Good shorts with poor straps

This is the second pair of Sportful bib shorts. My first was the Giara.

Firstly, the good. The shorts have good compression and the chamois is comfy for longer rides. I like the feel overall for shorter rides.

The things that I feel can be improved on are a deeper thigh pocket. It's fairly shallow, and struggles to keep my phone secure when vertically positioned. The big drawback for me are that the straps are like cheese graters for your nipples. They're very short as well. Bibs at this price have no excuse for cheap, overly thin and tight straps.

I'm a size large in every other brand I've owned, and learned quickly to ignore the sportful sizing and size up. Even in an XL, these straps feel like they're inches too short, with too little stretch making for a fairly uncomfortable fit on the shoulders and as previously mentioned, my poor nipples. I'm trying to figure out how to permanently stretch the straps out, but to no avail, yet.

If you have a shorter torso, I'd imagine this won't be a problem. I'm 6'4" 185lbs. I'm tall, but pretty damn thin. I'm figuring out that Sportful may just not be the best fit for me.
