A Body protector for the more busty lady?

 I have a tiny petite frame but i am slightly larger in the bust area that most so find body protectors incredibly uncomfortable 

 

can anyone tell me of  one that i can actually breathe in?

Re: A Body protector for the more busty lady?

I know the problem, I've just bought a racesafe one, hoping it would be better, but still finding it uncomfortable. I'm hoping I'll get used to it in time.

Apparantly the Kan teq ones are supposed to fit women better, but they're out of my price range!

This made me actually snort!

 

Update on the racesafe, it does seem to be getting easier to ride in and more comfortable with use, fits better if you squash the offending parts upwards instead of down, lol!

 

I have considered motorbike back protectors too - along the same thought as you, if I land on my front I'll bounce!    Have been riding without for a few years now, but recently had a fall and so badly bruised  my pelvis, I initially thought I'd broken it. Thats why I got a body protector; the racesafe one because they're they're more flexible.

I have an airowear ladies fit one, and it moulds to you quite quickly and I never ride without one so it must be comfy...   not overly exp either, i think it was under £130.

 I have a racesafe one. It does take a little while to mould to your body shape, but once thats done they are brill. Could try wearing it around the house to improve the fit.

I'm a 38DD and I wear a racesafe body protector with an XL tabbard over the top.  It does make me look a bit like the Mitchelin Man but at least I'll be protected if I make an artistic dismount!  The only thing is, I find body protectors incredibly hot - I get warm quite easily anyway.  Has anyone tried wearing one with nothing underneath?  I am seriously thinking about it!

Yes I have and I have one thing to say  -  chaffing! Lol, I now wear a specialist compression running vest underneath which is specially designed to actually keep you coolby pulling ai through it. Brilliant for hot days it really works and because its a compression vest it keeps your boobs firmly in place so no bounce when you trot!

I use a racesafe and i'm big busted and i find it the most comfortable bodyprotector i have ever used. I wont go back to a normal rigid body bodyprotector now that i have used one as i prefer the flexibility of the racesafe..
