I've been a wader for years...can't say that I'm the best for women though. Just ask my wife.

Orvis advertises that their waders are designed for women:

Quote from their web site: "Over the years, the most common feedback we've received from female anglers is that we haven't offered chest waders that were truly designed for women. Until now. After taking input and suggestions from a large number of female anglers, we started over from scratch and designed a wader built specifically for women. Never again will you have to borrow a pair of waders. We have your size".

My wife uses the old Orvis Endura bootfoots and Orvis Silver labels with a Chota boot. Because they fit her foot, she is pretty petite but has big feet. DON'T buy cheap waders for her, if she stays dry, warm, and comfortable she will enjoy fishing a lot more, the same for all of us. Her biggest complaint about women specific fly gear are the goofy colors the manufacturers "think" that women want.

I have the L.L. Bean Emerger 2 waders. They are super durable and since the fit is on the larger side, you can wear lots of layers for Winter Steelhead or whatever.

Howdy!
It's my first time visiting over here with the girls and I'm a bit hesitant about making fashion comments......
...but range of motion is most important in my professional judgement.
(I'm assuming they don't leak.)
Having a little room for some fleece is good too.
A close second consideration.....color.
If you want to sneak up on them......

Choose drab.
You can always wear something flashy underneath....
Simms G3s are guide tested. They will last many years, and you can get any size combo you need. But.....go get fitted if at all possible. Then pick your foot up and put it on the chair.... it shouldn't bind at the knee.
Have fun out there.

Jim

My wife got a new pair of waders last year. We visited a bunch of places and she tried in a lot of waders. She bought the Orvis Silver Sonic women's waders. The fit was good and she claimed they dealt with the "chest" the best. Her biggest complaint about other waders was the way they don't account for women having a chest. Honestly I don't get it, but she does and that was a big deal to her.
