Felt cheap, not for the big of booty...
- I returned this product before using it
The straps felt too thin and like they'd tear. This was my first pair of Pearl Izumi bibs and it just didn't fit my body right. I'm 5' 4" 130 lb, pretty proportionate but with buns on the "peachier" side. They tugged and just didn't cover the backside enough. I was surprised that PI touts these as being women-specific when this would really fit a man or rail-thin woman much better. Sizing up wasn't an option as the top half would have been way too loose and it's not adjustable.

- I've used it several times
I desperately wanted to love these shorts, but because they are meant to be toilet-friendly, the straps are too stretchy, as is the waistband. The waistband in the back is too low, too. When I stretch out on my bike I feel like my back is about to be exposed. And since the waistband is so stretchy and light I feel like there's nothing there, and the straps don't feel like they're doing anything. And if I want to try to use the pockets, the force pulls down the shorts because the straps are too stretchy. I will say that the shorts ARE potty-friendly, and I recognize there needs to be a compromise, but I think this went too far in the stretchy direction.
