Designed 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. See below for more information
SRC Recovery garments provide you with increased stability and allow you to move more freely post-delivery, making lifting, feeding, bathing and caring for your baby much easier.
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.
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.
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.
To make sure we deliver this we decided to test our fabric against one of the leading compression brands in the marketplace to assess whether the compression properties were sustained after multiple washes and how this compared to the other brand.
We subjected the fabric to 100 wash cycles followed by an extension test. Our fabric not only retained its original size and shape (against the competitor which shrunk significantly) but also retained the same high level of compression at the conclusion of testing.
The Recovery garment’s flatlock seams increase comfort during exercise, prevent chafing and wound aggravation.

You should not wear SRC Recovery Shorts or Leggings during pregnancy. In fact, you should not even attempt to try them on. SRC Recovery Shorts or Leggings are designed to wear postpartum, after delivery. SRC Pregnancy Shorts or Leggings are designed to wear during pregnancy to assist with common pregnancy conditions.
You should wear your SRC Recovery garments for as many hours as they feel comfortable. They can be worn both day and night.
With recovery compression garments, when you are between sizes, we recommend that you select the size down to achieve the optimal fit due to likely rapid loss of fluid post birth.
Begin wearing your SRC Recovery Shorts & Leggings as soon as you feel comfortable. For best results our research indicates to start wearing them within the first two days post delivery. It really depends on how you feel and advice of your health care practitioner. Most women put them on around the 36-48 hour mark post delivery, in the case of c-section maybe a little longer, as any straining is definitely contraindicated.
You will most likely need some assistance putting them on the first few times. Most midwives and hospital physios know our product and should be able to assist you.
If at any stage you feel pain, please take them off. The breathable lining and fabric will not impede healing in any way. In case of C-section - if your wound is infected, you can wear product during day and remove during the night to allow additional airflow to the wound until fully healed.
You should wear your SRC Recovery & Leggings Shorts for as many hours as they feel comfortable. Your Shorts or Leggings can be worn both day and night.
Your SRC Recovery Shorts & Leggings have been designed for use in the first 8-10 weeks after delivery but can and should be worn for as long as they provide benefit. Many women continue to wear the garment long after the initial healing stage, for both exercise and for aesthetic reasons under fitted clothing.
We have many women ask us this same question.
We recommend an individualised Clinical Pilates program designed specifically to your needs by your Women’s Health Physiotherapist and combining that with wearing SRC Recovery Garme day and night for a period of up to 4 months or greater. This has provided significant benefit to many women with this issue.
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 (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. We recommend you measure from 36 weeks for SRC Recovery Shorts and Leggings.
Love these shorts!! I wish I’d bought them for recovering from our first child. It’s making recovery from the second birth so much easier! My physio recommended them to me and I can see why - they are life changing. They are beautifully made, and while they’re not cheap they are definitely worth every cent. I’ve ordered the leggings too.
It’s the most comfortable shaper I ever had. I wear it almost every day .
I love the shorts so much. After having a C Section i had a 8 cm abdominal separation which got totally reduced after wearing the recovery shorts for about 12 weeks. My baby is now 5 months and i still use the recovery shorts to do exercise and go for walks.
Currently living in my SRC Pregnancy leggings (second pregnancy in them and no compromise in quality) so have stocked up on the Recovery shorts and leggings for post birth as my abs are already separating so I want to do all I can to aid recovery and trust this product!
