Re: Boat clothing for the plus sized woman

My biggest problem is finding foul weather wear. Most mfg's make them only up to about a size 14 for women. Men's sizes go larger of course, but don't work because the shoulders are too wide, the sleeves are too long and the hips are too narrow to work on a woman's body. Finding shorts, shirts, swimwear, wind breakers, and fleece is possible though not easy from places like Land's End and Columbia.
