Sizing Information for Lusso Clothing
I ordered large and I was very dissoppointed. By sizing I should have ordered large according to height (178 cm) but medium with respect to waist.
Be aware of that, you should consider your waist size before your height. (84 cm waist that I have)
I did not really like padding; it is too rigid and dont strecth in every direction.
Good quality stiches but poor pad quality
Top quality product, perfect fit and super comfatable from a quality English manufactuer, aligned to Merlins great pricing and service what more is there to want. Totally fully recommend this product
I love the pad on these shorts... nice, thick and squishy. Material of the shorts looks and feels quality. I'm 5'11'' and around 88kg and the large is perfect for me. Only down side (and I'm being I'm being picky now) is that the material covering the pad that comes in contact with your skin started pilling after my very first ride. These are the shorts I use the most, I'm washing them everyday to re-use.
These shorts must be ordered at least one size bigger than expected. I am 5ft7ins medium build and ordered XL, which was still too small - I had to return the item, since I anticipated XXL would be too big. Apart from this sizing issue the quality is good, especially the insert.
Excellent quality. Perfect fit using the size guide. No more pain in the ass on 3 to 4 hour rides
Excellent shorts! They atre more comfortable than shorts I have that cost over twice as much. Merlin's is hard to beat!
Perfect fit, exactly as size chart. Ordering a second one for sure. Used it on few short and indoor training so far a comfortable bib.
Usual great service from Merlin, delivered next day free of charge. First ever Lusso product and certainly wont be the last. The size guide is spot on 5' 7" , 32" waist and medium fits perfectly, perfect leg length, not too short like some shorts are. The silicon leg grippers work very well, the shorts stay in place and dont ride up at all. The pad is probably the best i have ever encountered, on a par with Assos/Sportful total comfort, if not better.For the price they are unbeatable, you can have two pairs of these and still have some change compared to some other brands. When the time comes to get some new bibshorts I won`t hesitate to buy these again.
Good value, good fit - I found the size chart to be a good indicator. Quality seems fine. Just not quite as good as some of the expensive brands but then they are half the price. Overall very happy
Always buy Lusso shorts, great fit and quality. Made in the UK as well.
Good quality bib shorts with a very large and comfortable pad. I would say the sizing guide is accurate as I have found to be between sizes but that is my own fault for not choosing a larger size. Overall happy though
Comfy, good fit, thoroughly recommend.
These are an excellent pair of bib shorts. Very well made with flat seams, silicon leg grippers and using the latest version of Teosport's gel pad for real all day comfort.
Sizing is true to the guide and at Merlin's prices they really are a steal. I now own four pairs, need I say more !
First time I have purchased a Lusso product, the Bib shorts were recommended to me by a cycling friend. These are without doubt the best pair of cycling shorts I have had so far.
Pretty comfy so far - lots of panels so the fit is good around your butt and legs - padding on chamois is decent and no chafing but haven't had a long ride on them yet. Leg grippers are wide so overlap my knee pads when I'm on my MTB but don't get in the way too much - I wear these under my baggies! My pot belly is hidden by the front bib which is a bit high for toilet breaks but otherwise holds everything in. Overall quality looks good so hoping they'll last.
Excellent. Really good fitting shorts. Large comfortable pad, good on long rides. And great value too. Dispatched very promptly. Recommended
Great fitting shorts straight out of the bag. Good compression in the legs and a good length (not too short like some others I have tried)
A good thick pad - that is better after a wash! Overall very impressed
Club des Cingles
Super price for the shorts, which were a great fit and comfortable 75mile ride in them on first outing. Delivery was excellent and within the stated time. would definitely buy again
Bought these to replace the Lusso bib shorts I bought 6 years ago which have been superb. Judging by the two 70 mile rides wearing these so far, they will be just as good on long rides, and made in Britain too!
I've worn these shorts for a couple of 100km rides and found them really comfy. The sizing is spot on, I'm 5'6" and 10 stone and small fitted a treat. Bargin at this price
Fast delivery, excellent item. Ridden in them twice now, about 60 miles so far. Found them comfortable and the pad does its job and I've suffered no problems with it all. Great service, great pricing, will happily order another another pair.
Much better than I anticipated having never seen/felt these bib shorts in person. The padding is remarkable. The fit is excellent and exactly as described in the sizing chart. I'm about to order another pair right now!
Prompt delivery from Merlin. I ordered medium , I am 5'10" 12st8 and 32"waist, 42"chest. Fitted perfectly. First ride out 54miles and very comfortable. Easy to slide on some running tights for early warmth.
