Thanks, I came across that site (and the SA forum). Those sizes look to be only up to 14, which isn't useful for me but may be to others, thanks for posting it.

I am having some luck looking at rainproof/warm gear that isn't labeled for sailing, per a suggestion I read elsewhere. For example, bibs for snowboarding or skiing are to be had in women's plus sizes, as are some wet suits (if one wanted to wear one under something).

Granted these are not true "foul weather gear", but if the weather is at all foul, we wouldn't be heading out for a sail around the bay. The prices come down if the word "sailing" isn't in front of the tag, I've noticed.

Also Grunder's seems to make actual foul weather gear that may fix, with some leg shortening.

Thanks for the replies.
