+1000 I won't wear anything but bibs. Most people I know who ride won't either. If you're the bashful sort, just wear your normal shorts over the bibs.

I almost forgot about L2P! My favourite jersey is from him/them.

you definately need to try bibs if you havent already. Like stated there is no actual waist part so you would most likely fit the ones recomended or even try aerotech designs. This is there sizing.

Aero Tech BibShort 5XL
Men's Waist 54-56
Inseam (inches) 10 1/2

Bikejerseys.com has some nice deals on bibs and plain jerseys if people are interested.. He puts the chest and waist sizes right in the ad and have found them to be very accurate..

Your body shape also determines what you like in shorts. My family comes from the "Glutaeus-Maximus" and "big-leg" side of the human evolution tree. Bibs tend to either fit me WAY TOO TIGHT in the upper-thigh to..."junk" sections; or if I buy them big enough for my butt and legs, the straps are so loose that they fall off my shoulders. I had one pair that fit my legs,but the stomach was so loose that I had to be careful when I bent over while standing (can you say "full exposure?")
