What are Pregnancy Shorts?

Pregnancy shorts, also known as maternity shorts, are specialised garments designed to accommodate a mum’s growing belly while providing comfort and support. They could feature stretchy panels or adjustable waistbands to accommodate the changing body shape during pregnancy, offering relief and flexibility for expecting mums. 

What makes the SRC Pregnancy Shorts special is the patented Anatomical Support Panels (ASP), which were developed to help treat multiple conditions such as low back and pelvic girdle pain, as well as vulval varicosities and mild to moderate leg varicose veins. They are made of anti-chafing fabric and grow with the bump and stay breathable even in warmer climates.

Over the Bump Maternity Shorts

Over the bump maternity shorts are a type of pregnancy support shorts that cover the pregnancy bump and offer you support as your little one grows. The SRC Over the Bump Pregnancy Compression Shorts are specifically designed to reduce pelvic stress while offering the coverage you need without compression to the abdomen. Unlike other garments, such as belly bands, the SRC Over the Bump Pregnancy Shorts give the body extra support and comfort using a super soft, stretch material to cover the upper abdomen, whilst all the other panels provide the compression necessary for effective treatment of common pregnancy conditions. 

Choose Over the Bump Pregnancy Shorts:

  • If you want to cover the bump

  • If you like the feeling of extra support without compressing the bump

Under the Bump Maternity Shorts

If you are looking for maternity shorts without coverage of your bump, the SRC Under the Bump Pregnancy Shorts and Leggings are designed for you. These specialised garments are suitable for mums with sensitive or itchy skin as well as mums who want to stay cool and comfy wearing maternity shorts in warmer climates.

The SRC Under the Bump Pregnancy Shorts treat multiple conditions and provide comfort with functionality for everyday wear without covering the belly. These breathable maternity compression shorts and leggings are made of anti-chafing fabric with adjustable waistbands that grow with the bump to avoid irritation caused by friction, itchiness, and heat during warmer climates.

Choose Under the Bump Pregnancy Shorts:

  • If you don’t want to cover your belly

  • If you have sensitive and itchy skin

  • If you feel hot or live in warmer climates

Are Compression Shorts Good for Pregnancy?

Yes, they are. However, not all compression shorts are suitable for pregnancy. For instance, SRC Compression shorts are the only evidence-based pregnancy garments proven to provide pelvic support and reduce discomfort from mild to moderate varicose veins in the upper thigh and vulvar varicosities. They are breathable, comfortable, and offer pelvic support throughout the day.

When Should You Start Wearing Maternity Shorts?

Mums-to-be typically begin wearing maternity shorts between 12 to 16 weeks into their pregnancy. This is when the belly begins to expand noticeably, and regular clothing may start feeling snug or uncomfortable. Maternity shorts should offer adjustable waistbands or stretchy panels to accommodate the growing belly. 

However, the timing can vary depending on individual body changes and preferences. Ultimately, choosing to wear maternity support shorts is about personal comfort when regular shorts become impractical as the belly expands. 

What do Pregnancy Recovery Shorts do?

Pregnancy recovery shorts are made to aid postpartum healing by providing support and compression to the abdominal and pelvic regions. They promote muscle recovery, reduce swelling, and offer comfort during the postpartum period. 

With the SRC Recovery Shorts, mums can speed up their postpartum recovery. These recovery shorts are designed to assist in the treatment of abdominal muscle separation (DRAM), C-Section, and Perineal wounds and are endorsed by the Australian Physiotherapy Association and the Australian College of Midwives.

With no buttons, Velcro, or zips, SRC Recovery Shorts will not snag or require constant adjustments, allowing mums to move conveniently and freely after delivery and making lifting, feeding, bathing, and caring for your little one easier.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Can you wear SRC shorts while pregnant?

Yes, you can wear SRC Pregnancy Shorts during your pregnancy. These maternity shorts were designed by women for women in consultation with a Melbourne Obstetrician Grant Saffer. The SRC Pregnancy Shorts are ideal for expecting mums, as they deliver targeted compression to treat multiple conditions such as low back and pelvic girdle pain, as well as vulval varicosities and mild to moderate leg varicose veins. They provide support to the pelvic area through gentle yet constant compression, activating muscles, encouraging core stability, and reducing swelling and muscle fatigue. Wearing SRC Pregnancy Shorts while pregnant not only offers comfort but also overall support for you during your pregnancy.

Why shouldn't you wear tight clothes when pregnant?

Wearing tight clothes during pregnancy can cause problems because it constricts blood flow. This can lead to discomfort, skin irritation and yeast infections.  Additionally, tight or restrictive clothing can also exacerbate symptoms like heartburn and indigestion. Wearing loose and breathable clothing or specialist compression maternity garments like the SRC Pregnancy Shorts allows for circulation, comfort, support, and flexibility as the body undergoes changes during pregnancy.

Does wearing tight shorts affect pregnancy?

Wearing tight shorts during pregnancy can increase discomfort due to restricted movement, constricted blood flow, and potential chafing. Comfort is key during pregnancy, so choosing clothing that allows you to move freely and doesn't constrict the abdomen is advisable. 

Is it OK to wear tight jeans when pregnant?

It's generally not recommended to wear tight jeans during pregnancy, as they can restrict blood flow, cause discomfort,. Opting for specialist compression maternity shorts or leggings with stretchy panels or choosing loose-fitting pants ensures comfort and accommodates the growing belly without compromising circulation or health.

What is the best wear for pregnant women?

The best wear for pregnant women includes loose-fitting and breathable clothing such as maternity dresses, tops, and pregnancy shorts with stretchy waistbands. Comfortable, supportive footwear is also essential. Specialist compression maternity garments such as the SRC Pregnancy Shorts are recommended as they accommodate the growing belly, provide flexibility, offer support, and prioritise comfort to promote well-being throughout pregnancy.
