Yaayyyyy, actually remembered how to sign in. It’s been literally years since I’ve had to do that.
What’s your style and credit card limit? Do you have a particular brand in mind? If you want to try gear on before you commit to buying anything, then your London choices are quite limited. The Dainese store by The Bike Shed has got a good reputation, but that is reliant on being quite tall and tiny waisted (I’m not…). Urban Nomads in Ruislip carry a really good Held selection for ladies which might suit you. The jackets I tried on fitted my torso well but were too short in the arms for me.
Outside of London and a good excuse for a shortish ride out there’s Sportsbikeshop, Get Geared and On Yer Bike. All of them carry a reasonable range in store and you can check availability before you go.
I’m Ms Average height wise. In terms of bmi and leg length, I’m kinda challenged. Out of all the brands I’ve tried, Spidi Lady has fitted me the best. Unfortunately, trying to find a stockist is nigh on impossible, especially in London. Infinity and Helmet City carry some stock and are willing to order stuff in if it’s not in store. As The Mr has said, fc moto have an extensive online laydee section and although they’re not particularly cheap, the sizing guides are spot on. Another option for online shopping is Moto Central, which is UK based.
Oh, I forgot about P&H. They’ve got some small Dainese suits on ebay at the moment that are super cheap
