Recommend me up.. I can't find any that will fit around my enormous calf muscles!

I mean huntress

nigglewiggle Thu 02-Dec-10 12:47:03

I am quite ample-of-calf and Town and country fit me. grin

MrsJohnDeere Thu 02-Dec-10 12:54:03

Another vote for Huntress.

ICouldHaveWrittenThis Thu 02-Dec-10 13:29:37

it's ridiculous, they're bloody enormous blush

It's the one part of me that isn't fat as well hmm it's just all muscle grin

Will take a look at the suggestions, thanks

Another Hunteress wearer here!

How generous are the huntress wellies? My mum is around a size 18/20 and wanted wellies, would these likely fit her should I order her some?

I am huge of calf and the only boot I can find to fit are WOOFWEAR Long Boot. They have a rubber moulded foot/ankle and a fabric calf with side gusset and easy closing side fastenings. I have worn them in the snow and not felt close to slipping. They are fleece lined and extremely warm and snug. I am really please with them although they cost me £45.00!!
I have never managed to get Hunters anywhere near on!!

ICouldHaveWrittenThis Thu 02-Dec-10 14:20:20

Hmm... I think I need to measure my calf and see exactly how ginormous they need to be, and then get other MNers to confirm welly circumference grin

I also have big calves though they are getting smaller and need new wellies. Is it possible to buy them on line. Mind you, the delivery van probably wouldn't get through as we have tonnes of snow and are snowed in. It has been snowing for hours.

I found the Huntress wellies too flappy and unflattering on my large-ish calves. The neoprene lined Hunters are wider than the standard ones and fit me very comfortably even with ski socks and jeans tucked in

Decathlon Inverness - will link in a minute

5GoldenFimbos Thu 02-Dec-10 14:41:17

here they also come in a variety of colours.

tartiflette Thu 02-Dec-10 14:46:35

Some of the Hunters claim to be adjustable at the top - can anyone confirm whether they're any good for the large of calf?

tartiflette - you have made me very hungry as your namesake is my favourite meal during ski trips!! I digress but see my earlier post for info on Hunters and large calves

gailforce1 Thu 02-Dec-10 14:51:22

Icouldhavewrittenthis calf measurement 17" add in long socks, thermal long johns and tucked in trousers make that, gulp, 18"!
Have just told DP abouth this and he says since I obviously don't have anything better to do I am to start on the Christmas cards - immediately!!

tartiflette Thu 02-Dec-10 15:02:50

tulpe I know - YUM. Not good for the calves though wink

tulpe Thu 02-Dec-10 15:09:58

no, nor the ass and thighs!

matildarosepink Thu 02-Dec-10 15:15:01

How about rigger boots if you want something warm/waterproof/grippy? Much better than wellies in so many ways...

Have a look at [[ this]] recommendation by India Knight (ooh, I love that woman..)

matildarosepink Thu 02-Dec-10 15:15:34

Sorry, disastrous attempt to post a link above, but hopefully you can get it to make sense!

InvaderZim Thu 02-Dec-10 15:22:02

I love my mid-calf Muckboot brand boots, and as an added bonus, they're warm.

(Yes, large of calf, nothing else fits, even the Hunter ones. sigh)
