High-performance bib shorts for women

Bike Radar Editor's choice Read the review »

The new Souplesse Bib Shorts feature pared-back styling and striking contrast details, and use the same fabric as the acclaimed men’s Pro Team Bib Shorts, which have been tried and tested by Team Sky at the highest levels of pro road racing.

The fabric is treated with coldblack®, a highly technical dye that reflects the sun’s rays to keep the fabric cool against the skin, and the Souplesse Bib Shorts have an aero fit, for maximum comfort in a ‘race’ position on the bike. The bib section went through many stages of testing and refinement, and the result is a fine and comfortable mesh that contours to accommodate different bust sizes and body types, ensuring a perfect silhouette. The straps use a mesh fabric for breathability, and the waist and legs are tailored for a compressive fit to give full support.

The Souplesse Shorts have a race fit but remain true to size. If you have purchased Rapha Shorts before please buy the same size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable! I used them for the first time today on a 50 mile ride and forgot I was wearing a cycling short. They were extremely comfortable. I was worried about the straps being difficult to pull up when my body was wet with sweat but there was no issue. I am 5'4 and 120 pounds and wore the S and did not have sausage leg.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb pad Really comfy and well fitting shorts. I was initially concerned about the bib straps being too short/tight but they're fine whilst riding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable This is about third pair of bib shorts I have bought; they are amazingly comfortable! I have never had a problem with chaffing and I wore them on 250k rides. My daughter (13) is also a fan. They work well with leg and knee warmers ( no cutting into thighs).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Love Love these! Having worn this bib on a number of long rides (3+ hours), I have to say they are now my favourites! The white section doesn't have much give, the waist is a little tight to get over the thighs when putting on, but once on you don't notice at all. They fit nicely around the legs, tiny bit of sausage thighs but I have never some across a bib that didn't do that a little bit. Chamois is perfect support, not too spongy, doesn't feel like a nappy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! My boyfriend turned me on to Rapha. These bibs fit perfectly and the quality is amazing. The fabric is so smooth and comfortable. The length is longer than what I normally wear, so I would like to also order the "shorter" style sometime soon. I usually wear a size small, and size XS or XXS in these bibs fit perfectly.

Hi, Just got the these and everything is great, but fabric bunches up at the back. I am short (5'-3"), may be that's why. The bibs are tight on grippers, but relaxed on thighs. Would a smaller size eliminate fabric bunching up? Thanks! Svetlana

Asked by: JamesL
A small may remove the fabric bunching up the back. We do have a 90 day returns policy where you can return your garments.

Hi, I already have the classic BIB shorts in XXS. I am interested in souplesse BIB in short. Do the size are same between classic BIB and souplesse BIB? I have a 25" waist and 150 cm height. Which size would you recommend for me? Thanks.

Asked by: mk27
Hi, please refer to the size guide as far as possible. The Classic Bibs are a more relaxed fit compared to the Souplesse and so it can be recommend to size up. With the information you have provided, we would suggest you try a XS. Should you need to exchange, we have a 90 days return period.

Hi, what is the difference between short and regular? (I think size XL for me, EU 42-44, the drawing isn't that clear to me)

Asked by: delphinibali
Hi, the difference in leg length between regular and short is 5cm. The same difference is true for all sizes.

I have a 28" waist but I'm concerned since my hips are 40" and my thigh/quads are 22". My waist is small but hips are usually a large. How do the leg openings and room for a backside fair?

Asked by: ss23
Hi, these shorts are cut with a close, race ready fit. The leg openings do have quite a lot of stretch to accommodate a variety of leg sizes. The classic shorts have a slightly more relaxed fit if these shorts do not work for your body shape. As always we do offer a free a 90 day returns policy if needed.
