" Love everything about it. I am a 12 to 14 and ordered the medium. It is just right - just - if you are closer to 14 or concious of too much on display then I would go up a size. Shelf bra is great for low impact but I can fit my racer back sports bra on underneath too for running. Would love to see more of the red 2XU. "
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit

" I bought these after borrowing a pair from a friend to trial...having already purchased several pairs to replace my beloved Pearl Izumis that wore out from overuse. I find many shorts comfy to try on but you need 50 miles on them to know if they are going to be any good. By the time youve done 50 miles and found out they are not going to be any good its too late to send them back. I have not been getting on with the trend for gel pads with contours cut in them. These Assos are more like the chammis of old - a big soft cushion under your bum. The waist is slightly dropped (beware big bellies). The leg grips are comfy and once you are squidged in and settled they fit like a glove.
I wore mine for the first time on Sunday and did 65 miles in the Chilterns. They were super comfy the whole way around - cannot say the same for the Sugois that I bought at the same time and wore for 60 last week. Expensive game this cycling. If they were cheaper I would buy a second pair.
I'm usually a 12 to 14 and I bought medium.

Pros: Durable, Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit

" Loving these little lights. I bought both front and rear and find them quick and easy to fit and remove. It did take me a while to work out how to turn off the 'try me' feature - despite the instructions. Also my pathetically weak hands do struggle to operate the on/off (just done by pushing the bulb mecanism in). One problem has arisen, the small bit that you push in to adjust the grip on the elastic has broken off. Despite all these 'issues' I still love them an will be replacing the broken one (even though it is still useable). SO much easier than normal lights to fit. "

Assos vs Sugoi sizing

Sorry to ask yet another sizing question. I have been wearing small Sugoi shorts, great fit. Pearl mediums are too big. Does that still equate to a small Assos? I am right in the middle for hips on the size chart between small and medium, but a small on the height.
I just bought Medium Assos and Sugoi and they both fit me about the same. If you are happy with your Sugois then I would go for the same size in Assos. For the record - I prefer the Assos.
