Where can I buy ski pants/sallopettes if I'm quite fat?
I'm on the plump-side and now have men's salopettes. Don't dismiss them out of hand. They fit, their comfortable and you can't tell any difference. The only think is they were too long and I had to turn them up. Be comfortable!
Mountain Warehouse seem to be cut for people with shapely figures. Even at my tiniest Decathlon didn't work for me because I have a big difference between waist and hips but Mountain Warehouse leaves space for me to have an enormous mountain lunch breathe.
Im bigger than you and I got some from mountain warehouse and they were a much better fit than others I tried. They mirrored my normal size if you know what I mean. They were good and warm, we were in down to -12 and I was as warm as toast.
Someone mentioned upthread white rock ski pants.. 8 years ago when I first went skiing at size 12-14 (2 stone lighter than now) I had to buy white rock size 16 and they were small.. I think their sizes not too generous! I buy Dare2be sallopettes.. about £25 off eBay new with tags. I've got 12, 14,16 and 18! . I'm currently a size 16 but just went away skiing in my 18's (despite my best efforts to diet! I also find men's ski jackets much better for me at the moment than women's. I buy a men's small. Generally, I find all women's 'sportswear' comes up small.
