Hi I am looking to buy some Assos bib tights and was unsure as to what size to get. I am the lowest height for the M tights (170cm) or the highest for the S (169cm).

My question should I go for the S or M? I doubt they would look baggy at all, the only thing I can think of is extra material around the waist in the M?

The S would most likey be far too tight?

    fab - ask for help but include nothing about your waist or build!?

    Assos always suggest going by height only. If you are right at the top end I'd go up. Unless you are a tin ribs.

    5' 7" with a 30" waist and I wear an M in Assos bib shorts. Legs are too short for tights though :-(

    No idea re Assos. I never buy bib tights because of the short legs and an experince with a pair of dhb's. I wear bib shorts and leg warmers. t607 Assos bibs in the winter.

    You could buy both and return the ones that do not fit. That way you will not have doubt if you have made the right choice and know in future what size you are in assos. Make sure the seller accepts returns, assos are expensive its important you get the sizing right. Btw 5 8 and 33 waist and the one pair of assos is in a medium with room, think you might be a small.
