    Earlier this year I was a part of a women's cycling clinic that was sponsored, in part, by Shredly, a company that makes fun cycling shorts for women with some pretty cool designs.
    One of my friends, Laura, won a pair of their shorts in a raffle, which she loves.

    Now I see Cycology, a site that has some cool designs for women cycling jerseys.
    This stuff is really fun!

    Knew about Shredly, don't own any, but think they look cool. But those Cycology items are way cool!

    To be honest, about Shredly, I think they would fit you well because you're tiny, but for someone who is more "full figured" like me, they are a little snug in the hips.

    I haven't tried any Cycology stuff, but I like the look and the pocket in the back of the jersey.

    I like the fun prints. Dude Girl out of Larkspur has fun designs too.

    wow, suzy would never wear any of that stuff.

    She's more of a 7mesh kinda gal.

    I like the brighter colors and prints for road, but the understated look of 7mesh is nice for mtn.

    Isn't 7Mesh made by lulu lemon?
    I have looked at their stuff but the fit is a little off for me.
    I tend to like stuff that is curvy ;)

    I don't think anyone would mistake suzy for being "lithe". She's pretty curvy, albeit a bit fitter than most at ~10% body fat.

    She wears XL shorts, S jersey, and a size 8 bra.

    Lulu invested in 7mesh, they are not the primary owner.

    Most "high end" cycling clothing is all the same cut--Kitsbow, Pearl Izumi Black, Rapha, Hincapie, Assos, etc.

    More the "recreational" clothing like Shredly, cycology, Terry, sugoi, etc tend to be a more "generous" fit.

    VERY similar to ski clothing.

    Descente, Spyder (race collection stuff), Mountain Force, Kjus, Bogner (pretty much anything you'd find at Gorsuch in aspen!) is the closer fit.

    @Tricia you may want to give lululemon another shot, they adjusted all their sizing in the last year-year and a half to include a more "curvy" fit a la Athleta.

    Suzy is one of the most buff women I know.

    Sizing cracks me up.
    I wear a size 6 jeans, but I'm in a Large cycle shorts liner.
    Makes me wonder what the really large girls wear.

    I'm a little heavier than I was, that's why I'm loving my bib shorts!

    A local shop, NYC Velo, has some really well designed bike wear. I'm not a Road Cyclist, but I'm still contemplating getting the floral jersey because I like it so much. I can wear it on my commutes!

    Here are some other cool ones. Might get the totem jacket while I'm at it:

    I have an NYCvelo jersey the I received as a gift a few years ago! I'm not a fan of pink, usually, but I like that pink and black one.
