Welcome to the awesome world of hockey!!
This might be too late for you, but in case anyone else is wondering about women's pants...
I've had the same problem, it's soooo frustrating!!! I'm in northern Canada, which brings similar problems as yours. We have one store that sells equipment, he even had a few women's things(shoulder pads) but very limited selection/sizing. I ordered online from hockeymonkey.com and had to have it shipped to a US address. I found Tackla pants - they fit really well! I have similar measurements to you(about 32/33 waist though) and found the 52 sizing in these pants, for up to a 34 waist. They ARE women's pants so fit the hips! I cannot wear men's pants due to the hip factor, lol!! But I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Tackla pants, they are super comfortable. I'm not sure if they can do Int'l orders, or if it was just them limited to shipping certain brands to Canada.
