    Good evening!

    I'm new to this site, just got back into cycling after a break but want to get the proper kit this time!

    I've managed to get some padded cycling shorts but am having trouble getting a top that is long enough in the body. So far they are all too short and ride up.

    Would anyone be able to suggest a make I could try please?

    All answers gratefully received!

    Welcome, I am sure there will be others that will advise you better than me, but you could try bibs, though from what I have read they can be difficult for women when you need the loo.
    I just wear any old kit, so long as I am wearing shorts I am fine.

    Men's tops certainly tend to be longer if you are ok with that route

    Corinne Dennis have a good rep too

    I'm long in the body and have found Aldi tops quite long the last top I bought from Tenn Outdoors and that was pretty good too

    OOooOO and Hi welcome to CC :welcome:

    My OH is very long in the body, and she finds Sportful tops are a good length.

    I'm 6ft tall and have to wear men's tops. I've never found a women's top long enough. Bib shorts may cut you in half if you're not careful
