Castelli BodyPaint Women's Bib Shorts $0.00
The next step, or pedal stroke, in performance.
Castelli re-engineered its Women's BodyPaint Bib Short for a better fit, more comfortable bib straps, and aerodynamics. As part of Castelli's Rosso Corsa collection, this distance-oriented piece represents the cutting edge in cycling innovation in both shorts and chamois technology.
The BodyPaint Shorts feature a single piece of knit Power Stretch Lycra fabric to offer optimal fit and moisture management during long rides. The use of a single piece of fabric eliminates seams and chafing associated with them, making these shorts lighter with better stretch. Up grading from the original BodyPaint shorts, aerodynamic dimples on the legs reduce drag on the fabric, perfect for your local time trial series. Mesh inserts on the back add ventilation, adding to the moisture transfer feature in the Lycra to keep you cool. Elastic gripper along the bottom hem keeps the shorts in place with a Castelli Sublimation-printed logo around the leg opening.
Seamless straps feature GIRO2 compression band to stimulate circulation and enhance fit through the bibs. Sitting higher on your back, the straps sit closer in on your shoulders so you don't have to worry about them sliding around as you ride.
The new Progetto X2 Donna takes its structural design from the men's chamois of the same name, which is also worn by the Garmin-Cervelo Pro team. The woman-specific seamless chamois features a four-way-stretch, antibacterial layer for comfort and odor resistance. Multi-density foam padding is placed where you need it, under your sit bones, for better protection on long rides without unnecessary padding where you don't need it. Perforated viscous comfort inserts add ventilation and padding in highly sensitive ishial and perineal areas to increase the breathability.
Reflective Castelli graphic increases visibility and safety when your ride takes you into the night. The Castelli Women's BodyPaint Bib Shorts come in Black. Sizes run X-Small through X-Large.
Note: Castelli has a "Euro" slimmer fit. We suggest ordering at least one size larger than your normal US size.

See through potential
These fit well and are comfortable, but on my second ride with them (in a group ride) I was told they were see through. Not good for brand new expensive bibs, and I went with the sizing chart also, so they should not have been overstretched. Ah well. Time to try another.
Love the fit and comfort of the chamois...but....
I have had 3 pairs develop tears in the chamois and along other seams so far and that's after 3 or 4 rides each. For the price, they should last much longer.
You don't need to look any further!
OMG! OMG! OMG! I had no idea what I was missing. My boyfriend is a big cyclist and new I was not enjoying our longer rides because of the shorts I was wearing. I tried so many different styles and brands at numerous bike shops all over our area. I was lost. He pushed me to get a bib and to look at Castelli's. When I read the reviews on this bib and saw the return policy I had to give it a try. My only complaint is that I didn't get it sooner. The weekend after I received it we did 40 miles of climbing and I was so comfortable. I will be buying a second one.

Finally, an XS that's actually XS! Giordana was too big, and I hate to say it, but these fit even nicer than my Assos. Wore these on a double a few weeks ago and never even noticed them. They don't move and are supremely comfortable.
