Tina, unless you've got quite small hands, like me, you might need to go for the Men's glove, as mine are very snug, and I've got short fingers (no piano lessons for me!). My fingers are quite slight, too, little finger size D for rings, middle finger size L. The gloves are snug, but very, very soft, and I think worth the money. If you've got a Notcutts near you they stock them (they have one glove on a chain for folks to try on, so it's a little bit bigger than the ones I've got - had countless people trying it on I guess. So I'd try and find a stockist, so you can try them on. I would have bitten the bullet and bought some from there, but hey, they didn't have them in stock!
I've just checked and Amazon are doing them for £23.95, which is the same as ebay, given the choice Amazon is always better to return to - can just say didn't fit, which I did with the first gauntlets I tried. Type tough touch into the amazon search box. They look and feel as though they will stand up to the job, and the gauntlet bit comes about two-thirds of the way up to my elbow. Hoping to try them out at the weekend - you watch the rain come now I've said that!!
