Ladies Tri Short

Can any ladies recommend a good tri short for middle distance events?
So no change tent so no putting on cycling shorts in T1 option but 56 miles on the bike so need something with a decent ladies pad in them.
My personal preference is a wide non draw string waist band often referred to as yoga style.
I wondered what you ladies wore and would recommend? 


  • I like the 2xu ones but I think they do have a drawstring. If you get the endurance ones (I think) they have a pocket on each leg too which is great for carrying gels and an inhaler without them bouncing around in your jersey pocket.

    If you think you can or you think you can't you're probably right.
  • I'm dong a middle in August and had intended to wear a Tri Suit.  Not helpful really.

  • I have used pirate shorts for all distances...i do all my cycling in tri shorts.....sugio are good and I get on with the more miles but i think both have drawstrings..but never hjad a problem with that......the padding isn't great but you really want minimal padding or it will get socking lie a nappy in the swim and stick out during the run

    2xu for me. Seren makes a good point about the padding.

  • I second the 2xu ones I wear them all the time and they are good for keeping my wobbly bits none wobbly image

  • I used Sugio for Henly Half last year and as long as you ride, swim and run in them before hand then they are very comfy.

    The Sugoi did have a draw string but the first thing i do is pull it out, not required as shorts have a slight compression fit, or I'm just wearing a size too small for me !

  • 2XU or Sugoi Piston Tri for me ...

  • Pirate shorts for me.

  • Or to look at 2XU and Sugoi gear thanks for all the suggestions. image
