Female Uniform

#7
Uniform will only fit if everyone's bodies are the same proportions as the clothes and the clothing stores give you the right sized kit.

Lets face it - it ain't going to happen any time soon.

The next stage of the PCS development is to produce specific female fit clothing to make for a more comfortable design that takes account of "the female form".




The above suggestions have been noted and will be looked into in detail (god I hate my job!).

saw something in Soldier magazine that we were on the case with female-fit MTP when it rolls out nationwide...
And for some of them it will be 'nationwide' :D boom boom.

Tailoring of uniforms hasn't really occured since the old Working Dress was killed off has it?

I remember one bloke getting his Combat Jacket Lighweight tailored (short sleeve order, and a bit of a dart taken in on the back) but he looked a complete prat, and we just abused him for it.

Back in the day, they did have "female" lightweights. They had a zip that went up the side of the hip and the crotch to waist measurement was deeper than men's lightweights. There weren't any front pockets, a map pocket on the right leg and IIRC didn't have any back pockets either. I had a friend who was one of the last people to be issued them (late 80's).

Glad to see we are reinventing the wheel then.

'cadet uniforms'? Do you mean children's ones? Or RMAS blues- coz we already do those. Personally, I reckon that if we're going to be wearing barrack dress of some description in camp, they should leave it as that- combat PJs are comfortably baggy, and it's not worth the logistical faff to have different stuff for fembots when it invariably gets shredded. Body army and helmet design, however...
