"After having my baby by emergency C-section, I was feeling pretty sore and sorry for myself. I was keen to get back into my daily exercise routine, but didn’t know how to go about healing myself with that goal in mind. SRC Recovery Shorts made the weeks after birth much more comfortable and, therefore, made me more confident in returning to my normal work routine, while learning how to be a Mum! SRC Sports Shorts assisted me to return to exercise, which of course helped me to start feeling in control and like myself again. I was grateful for all the support!"

As a High Performance Coach and Tennis Specialist, I have followed with interest the research and development of compression garments over the past 10 years.  While the research validated the performance benefits of wearing compression clothing for training, competition and recovery, I had not found any garments I could recommend with confidence until now.

The Activate range from SRC meet all the requirements elite athletes look for in performance apparel.  It's the first compression range that I have found that validates the research. 

"As a coach to elite tennis players for the past 20 years, I have tested all available brands, styles and designs of compression clothing with athletes and for myself.  Until now, none have been suitable for the demands of high performance training, competition or recovery, as they all lost their compression, rode up, fell down or fell apart in the wash. 

The Activate range by SRC are a superior product to everything I have used and tested with elite athletes in the past 10 years.   

The high waist means they 'stay up', with the lumbar spine and core muscles being supported.  The garment and waist band do not lose their elasticity after wearing for multiple hrs. each day.  I have run, rode bike, trained in gym, coached and played tennis in the shorts for up to 6 hrs. a day and it's the first compression garment I have not needed to significantly adjust during any activity.  Compression in the gluteus, quadriceps and hamstrings is superior to everything I have used.  I highly recommend these to any athlete, coach or physically active person looking to receive the benefits compression clothing offers.  I consider it an essential piece of training and performance equipment for athletes and essential workout garment for anyone with an active lifestyle of physically demanding profession".

“I have been wearing the SRC Capri leggings during different forms of exercise (weights, running, Pilates) to test how they feel compared to normal activewear and I can really feel the difference. As a physiotherapist and clinical Pilates instructor I am all about core muscle activation and correct posture and the SRC leggings encourage the right muscles to switch on which in turn help technique. I was impressed at how breathable the material was: these are thicker really supportive leggings! And they are not see through! I have been recommending them to all my clients…”

--- Claire Shield Physiotherapist and Clinical Pilates Instructor, Your Health Domain, Sydney

As a first time user of SRC Health Activate leggings I was astounded by how supportive I felt in them all day long. I felt like I walked taller, that my posture had improved and that I not only looked but felt much firmer. Overall, it was like being hugged all day and I can’t wait to wear them again and again and again!
Cheers,

"I’m a 42 year old mother of four children my youngest now 6 yrs old. I love my exercise which includes running, weights, riding and swimming. Over the years I have found that running and riding in particular gave me a lot of lower back pain and tightness. Since wearing SRC Sports Shorts I no longer suffer from lower back pain and can now do a hard 10km run without tightness in that area. The shorts are also great to wear in Pump classes (weights) – I can get out of bed much more easily the next day without the previous stiffness that I suffered from. They are now my choice of sportswear!"

"Going into my first pregnancy I had suffered sacroiliac joint, hip and lower disc pain for about five years. My condition was so severe I would have regular cortisone injections into my SIJ joints a few times a year, to relieve the inflammation and pain, not to mention the physio visits! I was very concerned as to how I would manage the pain throughout pregnancy as the weight of the baby increased and put more pressure on my pelvic joints and back. Many people had many theories as to how my back problems would hold up during pregnancy but around the 30 week mark I experienced very bad pelvic instability and lower back pain.

I already had a cupboard full of back support braces and pelvic belts etc, but had heard about SRC Pregnancy Shorts and thought why not give them a go? When they arrived I was a bit skeptical as they felt like they probably wouldn’t have enough support for me, but after persisting and wearing them for around 20 hours a day, and during the night, the results were instant. I absolutely loved them!

I felt fully supported standing for long periods at work, and I could easily wear them under my clothes without feeling bulky. They offered such wonderful relief around the pubic bone area. Not to mention they were comfortable and the fabric breathes, which for me was so important, being pregnant during the hot summer months. I look forward to getting into the Recovery Shorts now!"

--- Bridget McIntyre- TV Presenter Brand Power

In both my pregnancies, I experienced debilitating hip, back and leg pain. I was in so much pain that I wasn’t able to continue working and walking literally made me cry. There were even times my partner had to carry me up our stairs. I dreaded going anywhere because I was in so much pain. I went regularly to my physiotherapist and used a belly belt but any relief from pain was momentary.

