Assos FI 13 Bib Shorts

Hey guys, I am looking to buy these bib shorts and looking to see if anyone can offer a bit of input, I am on the shorter side and im big Anyways the sizes on these bibs say that for my height I should get a medium...my worry is that they won't be big enough in the waist...any input?

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

They're quite stretchy. If they don't fit, exchange up to the next size, but very likely, they will fit fine

I have always had a problem with the length of the Assos bib shorts. It seems like the shoulder straps do not stretch anywhere near what the Giordona or Hincapie shorts stretch. The only reason that I bring that up is that if you do have a large mid-section, it could make the bib shorts too short and they are not cheap...
