I have searched everywhere for a pair of white women’s painters
I have gone on Carhartt in degrees in and many others websites when I have googled painters pants and women
I am a size 2 or zero
Any ideas anyone I am working on the commercial side in the general contractor requires white paint or paint in men’s do not fit me

Your not alone. Have you searched on Amazon.? Most woman Painters that I know just buy white pants unrelated to the construction industry.

Just working on some stuff that's not painting, but has info about painters...

According to Bureau of Labor Statistics numbers, the percentage of "Painters and paper hangers" who are women is about 8%. This will certainly contribute to making it harder for women to find suitable apparel. Small market. And among the trades, it's actually the highest percentage. (E.g. .3% of masons are female. 1.5% in HVAC, 2.3% of plumbers, etc.). So that doesn't help either.

I don't understand what the problem is. I rarely found a pair of painter pants that fit. They would shrink in all kinds of awkward ways, but I wasn't trying to make a fashion statement, so I lived with it. I did find coveralls to be the most comfortable. The overalls never fit correctly because the straps would always fall off of my narrow shoulders.

I still chuckle every time I read the first sentence of this post. I started to post that I was available, but I work alone and she was looking for a pair.

I'm pretty sure AngieM started a thread specifically about this issue a year or two ago that might have something to offer. I'll see if I can find it.

Here we go:

I think I didn't reply to your question, so here is my reply in case you don't see my comment:

Do the expensive ones fit better? I'm also looking for something other than the Dickies
I thought the more expensive Carhartt's would be the ultimate in painters pants, but I might as well have wrapped potato sacks around my legs.
