A decent Musto/Henri Lloyd type jacket/trouser combo should more than suffice and would be far more flattering.

The craft is a somewhat wet ride and prone to capsizing and general unstableness one way or another your likely going in the water

OK, how about a shorty wetsuit (much easier to get on and possibly more flattering) and a dinghy splash top that doesn't have the neoprene neck collar?

Lomo wetsuits build to size, I think.

Hi HDAV, have you been on our "other" forum recently? :-)

It looks like you've solved this one but my wife is a "well upholstered" girl and has had no problem sourcing one on either ebay or other online sites. She has gone for the cag top solution as well, just helps keeps the wind off.

You might find that neoprene trousers or dry trousers in men's XL or XXL might be a better bet, worn with a cag.

Wetsuit Outlet are excellent with returns, and their website shows which sizes they have in stock. The cost of posting stuff back is probably less than traipsing round shops looking for something suitable, so it's definitely worth trying a couple of different options.

Agree. Out of choice rather than size I wear wetsuit trousers, beach type trainers and a waterproof jacket for Sibbing.

Wetsuit outfit were very efficient with sending a second larger trouser pair and refunding the returned ones as I upsized to avoid permananet numbness!
