Bibshorts sizing.

Just wondering how Altura sizing compares to Giordana bibshorts.

I've got a set of Giordana bibshorts, and i've wearing a Large. Would this translate to a Medium Altura size? I'm thinking of getting the ergofit Pro bibshorts. (As it looks like the tenax is now discontinued???)

I'm thinking of ordering a set off the internet so knowing how the sizings are would help! If i still can't make my mind up, i'll have to order a set and hope they fit.

Or, what other bibshorts are there around the £70 that are good?

    In my experience, Giordana is sized very small- at least one size up from "normal " and possibly two.

    But yes, a L Gio may well be a M equivalent in Altura

    Why not double check with the altura size chart ... 00/100.pdf

    I would agree, I'm large in Assos but medium in other brands. I say go for medium.

    Cheers guys.

    I've looked at size guides before, and half the time the sizings are totally different!

    I'll order a medium, and hope for the best :D

    Altura sizing is a joke, I wouldn't use that as a guide! I'm a medium in Italian shorts but a small in Altura hangs off me! (30inch waist 5ft7) Giordana and all the other Italian brands are nice fitting though.

    Im 5'11 32 waist and medium is the right call for me with Altura.

    Personally I'd avoid Altura bibs anyway...
