For cycling bibs and shorts, the HIP MEASUREMENT is the most crucial factor. Measure around the WIDEST POINT of the hips/bum. If you are between sizes or petite (5'3" or under), we recommend SIZING DOWN for a compressive fit. A snug fit is crucial to performance.

I saw a friend wearing these and prompt me to order them right away. I wanted to add a little more color to my bike wardrobe and I’m so happy with how bright they are. Perfect for summer! They run a little big and I knew it because my friend mentioned it but I didn’t size down so I could wear padded bike “underwear”
These shorts are incredibly comfortable, well-made, and a perfect length. I listened to other reviewers and got a 26 rather than a 27 (I'm usually between the two sizes), and they fit perfectly. Trim fit without being tight, and just loose enough to go over a chamois. I am so impressed with these, and all the more thrilled to purchase them on Final Sale... what a steal! My only complaint, if anything, is that the back pocket zipper tabs can be a little difficult to find when you're on the move/impossible with gloves on. That's certainly not a show-stopper, though; especially not for an otherwise-perfect pair of shorts.
Super soft, super flexi, and super comfy. And pockets that actually fit things!
I measured myself as being between a 27/28 so I opted for the 28 as I HATE having a tight waistband. Sadly these are massive in the waist, I can basically fit my whole fist in there which makes me think I'd need a 26 for them to work. Can't return because of the sale so I'm hoping they'll fit my friend. Otherwise, the quality seems impeccable like most everything MFF has to offer so I may try to order the full price army green color in a 27. I love that they actually sit at your waist as I've tried another big women owned brand that claims to be a natural waist short and isn't. The color of these is awesome, I'm all for chartreuse/high viz. Might be worth sizing down or at least choosing the smaller of 2 sizes if you're between!
Great shorts. But the sizing is way off. I ordered a size 28 which is the size I wear. The shorts fit great through the seat and legs but have a HUGE gap in the waist. I'd be nervous to size down , for my booty and thighs. Can't return because I bout on sale.
