer to diverters, but then 1/2" to each head. Your pressure and flow rate will determine how much pressure you have with multiple heads at the same time.
