“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!

"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."

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.

"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.

--- F.B. Godfrey, Australia

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)

--- D.Levido

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."

--- D. Kirkham, AUS

“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.”
