Tights for tall ladies

Postby Bokareader » Wed Oct 10, 2018 18:39 pm

Just coming into my first winter cycling and finding it hard to source long bibs/tights.

Measuring 25/36/35” waist/hips/inseam..

Recently invested in Castelli legwarmers and they’re cracking, but haven’t really been put to the test yet. They’re certainly long enough, which is unusual since their tights aren’t.. but I’m not sure how they’ll hold up in an eastern Scottish winter. Any recommendations on longer tights?

Should have read your post properly. Though my original post on leg length bib tights matched, not so good on others. Oh well...

I suppose a shorter than ideal length would leave your tights like a pair of 3/4 Nicks?
Can you find some nice warm and long Merino socks to make up the for the 'shortfall'?
Leg wise, a pair that leaves you 2" short (with no foot hoop) could be covered. ...and you can get some decent shoe covers too!

What's available in the men's sizes that you think would look okay on you?

Also, have a look at these. (I really like Wiggle's own DHB brand). Click on the size guide. Not available in Black at the moment but available in Navy.