When I was 25 weeks into my second pregnancy I was at a Baby Expo – waddling along in great pain and stopping at each booth to lean on any table to take the pressure off my hips, back and legs. The women at the SRC booth suggested I try on the SRC pregnancy Leggings. I was quite reluctant to even try on the Leggings as I figured I only had 15 weeks remaining and I just couldn’t believe that anything could alleviate my pain. The women at the booth, observing my pain, allowed me to “try the Leggings” for the rest of my time at the Expo, and so I reluctantly agreed to give them a try. What I thought was a risk was quite simply the wisest decision I had made in a really long time. I spent hours at the Expo wandering around and enjoyed a wonderful afternoon being painfree. Instead of waddling along and having to rest and lean on my partner, I was able to stride along and keep up with my 2 year old. It was amazing. When I wore the SRC pregnancy Leggings I could walk, jump, squat…really, it’s not an exaggeration to say they gave me back my ability to be active and enjoy my pregnancy. If I hadn’t experienced it myself I wouldn’t have believed that I could have relief from the pain that had been so present throughout my pregnancies.

I returned to the SRC booth and purchased 2 pairs of pregnancy Leggings and am so very grateful that the staff suggested I just give them a try. I wore those Leggings every day for the remaining 15 weeks. Every time I thought I could wear something else, I had to return to my closet within moments and put on the SRC Leggings. It was good I had 2 pairs as I even ended up wearing them to bed – that’s how significantly they diminished my pain.

If you are going to purchase one single pregnancy clothing item, you will not regret choosing the SRC pregnancy Leggings.

With Gratitude

“As a specialist obstetrician I had so much positive feedback that I became a stockist for SRC products and now include a pair of the recovery shorts in my of obstetric package. Based on this positive feedback I can thoroughly recommend SRC pregnancy and recovery garments.”

"During my pregnancy I suffered from sciatica from 14 weeks. I invested in some SRC pregnancy pants from 20 weeks after advise from several friends and health professionals. From 20 weeks I could walk again and also go back to the gym! These pants were my lifesaver! I decided to invest in some post pregnancy pants, and the difference has been enormous. The support is great and also the confidence in wearing them to support my core. I LOVE the post pregnancy ones, I've even convinced my friends to get them as well. As a health professional, I know the importance to working on post pregnancy separation so I am so glad I got these shorts. I LOVE SRC and their products, and the confidence and support I got them was life changing this pregnancy compared to my first."

" During my pregnancy I loved my pregnancy SRC tights. It's difficult to find options that are both practical and comfortable but this is exactly what the SRC tights are along with all the added extra benefits that they offer such as support during the nine months. Since giving birth to my boy Barney, I have lived in the post pregnancy tights. They are not only the most comfortable garment but I feel so much positive reinforcenent in terms of looking after my body in helping me repair my ab seperation and getting my pelvic floor strength back to what is was prior to falling pregnant"

--- Laura Geitz

During my recent pregnancy with twins I suffered from back and Pelvis problems from the weight of the babies I was carrying. My physio recommended SRC Pregnancy Shorts. These shorts helped support my lower back and pelvis and really helped get me through my pregnancy. I had a Caesarean section at 36 weeks due to complications. This left me understandably sore. My physio recommended the SRC Recovery Shorts. The shorts are amazing, they are comfortable and supportive at the same time. I notice a big difference in the pain from my c-section wound when I am not wearing the shorts to hardly any pain when I am wearing them. I would highly recommend both the pregnancy shorts and recovery shorts.

I am 28 years old and pregnant with my first child.

A pharmacist, Stephen from Whites Dispensary South Melbourne, recommended SRC Pregnancy Short for my lower back pain at 20th weeks pregnancy. He assisted me getting correctly measured and recommended that I wear the garment everyday.

I work in retail and stand on my feet at least 8 hours everyday. At 20th weeks pregnancy, my back and hip hurt everyday after work and got worse as my belly grow. I had to lie down frequently and felt needle like pain in my back. I couldn't get out of bed as easily as before being pregnant.

When I was wearing SRC Pregnancy Shorts, I felt more supported in my pelvic area and it gave me more strength to walk, stand and kneel down. After the second day, I don't have any needle sensations in my back. I like the durable and breathable fabric as I can still wear SRC Shorts under leggings, pants or a dress. I will continue wearing SRC Pregnancy Shorts for the rest of my pregnancy and recommend to my girl friends.

