This is a touchy subject. We all want to believe that things are made "just for us." First, women need to understand that the founder, owner, designer and Yada Yada of JL is a woman. A woman rower. Some garments are engineered by gender. All are engineered as functional rowing garments.
Unisex-this is not an evil word
Unisex means that it works for both. Not that it was made for a man and the women need to "make do."
If function dictates design that overrides the needs of a woman's shape, it works as a unisex garment.
How do JL Unisex sizes apply to women?
Generally, a JL unisex size is one size larger than what you might consider your normal retail women's size. For example, a JL unisex small Tech Shirt equates to a similar retail sports garment size Medium.
We have 25 years of experience sizing women in our unisex garments-we can help.

Where we feel it is important to have a garment cut specifically for a woman, we do it.

Function vs Fashion
What Paris Hilton wears today will not make us change the design of our garments.
Your team race-day uniform should be viewed the same as the other equipment that you expect to be perfectly rigged. This is not a place to compromise function for fashion.
A race is only 6-8 minutes--there is plenty of time to think about your tan line, cleavage or six pack after you have won the race.
