Women's Size Guide
We started by addressing the needs and concerns of the best women in the sport of cycling, who provided critical input into chamois placement, construction and design. We used premium Italian Lycra-based fabric with a light and supportive feel. Designed to be compressive for the highest levels of muscular support, the refined fit of the Signature Short enhances every ride. Featuring a yoga-style waist for excellent freedom of movement and added comfort and breathability. Finally, through many thousands of miles of testing, we've developed our custom top-spec chamois which has been universally loved by all who have tested it.

Caring for your cycling gear properly will extend its life and maintain its performance, fit and quality. Its important to consider these instructions carefully. While we stand behind the quality of our apparel, not adhering to these instructions will void our warranty against manufacturing & defects.
We strongly recommend washing your new gear before wearing it. Youll find that your apparel will soften, and fit & comfort will improve after washing - especially with bibs & shorts.
Machine wash cool, 86F (30C) with like colors: Cooler temps maintain better longevity for your apparel. Like colors, especially lights, will remain more vibrant when washed with like colors.
Use mild detergent. Do not bleach or dry clean: Strong detergents & bleach can break down the fibers and elastane in the garment, dramatically reducing its life.
Close all fastenings: this goes also for other garments mixed in with your cycling apparel. Velcro closures or clasps can catch on stitching or trim and damage your garments.
Lay flat to dry. Do not tumble dry: Do not put your cycling apparel in the dryer. Even on low heat. Dont do it. Heat can damage fabric, elastic and heat transfer logos very easily. Lycra (Elastane) is used throughout our garments to provide compression and support and is susceptible to damage from heat and can irreparably damage your apparel.

I was hoping the yoga waste band meant it was higher waste than typical. The pictures don’t show that it is actually a criss cross waste band that typically just rolls down in an unflattering way, so I’m not sure these will be better than others I’ve tried. They otherwise seem fine. I’ll have to test them out longer before I decide if I’ll keep them.
Fit, fabric, and chamois spot on in providing comfort and protection while riding.
This is my 4th Velocio signature shorts purchase. They are hands down my go- to shorts for long distance/century rides. Great chamois, not too bulky, compressive but does not cause " sausage legs", flattering fit, durable and long lasting. Only wish they offered it in more colors i.e. navy blue.
I purchased both a medium and large in the women’s signature short and found the medium to be the best fitting and most comfortable. The compression of the fabric on the medium short seemed a bit tight to start with but by the end of the first ride, the fit was perfect. They are, by far, my favorite shorts to wear on a long ride.
I find buying shorts a challenge. My long torso often means the waist hits too low on me but that's not the case with these shorts. Despite having short legs, I find the inseam to be a little shorter than I like but it's OK. The biggest trouble spot for me is the chamois because I like padding over the sit bones but not too much in front. This chamois isn't perfect but it's as good as I've found. The shorts are tight going on but feel going once I get them situated. The 30-day return policy is what prompted me to order. Knowing that I could try them out and if not satisfied, return them meant I was willing to take a gamble. I've now purchased a second pair.
