Itís up to you on how snug it fits. But there are two jersey cuts: race and club. The race cut is for those skinny dudes with no fat on their bodies. The club cut is a little fuller and made for the average person. I think (and I could be wrong) that most jerseys sold at website are the club cut unless otherwise noted. This applies to road jerseys. The mountain bike jerseys are much looser. But if you wear a mountain bike jersey on your road bike, you will be laughed at. It just isnít done! We roadies are such snobs.
My advice on the jersey is to get cheap, bright ones! They must be bright so people (drivers) can see you. You spend the money on the best shorts you can afford. One of my favorite jerseys was only $20! I had to dig through a box of jerseys in bike shop, in the middle on nowhere, while I was on a ride. The shop was getting rid of lots of jerseys but it was worth the dig.
You did the right thing in getting a cheap jersey.
Do not look where you fell, but where you slipped.
