Quality, comfortable bib shorts for women. Do they exist?

I'm looking for some new bib shorts and price aside I want to get a feel for which ones are flattering and comfortable!



I've worn Capo Custom and Castelli. Capo seem to be ok but the fit isn't great; they are a bit too loose around the waist.

Castelli custom kit bibs are extremely form-fitting but the fabric is a bit thin for my liking and the chamois is hopeless after a few washes.

The Rapha 3/4 bib knicks are wonderful and I curse the weather everytime it's too hot or cold to wear them.

My wife just bought these bib knicks. She tried on every pair Clarence St had and these were the most comfortable by long way she said. Obviously they were the most expensive in the shop, $250. We since saw them at Velosophy in Moore Park for $220 I think it was.

I've been using dhb bibs from wiggle and they're unbelievably good for under $50
They make a women's specific version, check it out. Just ordered my missus a pair

My wife has tried Pearl Izumi, Sugoi and the latest purchase of Assos FI 13.

After trying the FI 13, she's never going to look back at those ones that she had previously. According to her, the comfort exceed Pearl Izumi and Sugoi by far.

I did hinted that it hurt my pocket a bit too! ;)

I'm a fan of Assos bibs. Padding is super comfy and the lycra is tight in all the right areas without cutting in on the thighs.

+1, love my Saphora kit, bibs are awesome, great for racing or long rides, I get heaps of comments about the kit.

Rapha make regular length bibs for ladies now, fit well, great chamois, have worn them on long rides (100k+) and good to race in.
