    The silver lining.

    The nice thing about so many manufacturers making technological advances in their pro-level designs is that some, like Giordana, adapt those advancements to apparel with a more accessible price tag. That's exactly what Giordana did with the SilverLine Women's Bib Shorts, which still feature a practical cut and functional fabric construction that leave them well-suited to everyday training.

    Giordana depends on a soft, breathable microfiber to make up the SilverLine's main body fabric, constructing it in a contoured fit that will follow your body movements in the saddle without being restrictive. The lie-flat bib straps are something we're seeing more of in cycling shorts, and Giordana adds its own version to the SilverLine, giving it a less irritating fit while you're bent over in the drops. Woven elastic lines the leg cuffs to ensure they stay put as you move around in the saddle, and the bib straps' minimal shape sits subtly underneath jerseys, wicking moisture away as you ride with a smooth, forgiving fit.

    The SilverLine Bib Shorts are lined with Giordana's Cirro S-W chamois, a hardworking one-piece insert that provides a mix of relief and support as you ride without inhibiting your ability to pedal and move around. It's also designed not to hold onto moisture, and continuously wicks to lessen the likelihood of chafing and irritation. After your ride, it rebounds to its original shape, already anticipating tomorrow's miles.

    Cloud-like Chamois

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    I'd bought this bib for the Seattle to Portland bicentennial ride and they did not disappoint. For a whole weekend of riding I felt like I was sitting on a cloud, felt no discomfort, and no chafing (without chamois cream, no less). I'll second the feedback of others that the straps don't provide any particular level of support holding the shorts in place so they're just an obstacle when using the restroom more than anything, but the comfort of these shorts makes me forget any of that annoyance. I've recommended these to all the women in my family and think these are an excellent investment.

    Chamois=rad, not huge fan of the straps

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Overall a really quality bib as I would expect from any Giordana product. Fit is quality and really great chamois makes long rides not take a toll on your backside. i wear a small in most brands for bibs (Medium in Castelli and small in Pearl Izumi and Specialized) and the medium Giordana clothing fits me well.
    I really like the wide band and grips on the end of the shorts, it really ensures that the bibs stay put even during climbing/ efforts out of the saddle, which is awesome. I will say I wish the the top part of the short went up a little bit higher, this might be just because I'm really tall (5'11'') but the top of the short goes up to slightly below my belly button. This looks kind of funky when I'm standing up straight but once I'm bending over on the bike and actually riding, the shorts fit great and there isn't a lot of fabric bunching up around my mid section. Which I believe is what Giordana was going for with this kind of cut.

    One other thing I'm not a huge fan of is the straps on the bibs. Like Lindsay said in her review below, the bibs are like shorts with suspenders sewn on. This isn't a huge issue I just don't really like the straps that much, due to the construction, the seem to not pull up the short as well as some other bibs I have owned. Also, there is no hook system to help me take the bibs off for a mid-ride restroom break. However, I doesn't seem any brand has perfected this for womens bibs just yet so for now I will continue to struggle but life will go on. That all being said, I still wear these bibs all the time and I really like them because the chamois is so rad. Feels like I'm riding a comfy beach cruiser saddle without as much bulk and on my hard stiff carbon steed saddle.

    10-star chamois.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: extra-small

    The chamois alone on these shorts is worth every penny of the price. Seriously. So, so comfortable. Not a single issue on 3+ hour rides, which is rare. And awesome.

    Giordana (and the rest of the cycling world) seems to be trending towards a longer leg length on its shorts, which may or may not be a positive depending on your point of view. The Silverlines follow that trend, and are about an inch or two longer than I'm used to. A bonus of the added length is that these shorts work beautifully with knee and leg warmers - no bunching or movement at all. Initially, the leg bands were almost uncomfortably tight (the rest of the legs fit perfectly), but a bit of stretching and a few wears has loosened them up just enough to be comfy.

    If you're used to wearing bibs, it's probably worth noting that these don't feel quite like regular bib shorts. The back is pretty standard bib construction, but the sides and front are more akin to a non-bib short with straps sewn on like suspenders. That, paired with the waist sitting a bit lower than normal, results in the uncomfortable waist band feeling that bibs usually eliminate, especially when first kitting up. I'm on the taller end of the spectrum though (5'8", size XS), so the waist edging may hit at a less awkward spot for shorter riders. That said, with a baselayer and a little adjusting of the waist once on the bike, I don't notice it much out on the road.

    The sizing on these falls on the euro side of things, maybe leaning a bit to the American side of Castelli. The construction does have its quirks compared to more expensive options out there, but I'm giving these five stars for a ridiculously amazing chamois and top-tier fabrics at a great price.
