    Are there any lady drivers out there who have found pants that actually fit?? I was told to order the men's because the women's pants are pleated in the front. The shirts are way too short and I can almost pull the pants up to my armpits! I don't care if I look like a dork in the uniform. I just need to be able to move around normally. Any advice???

    What's wrong with pleated pants?

    The lady who ordered them told me they look weird and every other woman who has worked at our center wore men's instead.

    OK-----can you get the pants you ordered altered?

    It would be on your own dime.

    I suppose that is an option...

    Are the other female driver about the same size as you? Would you feel comfortable trying on a pair of their pants and, if they fit or are close, ordering new pants for yourself?

    Unless, of course, you enjoy wearing pants that go up to just under your armpits. :)

    I wear a 33 long-----she would have to fasten the belt across her forehead.

    Right now there is only one other female driver who is a good bit larger than I am. I guess I could ask her how she gets her pants to fit without offending her or something.

    @MTbrown no offense, but you are a bit goofy looking.
     
  11. Most of the complaints I hear from the female drivers. That the uniforms are not very flattering for their figure.

    Man, it will be awkward using the DIAD when I have to lift my shirt all the way up to get to it!
     
  14. If they let you order. We are on a uniform freeze.

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the pants don't even look good on the guys. If you want anything close to a good fit you will have to have them altered. UPS likes their people looking like slobs and driving dirty trucks now days. Apparently if the public thinks all UPS drivers are deranged slobs its good for business.

    Good idea for pants.

    Bad idea for mail order brides.
