Which brandsoffer ladies cycling wear REALLY cut for women?

Postby fumbi » Thu Jan 17, 2013 5:02 pm

Hi everyone
The other day I tried on a few Altura ladies cylcing jackets just to find they are cut pretty much straight down, not for women at all. I am (sort of) normally shaped and size 14. Do you know any brands that really do cut for women?
Thanks!

I've had luck with jaggad tops (not bottoms though as I'm too...unskinny!!), sugoi tops and bottoms, and pearl Izumi bottoms (not tried tops). Jaggad has a good online clearance store. I'm a fan of their long sleeve jackets. I'm a 16 and hippy and they are a great cut.

My partner advises Sugoi for bottoms and Castelli for tops.

Hope it helps.

Rapha tops are good but their knicks are great.
I like Jaggad too - no elastic on the hems of the jersey to cut you in half.
DHB knicks are good for training.

I just bought a couple of jaggad tops and really like them. Bottoms I use my old Nettis, they seem to last and last...
