Pearl Izumi jerseys are the only ones that fit
on July 3, 2012
I wanted to write this review for a Pearl Izumi jersey because I know a lot of women like myself who have large chests (mine is 42") and it's difficult to find a bike jersey that will fit properly. For reference, I'm 5'3" and 190. I buy a lot of Pearl Izumi brand clothing (cycle shoes, bike shorts) and have had great luck with them. I find that Pearl is pretty sturdy as well as stylish and comfortable.
I purchased this particular jersey in XX-Large and found that it fits great. I tried the XL which was just a bit too small and pulled across the chest. The XX-Large, however, fit fantastic and I have plenty of give for moving the arms around and so forth. I bought the safety orange mainly for visibility purposes but it actually looks so great in reality that it's become my favorite jersey to wear. This is a case where the picture doesn't do it justice.
I've also purchased other XXL Pearl Izumi jerseys and they all fit as perfectly as this one did. That means that the sizes are consistent across the board with Pearl which is good to know.
