Designed in consultation with an obstetrician for the ultimate in comfort and functionality SRC Pregnancy Shorts - Mini Over the Bump are specifically designed to help you get back to enjoying your pregnancy. See below for more information
SRC Pregnancy Garments have been speciﬁcally designed to support your ‘baby carrying pelvis’ and reduce the stress placed on it through your pregnancy. This allows you to stay at work for longer, helps you get back on your feet and move around more easily and just generally makes you feel like yourself again.
Patented Anatomical Support Panels (ASP) in the SRC Pregnancy Garments deliver targeted compression, ideal for treating multiple conditions like lower back pain, pelvic girdle pain and mild varicose veins as well as vulvar varicosities.
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 triple layer compression ASP including the gusset panel, have been shown to significantly help with the pressure associated with vulval veins.
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.

This is a question we get asked a lot by women wondering which lengt and style (Over the Bump or Under the Bump) will be the best fit for their needs. Each garment has very slight variations and more than anything else, it comes down to personal preference for each customer.
Over the bump products do not have any compression over the belly, however, some women prefer to be fully covered to achieve the feeling of extra support. Both styles provide the exact same level of compression and it is up to the individual on what style they would prefer. Here’s our rule of thumb:
Under the Bump:
Over the Bump:

Yes! We think our Pregnancy garments are your perfect sleeping companion. You will feel supported and stable as you sleep, waking up feeling refreshed. The gentle compression does not deactivate your muscles and will assist in minimizing pelvic pain.
You should wear your SRC Pregnancy Shorts or Leggings for as many hours as they feel comfortable. Your shorts or leggings can be worn both day and night.
SRC Pregnancy garments will assist with relieving symptoms of vulvar varicosities, however, for mild varicose veins and leg swelling we recommend the SRC Pregnancy Leggings rather than the Shorts Mini Length.
*Please note: SRC Pregnancy Leggings have a gentle level of graduated compression in the legs. These are suitable for women with mild varicose veins or swelling. This product will not provide enough compression for moderate or severe varicose veins of the legs.
Women often complain that wearing a grade 2 or 3 compression stocking for long periods can be difficult due to them becoming hot and tight. We hear you! That’s why the SRC Leggings were designed with a specific level of compression so that women can wear their compression stockings under the SRC Leggings for a number of hours during the day.
Once the compression stockings have been removed the SRC Leggings will continue to provide mild graduated compression so the the benefit of having worn the stockings is not lost.
SRC Pregnancy Shorts and Leggings have been designed in consultation with a leading Melbourne obstetrician, Dr. Grant Saffer. The targeted anatomical support panels fit perfectly with your natural curves and deliver consistent gentle compression.
The garment provides superior support without any feeling of restriction.
SRC Health has the most extensive and evidence-based maternity compression range in the world that has been designed by women, for women.
We are committed to implementing findings from the latest scientific and medical research into our garments to support women in their maternity journey.
SRC Pregnancy garments are registered with the Therapeutic Goods Administration and endorsed by the Australian Physiotherapy Association.
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. Measure at any time during your pregnancy for SRC Pregnancy Shorts or Leggings.

The sizing was accurate and great shorts to feel supported in pregnancy when dealing with lower back pain.
Nothing else helped the pain from my large vulvar varicose vein/swelling other than these shorts! They made me able to get through the day- I put them on before getting out of bed and wore all day under my clothes. I got a second pair so that I could always have one clean. No other products like straps, shorts etc. helped like these did!
As someone who has had vulval varicosities for my past 3 pregnancies these are an absolute must have. I received my order this pregnancy at 14 weeks (I wore the tights for my entire last pregnancy too) and it has been an instant relief. i wear them day and night under my clothes and they are the best. I must say I am surprised at how comfy the over the bump pair is. It has honestly made me feel so much better and pain and swelling is already reduced!
