Hey guys My partner has slowly introduced me to a bit of mountain biking, I've now got myself a second had Gt Avalanche an awesome fox helmet and jersey but I've no comfy bottoms to wear! I'd love some baggy shorts but being a woman I've got big hips and a big butt! is there anywhere that caters for the curvier ladies? Thanks

    For my lighter duty (road or mild off road) I use Azore baggy shots, readily available on ebay for less than a tenner, they are not waterproof but are lightweight, fairly comfy and have lots of usable pockets - also dry very quickly if they get wet.

    Despite being a bloke I get the ladies ones as....
    1/ they are cheaper
    2/ They fit me well as I have a big backside and a relatively slim waist (size 14-16 dare I say - the 12-14 fit but are a big 'snug')

    If you want something a bit more hardcore then no advice really I'm afraid.

    I may never let you forget that you are a man in a ladies body.

    Forbessie007 - have a look at Endura. They do a nice range of women's clothing.
    My wife wears the Humvee shorts. She and thinks they are great. A good fit and comfortable.
