How should I expect a FloraVelo jersey to fit?
Our jerseys are designed to provide a great fit for most body types. The fabric for the front of the jersey has 4-way stretch which allows a flattering, but not clingy, fit. The jersey is also designed with a little extra room around the midsection so a perfect figure is not required to look and feel great. The fabric for the back and sides of the jersey is a 2-way stretch fabric that provides stretch around the body, but will not stretch vertically which provides the necessary support for side and back pockets.
Most cycling jerseys seem to run smaller than traditional exercise clothing. Do I need to buy a larger size than I normally wear in exercise clothing?
You shouldn't have to. Our jerseys are designed to be true to size, so if most of your shirts are a medium, then try the medium and it will probably provide a great fit. However, if you like your jerseys to be very fitted, you might want to order a size down, and if you prefer a roomier, looser fit, you may want to order one size up. Check out our size chart for details.
What are the care instructions for FloraVelo jerseys?
All our jerseys are machine washable in cold water on a gentle cycle. They can be dried on low heat or hung to dry.
What size phone fits the cell phone pocket?
Great question - phones keep getting larger so not all phones will fit. Please see Special Features for detailed information and pictures of the cell phone pocket. This pocket is also great for energy bars, pepper spray, or any other quick access items.
Is there elastic around the bottom of the jersey, as is common in most cycle wear?
No. Honestly, the elastic was the first thing to go when we started designing. We found it uncomfortable and unflattering, and it makes a jersey tend to ride up, so it's also not functional. Our jerseys provide a little more coverage than most - and with the help of the stretch in the fabric, the jersey will stay put when you're riding.
