    I'm 5'8, 30/31 inch waist and 63kg.

    I went for a Medium which fit perfectly; I reckon you'd be the same or maybe 1 size up.

    Have to say though, I'm not blown away - lovely quality, but just feel a bit bulky and restrictive to me compared to my Castelli Free Aeros.....

    I'm 5'8" about 79kg and normally wear a medium bib short with large size top. My Assos Cento shorts are a medium too and quite a snug fit but as above, the pad is quite bulky. Been on a couple of rides to try them out and while the pad is effective in preventing a numb bum, there's a seam that tends to rub in the crease of my leg/thigh. Not really what I would expect for a £200 pair of bib shorts. I applied bag balm on the second ride and its better but still...

    6'0, 32" waist, 34" inside, 72kg I went with large.

    The chaffing on the leg goes away after a ride or two. I think they just need to be worn in. Shouldn't need it, but once done they're great.

    Thanks - second ride was a big improvement on the first, and its their third ride Sunday for 10+ hours in the saddle. Will apply bag balm liberally and hope my crotch isn't cut to pieces!
