Why are the SRC Recovery Shorts so popular?

The original and first SRC Health product that started the postpartum compression garment category, the Recovery Shorts (Knee Length) is still a best seller combining the benefits of treating multiple conditions with the added bonus of providing improved venous return, something not present in the SRC Recovery Shorts Mini Length. They can be worn under jeans, pants and dresses or even on their own as outerwear a la Kim Kardashian! The Recovery Shorts are often still worn for years after the recovery period is over as they are ideal for exercise as well as for aesthetic reasons under fitted clothing.

Product Information


1. Muscle Activation

The unique SRC compression garment technology stimulates and activates muscles by providing gentle pressure / support to the pelvis, back and abdominal muscles. A corset, girdle, or rigid support garment would simply deactivate muscles and not allow for wear beyond a few hours without providing therapeutic benefits. You can be confident that your SRC Recovery shorts are doing their job from day one, even when you’re not active.

2. Swelling Reduction

Fitting like a 2nd skin, the gentle compression in the recovery shorts helps you get mobile faster after both a vaginal or C-section delivery and improves venous return.

3. Wound Support and Pain Reduction

SRC compression garments provide gentle compression to wounds. Whether you have had a C-section delivery or stitches/tears to the perineum, the Knee Length SRC Recovery Shorts can assist with reducing wound swelling and pain and promote a faster and safer recovery.


SRC Recovery Shorts Regular Length have been designed in consultation with the Melbourne obstetrician Dr. Grant Saffer. The garment’s Anatomically Support Panels (ASP) fit with the curves of the female anatomy and deliver consistent gentle medical grade compression at 4-15mmHg. The garment delivers exceptional fit and maximum support without any feeling of restriction. Designed for use in the first 8-10 weeks after childbirth they can be worn for as long as they provide benefit, and many mothers wear their recovery shorts for exercise or for aesthetic reasons under fitted clothing long after the initial recovery period.

SRC Recovery shorts feature a proprietary fabric and breathable power mesh lining. These fabrics are independently and scientifically tested with test showing that the SRC fabric and its construction is not only of the highest quality, but it consistently delivers continuous gentle graduated compression over time. To achieve this, high performance fabric panels are cut in multiple planes to provide multi-directional stretch performance or what we call TCC – True Cross Compression, which means that SRC compression garments retain their stretch and strength characteristics longer than some leading sports compression brands!


Begin wearing your SRC Recovery Shorts as soon as you feel able post-delivery. It may take a few days for your SRC Recovery Shorts to feel fully comfortable because of fluid retention.

If you have had stitches to the perineal area after a vaginal delivery you should change your maternity pad every 2 hours. Please DO NOT wear a pad that has a plastic backing or lining. This may cause the area to sweat which will increase the risk of infection. Wash the area with saltwater and dry well following each pad change. Wear your recovery shorts during the day only while your perineal stitches are healing. Once the area is fully healed you can wear SRC Recovery Shorts both day and night.

Your SRC Recovery Shorts should feel supportive without any feeling of restriction. The elastic at the top may feel a little tight even though the garment is otherwise comfortable because during pregnancy some women find that their ribs expand to accommodate the growing baby. You can solve this by putting the elastic on continuous gentle stretch for a number of hours. Please contact us should you require further information.

You can alternate between your SRC Recovery Shorts Length and a SRC Sports garment as soon as you feel you no longer require as much upper abdominal support throughout the entire day and the swelling of the upper abdominal area has decreased significantly.

SRC Sports garments have been designed to allow you to comfortably return to exercise, while supporting your pelvis, lower back and legs. Your SRC Recovery Shorts will perform best when washed every 3 days. For continued support, while the recovery shorts are in the wash you can wear your SRC Sports Leggings or ¾ Lengths Leggings.