Can I start by saying that I NEVER write reviews for products. However, the SRC over the bump pregnancy shorts are WORTHY of a review. I don't know what magical powers these shorts contain but man they have changed my life!! I'm currently 29 weeks pregnant with my first baby and these are the reasons I don't regret spending a single dollar on these shorts:

  1. I have been suffering with sacroiliac joint pain since about 20 weeks. Some days the pain is fine and I don't really notice any issues, but on other days, once that joint flares up it is agony for the remainder of the day. I'm a fairly fit and healthy 27 year old but the moment this joint in my lower back/bum gets angry, I hobble around like an 80 year old woman and some days can barely put any weight through my legs. I literally can not move and the only relief was to go to bed, hope by some miracle I slept ok, and then have the joint be less angry by morning. Within 10 mins of pulling these shorts on I have noticed relief. I ended up being on the smallest measurement of the next size up and I would not say that the shorts are tight by any means (they are very easy to get on and off compared to some of the reviews I have read) and so I was worried they wouldn't be effective. But the packaging does say the shorts don't have to be tight to work and they are not lying - these shorts give my sacroiliac joint instant support and relief without sucking the breath out of me - they are incredible!

  2. On certain days I have had really sore abdominal muscles as my belly has been stretching for baby - the over the bump support has been such a relief for 'holding everything in' and giving these sore, stretching muscles extra support. I have particularly noticed this in bed when I go to roll over onto my other side. Before I had these shorts, rolling over and 'taking my belly with me' was a lot of effort and sometimes hurt the muscles. With these shorts on, everything feels so secure I can flip from side to side with no worries at all!

  3. Lastly, I am not a side sleeper and have never been. I miss being able to sleep on my belly or my back and as we have a very firm mattress, I was waking regularly during the night with very severe aching in my hip joint and bones from the pressure. Some nights I would have to get up and massage/stretch the sides of my legs to stop the ache - there was no way I could get back to sleep until it settled down. Since wearing the SRC shorts to bed, I DON'T WAKE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT. Obviously sometimes I have to use the bathroom (!) but I have noticed I don't ever wake to aching hips and sides since wearing these shorts.

If you are battling with any of the complaints above, take a chance and try these shorts - I could not live without them now! It is only spring but we have had some very hot days and these shorts have not irritated me or my skin one bit. Obviously you are wearing an extra layer, but the over the bump fabric is very breathable and the benefits above mean I couldn't care a less about the temperature when I'm otherwise feeling so damn good!!

Catriona Rowntree – TV Presenter Getaway

Getaway star and mother of two gorgeous boys, Catriona Rowntree credits her stunning pre-pregnancy shape to a healthy lifestyle and wearing the recovery shorts following the birth of each of her two babies.

Just weeks after giving birth, Catriona was delighted to be back in her jeans.

"For centuries there have been all sorts of different ways to try and get your body back into shape. I wore the SRC Recovery Shorts following my pregnancies and unlike any other products on the market, the recovery shorts allowed my body to recover well and bounce back into shape. I was able to get back into my old clothes within a few weeks."

A girlfriend of mine told me about the SRC pregnancy shorts and leggings following her pregnancy and recommended them. She said, “this wonderful Australian invention help put everything back in line”. I wore the shorts in the first weeks after giving birth to both of my children and they gave me the support I needed after pregnancy and snapped everything back to normal. After delivering my baby, a healthy 10.5 pound bundle of joy, I began wearing the recovery shorts  from day 2 and with the combination of being healthy before and during pregnancy, then breastfeeding and wearing the shorts, my body bounced back to shape in no time. I’m so happy my body is back to normal."

My pelvic pain began late in the 2nd trimester and quickly progressed. Within just a couple of days I went from minor discomfort to hardly being able to walk.  I searched on the internet for my symptoms and found the SRC website and decided it was worth a shot.  Within a couple of hours of receiving them, I felt pain relief, and after several hours I was rushing up and down the hall and realized I was able to run to the bathroom because I had the shorts on! I consider them a vital investment in my healthy pregnancy.

--- Emily Gallimore - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA

“Despite being a relatively healthy and active individual, my second pregnancy has been met with unforeseen complications from the very beginning.  The most physically uncomfortable and emotionally stressful condition came around the 5th month of pregnancy when we realized that our daughter was sitting so low that I began to have significant swelling around the upper thighs and vulvar varicosities as a result.  These conditions were painful and prevented me from performing daily operations at work and at home - with a sudden switch to a sedentary lifestyle within days.  The doctors recommended a maternity support band to help relieve some of the pressure.  I bought some that had groin support bands to help with the pressure.  These were positively reviewed to aid in managing discomfort surrounding varicosities.  While they provided limited relief, I still experienced discomfort and ultimately thought that they were cumbersome to manoeuvre and impractical to wear at work. 

