It can be extremely difficult to find an off the rack 2 piece leather suit that fits, let alone a 1 piece.
Most dealers can't afford to stock a full size run of women's suits, so it's even harder for them to justify stocking full size runs. It's a catch 22, how do we buy more of them when there's not enough to try on in some dealerships?
But I know you're out there. I've compiled a list of off the rack Women's race suits that are currently on the market, from some of my favorite manufacturers who continue to devote full lines of protective gear for women. I've listed these in alphabetical order, by brand.
Dainese, AlpineStars and GiMoto all offer 2 piece leather suits that will zip together to create a 1 piece but I'm excluding them from this list. If you want to know what 2 piece options exist, just visit the manufacturer website.
I guess my next bit of homework is to make a list of 2 piece leather recommendations....
If I missed any suits, Please post a comment and let us know what you have and where you bought it!

Stella Julie MSRP $799 Colors: Black Revzilla.com The darker black areas are stretchy panels. A friend of mine has this suit and something that she didn't expect is the freedom of movement um, down around the groin. The panels that appear darker black in the photo above are stretchy. So when you're wearing the suit, the lower half doesn't feel as restricted as in a regular pair of leather pants. If you're riding a sportbike, I can see how this would help make the suit feel more comfortable, particularly during a track day.
