I had my wife google this for a PDF:
MTI Adjust-a-Bust fit system provides support for women's bodies; they had a short you tube video that was easy to follow!
She tried it on and was instantly happy with the fit for a womens anatomy. If your looking for more time on the water this summer, this PDF for women, will go along ways for making her want to go out more!
It has two memory foam pads positioned under the bust to offer superior support and pressure distribution
Sports bra inspired racer back shape provides great
Rescue / Throw Bags
PFD's (Life Jackets)
1 Canoe/Kayak Trailer

Didn't Pass Surfski Remount Test|

Too bulky up front, which hampers remounting tippy surfski in rough water, according to my daughter, who I bought it for. Instead, she prefers her old Ocean Paddler pfd that has worked for her in cold water remounts after a capsize. Much easier and faster than her new Mocke pfd in remounting too.

trying different ones on and wasting money on high end ones that wouldn't fit properly that she finally took hers completely apart and rebuilt it. She has been a happy paddler ever since, even though it's probably not USCG approved any more.

Now that's Terrific|

Wondering if she repositioned the floatation pads to run vertical rather than horizontal where they get hung up on the gunnels trying to remount? And as you probably already know that USCG approved means for non active users that sit around passively waiting. I prefer the internationally approved pfd's used in competition, for most were designed to meet the high stress demands of very active paddlers.
Favorite is a youth PFD|

Kokatat Aries in smallest size|

They have one size of it for youth XL (or XXL, can't remember which) or adult XXS. Back foam is thicker on top and thin on the bottom half. Kokatat's photos give you a good idea of the transition of thickness.

I had that MTI vest. Didn't work for me. Bulky. Wound up using none of the pads. Never really got why they were provided.

a 'women's specific' vest may fit a man just as well, or better, than it does a woman.
