Anyone know where I can find advice/references for female armour that would fit a curvier individual?

looking back at Darynara's armour had me thinking, she is a DWARF! they know how to do the best heavy armour, surely that would mean that female Dwarven armour is awesome!

If I did a breastplate that would fit her size it would practically be a deathtrap, any sword thrust would be redirected up or down [neck or belly] instead of to the sides like normal breastplates. So not very good.

also I need it to be at least somewhat manouverable she still has to fight in it not be ridgid and awkward.

Larger protective collar? any ideas?

Well, dwarfs are supposed to be strong as hell. :)  So why not have her in Full platemail armor.  You could also make a set of Clockwork like armor, that folds into semi big pieces on her, so when she needs to fight, it founds out into full armor  O_o...  That clockwork armor is from a game, but it looks pretty good, Ill see if I cant go through and find it.

~N647 beat me to it, but this is something I've been kicking around in my head for a long time too...

Looking forward to what you come up with, though maybe she could just have something more utilitarian with fine decorative work (which would probably be a pain to draw).

Probably would be a pain hah, but I need to get this sorted in my brain! If I have to go that rout I would, Dwarves do tend to be practical and like their detail after all.

Real life armours would never fit Darynara for example so something has to be made special.

If I do come up with something I will upload it to get some feedback =]
