Assos Assos Women's SS.Lady ellisse Jersey
Absolutely love the colours of this Top
I look professional in this top and I feel I have to give that gorgeous top justice and improve my cycling even more! I've bought this top because of it's vibrant colours which can be easily seen by motorists. The fabric is made of airy material that doesn't make you sweat in it, it seems to easily absorb your body heat. It also has plenty of pockets for phone etc. The only complains I have to make is, top comes out very small. Lucky I've read some reviews and listened to their advice, even though I am a size 10/12, I've ordered top in large and it fits perfectly. I was also lucky because top was 50% on sale.

I'm a size 8, bordering on size 6 so ordered an XS - it was laughably small in all respects. Yes I am reasonably tall but I'm not sure it would have fitted my 10 year old daughter. I would only recommend if you are under 5 foot tall and order at least one size up!

I only bought it as it was on sale as I find Assos to be pretty expensive. It's a pretty tight fit so go a size up if you are not sure. I've had many comments on it though. It's a really nice looking jersey and I've had loads of comments on it.

Elegant and great quality
This makes you feel good & want to go out for a ride with a big smile on your face! One thing - watch out if you have a long back or a muffin top as it tends to ride up when you aren't riding, and show the tummy. Sizing is accurate.I waited ages to have this and I'm not disappointed. Comment about pockets is unfortunately true, I couldn't get my rain jersey in the middle pocket.but as it's for summer I'm not too worried.

lovely colours. Poor pockets
This is a really jazzy top and I feel great in it. But the pockets are not deep enough. I would not feel safe putting my phone or credit card in them. Zips next time please!

It was love at first sight! The style of this jersey is fantastic and is combined with great performance. Don't worry about whether you should be attracted by the style, the extra confidence of looking great certainly helps the pace!
A tip for the "well endowed", you may need to order a larger size as it's a snug fit.

Fabulous jersey in every way, especially the pocket design at the back - angled openings make it very easy to get your hands in and out while riding. Great fit, works well in every way. Super quality, nice that it's a bit different. Have had jersey for 1 year now - looks as good as new. Top stuff. Got fed up of buying cheaper jerseys that just weren't quite right - would rather save and buy one of these and look after it.

practicality of top
Lovely top but upset that pockets are not deep enough - have already had two things fall out of my back pockets while on rides - I have another Assos top and pockets are much deeper. Such a shame as love the design of the top - lots of people have complemented me on the top.

I purchased this for my other half when we were off to Holland touring for a week. First thing it looks far far better on than in the image. It is well made, well cut and performs to the highest standard. The material is soft and very fast drying.

very attractive high quality jersey
this jersey looks as good in real life as it does in the pictures. And the quality from Assos, as always, is second to none.

Beautiful, comfy, light, and certainly stands out when you want to be seen on the bike. I just feel like my stuff is going to fall off the side pockets, but perhaps I just need to get used to its design, lets see. Very expensive, tho! I was feeling flushy.

I was getting bored of the 'standard' Assos colours which for the most part are just the same as the mens, so was pleased to see something different from Assos just for us ladies. The new designs have taken a bit of getting used to but look a lot better in reality. I have the Violetta which is bright and vibrant which I really like and has received positve comments when worn. Fit wise the cut is the same as the SS.Lady but the pockets on the back have been changed. The side pockets appear slightly smaller to accommodate a wider double layered middle pocket which now seems just the right size to fill with energy gels. As with all Assos stuff the sizing is on the small side but seems true to the female Assos size chart.
The design / colour names are not intuitive so for clarity they are:
Violetta: Dark blue and bright pink shoulders
Adua: Orange shoulders
Norma: White and grey shoulders
