I've been wearing PI stuff pretty much my entire time on the bike. I'm right in between 1x and 2x. My body shape is kind of difficult to deal with - while I am at 235lb I still have a lot of fat around my gut and thighs. I wear a size 42" jean, for example, and not every style of Levi will fit - I can't fit in to 42" 501s, for example.
I worry that 2x is a little too loose and that 1x is a bit too tight. I'm hoping/trying to keep moving down and I don't want to waste money on gear that I'm going to shrink out of. But I also don't want to bust a seam out there.
So does anyone have advice on how to handle this? I need to get some more bibs (I have one pair right now). I'd love to have 2 pairs so that I can wear bibs on both my Saturday and Sunday rides. I just can't decide if I should keep going with 2X or give 1X a try.
