I am sure there was a thread on this recently but for the life of me I can't find it.
I'm a size 16 but with large breasts and I'm struggling to find a ski jacket. Tried Decathalon but ladies' ski wear only goes up to XL and it's too tight across the chest. I've had a scout around the internet but everything seems to be very fitted and stop at about a 14/16.
Please can anyone suggest somewhere? Don't want to pay £££££ as it's unlikely I'll wear it again soon, so budget approx £120.
Trespass go up to twenty something I think but I've never really rated them for extreme cold. I have a similar problem with my boobs but find quite a few brands will go up to 18-20 and it's just that shops don't stock those sizes because larger ladies aren't supposed to enjoy outdoor activities. TKMaxx do xl sizes but they can vary in the boobular area. I have an eider in size 18 which fits my boobs and I can wear a jumper underneath and they did go up to a 20. It's quite expensive but great for the cold weather and I wear it all the time not just for snow sports.
Oh, fab, thank you! I will take a look at Trespass.
So annoying that it's so hard to buy fitness stuff which is larger than a 14 and not skin tight. I tried to buy a high-vis for running last year and ended up having to get a man's one as the women's ones were all fitted and I needed to be able to wear a layer under it as well as my key/phone belt.
I've got a dare2be women's jacket which fits a 40G size 16/18 top it was in their largest size I even bought it the resort and it was £65. I do only wear 2-3skinny layers under it as it's warm but I'd struggle with a bulky fleece - I did wear it with a back protector though so it's not v.tight.