During my research into vulvar varicosities, two items were mentioned to help with compression.  One was the band that I had already tried, and the other was the SRC Pregnancy Shorts.  I contacted customer support to get more information about the effectiveness of these shorts for my condition, and to inquire about the appropriate garment size that would be the best fit for me, given that I've already entered my third trimester.  I met Claire from customer support, and not only was she professional and prompt in her reply, she was also extremely thoughtful and a pleasure to talk to. 

I received the SRC Pregnancy Shorts a few days later, much faster than the anticipated 7-10 business days for international shipments.  The difference that these shorts made was literally night and day.  The size description was accurate.  The material was comfortable and durable - perfect to wear under existing clothes without being hot for the entire day, and already withstanding several washes.  The compression was comfortably firm without feeling like it was going to cut off circulation, and the support it offered throughout my entire pelvic region was indescribable.  I can't even express in words how much these shorts have helped with pain management in such a short amount of time.  I honestly think that was the first time in about 2 months that I could move uninhibited, and that freedom meant so much.  The reassurance that I'll be able to last the next 2 months means EVERYTHING.  If anybody else suffers from similar medical conditions, I think that the SRC Pregnancy product line is an essential and worthwhile investment.  I immediately went back and ordered the SRC Pregnancy Leggings in the same size, and can proudly say that I'm a loyal advocate for SRC Health products.  Thank you so much!”

“In my first pregnancy I developed SPD (Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction) at 28 weeks and in my second pregnancy I developed SPD at 13 weeks. In both cases SRC Pregnancy Shorts and Leggings formed an important part of my strategy to maintain mobility. I wore them 24hrs a day, sleeping in them right up to my delivery. They reduced pain immensely in my hips and groin and supported me when I developed back pain for short periods during growth spurts. The lightweight breathable fabric provided superior comfort and allowed me to wear them under my uniform at work and under day to day clothes. Personal experience together with the fact that SRC Pregnancy Leggings and Shorts have been designed in consultation with an obstetrician is why I highly recommend for them for women who are experiencing pregnancy related lower back pain, pelvic Instability, pelvic girdle pain, symphysis pubis pain, varicose veins and vulval varicosities, fluid retention, symptoms of incontinence, and to women wanting to continue working and or exercising during their pregnancy.”

--- Anita, www.FitFor2.com.au

"I have been recommending the SRC pregnancy and recovery range to women for years.  If I had my way it would be standard practice for ALL women to be fitted for recovery shorts. The SRC products are a no brainer, every little bit counts in the early post-partum period so it is easy to recommend a specialised supportive garment that helps reduce low back and pelvic pain and assists in the recovery and knitting back together of the abdominal region! All my patients have reported positive results after making use of both the pregnancy and recovery shorts, commenting on their comfortable fit and ability to exercise freely in the garments while also being able to hide them discreetly under everyday clothing.  My first gift to all friends and family post baby delivery is a SRC Recovery Shorts Fitting (I hope the favour is one day returned)!"

--- Petra Koenig, www.thestudiorozelle.com.au

“As a physiotherapist and a mum of an active 2-year-old I was very conscious of staying strong and fit during my pregnancy. Despite my fitness efforts at 32 weeks I suffered from significant pelvic instability and found it very difficult to even take a few steps. I tried tape, an SIJ compression belt, exercises, rest but nothing was helping. Finally, I decided to try the SRC Pregnancy shorts. When I put them on they felt so comfortable, I wasn't sure that they would help but, within a few hours I was feeling much more secure and could walk with much less pain. Combining the shorts with my rehab helped the most and I was very grateful that ! would get through the final 2 months of pregnancy with less discomfort. I would highly recommend the shorts to anyone with pelvic issues in pregnancy.”

My name is Liz, and I am lucky enough to work at Pelvic Health Melbourne.
I wanted to provide some feedback on how supportive and helpful I am finding the SRC pregnancy leggings, which are helping keep my sacroiliac niggles at bay whilst I am learning all the amazing things my body can do during this pregnancy with my first baby. I am very impressed with how supported I feel wearing the leggings, which not only helps me functionally from a teaching and working point of view, but also enables me to continue with my gym training which is of huge importance to me as I try to stay active during this time of change my pregnant body is going through.
I am scheduled to have a Caesarean in September this year and plan to wear the recovery shorts as I have had great feedback from so many of my clients that they help with recovery of both vaginal and Caesarean deliveries

--- E.Elsbury, Pelvic Health Melbourne

As my second pregnancy has progressed, I am so grateful to have finally found a product that is helping to relieve my back and pelvic pain. Being able to adjust the waistband is fantastic, as the leggings can grow with your bump. The back panelling in the leggings are so supportive as well and have made my lower back feel so much stronger. l onlyr wish I had known about these leggings for my first pregnancy!!!

