Sensor Shorts Plus I

#LG-1050421-020-2X
$89.95
#LG-1050421-020-2X

For those of us who require a little more coverage, the 8”inseam and plus sizing of Louis Garneau’s Sensor short is a great match. The fit and feel of the short is amazing, with no bunching or stress in the eight panels of flat-stitched goodness. Features LG's anti-bacterial Airzone chamois.

FIT NOTE: Most customers wear a full size larger in the Louis Garneau brand than in most other brands. Please check the sizing chart and consider going up to the next larger size.

Wouldn't purchase another pair

(Avid Cyclist) November 11, 2013

Bike shorts. They can be great or they can be not so great. These LG shorts just do not work. The chamois constantly chafes and leaves a "bite" mark even when used with chamois cream. Long rides become uncomfortable quickly. I ordered the next size up from what I normally wear and it still felt like a sausage casing. The fit is wrong for a plus-sized body in my opinion. I ride frequently, and would not consider these shorts in the future.

Pros
  • Breathable
  • Dries Quickly
  • Durable
Cons
  • Chafes
  • Poor Fit
Uses
  • Road Biking
  • Warm Weather
  • Waist: Feels too small
  • Length: Feels too short

Not for big or long legs

(Avid Cyclist) April 6, 2013

I bought these for long highway rides with my husband. At first they were comfortable, but the length is too short for a tall Athena - I felt my whole leg was on display, cellulite and all. Up to about an hour of riding was okay, after that the seam that holds the cuff onto the bottom of the leg started digging in and chafing me raw.
The pad is okay, a bit thick for my liking. I would only recommend these shorts to a woman with short femurs and thin legs.

Pros
  • Dries Quickly
  • Liked The Fabric
  • Breathable
Cons
  • Chafes
  • Poor Fit
Uses
  • Road Biking
  • Warm Weather
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels too short

Great Waist Band

(Avid Cyclist) August 21, 2012

Having recently lost weight I wasn't sure what size to pick. I was an 18W and now a 16W -most of my curves in the mid section not my thighs. I followed the size chart and recommendation to go up a size and ordered the 3x. They are a little loose, but I like that I'm not stuffed in and the waist band does not cut into me or roll down. The inseam is a little short for my liking and the stitching on the seams makes the material pucker a little. The padding is great -just enough to make the ride more comfortable.

My only complaint is that because they don't fit me snuggly, the material in the butt area gets snagged on the seat when I go to get on (from straddling over center bar). I'm not sure if this is due to the shorts or the seat (this is a hybrid bike and the seat has a slight spring-loaded stem).

Overall I like these shorts a lot and will buy the next size down as I continue to lose weight. I really appreciate that this company offers shorts for us plus size women.

Pros
  • Good Padding
  • Comfortable
Cons
  • Short inseam
Uses
  • Road Biking
  • Long Rides
  • Commuting
  • Warm Weather
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels too short

Initial impressions

(Avid Cyclist) March 5, 2012

I like these shorts, but I find the fit is a little odd. The legs are a bit too tight, but the waist is almost loose. It may just be due to quirks in my body shape, but if you tend to be larger through the thighs you may find this is not the best fitting short for you.

Pros
  • Dries Quickly
  • Good Padding
  • Breathable
Cons
  • Odd fit
Uses
  • Road Biking
  • Waist: Feels too big
  • Length: Feels true to length
