Race Gear???

Ok yall I am not having much luck with the race gear... being a women sucks at times.. I went to cycle gear and tried some stuff on. I got my boots covered as I finally found a pair that were only a size to big and ordering a size smaller ... But my problem is finding a place that carries smaller than a 40 1 or 2 piece leather suits so i can try them on and what would yall recomend for gloves... I tried on a pair of small alpinestars and could almost fit 2 fingers into one of the fingers thats how wide they were..... Please help me out if yall have any ideas of places to go or types of gloves and such...

Thanks

I think you must have tried on a mens 40! I have a womens Teknic two piece that is a 10! If you come down this way you are more that welcome to try mine on!

You never going to find perfect fit leathers, unless custom made or alter them later.
I have 38 one piece leathers that length are too long, waist too big and my 's always saggy.
Try to find women's gear if you can afford it.

I got these in small.
They are fantastic gloves.