--- D.Kelly

I loved my SRC shorts for both pre and post natal care. I am prone to lower back pain and so naturally carrying our baby put extra strain on the area - but the SRC pregnancy shorts literally saved me. Light and streamlined, as I began to feel lower back pressure, I started wearing the shorts daily under my clothes and the support instantly relieved me, making especially the third trimester comfortable. Then after the birth of our beautiful baby girl the recovery shorts did wonders speeding up the healing process. I had been recommended them by a number of friends who said they worked miracles, and they did! The extra support they provided helped my body heal quickly. The SRC pregnancy and recovery shorts are mummy-to-be must haves!

--- Lizzy Lovette

I just received my compression shorts and they are A. MAZING!!! I put them on and it was instant relief after a long day at work.. these are gonna to get me through the rest of my pregnancy so much more comfortably.
Thank you so much! I might have to get another pair for my next pregnancy!

--- J.Youngman, New Zealand

"I suffered from lower back pain during my pregnancy. At 26 weeks I began wearing SRC Pregnancy Shorts and the benefits were immediate. Amazing support and comfort and my back pain disappeared almost immediately. SRC Pregnancy Shorts helped me and they can help you too."

--- Brooke Hanson, Olympic Champion

"SRC Pregnancy shorts have eliminated my sciatic discomfort, while wearing them. I am on my feet about 6-8 hours a day doing massage therapy. Between carrying a 50 lb massage table, driving, and working on my patients my sciatic nerves were severely compacted with pressure. The day I tried the shorts I was suffering from Right Sciatic Nerve pain. The moment I tried them on, my pain literally went completely away. I will say, if I do not wear the shorts my lumbar area is painful. To mend the issue, I simply wear them all the time. It has given me the ability to continue working without pain.  I have been wearing the pregnancy shorts for about 12 hours a day (through my workouts and about 7-8 hours of massages). I don’t currently sleep with it on. My back does ache during the night. I am strongly thinking about just wearing them constantly except in the shower, just to keep continual relief :)"

--- Kristina Schmidt. Florida USA

"After suffering from serious sciatic pain during my current pregnancy I was starting to come to terms with the fact that for the next 5 months I was going to be in pain. I was regularly attending myotherapy appointments to gain relief from the pain I was having and the results were only temporary. I was unable to get through most of my day pain free, I saw SRC Pregnancy Shorts on TV and thought what could the harm be. Things were only going to get worse as I got bigger. I received my shorts and put them on as soon as I unpacked them and within 1-2hrs I was walking, sitting and standing with no pain. At the day's end I was hesitant to take them off but I wasn't going without them the next day. These shorts are extremely supportive and comfortable and I wear them under everything. Thank you for providing such a supportive product that I cannot sing the praises of enough. I look forward to ordering my Recovery Shorts in a few months time."

--- K. Anderson, Kialla

I find SRC Pregnancy Shorts extremely comfortable to wear. The material is silky soft and fits discretely under my clothes. I wore the garment in both cold and hot climates and it was fine to wear all day in the hot weather. The garment offers fabulous support and relief from the pain associated with vulval varicosities. I found that if I forgot to wear it, by the end of the day my varicose veins were throbbing and pronounced. This does not happen when I put the garment on in the morning and wear it all day. So far I haven’t had any more veins appear and am hoping that with continued daily use of SRC Pregnancy Shorts I won’t get any more.."

“In terms of the C section, I honestly felt like I was in no pain at all post op when I had these on, all the pelvic pain I had throughout my pregnancy went away and it just felt like I was put back together again. It's weird but, totally how I feel. I am sleeping in the post pregnancy ones now.”

After a long, drawn out and unsuccessful labour then an Emergency Caesarean, I had no energy at all and felt like I had absolutely zero core strength. My tummy was a wobbling hot mess. I found it hard to lift my bub from certain heights I.e hospital crib while still attached to the drips – at home I found it hard to get out of bed without my Caesar line aching.

Now I won’t lie, I nearly fainted when I first saw the price of these pants. The most I had ever spent on a pair of jeans was like $60. But a girlfriend who’d had 2 Caesars swore by them. So I decided to bite the bullet and give them a go and ordered a pair online. They arrived a day later.

