Size Guide Big And Tall Road Bottoms

READ THIS ⬇️ It will help you get the right size first time


Our Spare Tyre/Big and Tall Tights and Shorts should fit close to the skin and the pad should be in close contact with the undercarriage.

There should be no baggy or wrinkled fabric around the legs or crotch. 

One size fits a tall lad approx 54 - 64" waist however fitting tights and shorts can be tricky as a lot affects the overall fit, such as waist, bum and leg size as well as height.  It's always a good idea to email our sizing Guru's with your measurements before buying. 

Spare Tyre Lads can often go down to a size *9 or 10 in our mens range even when their measurements suggest Spare Tyre - it all depends on height and shape and overall build.

It's often a good idea to try a couple of sizes and return the wrong one for a refund. We know that's a kerfuffle, but it is worth the effort to get the right size.

How To Try On Bib Shorts

When your bib shorts arrive, try them on and adopt cycling position. The shorts should fit snuggly and there should be no flappy fabric around the legs. If the legs are flappy then you need to go down at least 1 size but we can give you more advice if you email us some photographs and or your measurements.
