Now my thighs do not look like the All Blacks, but they are large and muscled. So large and muscled that my current shorts are becoming too tight and are starting to come apart at the seams. My current shorts are not expensive, space age shorts. They are REI brand cause it is what I could afford.
I am looking to get a few more pairs and would like some assistance. I commute and may start to race.
I have no experience with bibs, just shorts. If one is perceived to be "better" than the other please let me know.

Bibs > Shorts.
I don't think your shorts are coming apart because your legs are too big, I think it's either because they're too cheap or too small.
Regardless, Performance's high end and Voler make the best standard bibs out there for the $. Don't get hung up on the $200+ offerings out there. I don't doubt that they're somehow better than normal stuff, but you aren't missing out on anything magical.
