Plus Size Women’s Motorcycle Gear
Welcome to my page of Plus Size Gear options for women who ride motorcycles. This will be a work in progress but I’ve decided to put together my favorites which also include gear that I’ve been able to size for women in person while working in the RevZilla Philadelphia Showroom. Please note that these options are all Women’s Specific Gear.
what does this mean?
Generally speaking, the definition of Plus Sizes in Fashion is typically above a US 14. Since “average” women’s clothes sizes are supposedly 4-14, anything over 14, so 16-20+ is typically defined as Plus Size.
However, if you are a woman, you know that these definitions sometimes don’t mean anything at all. In the fashion world, there are finally lots of cool, stylish and beautiful clothes all the way up to 26-28? From what I can tell, that took a really, really long time to get to this point and I’m sure that there is still much more to go.
In the motorcycle world, it’s most definitely behind. I wish I had a plethora of options to share, but as of the creation of this page (September 2020), these are the only options I have been able to find while working at RevZilla. I hope they help and please let me know if you have any questions on fitment or sizing.
On this page, I’m going to recommend my very favorites and the best options that I’ve personally been able to fit while working in this industry over the past decade. If you have any other suggestions, please let me know!
JACKETS - SUMMER/SPRING
These will offer big mesh panels and primary comfort in the Summer. When you have a mesh outer, you know that wearing a liner will help, but it will never be ideal as a true Winter jacket, because the mesh shell can’t do any wind blocking the way that a waterproof shell or rain jacket on top can.
JEANS / LEGGINGS
This is a brand new category, especially for plus sizes. Unfortunately you’ll still only see sizes up to a 18-20.
