absolute game changer!
I am truly thankful for discovering these compression garments!
I live in Austria, am currently pregnant with my third child, and after already having had varicose veins along my legs in the previous two pregnancies, have now developed vulvar varicosities. When I told my gynocologist about it, her response was: "Unfortunately there is nothing you can do about it except for lying down as often as you can during the day." Easier said than done with a 2 and a 4 year old at home... :(
My husband didn't believe there is nothing you can do and found the SRC website.
I have been wearing the over the bump leggins, shorts and mini shorts for the past 2 weeks and can truly say it has changed my life: from not being able to cook anymore, because standing in one position for more than a few seconds got too painful to being able to mow our lawn again with no complaints - truly a miracle!
One star less, because of sizing (I measured clearly for a size S and while the over the bump leggins fit me well, the under the bump shorts and mini shorts were too tight for me, even in the widest setting of the adjustable waist band).
Generally would say that the over the bump pair feels more comfortable, but since we are approaching the hot summer months here in Austria I don't think I will regret getting the shorts and mini shorts under the bump!
If I lived in a cooler climate or was mostly pregnant in winter, I would recommend all lenghts with the bump part!
Regarding the material and whether…
