Saddle discomfort is one of the most talked about subjects among female cyclists. Despite what you may believe, you really don't have to put up with it.

So what's the key to keeping your "peach" happy? Some good padding is a starter for ten. All our cycling shorts are women's specific, but here's a look at what lies inside four of our favourites...

Anna's Legs

Your go-to cycling leggings

- Antibacterial
- Flatlock stitched seams to prevent chafing
- Denser padding around critical pressure points

"After putting on for the first time & riding a brisk 70 km on the road, I cannot praise these enough. Comfortable & beautiful. I love them, a great piece of kit - they are so fab! Size large is a comfortable UK14."


Morvélo

Award winning pad

- Soft against your skin
- Antibacterial
- Flatlock stitched seams to prevent chafing
- Dual layer padding that's perforated for extra breathability

"This is the second pair of Morvélo bib shorts I've bought, and they're among the most comfortable ones I've worn. The chamois especially is very comfortable, even for longer rides when others start to chafe a bit for me (it's a bit flatter along the outside, which helps a lot)."


Urbanist

Padded knickers

- Simple chamois design for short to medium length rides
- Breathable
- All-ways stretch for freedom of movement
- Comfortable and flexible so doesn't feel bulky

"Usually being no more than an occasional cyclist, I bought these for a cycling holiday where I did up to 45km per day. I’ve never had such a comfortable behind in the saddle. They dried out quickly after washing between rides too."
