My girlfriend is getting a little more serious about cycling and having a lot of difficulty finding shorts that fit. She has a small waist and very strong legs (ex figure skater). Pearl Izumi mediums fit her waist ok (could maybe even go small) but the legs are too tight. The legs on a large are better but the waist is far too big. And of course the chamois quality is very important also.

A friend suggested SheBeest. Any other advice/suggestions?

Many, many thanks!

Is she wearing shorts or bibs? If shorts, I would suggest trying bibs or even men's sizes...
yeah, definitely. Waist, specifically, shouldn't really be a consideration and it wouldn't be with bibs. They'd just need to fit from the butt down and the straps be snug enough to take up slack but not too snug.

My wife is probably built similar to your girlfriend - I can only dream of having quads and calves like she does.

Sugio fits her well for road biking. She likes Bellweather for baggy MTB shorts.
