    Default Women's Bib Shorts. I Love Them

    I vowed to myself that if I survived the winter of commuting, if I was still standing after five months of hideous hills on a bike that's too big and heavy for me, I'd reward myself with bib shorts.

    What an excellent idea.

    I love them.

    They were almost as expensive as my wedding dress but oh, so much more useful.

    They feel like I'm wearing nothing. There are no pressure points. None.

    I understand why men prefer them.

    The zippers are useful and make bathroom breaks easy.
    The leg bands are soft, silky, and nonbinding.
    The black and white color panel combination I ordered is much better looking on than in the photographs.
    They wash perfectly in the delicate cycle in my washing machine.
    The chamois is perfection, three different zones of anatomically correct comfort.
    Worth every cent. And I'm frankly cheap. Not in *that* way, but you know what I mean.

    Happy bib shorts trails.(They aren't just for MAMIL anymore)

    Those look super nice. The zipper there is key! I'm also relatively new to the world of bib shorts, and, while I do love the feel of them, a standard pair (i.e. no fancy schmancy zipper) makes nature breaks for the ladies a major pain in the @$$.

    How difficult is it to rezip? Seems like you have to reattach the zippers at the back.

    I presume you won't be wearing these during the triathalon. Did you ever figure out what you are going to wear for the tri?

    Zipping is easy. You can do it with one hand, not hard at all.

    Have not come to a firm conclusion about the tri outfit. The manufacturers take two approaches. One, make cycling shorts that can be immersed in water. Two, make swimsuit (bottom half) that can be ridden on a bike.
