SRC Over the Bump Pregnancy Leggings have been speciﬁcally designed to support your ‘baby carrying pelvis’ and reduce the stress placed on it through your pregnancy. This allows you to stay at work for longer, helps you get back on your feet and move around more easily and just generally makes you feel like yourself again.
With an adjustable waistband to accommodate your growing bump, the SRC Over the Bump Pregnancy Leggings can be worn from 12 weeks until full term in order to allow you to be in the best shape you can be before delivery.
How do SRC Over the Bump Pregnancy Leggings work?
SRC Over the Bump Pregnancy Leggings provide stability to the muscles of the back and pelvis. They provide gentle support and compression to your back and pelvis. The targeted compression in the garment improves pelvic and core stability. Additionally, graduated compression may prevent the development or worsening of varicose veins by preventing the blood pooling and therefore the symptoms of varicose veins and swollen legs.
Patented Anatomical Support Panels (ASP) in the SRC Over the Bump Pregnancy Leggings deliver targeted compression, ideal for treating multiple conditions like lower back pain, pelvic girdle pain and mild varicose veins as well as vulvar varicosities.
They provide support to the pelvic area through gentle yet constant compression, activating muscles and encouraging core stability, reducing swelling and muscle fatigue.
The ASP deliver True Cross Compression (TCC) as each layer within the panel is cut on a different plain so that during activity no compression is lost at any time.
The triple layer compression ASP including the gusset panel, have been shown to significantly help with the pressure associated with vulval veins.

For best results get someone other than yourself to measure you as sizing is critical to the performance of the garment.
Compression Leggings for varicose veins
SRC Over the Bump Pregnancy Leggings will assist with relieving symptoms of vulvar varicosities.
*Please note: SRC Pregnancy Leggings OTB have a gentle level of graduated compression in the legs. These are suitable for women with mild varicose veins or swelling. This product will not provide enough compression for moderate or severe varicose veins of the legs. Women often complain that wearing a grade 2 or 3 compression stocking for long periods can be difficult due to them becoming hot and tight. The SRC Leggings OTB were designed with a specific level of compression so that women can wear their compression stockings under the SRC Leggings for a number of hours during the day. Once the compression stockings have been removed the SRC Leggings will continue to provide mild graduated compression so the benefit of having worn the stockings is not lost.
Sizing and Measurements
Correct measurement with these garments is crucial to the functionality of the leggings. As they are a medical garment/measured sizes they do not correlate to general/fashion clothing sizes. General fashion sizes also vary drastically by country and by brand (we find that an Australian XS can equate to a S or even M in American sizes) so we strongly recommend you have someone else take your measurements and use this guide to size yourself up.
We also have a video for you to reference in terms of measuring yourself correctly here:
