My thighs and legs are bigger than for most people at my height. Many cycling tights cut into my leg just where the end below the knee. I have a pair of old Gore tights which were the most comfortable pants I could find. Are these as stretchy?

The Contest Lady 3/4 does have stretch but I think that you would find the Power Lady 3/4 to have more stretch Dave-GORE BIKE WEAR™

Another very comfortable and yet top performance knicker is Giordana's "Silverline" line up. Silverline is more 'forgiving' in the fit/shape dept., while in no way being sloppy. For the intermediate rider, with a little less compression than a 'race fit', and not quite a 'lean/tight as a race fit; so they won't cut into your legs, ever, yet stay in place. The jerseys are very nice, and quite stylish, too...nothing wrong with that!
