Support when you need it
SRC Recovery Shorts provide postpartum support and pain relief after a c-section or vaginal delivery so you can move more freely post-delivery. Pregnancy pushes your body nearly as much as extreme endurance sports.
Speeding up recovery after delivery, the peak of this marathon event, is a crucial part in enjoying a healthier motherhood journey for you, your baby and your family.
How they work
Designed with anti-chafing fabric and in consultation with an obstetrician for the ultimate in comfort and functionality, SRC Recovery Shorts provide the support you need to heal and move more freely post-delivery.
SRC Recovery garments aid in the treatment of
- C-section wounds,
- Perineal trauma,
- Episiotomy wounds,
- Abdominal muscle separation (Diastasis Rectus Abdominus Muscle DRAM),
- Lower back pain
The science behind the comfort
Patented Anatomical Support Panels (ASP) in the SRC Recovery garments deliver targeted compression, ideal for treating multiple conditions like c-section wounds, perineal trauma and episiotomy wounds, abdominal muscle separation and lower back pain.
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 plane so that during activity no compression is lost at any time.
Postpartum Band vs SRC Recovery Shorts?
SRC Recovery compression garments were designed to treat multiple conditions during the postpartum period; Abdominal Muscle Separation, Perineal Tears and stitches, C-Section wounds, Sciatica and Low Back Pain. Postpartum belly bands simply do not treat all these conditions.
SRC Recovery Shorts and Leggings are more comfortable to wear than any belly wrap after pregnancy. Because of this they are more likely to be worn for long periods which increases their effectiveness.
Endorsed by the Australian Physiotherapy Association
With no adjustable buttons, velcro or zips, the Recovery garments are like a second skin. There’s no need to constantly adjust while you’re wearing them. Recommended by health care professionals for improving mobility and pelvic muscle function postpartum, these garments have become a must-have inclusion in hospital bags of women the world over.
The research and development of our fabric was extensive as we wanted to ensure that it provided support and comfort with no feeling of restriction. Our uniquely milled fabric goes through rigorous independent testing to ensure that it is of the highest quality and can stretch and return to its original shape consistently after wash and wear to provide you with optimal performance and a longer lasting garment.
Sizing and measurements
Correct measurement for our garments is crucial. As they are medical garments they may not always correlate to general/fashion clothing sizes. General fashion sizes also vary drastically by country and by brand so we strongly recommend you have someone else take your measurements and use this guide to size yourself up.
We recommend you measure from 36 weeks for SRC Recovery Shorts and Leggings.
