Resources for Women’s Motorcycle Clothing & Apparel
Here’s a list of resources for clothing and apparel that have been designed and manufactured specifically for women, in women’s sizes.
These are manufacturers and retailers of women-specific sizes – not “unisex” sizes. Use caution, because many manufacturers do not use women-specific sizing, which may result in a poor fit; even when companies say they have women-specific sizing, they may mean small, medium or large, but hopefully the patterns are at least cut for women. Bottom line — be careful and ask questions!

wBW Visitor Recommendations: wBW Visitor “M.” writes: “I recently bought my leather jacket from Foxcreek Leather. The jacket fits like it was made for me. I can’t say enough about the quality of the jacket. It is American made and guaranteed for life, which I know is important to a lot of motorcycle riders. Shipping was free since I chose to let it come ground. This jacket fits me perfectly. They are willing to do whatever it takes for their customers and they will custom fit too” wBW Visitor “S.Y.” suggests She-Rides Active Wear as a good source for boots, gloves, jackets, pants and more.
