The SRC Recovery Shorts provide you with the support to move more freely post-delivery and make lifting, feeding, bathing and caring for your baby much easier.
Do you want to speed up your post pregnancy recovery*:
- Regain your pre-baby body shape?
- Recovery from C-section or perineal trauma ?
- Abdominal Muscle Separation (Diastasis Rectus Abdominus Muscle DRAM)?
- Increase stability and mobility?
Abdominal muscle health and strength is one of keys to recovery post delivery. Rehabilitation of abdominal muscles is paramount to allows your back and pelvic floor to work more effectively. Incontinence has been associated with poor abdominal muscle function i.e. if your abdominal muscles do not heal post birth your pelvic floor is then unable to work effectively.
1. Activate Muscles
The unique SRC garment technology promotes muscle stimulation and activation by providing gentle compression / light pressure to the pelvis, back and abdominal muscles. 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.
2. Reduce Swelling
Fitting like a second skin, the gentle compression helps you get mobile sooner after both a vaginal or C-section delivery.
3. Reduces Pain and Provide Wound Support
SRC compression garments provide gentle compression to a wound area. Whether you have had a C-section delivery or stitches/tears to the perineum, the SRC Recovery shorts reduce wound swelling and pain and promote a faster and safer recovery .
SRC Pregnancy Shorts have been designed in consultation with obstetrician Dr. Grant Saffer. Anatomically designed support panels fit with the natural curves of the female anatomy whilst delivering consistent gentle medical grade compression. The garment delivers exceptional fit and maximum support without any feeling of restriction. Designed for use in the first 8-10 weeks after delivery they can be worn for as long as they provide benefit, and many women continue to wear their recovery shorts for exercise or for aesthetic reasons under fitted clothing.
SRC Women's compression shorts feature a proprietary luxurious fabric and breathable power mesh lining. These fabrics are independently and scientifically tested. Test results show that our fabric and its construction is not only of the highest quality but it consistently delivers continuous gentle graduated compression over time. To achieve this, high performance fabric panels are cut in multiple planes to provide multi-directional stretch performance which means that SRC compression garments retain their stretch and strength characteristics longer than some leading sports performance brands
Begin wearing your SRC 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.
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.
SRC Recovery Shorts can be worn both day and night. Wear your SRC 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. Please contact us should you require further information.
Alternate between your SRC Recovery Shorts and your SRC Activate garment as soon as you feel you no longer require as much upper abdominal support throughout the entire day and the swelling of the upper abdominal area has significantly reduced.
SRC Activate garments have been designed to allow you to comfortably return to exercise, all the while knowing that your pelvis, lower back and legs are supported. 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.

For best results get someone other than yourself to take a number of
measurements as sizing is critical to the performance of the garment.
Do not take your own measurement.
Measure in your underwear only. Stand with your heels together
and keep the measuring tape straight. Place the tape over your
hips, pubic bone and bottom at the fullest part. The tape should
touch your body at all points but not be pulled tight.
To ensure the ideal fit, we suggest that if you are towards the
top end of a size you should select the next size up.
We advise you measure and order your SRC Recovery Shorts
during or after the 36 week of pregnancy as your hip measurement
may change during early to mid-pregnancy. If you already have
had your baby you can measure at any time.
