JoFit Ladies Apparel: Review

Published

on

With a lot of golf apparel companies you can tell exactly what age group the apparel for is geared for, but Jofit isn’t like that. As long as you get a proper fit, JoFit apparel can work for any age group.

The company’s sizes range from XS through XL and sizes 0 through 16. A little insider information; next year they will be adding XXL’s in select styles. If you’re wondering how the clothes run, I’ve found that they are very true to size.

Jofit shirts are designed with darts in the back to give your waist shape. The tops also have a scooped bottom hem that lengthens your leg line so you can swing with confidence. The shirts I received were not overdone at all. The Gracie Sleeveless Top is simple with a subtle pop of color that can be paired with a matching belt that ties it all together. The Performance Polo in cobalt blue is so vibrant and has such a clean and cool feeling to it.

I’m cold all the time, so if I’m wearing a long-sleeved tops I’m constantly pulling the bottoms of my sleeves over my hands to try to get just a little warmer. The jackets Jofit offers have the thumbhole cutouts that are becoming increasingly popular. They eliminate my need to try to pull the sleeves down, so problem solved! I will warn you that you might not want to have the sleeves pulled all the way down when you’re actually swinging, however. You’ll likely lack some stability in your grip.

At first glance, the bottoms I received didn’t have that “Wow!” factor that I typically look for. I was actually a little nervous I wasn’t going to like them. However, when they were paired with the right tops everything came together perfectly. The fit of the bottoms was impeccable. With wide contoured waistbands designed to smooth and flatten your waistline and abdomen, the company’s bottoms are sure to be a real crowd pleaser.

The length of the Belted Golf Shorts is spot-on, measuring in at 16 inches — not too short and not too long. The rear patch pockets are not only the perfect size for a scorecard, they also give your toosh a lift. The Signature Golf Skort is along the same lines, measuring just a little longer at 17 inches in length. The skort is tight enough that it flatters you, but loose enough to be functional when bending to tee your ball up or crouching to read a putt.

Worth mentioning: if you are on the petite side, the company’s one-size-fits-all Jo Belt might not be for you. The end of the belt went all the way to the middle of my back.

Another nice thing about Jofit is that the items it offers can easily crossover to other sports or activities. I read on JoFit’s website that founder and CEO, Joanne Cloak, a.k.a. “Jo,” is a former physical education teacher and lifelong athlete. So she knows that when a woman feels her best, she can perform at her best. My thoughts exactly!

After close review of the items I received, I have decided that they make me feel trendy yet sophisticated at the same time and I want to stock my closet with more Jofit.

    Thanks Kimberly for going to such lengths to help, that’s all really good information.

    You are spot on with LoudMouth. I’m not sure that we can get the custom fit in the UK (will check) but my girlfriend does already own one pair (purchased last year) and they do fit reasonably well. So LoudMouth must be one of the few companies that do make a long leg option. I’m pretty sure that she purchased directly from the LM website in the UK.

    The only problem with LoudMouth is that they are aren’t the trousers for all occasions 🙂 and you might want something a little less offensive in the locker for those more “proper” occasions.

    I will pass all this information on. Thanks again.

    Morning Kimberly. This isn’t related to the article I’m afraid, but I hope you don’t mind.

    My girlfriend has real trouble in finding ladies golf trousers in longer sizes and I wondered if you might be able to help with any ideas of supplier / brands / etc.?

    She’s 5’11”, 9st 4lbs and trousers would need to have a 34″ Leg (minimum). Any recommendations would be appreciated. We live in the UK, but sure we can get any US stuff shipped over. So far all she’s found that fits are selected Chervo ranges (can be expensive) and Mens gear (with obvious disadvantages).

    Thanks.

      Hi Andy, I’ve done a pretty good amount of research and I can’t seem to find anything. I actually have the same issue and I’m only 5’7″ so I feel for your girlfriend! I’m only 110 pounds so when companies actually do make pants long enough to fit me they usually don’t have them for more petite frames like mine. I actually don’t own one pair of golf pants! I have a couple suggestions. I’m sure they aren’t what you’re looking for but at this time they’re the best I have.

      I think these serve the purpose of keeping her warm on a chilly morning and they’re also cute. And with this length she doesn’t have to worry about them being too short: http://athleta.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=46813&vid=2&pid=870455032.

      I also sent out an email to all of my current clothing apparel company contacts and the people at Jofit were kind enough to get back to me quickly. Tina with Jofit says “Our pants are 32” inseam length. But I’ll tell you something – I’m 5’9” and I ADORE our cropped pant. We have them in navy and heather charcoal right now. They look like their supposed to….cropped and not just “too short” because we made them long enough to be hemmed if you’re not that tall. https://www.jofit.com/product.aspx?zpid=7236”

      I really hope this information helps, Andy. Again, I know it isn’t exactly the answer you were hoping for but I assure you I will keep my eyes and ears open and let you know if I find anything else out.

      Also, the people at Nivo just got back to me and apparently their inseam is 33″ and the pants fit their models who are 5’10”. If they were still too short she could look at having the hem let out a little. They don’t have an online store so they might be a little more hard to track down. Here is their store locator: http://www.nivosport.com/where-to-buy/

      I just got word from Loudmouth that they offer up to a 36″ inseam in their Made-to-Order section on their website: http://us.loudmouthgolf.com/index.php/women/women-mto/women-s-pants.html

      I hope all this information helps!

    UPDATE: The belts are adjustable, military style. You unbuckle it, pull it to your size, and cut the canvas. Then it fits all!

    Oops!… I’ve never owned this style belt before so I didn’t realize that.
