Re: Female Gis

Ashley, I'm studying the graphics on the Century website to see if I can figure out where the shaping is and I can't. Normally one would see shaping darts at bust and waist or a princess type seam but looking at both black and white versions I can't see any - if they shape ONLY at side seams I'd say for those of us with real curves, not adequate.
Even the quite lovely Bujin womens gi top seemed to have been made with a slender and young Japanese woman in mind: the bust dart points to where someone about 20 years old might have her fullest point relative to shoulder/waist length and fitted to about an A-B cup size. Not very helpful for a full busted or mature woman.
