Notes about fit
- For cycling bibs and shorts, the HIP MEASUREMENT is the most crucial factor.
- For cycling jerseys, the BUST MEASUREMENT is most important for sizing.
- Measure around the WIDEST POINT of the hips/bum, and the WIDEST POINT of the bust (not the ribcage).
- If you are between sizes or petite, we recommend SIZING DOWN for a compressive fit. A snug fit is crucial to performance.
- Check out our FIT GUIDE for more detailed instructions, or pop your measurements into the fit calculator above for a personalized recommendation! (Please note, the fit guide requires chest, waist and hip measurements.)
- Ultra high density ischiatic inserts will stay comfortable for up to 6 hours in the saddle. Positioning works for all sit bones widths.
- Thermo-molded design makes this chamois look, and feel, less bulky.
- High density ‘pelvic track’ insert shaped for a woman’s anatomy.
- Extremely soft and breathable fabric. Polymide-carbon threading makes the fabric ultra fast drying, bacteriostatic, and reduces heat gain during long hours in the saddle.
I was hesitant because this kit was more expensive than what I usually spend on my cycling clothes. However, the summer weight long sleeve jersey is lovely and comfortable and way better than slathering sunscreen on my arms (which I always manage to get in my eyes somehow!). The bibs fit like a glove, a close-fitting glove. When I took them out of the package, I thought, "Yikes, I won't be able to get these on!" But indeed they stretched and were very comfortable once in place; and also, subsequently were easier to pull on. And most importantly, oh so comfortable to cycle in.
This is the first kit I have ever purchased and it delivers! I am obsessed with the Bib, once you put it on, it doesn't move, you don't have to worry about it moving, riding up, it's perfect. I LOVE IT. I had to exchange the jersey for a larger size, I used the calculator for sizing and it fit but it was a little to snug for my likely, though that's how it is designed to fit. Looking forward to ordering a pair of shorts when they become available again.
I love this kit! My favorite bib shorts I own. I've only worn the top once though because it's actually still too hot here to wear it more often. But I received a ton of compliments on it and I look forward to wearing it more in the fall! My only suggestion would be to construct the shorts with flat overlocking seams. I opted for a tight race fit, and a flat seam would be a nice touch for that added touch of quality and comfort given the number of seams in the construction of the shorts.
I was soooo skeptical about this kit. It’s definitely more than I’ve spent on a kit before and I hesitated for probably a month before buying it. I wasn’t sure about sizing and sent my measurements and purchased the recommended size (small) and was so concerned it wouldn’t fit, as I’m really tall and roughly a 6 and wasn’t sure if I should wear a medium...but it’s perfect. Absolutely perfect. I haven’t really worn another kit since I got it, I feel like I’ve been washing this kit daily! It’s so comfortable, the fit is amazing and supportive, it’s pretty and feminine, it’s made really well, the long sleeves protect my arms from the sun, and the pockets hold everything really securely and don’t ever feel like they are bouncing around. It’s been pretty hot here lately and I’ve felt cool and comfortable, even on long rides. The bibs take a bit longer to get on as they are tighter than other bibs and shorts I’ve got, BUT they also don’t hook on my seat or feel saggy or like the chamois is in the wrong place, they stay right where they are supposed to. The company supports women, too, and that is really important to me and where I want to be spending my money. I already have another kit ordered and will probably buy one more after that as I’m planning to live in these allllll year, I want every long sleeve jersey they make! 10/10, highly recommend.
So happy with my palmera jersey and bib shorts. This is my second pair of bibs and fourth jersey from MFF and it's hands down my favorite cycling kit brand. The compression is just enough to feel supported and the cushion is fantastic. I was a little skeptical of the long sleeved jersey, but I really love it. It's been great for spring weather and a nice alternative to wearing arm warmers. The fit is great for my athletic build, including bigger upper arms. I ordered a medium in both bibs and jersey. I am 135 lbs, 5'3", usually wear a size 4 or a medium in Velocio or Rapha.
