Assos bib shorts fit?

Hi All,
I'm considering buying some Assos bib shorts but wondered what their fit is like as they may be very race fit small in comparison to other makes. I'm 178cm (5'10") 76kg (12st 2lb). The Assos website states Medium but I'm wondering if a Large is likely to be a better fit.
Any advice is appreciated as I tend not to buy High end clothing so I'm at a loss on sizing.
Regards
T.

    Yes I thought medium didn't sound right.
    I'm 32waist 32 inside leg.
    Do you think L or XL?

    I’m 30” inside leg and large is probably slightly long for me but I do have a medium pair which feel short and I end up doing a Quasimodo impression due the length of the bib straps.
    I tend to be large in everything cycle clothing wise, Rapha shorts and tops, Castelli tops ( never tried their shorts) and everything Assos.
  • Hmm, I’m 6’ tall, a 33” waist and about 80 kg, and I find medium in Assos fits fine. Does depend on which model though - in the (old) Mille bibs which are *not* race cut, I found the large just too loose. Also have some Uno series in M which are snug but absolutely fine on the bike.

    In the more race-oriented versions a Large is good though

    I am same size as OP, but slightly heavier and medium works for me. Order pair of M and L and send the one back that doesn't seem right. As with most Assos it what works on the bike.

    178cm (5'10"), 68kg have 3 pairs. S5 uno and 2 pairs Mille, medium is perfect for me. I am a large in Castelli and some others but I would say Assos are what I would call true to size.

    I have small in the millie and medium in the t equipe. The ones that state racing fit are definitely racier and I take the same size as in castelli and sportful. I'm 5'8" and 68kg.

    Hi.
    Do any of you have the newer models that have the lower waist? I have older pairs and I like the higher back.
    Wondered how new and old compare?
    Thanks

    Hi, I bought s7 mille version last year. 183cm 85kg, I bought large. I think they are a little big fitting, wear large in all others apart from xl in castelli. Hope helps
