These wellies are perfect for women with wider calves - I have always cut the top 3 inches off the top off regular-sized wellies because they were too tight around the top, so it was lovely to pull on a pair that fitted first time! My calves measure 43cm/17" at the widest point and these fitted without having to unbuckle the gusset at the top, so I guess there's room for a bit extra. I have slightly wide feet and they fit well there, too. They are reinforced around the shoe area, but they're not heavy to wear at all, and have a grippy sole. I think they're an excellent product and I'm surprised that there aren't more designs produced in this wider fitting, as I'm sure I'm not the only one who would buy them.
