    Go to Terrybicycle.com. They have a great line of plus size clothing but frankly you should be able to wear an L or XL in knickers. I am an size 18 and generally buy a L.

    Another good website is teamestrogen.com.

    Any more pics of the lady on that bike?
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    Isn't "non-dorky knickers" an oxymoron?

    I think by "non-dorky" she means something casual that you could wear off the bike. "Dorky" would be like standard roadie lycra I imagine.

    Isn't there a women's forum? You could try there.

    Had a look at the Terry site - try http://www.terrybicycles.com/detail.html?item_no=5091 - looks kind of like what you want.
    As Tom says try www.aerotechdesigns.com for regular cycling clothes, though I guess you might think them a bit "dorky"!
    I'm in the UK and you can't buy big cycling clothes for women over here at all, I've used aerotech and they shipped stuff over here no problem and at reasonable cost, so I'm a bit of a fan.

    (Off topic, but I couldn't help myself)
    Depends on you country of origin, like, "Don't get your knickers in a bunch."
    Of course seeing a woman riding down the street in that kind of knickers would definitely be interesting.

    I know it's late in the game, but perhaps some ladies are still looking for items like this now. Check out this website - it features sportswear for a range of different activities, including cycling, up to a size 4x. I just came across it. Happy shopping!

    Thanks, knifegirl1, it's never too late in the game. Whether it helps the OP, or another person, it still helps.

    Can you sew? I'm going to make these into non-dorky cycling knickers. I've already made one pair out of corduroy for a costume. I had to expand the pieces because the large is not big enough for me, but it's pretty easy.
