My wife deserved a pair of QUALITY waders ... introduced her to fly fishing about six years ago ... she wants to go again and again ... as much as I do! These waders have NO SEWN SEAM to leak from extended usage! You cannot go wrong with ORVIS!!!!!
At last -

I have been looking for waders to fit a woman with curves and small feet. This wader fits perfectly. At last I am comfortable while fishing. These waders allow for easy movement and excellent coverage.
Didn't work for me, satisfaction not achieved -

I'm 5'5", 135 lbs. Shoe size 7.5-8. Average build. I do not possess model-long legs. I do fish hard, and I'm willing to work for it. Long walks along the railroad tracks on the Upper Sacramento. Down to the Conservancy waters on the McCloud and on the Wigwam outside of Fernie, BC. I climb over boulders and logs and stuff. The mediums were too short in the legs. They bound in the crotch crossing fences and like that. The medium talls (or longs-or whatever) I got after that were way too big in the foot. I couldn't even fit them in my boots. The guy I talked to (of course, it was a guy) said that the foot size for medium tall waders is size 10. Great, I'm size 8. Average for my height and weight. Foot size, gentlemen, is one of the specifications you should let people know before they buy. He also said I'd had them too long and there was nothing he could do. Really, nothing? How about, when you revisit the sizing issue you'll let me know? So thanks for trying to make waders specifically for women. I really do appreciate the effort, and other women anglers will too, But you might have to check in with a few more size women before you declare victory. I'm guessing some women reviewers are being nice just because you tried.
Great fit for women -

Finally, I found waders that are actually designed to fit women perfectly.

Thank you, Orvis, for taking the time to make a product that fits women. I could feel the difference in fit as soon as I pulled them on. Lots of room for layers, adjustments are easy, and the fabric is really nice. I'm a full figured southern woman and the XLReg Silver Sonic was perfect.

I received these as a Christmas gift from my wonderful husband & absolutely love them. I can't wait to try them out, they fit great, did have to go to the petite size because I'm short, and they fit much better. Made for girls, so they fit much better a generic wader. Makes you feel like a fly fisher-woman fashionista for sure!
Great waders -

You can go cheaper but even for a beginner, these waders are the way to go. My previous pair lasted 15 years and with the new construction, I expect these to do even better.
Excellent Christmas gift for wife -
By: Reedrub from Bloomfield Hills, Michigan
I purchased new waders for my wife and they fit so well she wants to go fishing immediately. This is a win/win.
fine waders! -
By: bigbookben from slc, Utah
Christmas gift, 2013. She has tried them on and loves them, says they fit just right. I like the fact that these waders will be several noches above her old ones, and she will look like a lady in them. Have not tried them in the water yet but expect they will be as water tight as the male version I purchased 6 months ago!
Great waders -

Bought these for my wife for Christmas. After looking, trying several brands, found the Orvis waders to be superior in all aspects. Fit is exceptional and from previous experience, I know these will be durable and last a long time. Foot fit is right on and makes fitting boots an easy task. The convertible feature is excellent for her not needing two pairs.
