Ladies bibs

Having finally got my other half interested in cycling :D she needs some cold weather gear.
She's looking to get some Roubaix bib tights to save the 'bunching' issue of multiple clothing around the waist.
Problem is she is 5 foot nothing, so what fits her up top (medium) would be too long in the leg.

Anyone out there got around this problem somehow?
Or even could recommend/advise on a make/model that fits well for someone of that height.

    I believe that Lusso will alter their products to fit if you ask them, I think they charge £10 extra

    I know Shutt do alterations to the jersey's maybe worth a call to them, they are a small company and really really nice. They do have women spec range including short pads, my wife has the ladies shorts and loves them.

    We had a twitter friend comment on these today actually saying they were top!
    I've used our gents bibs, and i can imagine the womens are equally as good!

    Also, stick SVR10 in at checkout to get some money off them... You didn't hear it from me. 8)
