I haven't been able to break the 2.5 pound barrier myself.

Gives me something to strive for.

Thank goodness the Germans realize women come in more than one shape/size.
It's Germany, and beer isn't the only good thing made there.

Try finding GOOD fat girl gear


The fat guy gear is bigger in the gut and waist but that's no help when trying to stuff a pair of big titties in there.

Roflol......my wife has the same problem.....not quite 190 (like 175) but she can't find a jacket that will come close to zipping up, unless the waist is absolutely huge....

If the budget can handle it, Aerostitch or Vanson makes-to-order, or just send to a tailor or good tack shop.

Which shop is it, if you don't mind me asking? I've had less that stellar service from one of the leather/luggage shops in the area.

<-- Has repaired her own textile stuff, but I would not recommend it unless you really know garment construction. The tailor the bike shop sent me to was expensive and the repairs they wanted to do would have left me with no armor in the damaged areas.

I ordered some Kevlar thread and went to town and now have a fully functional jacket. Grey with big ugly black patches, but no more holes or abrasion spots exposed, and everything is stitched properly. Took ma several hours and I had to open up the sleeves completely. PITA, but cheap.

I tried for years to find something off-the-shelf that would fit me pants-wise. (32x34) I eventually gave up and got some custom Motoport Kevlar jeans.
