Ladies--need help

Amazingly, I've become obsessed with gear. Particuarly those with kevlar knees. Inexpensive, used girl gear--in the right size--is proving difficult to find on EBay. I'm afraid that if I buy used guy pants, the knee pads won't fall in the right position. Any experience with this? If so, are there any particular brands that translate well for us?

Thanks!

My both sets of leathers are men's.
One piece is Teknic US38, which is a little big and long.
But when I bent my knees (on the bike), knee pads seemed to fall on the right spots.
Two piece is Alpinestars GPU US36, which fits me almost perfect.
Either way, it's not going to fit you perfectly.
Unless they are design for women or customed, you have to give up one or two things (for me, I'll always have saggy in my leathers ).
If you have anymore questions, just let me know.

Mens leathers have saggy butts too. Cuz they are meant for leaning forward.
A possibility for you ladies is to take your leathers to a boot shop for alterations. There is one on College St. in South Houston that is very reasonable and does excellent work.(I can get more details if ya want). A ridin' buddy took his leathers there to have the leg length adjusted so the knee pads were in the right place and they done good.
Another posibility would be to get bigger butts. Ohh did I say that. Sorry J/K

FWIW, womens gear has come a long ways in the last year or so, and we're seeing new stuff almost everyday.

SuzAnne works with a lot of ladies helping them get properly fitted in good quality gear. If you need some help, come by and she can take some measurements and make some recommendations.
