SRC Recovery shorts will help speed up your postnatal recovery, and regain you pre-baby body shape faster.

The specialised fabric contraction technology is designed to increase mobility and pelvic muscle function, reducing pain and increasing pelvic and back support.  Anatomical panels provide consistent medical grade compression to caesarean section or perineal wound areas.  The lightweight breathable fabric provides superior comfort.

What can SRC Recovery Shorts help with?

  • regaining pre-baby body shape
  • recovery from c-section or perineal trauma
  • Diastasis of the Rectus Abdominal Muscle (DRAM)
  • Support related pelvic floor dysfunction (SPFD)
  • reduce symptoms of postnatal urinary incontinence
  • additional support for mobility and stability issues


How do SRC Recovery Shorts work?

The gentle compression promotes supporting pressure to the pelvis, back and abdominal muscles improving your mobility and will actually help you regain your pre-baby body shape. Mobility is the key. By activating the core muscles with gentle compression this provides support and stimulates strengthening of the abdominal muscles facilitating muscle recovery.

Unique SRC garment technology enables muscular activity and promotes muscle stimulation. This is not possible if you choose a corset, girdle, or rigid support garment. From day 1 you can be confident in the knowledge that your SRC recovery shorts are doing their job even when you’re not active.

SRC recovery shorts allow easier mobilization post-delivery and makes lifting, feeding, bathing and caring for your baby much easier. SRC pregnancy recovery shorts fit like a second skin, the gentle compression helps you get mobile sooner after both a vaginal or C-section delivery by facilitating faster central fluid loss and swelling.

SRC compression garments provide gentle compression to a wound area. Whether you have C-section delivery or stitches/tears to the perineum the SRC Recovery shorts reduce wound tension and promotes a much faster and safer recovery.

How to achieve the best results using SRC Recovery Shorts

SRC recovery shorts have been designed for use in the first 8-10 weeks after delivery but can be worn for as long as they provide benefit.

Please be advised that if you have had stitches to the perineal area following a vaginal delivery you should change your maternity pad every 2 hours. DO NOT wear a pad that has a plastic backing. This may cause the area to sweat which will increase the risk of infection. Wash the area with salt water and dry well following each pad change. Wear your recovery shorts during the day only while your perineal stitches are healing. Once the area is fully healed you can wear them both day and night.

Begin wearing your SRC Pregnancy Recovery Shorts as soon as you feel able post-delivery. It may take a few days for your SRC Recovery Shorts to feel fully comfortable because of fluid retention.

Wear your Recovery Shorts for as many hours as you wish. Your SRC Recovery Shorts should feel supportive without any feeling of restriction. During pregnancy some women find that their ribs expand to accommodate the growing foetus. If so, the elastic at the top of the SRC Recovery Shorts may feel a little tight even though the garment is otherwise comfortable. This is easily resolved by putting the elastic on continuous gentle stretch for a number of hours. SRC Recovery Shorts can be worn both day and night.

It is important to note that your SRC Recovery Shorts will perform best when washed every 3 days. For continued support wear your SRC Activate Capri/Legging during this time.

Measure in your underwear, place the tape over your hips, pubic bone and bottom at the fullest part.  Measure and order your SRC Recovery Shorts during or after the 36th week of pregnancy as your hip measurement may change during early to mid-pregnancy.  If you have already had your baby, you can measure at any time.  If you are between sizes, please choose the smaller size because of fluid loss experienced after you birth your baby.
