Army Tests Combat Uniform Designed for Women

“Changes to the uniform were made following recommendations of female Soldiers during preliminary testing and research phases made by the PEO team.
“The biggest issue that a majority of females have with the current ACU is that the uniform was not designed for a female’s body,” said Staff Sgt. Jessika Malott, stationed at Fort Meade, Md. “The cut of the uniform and a female’s body type usually leaves us looking like a duffel bag.”
‘Women have so many different shapes and sizes, we’re as not as ‘straight’ as men are,” said Robinson.”
