    Hi Ladies!

    I decided it was time to get a one piece suit and stop zipping together my jacket/pants (especially since the pants are somewhat tight :cry: ) but as I did my research I found that while all the suits had shoulder, elbow and knee padding very few of them had hip and coccyx padding. Dianese has a newer suit, the Veloster, with added hip padding but no perforated leather, for example, and the A* suit sizing puts the height out of my range for my size. I was wondering what kind of work around have any of you done to add this, other than go to a custom suit which most often would add them if I ask. I found the Forcefield brand of armored shorts and pants but I don't know anybody who has them but I'm sure I could fit them under a suit. Also I presume they are men's or unisex sized.

    Thanks in advance!

    Bohn shorts

    I have worn the Bohn Bodyguard Adventure Armored Shorts for several years and love them - they cost around $80 these days.

    Believe in protective shorts and use them. Just pick one that best fits under the suit yet provides you with the level/area of protection you feel is best. STG has a good return policy that may be beneficial.

    Agreed,

    I wasn't at all sore from my get off.. was only going 65 but I guess I did about 4 cartwheels. Only thing that hurt was my right hand from holding on and trying to save it all the way to the end... got slammed pretty hard and caught under my lever guard...

    Your not down till your down!!!! :lmao:
