With pregnancy compression garments when your measurement falls between sizes, we recommend that you select the size up to achieve the optimal fit.

5. HOW ARE MY SRC PREGNANCY SHORTS & LEGGINGS DIFFERENT FROM A MAINSTREAM SUPPORT SHORT?
Unlike mainstream compression products the proprietary fabrics are designed and tested specifically for our garments. The patent pending design features panels within the garment that have been specially located for pregnancy related conditions. The fabrics have been specifically developed and exclusively manufactured for SRC Pregnancy Compression Shorts & Leggings. There has been a structured approach to research, with the garment being tested by women in the months prior to childbirth. Collectively this process has been designed to ensure that the garment panels work together to provide you with maximum support and comfort. Finally, the manufacturing has been subject to the highest levels of quality control in a dedicated environment.

SRC RECOVERY
1. HOW DO I CARE FOR MY SRC RECOVERY SHORTS & LEGGINGS?
Recovery Wear and Care Instructions.pdfRecovery Wear and Care Instructions.pdf

2. WHY SHOULD I WEAR SRC RECOVERY SHORTS & LEGGINGS POST DELIVERY?
Your body in the first weeks post delivery is losing fluid gained during pregnancy. Research has shown that providing support to a wound or a swollen area reduces swelling and pain therefore aiding healing. Compression in the SRC Recovery garments provide you with greater core stability allowing you to mobilize more readily as they support your upper and lower abdominal muscles, caesarean wound and the perineum.

3. CAN I WEAR THIS PRODUCT DURING PREGNANCY?
The SRC Recovery Leggings and Shorts can only be worn for after birth, we do not recommend wearing them during your Pregnancy because of the gentle but sustained compression.

4. WHAT IS THE RIGHT LENGTH FOR ME?
There are 3 different lengths available in the range, with the "right one" being primarily a matter of preference and what you believe will provide the "most wear"

Leggings give the best venous return and great value for money,especially being a wardrobe staple that can be worn to the gym or to work.
Knee length gives a better venous return than the Mini.
Mini Lenght is more suitable to wear under shorts, skirts or dresses
Many customers continue to wear all of the length products not just to the gym but also for aesthetic reasons under fitted clothing.
5. HOW DO I WORK OUT MY SIZE?
You can simply take the information from here: https://www.srchealth.com/size-guide?size=srcrecovery

6. I'M RIGHT IN BETWEEN 2 SIZES, WHICH DO I CHOOSE?
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.

7. WHY DO THE LEGS OF THE GARMENT EXTEND TO THE KNEE?
There are several important reasons for this:

Some women suffer from varicose veins of the upper leg during pregnancy and our research has shown that having the legs finish at the knee provides effective support to these varicose veins.
The legs are also designed in this way to maximize the compression effect of the lower centre panel.
Having the leg longer also prevents it from riding up.
8. HOW ARE MY SRC RECOVERY SHORTS & LEGGINGS DIFFERENT FROM A MAINSTREAM SUPPORT SHORT?
Unlike mainstream compression products the proprietary fabrics are designed and tested specifically for our garments. The patent pending design features panels within the garment that have been specially located for recovery post delivery. The fabrics have been specifically developed and exclusively manufactured for SRC Recovery Shorts & Leggings. There has been a structured approach to research, with the garment being tested by women in the days and weeks after childbirth. Collectively this process has been designed to ensure that the garment panels work together to provide you with maximum support and comfort.

13. I HAVE SOME ABDOMINAL SEPARATION, IS IT TOO LATE FOR ME TO GET BENEFIT FROM THE RECOVERY SHORTS IF IT’S BEEN A FEW YEARS AFTER I HAD MY BABY?
We have many women ask us this same question.

This has provided significant benefit to many women with this issue.

2. WHEN SHOULD I BEGIN TO ALTERNATE BETWEEN MY SRC RECOVERY SHORTS AND MY SRC GARMENT?
Alternate between your SRC Recovery Shorts and your SRC Sports garment as soon as the swelling of the upper abdominal area is significantly reduced and you feel you no longer require as much upper abdominal support throughout the entire day. Continue to wear both for as long as they provide comfort and support. Wear your SRC Sports garment when you return to your regular exercise/sport routine thereafter.