I wore the recovery pants, underneath my everyday clothes, for 3 months. They helped me feel supported always. They actually improved my posture. They relived pain from my healing Caesar scar. Surprisingly, they seemed to soothe my aching hips and lower back. My bloated and gassy tummy started to reduce and my scar rapidly healed. I could wear some of my old clothing as I also didn’t feel as self-conscious because the materials used made me feel instantly trimmer and a lot more taut!

I occasionally wore the pants underneath my clothes from time to time, over the next few years if my lower back or hips felt a little sore.

When I had my second baby, the same recovery pants were packed into my hospital bag! From my first shower after my 2nd Caesar, I wore them daily with fantastic results again. My second bub had reflux and I would be feeding and awake most nights for her first year. Getting up and down to feed and nurse all night would take its toll on my lower back. To help this, I would wear the recovery shorts to bed some nights!

I’ve had my shorts for nearly 6 years and the amount of times I’ve worn them, I estimate to work out at around 20c per wear. It’s a big lay-out up front I know, but I can say honestly these pants worked so well for me that I’m recommending them as my number 1 Best Bub Idea!

--- Chezzi Denyer

As a result of my amazing experience with the SRC Pregnancy Leggings I already anticipated that the Recovery Leggings would be as profoundly helpful…and now, just 8 weeks after the birth of my second bub, I could rave on about the impact of these Leggings on my post birth recovery. These Leggings were a game changer. I wish I’d known about this product after my first bub because my recovery this time has been so much faster.

The Leggings instantly alleviated my back and hip pain which was so important as I was recovering, carrying my newborn, and chasing after my 2 year old. They helped me feel stable and physically strong. I put them on just a few hours after the birth of my bub and was able to stand upright confidently. For me this was very different from the experience I had after my first baby when I felt unstable and physically vulnerable. They changed the story I had in my head about recovering after the birth of a baby.

I was able to start exercising and have been using the Restore Your Core Program with great success. I’m now back into my pre-pregnancy clothes. More importantly though, I feel healthy, strong and confident in my body.

With gratitude,

--- Alexis Cros

I was advised to use this product for after my C Section, and thank goodness I did! They are amazing! I purchased the ‘Mini shorts’ It has helped with the tenderness & improved my movement from carrying my newborn, walking etc.
I highly recommended these! They are a god sen

--- S.Grech

They are so comfortable and give enough compression without feeling like a squashed sausage after giving birth. Nearly 10 years later I bought another pair after a back injury. Helps that my health insurer covered some of the costs too! Makes shopping for baby showers easy - Ive bought a pair for each if my friends as they've had their babies too ,

--- K.Monsta

Im a FTM and bought these recovery pants based on the reviews. I started wearing them less then 24hours after giving birth to my baby girl. I can tell you im nothing less then impressed. Its been a week since i had my daughter I've worn them every day and also of a night to bed. The only time i havent worn them has been for about an hour a day while they are washed and hung up to dry! They dry super fast and feel amazing. At first they were hard to get on but you get used to pulling them up and down when going to the toilet. Today i went for a jog with my pants on as im feeling so great! My stomach is nearly back to pre baby size! I think these pants have made me have an amazing recovery and will definately be recommending these to all my mumma friends!!!

--- J.Dawking

I have a pair of these and will be getting another!! Well worth it!
They've helped so much in the few days I've been wearing them after having my 2nd child, by the end of 2 weeks my symptoms dramatically improved and I felt next to no pain. So far I have pelvic pain and ligament problems which I suffered through pregnancy and I've also got abdominal separation and problems with my pelvic floor.... woo motherhood

--- A.Lewis

The tights were recommended to me by several friends after having an emergency c section after a quite a difficult pregnancy and labour. They are amazing, I went a week post birth without them and have been wearing my tights for 2 days now and don’t know where I’d be without them. My back pain is halved, my wound feels supported and my stomach is quickly going down. I love them so much I ordered a pair of the mini shorts today to wear under normal clothing. They also arrived to me in WA very quickly and I’ve been able to claim a portion on my private health. C section or not I highly recommend the recovery products post birth!

--- D.Lait

"I received my leggings today!! They really are like a second skin n support me in all the right places so much better than a band only I’ll have to get a pair for everyday of the week!"

"After having my baby by emergency C-section, I was feeling pretty sore and sorry for myself. I was keen to get back into my daily exercise routine, but didn’t know how to go about healing myself with that goal in mind. SRC Recovery Shorts made the weeks after birth much more comfortable and, therefore, made me more confident in returning to my normal work routine, while learning how to be a Mum! SRC Sports Shorts assisted me to return to exercise, which of course helped me to start feeling in control and like myself again. I was grateful for all the support!"

