Default 5700 Tricking the Metering

i took some flash pictures last night of my g/f wearing a jogging suit with reflective stripes on the jacket and pants. the only thing that appears in the pictures are the super-bright reflective stripes. the stripes totally screw up the exposure on each shot.

any way to adjust for this???(its not that important, but im curious if there is a way!)

I tested a few shots on my runners that have reflective fabric on them. The flash will always make the fabric 'flare up' (what the fabric is suppose to do from the few different settings I made. Setting the 5700 to 'S' - Shutter Priority I set the F number to 4.0 with no flash and NR set On. The room was half lit, these pics were not as vivid as I did not use the flash but, there was no 'flare up' on the reflective strips.

Not a thorough test, hope it helps you somewhat
