They'll look just as good?! Not even wanting a "perfect" fit, most mens riding pants are not going to cut it for most women. There's way too much length (for most women), so now you're all baggy and saggy near the bottom. Too high of a rise (area from crotch to belly button), which can be very uncomfortable. Nothing worse than having a waistline belt right up under your watermellons. And for women like me, in order to get enough material for the hips and thighs, the waistline ends up being huge and gaping. Sure, you can cinch it up with the velcro, but they look like ridiculous clown pants. You can say they're just as safe or whatever, but no way (unless your frame is built like a man's) will they "look just as good".CNF2002 wrote:Just looking at my pants, with all their little zippers and velcro straps, etc...I dont see why there would be much difference between womens and mens riding pants, unless you are looking for a perfect-size-fit pant. Go with the ones that adjust, they can look just as good.
Good for you. I mentioned the things that I notice when I've tried to work with men's pants. So apparently you know much more about this than me. I'll stand down, so you can tell me how it is for most women - I'll just speak for myself from now on.CNF2002 wrote:Loonette, thats possible...but I see women in mens pants all the time. They say it doesnt fit, but believe me most people wouldnt notice.
Unless you've seen me in men's riding pants, you have no idea. But once again, you claim to know, so I'm done with this topic. I'm not going to debate the fit of clothes or how they look on me with some guy in the Ladies' Lounge.CNF2002 wrote:LOL...what I meant was that no one would really notice if your riding pants didn't fit perfectly.
