Help from the women ...please (clothing advice)
My wife and I are both extra large cyclists. I have been riding for decades so I am used to lycra, etc. My wife however has been reluctant to ride. I finally bought her a woman's bike that really fits (Specialized Dolce) and now she is excited about riding.
My question how can I help my wife find comfortable cycling clothes. She has a Mt Borah Jersey and Pearl Izumi shoes but I don't know what to do about shorts. She has a large stomach (and thankfully doesn't read this forum
). I bought her a pair of Terry shorts in her size but she found the elastic across her stomach uncomfortable. She has not actually ridden in padded shorts but she finds them uncomfortable in the dressing room.
Does anyone have suggestions? Baggy shorts perhaps? Brands? Vendors?
Any advice would be appreciated.
