Life Jackets ...

Hello,

I was just wondering if anyone could advise me about Life Jackets? All the Life Jackets I have tried on are extremely uncomfortable, when they are fastened they sit right across the middle of my boobs.

Are there any around that are perhaps a little big longer?

life jackets

Easy one this ? .............. Fit a set of Thigh Straps they will hold your jacket in place.

I am afraid that will not solve the problem, it only makes it worse. The problem is the position of the bottom strap crushing my boobs!

I used to waterski and I found waterskiing life jackets fit better than regular ones.

Hi Willowkis. Yes, I understand your dilemma. I had the same problem - you feel like a human accordian. Unfortunately, I can't recommend a lifejacket to you because I haven't needed one for several years. In addition, I live in Canada and we probably don't have the same ones as you do over there. Sorry!

Hello Deana,

At least it is comforting to know there is someone on here who fully understands my problem.

I will have to keep on searching
