Cracking the Code: How to Snag the Perfect Women’s Cycling Bib Shorts

Cracking the Code: How to Snag the Perfect Women’s Cycling Bib Shorts

At Muze Women, we know choosing the right pair of women’s cycling bib shorts is like finding the Holy Grail.

Unfortunately, years of chafe, see-through fabric, sausage legs, hot pants and wayward shoulder straps has left us all disheartened. We're here to spill the beans on how to snag the perfect cycling shorts that will not only have you pedalling in comfort but turning heads along the way.

Decoding the Enigma: The Truth about Cycling Shorts and Cycling Bibs

Cycling bib shorts are no ordinary piece of clothing. They're like superhero capes for your derriere. With their technical fit and padded chamois, they protect your delicate parts from discomfort and friction. A good quality, well-fitting pair of cycling shorts or cycling bibs can be the difference between an enjoyable ride and absolute misery on the bike.

Choose Your Weapon: The Muze Women Arsenal

When it comes to unleashing your cycling potential, the choice between cycling bibs and cycling shorts is really up to you.

1. Cycling Bibs:

Our Muze Women cycling bibs will take centre stage at launch. Bibs means they have shoulder straps, eliminating the need for a tight waistband and offer great comfort and a secure fit.

2. Padded Cycling Shorts:

Not yet in the Muze arsenal, cycling shorts offer a classic option with a snug waistband and no shoulder straps, providing freedom of movement and style that will make you the envy of the road or cycling class.

Choose the style that suits you. We would obviously recommend our new cycling bibs (until we have the shorts version and then you choose!)

Unravelling the Mystery: The Art of Choosing Cycling Bib Shorts

1. Fit Matters

When it comes to cycling shorts and bibs, fit is everything. You want them snug enough to stay put and hold you in, but not so tight you feel like a sausage squeezed into Lycra. Our advice? Read more about our fit and check out our size chart and sizing calculator on every clothing page to find the perfect fit.

2. Chamois Are The Headquarters

The chamois is the headquarters of cycling shorts. If the headquarters isn’t humming then nothing works. The Muze chamois is all-round endurance and female specific (i.e. not unisex). That means it’s designed for female pressure points, it's fat and thin in the right spots, breathable, moisture-wicking, anti-bacterial, and so comfy your delicate parts will thank you. 

3. Fabric that Laughs in the Face of Wear and Tear

Our cycling shorts and bibs are made from top-notch fabrics that can handle anything the road throws at them. They're four-way stretch and made in Italy from 92 per cent recycled fibres, so they are tough, yet soft and flexible, with a lower impact on the environment. They are breathable, anti-bacterial and wick away moisture, so you can keep your cool even when you're working up a sweat. 

Plus, they're built to last, so you can rock them ride after ride, season after season.

4. Thigh-Smoothing Grippers 

Leg grippers are like the bouncers of the cycling world. They keep your cycling shorts and bibs down and in place. The problem for any woman with half-decent thighs is the cuff can often result in the dreaded sausage leg. The good news is, the Muze Women cycling bibs are thigh smoothing and seamless (i.e. cuff free).

5. Don't Compromise On Style

Why choose a pair of cycling shorts or bibs that look like grandpa’s 1920s bathing suit when you de-layer? The Muze cycling bibs look pretty cool and flattering, even when the cycling jersey is off. Having said that, if you want to keep your jersey on, you can mix and match our cool print designs.