Very comfy pad, good fit for me, seem well made and great price
Excellent fit, very comfortable
Bibs fit was very comfortable. Pad was just the right thickness.
Mr M from Adelaide
These bib shorts fit well and Im 6ft 3in tall. I bought the medium as I wanted a tighter fit. I will say though that the legs are a little short. Overall top quality though.
Only used on the rollers so far, but very comfortable
Very Comfortable, big gel pad & longer leg to just above the knee. A very good fit & exactly as per sizing guide.
Good quality and very comfortable. Easily as good if not better than much more expensive Italian branded bibs. Use these regularly on rides of 50-100 miles. Very comfortable and no problems.
Excellent quality, good fit, and very comfortable.
5'-10", 180lbs, 33"~34" waist so I went for a medium since the reviews said its a bit generous on fabric. Fits perfect. Will need to test the pad out on a longer ride but so far I am very happy with the farbic, stitching, fit and price.
Great fit and good comfort and support from the chamois.
Great pair of shorts, comfortable and no chafing. Excellent for the price.
Perfect fit. Excellent value for money. Most comfortable bib shorts I have ever bought.
Very good quality. Pro-gel pad is a thick and comfortable. I am 6 foot @ 82kg. Ordered the size M which fits excellent. Good value for money.
Excellent all round product and value for money. The padding is thick and took a few miles to get used to but that's the only very minor negative.
Comfy as can be. Sizing as it should be. Great piece of kit :-)
Great fitting shorts, generous sizing felt really comfy on 1st ride of 45 miles
I have bib shorts from Altura and dhb. These Lusso bib shorts are, in my opinion, far superior in terms of comfort and quality. I have a 34 mile daily commute and now experience no discomfort whatsoever. The service from Merlin was first class. Ordered the shorts one day and received them the next.
I rode my first 3 centuries in Lusso Pro Gel shorts, comfortable, well-made and long lasting. What's not to like?
I looked at a number of mid-price bibshorts and was concerned about sizing and quality. I spotted these on offer and looked up the Lusso website to confirm their UK credentials. I am 6'1" with a 37" waist and 90kg (too big) and considered the xl but bought large. It is tight but actually after a few rides is now settling in well. The leg grippers are just right, the pad works well and overall I am very pleased. I have covered about 150 miles so far but nothing over 35 miles. On the performance so far, quality is very good, fit is excellent and I would have no qualms about trying them on longer rides. Merlin service is, as usual, excellent.
Was very happy with the product, increase in comfort over my previous bib shorts. However, they lost an argument between a stone wall an HGV and my bike on their third outing and are deceased having been cut off.
I could have possibly gone for a medium, 6feet/13.5 stone.
Took them out on a 60 mile ride today, very hilly ride in the Cotswolds. These shorts are incredibly comfy and performed excellently. Well worth the investment
Excellent quality for the money. Very comfortable and well made - I was impressed enough to buy a second pair.
Highly recommended. (Rapid delivery too - thanks Merlin)
Great shorts. Great fit. Fit as sized. Big pad that takes a bit of getting used to. Great price for the quality.
I am very pleased with the fit and quality of my Lusso Pro Gel 2 Bibshorts. Having looked at the sizing chart I was a bit bigger round the waist than the Large suggested but went with it anyway because al the other sizing info was correct for me. I had no need to worry because there is plenty of room around the waist and they fit very well all over. I am 5'11" tall, 41-42 chest, 13 stone 10 and have a 36" waist. The large was a good fit. I had read some reviews saying the sizing is a bit generous. Nice quality shorts with a good comfortable pad. I would recommend them.
2nd pair i've bought, a really comfortable short that's not too tight. I'm a 32 waist and size medium is spot on.
Typical Lusso quality. Well made, good fit. Very comfy pad and the bib straps are a nice width.
Other reviews mention needing to go a size up. Followed the advice and the fit was spot on. Extremely comfy shorts ideal for a long ride.
Very comfortable, pad good size and position .Size accurate to slightly generous I am 6' with 33" waist and large size ever so slightly loose. Look like they should last.
OK, first things first I'm a mountain biker and I still wear bib shorts, under baggies obviously!
Now that's out of the way these Lusso bib shorts are by far the comfiest I have ever owned, firm and compressive where you want and fitted in the other important areas where you don't want to be compressed! I have been out on 5 hour epics and these bib shorts are still comfortable to the point where you don't notice them. Padding is good but not bulky.
All in all they're a bit ace, get yourself some now!
Bought as a gift for my son. He is delighted with them, good fit, good pad, good quality bib short. Would highly recommend.
Very comfy bib short, worn them for a couple of 100 plus rides, no problems.
Second pair. I like these shorts a lot.
