Maternity & Postnatal Active Support Cycling Shorts | Olive
Designed to adapt and flex with your body through pregnancy and into postnatal life, these maternity cycling shorts will see you through years of workouts and are a staple for the summer months.
Created in squat-proof, sweat-wicking fabric that hugs your bump without ever feeling restrictive, these versatile shorts feel silky soft against the skin and offer light compression to support your tummy, hips and lower back. The seams have been thoughtfully positioned so they won’t dig in or rub – even against a C-section scar – while the waistband can be worn high over your bump/postpartum tummy, or folded down for a lower rise if that’s more your style.
These cycling shorts are also a lifesaver when it comes to avoiding thigh-rub under a dress, or simply for avoiding those ‘Marilyn moments’ (we’ve all been there)! The olive colourway makes a gorgeous alternative to classic black, but is every bit as easy to wear.
We're proud to be a GOLD winner in the Best Maternity Fashion Brand category of the Loved By Parents awards 2022.
Why Mamas love them
Our stretchy fabric will grow with your body from the first trimester to the third, without ever compromising on support. It also provides light compression, which can help ease pregnancy back and hip pain.
Perfect for postpartum life
You can wear these super-versatile cycling shorts for as long as you like postnatally – in fact, they'll probably become your go-to for everything from a workout to an extra bit of modesty under dresses.
Squat to your heart’s content without worrying that your shorts are letting you down! Our fabric is completely opaque and will stay that way through wash and wear. It's also the ideal thickness for preventing VPL and concealing maternity pads or knickers.
Wear low or high waisted
Wear the waistband high to gently hug your bump or lightly sculpt your postnatal tummy, or roll it down if that’s more your style.
These maternity cycling shorts feature dropped seams that won’t dig into your bump. They're also strategically positioned so they won't rub a C-section scar.
Two large pockets
Cycling shorts with pockets? Yes indeed. We’ve added a deep pocket at either side of these maternity and postnatal shorts. They’ll easily hold your phone, keys, a muslin or even a baby bottle. Game changer!
What stage are they for?
These maternity cycling shorts will see you through every step of your pregnancy – from the first trimester until you’re ready to pop! You can also count on them for comfort and support once your baby arrives, because they're designed to transition with your body both during and after pregnancy.
Generally the first trimester: you're newly pregnant and your regular clothes are becoming a little tight.
Generally the second trimester: your bump has 'popped' and there's no more squeezing into your jeans with the hairband hack!
Generally the third trimester: you're in the thick of it now! You can't really see your toes anymore and baby is very much at home!
Mamas of multiples or those with truly magnificent bumps – especially towards the end of pregnancy.
The fourth trimester and beyond: you've got through labour, your baby is here and you're keen to get moving. You need workout shorts you can count on to boost your confidence and support your postpartum tummy through every movement in comfort.

Great fit, true to size, super comfortable, pockets are a godsend. Best shorts I’ve had in ages. I quite often wear them into work under dresses as well as they are supportive without being restrictive. A few more colours eventually would be good.
(FYI they aren’t padded cycling shorts in case it wasn’t obvious but if I’m on the bike I just wear padded cycling knickers!)
I already have a pair of the pink shorts, but wanted a different colour. At first, I wasn't sure about ordering this colour, but they look fab on. They are the comfiest maternity shorts I have tried on! I tried ordering from other companies but found these ones the comfiest. These have fitted my bump from 20 weeks right up until now (currently 34 weeks) - and still plenty of room! I love that they are high waisted but you can also fold the waist band over if you wish which makes them wearable post-natally. I definitely wouldn't hesitate to buy more and love this colour!
These shorts are the the best I've found. They are super soft and comfortable, so good to wear with a t-shirt or oversized shirt but also great for running. Very high waisted which is great. Honestly you don't need any others, these are the ones. True to size also.
Perfect for this summer weather to wear with a T-shirt yet still great for running in. Also love the pockets - so handy!
Not been able to do much exercise other than walking in my pregnancy and even that has been a struggle at times! I got the cycling shorts for bump support while walking and have just been wearing them all the time to give me that extra support without using a pelvic belt. Walking now much more comfortable! Looking forward to using them for when I can get back to my usual exercise routine postpartum too.
