Cycling shorts for a cyclist with a big stomach
Some time ago I strated a thread about buying a fitness bike. I didn't get any replies, but in the meantime I changed my mind and decided I want to buy a road bike. I still have to wait untill the end of the month to have the money, but I'm already thinking about what accessories to buy to start out. Most important for me are a helmet and bike shorts. The latter being a bit of a problem since I'm a bit overweight...
I searched this forum, I searched Google, but I only found threads about bike shorts for really obese people. In my case; I'm 5'8" and around 198 lbs. However, my face, arms and legs are kind of regular, with most of the fat sitting around waist/stomach. I have a typical "beerbelly" (which is ironic, since I don't even drink beer!), and since regular bike shorts are worn under the navel, they will probably roll off (I alway wear pants with the waist right under my stomach, wich offcourse wouldn't be possible with bike shorts).
So I've been looking at bibs, but I don't know if the material is stretchy enough for my stomach, while sitting normally around my crotch/hips/legs..? My thighs are around 34.5", while my waist is 46.9, so is it possible for me to wear bibs, or should I look for an alternative? Or are there maybe regular bikeshorts that sit around the navel?
