"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 then 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."

"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!"

"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!"

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.”

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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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.”
