    check for brands with f-scale (rather than a-scale) sizing charts. bear in mind, however, that there's less standardization (apparently) in women's gi sizing.

    the f sized gis are actually cut for... girls.

    the women i've trained with seem most likely to have atamas, fwiw, and they all seem to really like the fit.

    Atama makes f-cut? Where do I get those?

    On the Atama for PWV's webpage. Like myself, you were probably afraid to click because it said "For Women Only." I called my neighbor over and had her hit the mouse button for me...

    I vote for the Kyra Gracie model, which is here:

    P.S. looks like she's a F-3. I have 3 Atama Gi's myself (Gold, Single, and Ultralight) and they do shrink to some extent with hot water washing and drying, but more proportionately than other Gi's I have owned.

    ...are you calling Syberia fat?
    In summation your argument denotes a lack of intellectual honesty on your part. It is my contention that this matter would best be solved with fisticuffs. I believe I will be victorious in this regard.

So (and I'm lookin' your way girls), does anyone on here have an insight as to what size gi I should buy a girl who is

    1) 5'4" tall

    2) 124lbs

    3) hot.

    Also, where should I order online? I've been buying from my instructor, but I don't want to use him for my gift.

    Oh and on a less important note, any color suggestions? She hates purple. :p

    P.S. Is this like the gueyest thread to ever exist or what?

    Hot? Pictures or it didn't happen.
