|Bib tights sizes?||Matno|

|I'm pretty sure I don't want a bib that's too short, but the only sizes in my height are for a much larger waist size. I don't think I'm all that unusual (skinny, yes, but lots of bikers are skinny). I am 5'10" with a 31-32 inch waist (at least that's what size all my shorts are). I fit "medium" bike shorts perfectly, but looking at bib tights, those made to fit a 5'10" man also fit a 35-36" waist. Anyone have any suggestions as to where I can find tights that will fit?
I realize that I could also just get non-bib tights. Are there pros and cons to that route as well?

|I'm 5'11" with a 30" waist. I usually wear large regular and bib shorts. They fit me fine but then I guess I prefer a loose wasteband. The material is plenty elastic enough to fit tightly around my middle.|
|Just make sure they fit your torso and you'll be fine (nm)||TrekFurthur|

|The problem with ordering stuff online is that I can't make sure of anything personally before I order. I don't want tights that are going to be too long or too short at the ankles. I guess it's not all that important whether they are tight around the waist, but baggy is a bad thing. Maybe I'll just ask Lance, he's really close to my height and weight...|

|I let my friends talk me into buying bib shorts for the first time last year. I don't like them. They cost more, they are a little hot and can make a bathroom break more difficult than it needs to be. This will be especially true with bib tights, everytime you stop to take a leak, off comes the jacket, and the jersey.
Also, sometimes you may want to remove tights if the day heats up a lot. I think a better option are no-chamois tights over regular shorts.