Catriona Rowntree – TV Presenter Getaway

Getaway star and mother of two gorgeous boys, Catriona Rowntree credits her stunning pre-pregnancy shape to a healthy lifestyle and wearing the recovery shorts following the birth of each of her two babies.

Just weeks after giving birth, Catriona was delighted to be back in her jeans.

"For centuries there have been all sorts of different ways to try and get your body back into shape. I wore the SRC Recovery Shorts following my pregnancies and unlike any other products on the market, the recovery shorts allowed my body to recover well and bounce back into shape. I was able to get back into my old clothes within a few weeks."

A girlfriend of mine told me about the SRC pregnancy shorts and leggings following her pregnancy and recommended them. She said, “this wonderful Australian invention help put everything back in line”. I wore the shorts in the first weeks after giving birth to both of my children and they gave me the support I needed after pregnancy and snapped everything back to normal. After delivering my baby, a healthy 10.5 pound bundle of joy, I began wearing the recovery shorts  from day 2 and with the combination of being healthy before and during pregnancy, then breastfeeding and wearing the shorts, my body bounced back to shape in no time. I’m so happy my body is back to normal."

“I have never had a c-section before, and didn’t know what to expect. The first time standing up was hmmm shall I say ‘interesting’...Nath had to put these on me the first day, stretching the top. Once on - I could walk again! Seriously a godsend. Number one, hands down, the best product I packed....I swear by SRC recovery shorts and they helped me with my confidence post c-section.

"I have been recommending the SRC pregnancy and recovery range to women for years.  If I had my way it would be standard practice for ALL women to be fitted for recovery shorts. The SRC products are a no brainer, every little bit counts in the early post-partum period so it is easy to recommend a specialised supportive garment that helps reduce low back and pelvic pain and assists in the recovery and knitting back together of the abdominal region! All my patients have reported positive results after making use of both the pregnancy and recovery shorts, commenting on their comfortable fit and ability to exercise freely in the garments while also being able to hide them discreetly under everyday clothing.  My first gift to all friends and family post baby delivery is a SRC Recovery Shorts Fitting (I hope the favour is one day returned)!"

“As a specialist obstetrician I had so much positive feedback that I became a stockist for SRC products and now include a pair of the recovery shorts in my of obstetric package. Based on this positive feedback I can thoroughly recommend SRC pregnancy and recovery garments.”

Hi guys.
I thought I should let you know... while I am laying in my hospital bed still, that your recovery shorts are by far the best things since slice bread! Second day wearing them after a caesarean & they make me feel so supported and they aren’t too tight that I feel too restricted. They have been a god send already, so I thank you!
Ps - the measuring guide is definitely on point & I used it to the tee when ordering my shorts & they fit PERFECTLY!
Keep doing what you guys are doing!
Much thanks,

--- X.Damahis

These Recovery Shorts were a god send after my c sections. Keep your guts tight so you’re not in as much pain and help with recovery. Can’t rave about them enough. Wore them the next day after giving birth and the difference is mind blowing.

I bought and loved your src shorts after I had my c section and I gave them to another mumma who couldn't afford them and was having a lot of problems and it solved her problems too! She has now rehomed them to another mum in need. I love how such a simple act changed their lives!
Also after buying other nursing tops and not being happy, I decided to try the SRC feeding tanks and tee tops, and they are the greatest! These tops are a must for the hospital bag when you deliver baby. Easy to use, comfortable and discreet. There are no annoying clips or buttons. After wearing them for 8 months they are still in the same condition I purchased them in and I can not be happier with the quality. I would buy these everyday if the week!

Hi there,
I’m 6 weeks postpartum and have had soooooo muchh success in keeping “dry" with the SRC recovery shorts. You see I have suffered from incontinence following the birth of my first child and usually wear a pessary. The shorts were recommended by a Physio and I had no idea how much they would help.
Thing is that the high waist is a bit annoying with my baby in a carrier and I’m keep to get back into some exercise and walking (most probably with baby in a carrier as she has reflux) so I'm wondering .......So the sports leggings provide the same support as the recovery pants around the pelvic area? (the answer is YES)

I loved my SRC shorts for both pre and post natal care. I am prone to lower back pain and so naturally carrying our baby put extra strain on the area - but the SRC pregnancy shorts literally saved me. Light and streamlined, as I began to feel lower back pressure, I started wearing the shorts daily under my clothes and the support instantly relieved me, making especially the third trimester comfortable. Then after the birth of our beautiful baby girl the recovery shorts did wonders speeding up the healing process. I had been recommended them by a number of friends who said they worked miracles, and they did! The extra support they provided helped my body heal quickly. The SRC pregnancy and recovery shorts are mummy-to-be must haves!

