You are pretty much my exact build.

I have a A* leather jacket in size 8. Enough space for a long sleeve shirt with sweater. I fit into 6 very good.
Textile I'm not too sure. My textile (1st gear ever) is L but it's better to have it fit snug rather than lose.

Just measure yourself and see if the numbers match in size 5/small. I really like the Shift. Plus they have great quality. Best bang for the buck.

My gear.

That was exactly my leather/boots/gloves set up until it got cut off me in an accident. Now I've got just a whole mess a gear - jackets, pants, full suits, etc... Any larger ladies need gear?

When you turn your bike on, does it return the favor?

innersuit liner

Kimberly says you should check out the MOTO-D Racing motorcycle riding Undersuit!

It makes sliding into your leathers much easier! The undersuit doesn't stick to your arms so you won't wrestle with it or the leathers on a hot day. When compared to separates, it doesn't bunch up or move around, and it's much more comfortable than UA.

Not bad...but I wear a 2 piece Dainese suit or a 2 piece A* suit on the road/travel /grocery shopping for a reason... and a 1 piece undersuit kind of undermines that purpose.... Quick dry sports underwear (top and bottom) from Nike or Underarmour has worked better for me.

I have to admit I prefer men's jackets, they feel like they have thicker armour.