Great looking, great feeling shorts with a comfortable pad. Absolute bargain.
Very comfortable and well-fitting. So impressed, I've bought a second pair.
Have worn a few other brands of bibshorts and all perform pretty well but none are as comfortable as these. The Pro-Gel pad is excellent and they provide a good compressive fit with no chafing. I'm 5'-9'' and 80Kg (ish) and bought size medium. Great quality all round and will be ordering another pair very soon
Real world sizing for people with normal bodies. Returned some well reviewed dhbs which were tiny, flimsy and poor quality compared to these.
Good pad, grippers, comfortable and cool without feeling thin. Shoulder straps are more substantial than others. White goes grey in the wash, but that's about the only negative. Great value - recommended.
Must be good. I bought another two pairs.
Keep meaning to test these shorts properly but every time I go out in them I forget I'm wearing them. The fit is good (6'2", not skinny, XL) as is the pad. Best shorts I own.
Quite simply a superb pair of bib shorts. The pad is thick, well designed and comfortable. First ride out in them was 80k with no issues whatsoever.
Nice fit on the shorts. Good leg grippers. Shoulder straps wide and comfortable.
The service from Merlin was also second to none. I placed my order at 9am, by 10am I had a despatch note and the shorts arrive next day.
Excellent Quality. Padding provides very good support for long rides.
Super comfy bib short. I am 6 foot @ 90kg. Got the XL which fit well. Quality product at a good price. You get what you pay for and with this product I feel you get a little more quality for the price paid and made in the UK.
Vey comfortable, so good, in fact, I purchased a second pair.
Well made and comfortable shorts. The gel in the pad gives a high degree of comfort on longer rides. Whilst there may be better shorts, these are excellent value for money at the lower end of the price range.
Great shorts - just a shame the decal came off after the first ride.
Second pair of these I've bought, my rear seems to get very tender after 50 or so miles and I find these are the best shorts for the money to relieve the pain. The pad lasts well too, my other pair are 2yrs old and still holding up very well.
Been buying Lusso shorts since 1996, never been let down yet and these are by far the best.
So combined with Merlins discount and great service always a winner.
Very impressed with these Bib shorts. My first pair. Comfortable, good padding, grippy legs. Recommended.
Great comfortable shorts, good quality & made in the UK.
After wearing normal non bib shorts I thought it time to take the plunge and after reading reviews bought these.
I am 6'2" and 86 kg usually wearing an XL so ordered the XL, these are spot on fit, really well made and very comfortable.
I recommend these shorts and a great price from Merlin.
Great pair of bib shorts at exceptional price. I have used Lusso shorts for years and these are the most comfortable model that I have had. Pad thickness is spot on for medium to long rides and the short material wicks moisture away perfectly. Would definitely recommend them especially at this price.
These are my first pair of Lusso shorts and I'm really pleased with them. I've found them very comfortable and the large size fits my 34" waist frame fine. Gel pad is good too!! Recommended.
2nd pair of these shorts,They're even better than the first pair which were great until I came off avoiding a dog running across the road.
Comfortable pad & quality lycra, nice fit too.
I have the Altura progels and these are far superior.
Made in the UK - I'm sure there are better shorts to be had but not at this price.
Great fit and cut. Good use of materials. Mesh lined across the back to wick away mositure. Good length in the leg. Comfortable pad and excellent value for money. I have had the previous version of these shorts and they have lasted very well.
These are very good..why have i not brought them before?
Very comfy, good value
Been happy with the bibs not the greatest looking but good value and comfy which more important
Great pair of British made shorts pad very good gel does make a difference I highly recommend these shorts as all lusso clothing top marks usual brilliant service from merlin
Lusso make great stuff. These bib-shorts are no exception.
Good to buy a british garment and be able to say it is the best at that price
Very comfortable and absolutely top quality for the price (which is cheaper at Merlin Cycles than almost anywhere else). Padding is relatively unobtrusive but does the job. Sizing is a little on the generous size - I purchased a medium for a 31-32 inch waist and feel it would comfortably accommodate up to a 34 inch waist.
Overall a great product and highly recommended for comfort.
Practical and comfortable bib shorts, great fit with realistic price tag, real world sizing unlike some other EU brands who consider 42 in chest to be XXL.
Great service from Merlin as always.
Serious padding in these bad boys! Comfy and good value
used these shorts last week,first time on my road bike this year,backside fine ,legs need some work.
Great value for money shorts (it's my second pair of Lusso bib shorts!) and excellent on-line service from Merlin. Can recommend both!
This product is highly recommended. I have only bought shorts from another manufacturer previously but would definitley purchase these again.
