    Default Ladies foulies for the shorter, bigger woman?

    I was wondering if anyone know where I can get saloppettes in size 16/18 and for a short lady (about 5 foot)?

    Following this one: my wife is looking for a new set of waterproof salopettes and she is similarly proportioned.

    We found her last set as the largest Musto set available at the time. I’m surprised that they don’t make them a couple of sizes larger too or is the marine clothing industry trying to deny those that aren’t stick thin of a perfectly good pastime?

    Good shout. The problem is the leg length. Too long and they become a trip hazard.

    The same problem as with shorter bigger men!
    I have to buy XXL and shorten the legs.
    Tip - I cut a section out of the legs about half way up my shin.
    Then I don't have to do any tarting around with the leg bottoms (zips, velcro, etc).

    I suffer from little legs. I tell everybody I wore them down when mountaineering

    I use Scottish Mountain Gear (click for URL) for all my alterations as they can do Gortex and you keep the Gortex warranty.
