Round out your cycling wardrobe with the Terry Bicycles Women's Bella Prima Shorts. Fashioned from a mix of nylon and spandex, these shorts stretch to move with you through the pedal stroke and with a hint of compression for impeccable comfort. Their wide, elastic-free waist and leg bands provide a secure, pinch-free fit for uninterrupted hours in the saddle.
Equipped with Terry's Flex Air chamois, the Bella Prima Shorts boast seamless padding with four-way stretch Elastic Interface Technology and multi-density foam, ensuring a smooth, chafe-free feel. A lightweight, microfiber cover promotes ventilation while simultaneously reducing the insert's thickness profile at the inner thigh to combat chafing and irritation.

- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: XXL
I tried on 5 Terry shorts for comparison.
These have a bit of a taller waist, which is awesome for ensuring that they stay up!
They have a flat thin band of fabric across the front of the waist, and then a thicker elastic band sewn in that wraps around the back. The elastic waist is a bit more robust on these, but that will definitely help keep them in place.
I love the longer length as well, that extra half inch actually does make a different, especially if you have chubby thunder thighs (like I do!), and for whatever reason, this 8.5 inseam seemed longer than the 8.5 inseam of the other shorts I tried on.
Ultimately I decided to keep the Peleton Hi Vis and the Breakaway, for their more streamlined waist bands.
