Uncomfortable spine pressure weird strap
- I've put it through the wringer
- True to size

I love the Assos T'Laalalai women's bib shorts and have 2 pair. I thought I would try these Dyora summer bibs as they are the latest design and I live in a hot, humid climate. I thought they might be even better than the T'Laalalai. My DH likes the men's and I researched and was aware the women's have a different strap style with the rear straps being looped and sewn in farther down the short, nearer the pad. I was worried they would show under the jersey and look weird. Turn out that doesn't happen or bother me but I hate the feel of the straps pulling down on my shoulders and compressing my spine. I have worn them indoor, outdoors, short and long rides and I still do not like how they feel. I don't have a great lumbar spine and they just feel like they compress my L-3-4-5 vertebrae at all times. I am 5'2" & 110 lbs and got the small which is what I usually wear and they seem true to Assos size chart. My torso is short as I take a less than 16" backpack size so it's not a long torso creating the feel but could be due to my spine not enjoying downward force on my vertebral discs even when I'm aero, horizontal on the bike. I do not like the front styling, front panel looks weird is a bit short. I also worry the straps creating these stretchy loops over your back and rear could get me pulled off the bike in a tight or tangled situation with another rider's handlebars, although it is unlikely, it worries me. Why this weird butt loops, Assos's, for women but not men? The actual chamois and rear padding are fine. The bibs are nicely compressive similar to T'Laalalai and the grey pad is nice. I should have returned them but I tried so hard to like them and get used to them. If you like the T'Laalalai, don't bother to get these, they are not an upgrade, at least not for my body.

Think I prefer the T.Laala's
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Runs small
- Size Bought
- 5` 3"
These are my second pair of Assos bibs. I bought the T.LaalaLaiShorts_S7 Lady Bib Shorts - Women's a few months ago and they are incredibly comfortable but the over-the-head straps are a little odd so I thought I would try these. These bibs seem to run a little smaller and the chamois feels thicker. It's also been slower to break in (felt a bit like wet cardboard the other day). Not sure what the difference in chamois is and these will likely be comfortable in time but I didn't have the same a-ha moment.

What is the leg length (inches) for these bibs?
