Top-drawer shorts.

If Castelli's Body Paint 2.0 Women's Bib Shorts feel like they were made for pros, it's because they were. Originally developed for, and exhaustively tested by, the Garmin-Cervelo team, the Body Paint is a sleek, form fitting, and moisture wicking piece of kit, comfortable enough to wear for day-long rides and fast enough to take onto the race course.

To eliminate chafing, Castelli cut the shorts from a single piece of fabric, eliminating the possibility of chafing seams. Breathable, wicking fabric is also finished with invisible dimples, which reduce drag (think of dimpled golf balls), and has a wide leg gripper for a sleek aero fit that won't grab any air. Just as importantly, the seriously snug fit supports your muscles to reduce road vibrations, which lead to fatigue.

The bibs themselves, which Castelli calls Giro2, are also made of a single strip of stretchy, non-binding mesh that won't dig in or cause sweat to build up. Even more important, though, is the Progetto X2 chamois, a women's-specific insert with a perforated foam layer to allow air movement and increase cooling and evaporation. The surface of the Progetto X2 is made from a seamless bacteriostatic fabric that prevents the growth of odor-causing bacteria, and the padding is a combination of multi-density foam and viscous inserts to take pressure off of sensitive areas.

  • Seamless single-piece construction
  • Mesh bibs
  • Leg gripper band
  • Breathable and moisture-wicking fabric
  • Progetto X2 Air insert
  • Compressive fit

Not really bib shorts

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

I decided to try these because I love my Body Paint shorts, but I have recently discovered the comforts of bibs. The size, fit, and fabric are great, just like the shorts. However, the design is more like shorts with straps, not truly bibs. They even sorta have a waistband -- what's the point of the straps, then??? I'm sending them back, with hope that Castelli will redesign.

how true is the sizing? is a medium a 8-10?

Responded on

I'm typically a 4-6 US women's. The small was too small (fit ok, but totally see-through). I went up to a medium. Very comfortable, though still a little see-through.

Wife loves them

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My wife is very critical about about biking clothes. Its too tight, not tight enough, it makes me look fat, etc. After almost giving up biking because of the emotional pain and suffering the whining was causing me, i decided to buy her these shorts. I am glad i did! They run small so size up 1 size. These will feel tight when you put them on but will loosen up. My opinion is most women tend to buy bibs that are too big. They should almost feel too tight before you start riding. if you have not worn bibs then you should try a pair. an added benefit of bibs is they cover your stomach and sides. no more muffin top!
