|Help with Euro bib sizing question...||MVN|
Sep 21, 2002 9:10 PM
|I just got a 2002 Lotto jersey from bikejerseys.com. It fits great. Their sizing chart says a size 7 bib is for a 41"-44" waist (I'm a 38), and a 6 is for a 38"-40" waist. The chart on ProBikeKit.com's site says a 7/XXXL is for 36"-38" waist. Hank's chart specifically says "for Nalini bibs", whereas the other doesn't. I'm not sure which size to order. Can someone help me out? I was going to order Lotto bibs from LaBicicletta but the only size they had was a 7, which I thought was a 41-44 waist. I ended up not ordering them because I was unsure about the sizing. What is the true American equivalent of a size 6 and 7 euro cut bib short? Which chart is correct? My measurements (if it helps) are 5'10", 195, 42" chest, 38" waist. Thanks in advance.|

|runs slightly smaller (1/2 size at most) than Santini, not enough to make a big difference. Stick with Hank, he has it right for fit on euro kit.|

|My waist is 35" and the size 6 are a little loose. They bag in the back. I thinks that the sizes change slightly from year to year and it is a crap shoot....good luck|

|It's all pretty random, even between shirts from the same maker.
I have things that fit the same sized 6,7,8, XL,XXL,XXXL. on top of that my old waterproof jacket was a M, and my new replacement is an XXL - it's a fraction bigger.
As far as I am aware, there is no "standard" whatsoever.
