I used to be a Pearl Izumi bib girl, but this is my new favorite bib. I LOVE the flat seams at the leg and the length and compression of the whole leg/lower portion. The chamois is flat but super comfortable for long (40+ mile) rides. The straps have no extra snap or ridiculous closure that other manufacturers think women need to keep these straps in place: they stay put just fine. The height of the side panels hit in a great place: not too low so that that extra five lbs. squeezes out. Very flattering altogether. If I had any complaint, it's that the white panels at the hip area don't always go so well with multi-colored jerseys, and the black straps and upper portion show through most of my light colored jerseys. This, however, didn't stop me from buying a whole year's supple of these bibs.

Got this in purple, is very slimming for full-figured gals. I usually don't like elastic at the bottom, but the rear-only elastic seems to eliminate the problem of the bottom riding up. Great for cool but not cold weather riding under a vest, for cold weather under a jacket. Rear pockets don't sag when packed.

I love this jersey. It's light weight enough to wear under a jacket in cold weather but has enough heft under a vest on cool days -- feels very carefree. You really can't go wrong with Pearl Izumi, but I especially like the full front zip, the lack of elastic at the bottom (elastic is not effective on a full-figured gal, tends to ride up), and the cute split detail at the wrist (maybe not aero but fun apres-ride).