"I tried alternative support garments after my first 2 caesareans, but after my third caesarean, SRC Recovery Shorts is by far the most superior garment. It gives you amazing support and is so comfortable; it’s like a second skin. They also helped me regain my figure quickly. I highly recommend this garment to anyone having a baby."

--- A. Fox, Melbourne AUS

"I love these garments. There was a 2 inch split between my abdominal muscles after the birth of my second child and even though I didn’t get these garments until about one month post birth, they had an amazing impact. Not only did I feel much stronger through the core, they also helped reduce back ache by offering support when I bent down to pick up my (heavy!) son. The other real surprise for me was that I actually felt and looked slimmer almost immediately. This was an enormous and much needs confidence boost in the early days."

--- Liz, AUS

"During the pregnancy of my second child I developed extensive varicose veins everywhere from the waist down. The most painful one was in the middle of the front of my thigh with the most unsightly being behind my knee. The support offered by SRC Recovery Shorts significantly assisted in reducing the size and discomfort of all of these varicose veins. The comfortable firm design of the shorts not only assisted in reducing the gap between my stomach muscles but offered support to my back, waist and pelvic area. Subsequently this increased confidence in my core strength, general mobility and brought about more awareness to my posture."

--- Libby Salmon

"I was introduced to SRC Recovery Shorts through a friend. Initially I was cautious and a little bit sceptical about the value of items such as these but felt that I had nothing to lose in giving then a try. Immediately I was struck by their comfort. As a calisthenics instructor I have worn Lycra before but never has it felt so comfortable and supportive. These garments were a revelation to me. SRC Recovery Shorts undoubtedly helped with my fluid retention and I have lost 6cms off my hips already, much of which I put down to the recovery shorts. I would not hesitate to recommend these garments to any woman post childbirth. They are simply wonderful and I am pleased to have been introduced to them."

--- Melissa Graetz, Mercy Hospital for Women

"I commenced wearing the shorts the day after my second baby was born. I found the shorts to be extremely comfortable and immediately provided major support, compression and relief to my perineum and abdominal muscles.  Certain actions that I found very difficult while pregnant, such as rolling over in bed, became effortless. In addition, I felt very confident returning to my usual activities including lifting my 13 kg toddler and carrying her up and down stairs.  I had mild pelvic instability and moderate sacroiliac joint inflammation during my pregnancy and found these were markedly diminished while wearing the shorts. The shorts are made of luxurious, lightweight fabric so they were not obvious under my clothes. They were easy to launder. I found that the shorts regained their original size with each wash which meant they continued to provide effective support and compression to my shrinking tummy.  Further benefits from wearing the shorts were being able to fit into my regular jeans 7 days after giving birth and I’ve had many compliments about my post-pregnancy shape. Basically, wearing the shorts was like having a brand new, detachable six pack and pelvic floor."

“Having an emergency C section, I was concerned that my recovery and getting back to normal physical activity post baby would take much longer than planned. As a result, I thought getting back into my pre-pregnancy clothes would take months to achieve. But a girlfriend recommended I try the SRC recovery shorts. I slipped on the shorts two weeks after having Piper and I was amazed at how quickly my body recovered. I was back in my pre-baby jeans a week later. I had also encountered some pain in my lower back in the early days post-baby, but I found the SRC recovery shorts offered great support and relief, making breastfeeding and lifting my bub in and out of her cot a pain free experience.”

"I'm 23 years old and have recently undergone a 360 degree spinal fusion. I received a pair of SRC SurgiHeal shorts after my surgery and have been wearing them around the house and when I'm learning to walk. I have found them to be so helpful in assisting with my posture, reduced the pain of my abdominal area and helped reduce muscle soreness after walking. I definitely recommend them for anyone going through anything of a similar nature! Thank you so much SRC!!" 

--- Jessica Davis

“…although I didn’t have surgery, I am on my feet for most of the day as a hairdressing. The SRC SurgiHeal shorts provided me with leg relief and especially from my knees down, legs weren’t as tired. They were light weight and jeans slipped on like a glove.”

--- Vanessa Granata, Bundoora, Victoria, Australia

“Comfortable under my everyday clothes, I feel snug and secure. I wear them when I walk the dog as it’s great support for my lower back after surgery. I need more shorts as I don’t want to take them off!!!”
