    Pretty In Plus Size

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    For years now, I have been very frustrated with the selection of plus sized jerseys; cycling catalogs arrive in the mail with regularity, sporting beautiful, colorful jerseys on the front, and without fail, those jerseys are never, ever,ever offered in plus size. I have to content myself with solid colors or some frousy floral print. Thank you TE for finally throwing the fat ladies a bone! My Doyenne "Gaia" (http://www.teamestrogen.com/collecti...ducts/do-9110p) jersey just arrived, and I am thrilled with it! So thrilled, I'm going to order the Mandala.
    Off to show my pretty new jersey to the fit fatties forum...

    Dh is talking retirement in 5 years; need to stock up on these these things now! Besides, businesses that realize my money is as green as a skinny person's (you'd be surprised how many don't!) should be supported.

    It is pretty insane that I wear a S/M in street clothes but need a large in bike jerseys. Sometimes for regular sleeveless shirts I have to go down to XS but for workout/cycling tank tops I'm more likely to need XL. This really is just blindness on the part of the manufacturers -- there are obviously plenty of active people out there who are not slim and trim.

    - Red hardtail 26" aluminum mountain bike, Bontrager Evoke WSD saddle
    - Royal blue 2018 aluminum gravel bike, Rivet Pearl saddle

    Gone but not forgotten:
    - Silver 2003 aluminum road bike
    - Two awesome worn out Juliana saddles

    That brings to mind the Barre studio I used to go to that sold tank tops emblazoned with the words: Such and such Barre studio made me this way . The largest size available was a medium. And it didn't fit the medium sized ladies in the class (who looked fabulous to me...)

    NY, I think this speaks to the vanity sizing in certain clothing lines and the unrealistic sizing in cycling clothes!
