Oh, thank Goodness, it fits!!!!This PFD is a dream. I am a size XXL in womens clothing, typically an 18 in pants and a 46C. I am only 5'2" and find that I often end up with PFD's up in my face or cinched so tight that I can't breathe. Plenty of extra room for bigger gals (I had several inches to spare on all of the adjustment points.) The adjustable bust support could be improved by adding a second row higher up. My bust was a couple inches above the support so it did nothing for me (but it wasn't uncomfortable or a hindrance either). Lots of range of motion, easy access pockets. So comfortable that I forgot I was wearing it and my husband had to remind me to take it off when we were packing up for the day. I can't speak to white water but for canoeing or kayaking on lakes, it's ideal. Lightweight and not stifling in the heat (it was 100 degrees here and I was fine in it.) I highly recommend this PFD, though I think it would be more fair or accurate to use the old MTI sizing. This would probably have to be cinched down all the way on a true XL clothing size gal. But that's good news for anyone on the bigger end of the size chart, where selections are grossly limited.
