Inspired by the Greek goddess of beauty and love (Aphrodite), these bike shorts from Sheila Moon are made with soft-to-the-touch fabric and feature an ultra-comfy crossover waistband with a longer inseam and a 4-way stretch chamois. We love the comfortable v-shaped waistband. It is not designated as a "maternity short", but its comfy, stretchy, cross-over waistband is maternity friendly.

FIT NOTE: Our experience indicates that this garment is running a bit large.  Please check the sizing chart; if you are between sizes or if you prefer a snugger fit, you might consider ordering the smaller size.

3.0 stars 3.0 for Aphrodite Shorts - CLOSEOUT by Sheila Moon (5 reviews)

4.0 stars 4.0

Size down!

(Avid Cyclist) June 18, 2012

These are great shorts - padding is perfect - not too thin, not to bulky, material is soft and stretchy with no elastic squeezing in the waist and thighs. They are sized too large though. Bought in a small and will return for an extra small. Perfect summer riding shorts but definitely size down.

Pros
  • Breathable
  • Good Padding
  • Comfortable
Cons
Uses
  • Warm Weather
  • Road Biking
  • Waist: Feels too big
  • Length: Feels true to length

Too big....the sizing guide is way off.

(Avid Cyclist) December 20, 2011

Have to send 'em back. They are way to large. I ordered the large size accoding to the sizing chart.

Large is too big

(Avid Cyclist) November 23, 2011

My waist unfortuately is 32" and my hips are 41" so according to the size chart, I should have ordered and XL. The large is so large, I wonder if I should try a small. Order a size down if you want a correct fit.

Pros
Cons
  • Poor Fit
Uses
  • Warm Weather
  • Road Biking
  • Waist: Feels too big
  • Length: Feels true to length

most comfortable shorts I own

(Avid Cyclist) March 3, 2011

These are the most comfortable shorts I own. I love the fabric and the no-elastic cross-over waist - no pressure on the tummy. Some other brands chamois' feel bulky but this does not - minimal but more than enough (I usually prefer even less but these are comfortable). I own many brands of shorts but either these Aphrodite or the Athena's are what I wear most often.

Pros
  • Good Fit
  • Soft fabric
  • Dries Quickly
  • Does not squeeze waist
  • Good Padding
  • Flattering
  • Comfortable
  • Durable
  • Breathable
Cons
  • Wish it came in colors
Uses
  • Warm Weather
  • Commuting
  • Long Rides
  • Road Biking
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels true to length

I loved these shorts except......

(Avid Cyclist) July 10, 2010

I really wanted to love these shorts! I love the v waistband. It is so comfortable. I also loved that the legs had a wide band and no elastic. The fit perfectly and I thought they were going to be great. Unfortunately, when I got on my bike they were terrible. For some reason they cut a small notch in the chamois when they were sewing them on. The edges are sharp and they scratch my leg every time I pedal. I sent them back thinking they were defective. However, the new pair was just the same. Team Estrogen said they are all like this! I would never buy this product again.

Pros
  • Good Padding
  • Good Fit
Cons
  • Chafes
Uses
  • Road Biking
  • Mountain Biking
  • Long Rides
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels true to length
