Track Suits

Hi Ladies!

Do not know if someone has already posted this thread or not, but I need some advice on track suits!

I reallllllyyyy like Dainese suits, but they only have one style for sale on their website and I am not fond of the style. They used to have the Dainese Yu womens tracksuit that I really like, but I guess they took it off the market?

Alpinestar I hear is pretty good. But are those the only two really good brands? It seems like whenever I am on Dainese, Alpinestars, or any other good gear website there are not many options for women's track suits, or for gear in general (which kinda sucks and is frustrating).

I am doing my first track day on the 30th and of course I will be renting a suit, but I would really like to start getting in to it and I kind of would like my own suit instead of renting suits...the idea of other peoples sweat grosses me out.

How does the womens suit fit your figure? I remember seeing somewhere that you didn't like the way the mens suit made your butt look.

Re: Track Suits

The komodo she is wearing is a mens suit. I have nothing against a men's suit, but I wear a 38-40 womens suit I don't think they make a mans that small.

Sry, just figured I'd throw it out there for you.

You could have vanson custom make you one. their leathers are built like a brick shithouse.

Oh no don't apologize the video was very helpful, thank you.

I tried on one of my friends Dainese suits and it fit great. I really like it, but I think I am going to wait till next year, like January, when they come out with their other design to look into purchasing it. I will probably purchase a suit and start getting into track days then maybe later on in my life get a custom one made. There is a great lady out here in Texas that makes custom suits. She does a great job and has tailored my jackets and my boyfriends suit. Thank you for the advice and the video.
