Re: Boat clothing for the plus sized woman

Hi

I am a outdoor clothing manufacturer and it seems there is a definite need for plus sized sailing wear. If I can get some interest I will investigate a range from 2xl - 5xl to sell from an online store. There is a number of possibilites.
Get back to me with your thoughts.

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.

Re: Boat clothing for the plus sized woman

I don't have any helpful suggestions, just a sympathetic anecdote to share. When I lived in Hawaii, I went to the Goodwill to find some aloha shirts. They had 2 huge racks of the most beautiful aloha shirts that you've ever seen. Many were new with the tags on. Many came from high end stores and had cost over $75.00 new. All of them looked like they'd been washed once, max, and they were $2.00.
All but a dozen of them were size S or M. I'm a XXL. They had one. It was about the only ugly one there.

Re: Boat clothing for the plus sized woman

I know this is an old thread, however, I thought I would post this clothing site. They don't have specifically sailing rain gear, they do however have some really nice rain gear for plus sizes. On the expensive side, but good quality. They also have some nice casual resort style clothing for the plus size.
