I am new here to netrider So hi I was wondering if any of the women out there could help me. I am currently getting my gear together for when I start learning to ride. So far have my helmet, boots, jacket, am about to buy gloves but I cannot find any bike pants that fit ANYWHERE! I am 5'5", 69kgs and am pear shaped (IE: weight around hips/thighs/bum IE: I have CURVES *SHOCK HORROR!*) and am normally a size 12-14 for pants/skirts. Im in Mildura and only have one main motorcycle store here which doesn't have a huge range so can't try on heaps of diff styles/types etc, so hard! This last weekend at Peter Stevens Adelaide I've tried on: RST Womens Textile Pants (& another brand of textile pants but had same probs as outlined next) - Tried on size 12 & 14, couldn't get either past my thighs. As degrading as it was I tried on a 16. Could get these on, but then couldn't get the zip done up! Wasn't any 18's for me to try either, but WTF is with making sizing so small?! Draggin Minx & Regular Jeans - As is the rediculous style of Draggins, all are hipster (stupid much for motorbike pants!?) I try on 12, too small. I try on 14, too big and because they are hipsters and made for "model shaped" stick figure women with flat arses (IE: those types in the adverts for Draggins) they slide halfway down my bum by the time I sit down/bend over and show off a lovely plumbers crack! Hornee Womens High Rise - So I try these on out of desperation despite obv being poorer in quality than the Draggins (thinner denim & poss kevlar?) because they are high rise and whilst 14's didn't fit too bad, the rise is SO high it comes just about under my boobs and gapes everwhere at the top because of the size i need to fit my bum/thighs! So exasperated! Just about convinced Im just not meant to be a bike rider at this stage... Is anyone else as sick as me of jean/pant manufacturers (not just talking about motorcycle pants either, I have the same prob with regular jeans) producing for the tiny percentage of super skinny women with no curves as opposed to the "australian average" sized women of 14? If anyone is a similar height/weight/shape to me I would be very interested to hear what you've found works. At this stage I will either have to look into something custom made or resort to kevlar leggings under regular jeans if even those fit properly!
