If you are unsure of which bibs or shorts to choose, take a look at our new Women's Bib Shorts Guide

Seasonal-edition bib shorts, the bib section features a specially commissioned print from Liberty, the historic London department store. The shorts 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 racing-bike positions. 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 supportive fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these, stylist and very comfy! I have been riding in size XS classic bibs for a few months and love them. Deciding it was time for a second pair of Rapha shorts, I bought these in size S. The fit is for the most part excellent. When standing the straps pull a bit and there is some excess fabric at the back of my legs (would like them to fit a bit tighter but not enough to size down). On the bike, however, everything sits just right. I'm a fan of the leg grippers, which are wide and "sticky" and do a good job of holding the shorts in place. The pattern is gorgeous and pairs well with the matching Liberty souplesse base layer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit overall!! I bought this online. The sizing chart was spot on! I am 5'-6" and the small is a perfect fit. So far theyale great bibs for long rides. The Chamois makes me feel like I am riding on a cloud without being puffy. Thanks Rapha :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great female Bib shorts I bought my first Souplesse Bib for a while ago and love to wear them. I have a smal comment and that is the bib could have been little bit thicker for long rides. Light and soft to wear, have a nice female cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ride hard all day The Souplesse are my favourite style of shorts. The chamois is super comfy for long rides and the material used and the cut have more of a 'compression' fit than the classic shorts, making them great for harder riding. Also, they breathe well on hot days. Only issue is the bibs are a touch short for me (as I'm quite long in the torso), so need to stretch them a bit - fortunately they do give with wearing in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my best bib shorts These are the best bib shorts I've owned. The fit is better than my other Rapha shorts, the fabric feels supportive but not restricting, and best of all they look superb.

What is the sizing around the hips and leg openings?

Asked by: Vanessa
Hi, we don't give these measurements as they don't give an accurate representation of the way bib shorts fit. The material is high stretch and so accommodates a large variety of hip and leg sizes. Please base your size on your waist measurement. I hope that helps.
