Nomex clothing in Women's sizing

I don't think there are any women drivers on here, but does anybody know someplace that has women's specific cut Nomex underwear? Specifically, I am looking for something like the long sleeve OMP shirt with a mock turtleneck style neck. My wife is quite fit and petite, and a men's small will never work. She needs something she can pull on for sessions and take off in between. The standard places I know to look all carry generic sizing, but even OMP small is in the right height range as she is 5'4" but way too big in the weight range. She would swim in it.

We sell a lot of Nomex underwear, and we've found that all the major brands (Sparco, OMP, Alpinestars) only make unisex underwear, although they make 1-2 female specific race suits.

OMP and Sparco tend to make 'generous' sizing underwear. You might want to take a look at Alpinestars, their underwear tends to be extremely fitting (personally I think that's an understatement). Both Alpinestars and OMP make Extra Small sizes in their underwear, with Alpinestars being the more fitted of the two from our experience.

that would be about perfect. i bet we can use her hand me downs. they are about the same size except my wife probably has 10-15 lbs more muscle packed on than danica. danica looks soft.

I'd ask Denise at VRO, the TWS shop. She might be able to help.
