MEASUREMENT: Stand with your feet together. Place a measuring tape over the pubic bone and biggest part of the bottom. This will make a perfect circle around your hips at its widest part. Keep the tape straight and allow it to touch all points but do not pull it tight.
We advise you measure and order your SRC Recovery Shorts during or after the 36th week of pregnancy as your hip measurement may change during early to mid-pregnancy. If you already have had your baby you can measure at any time.
If in-between sizes it is recommended to go down a size.
Why do they work?
The gentle compression promotes supporting pressure to the pelvis, back and abdominal muscles improving your mobility and will actually help you regain your pre-baby body shape. Mobility is the key. By activating the core muscles with gentle compression this provides support and stimulates strengthening of the abdominal muscles facilitating muscle recovery.
Unique SRC garment technology enables muscular activity and promotes muscle stimulation. This is not possible if you - Choose - a corset, girdle, or rigid support garment. From day 1 you can be confident in the knowledge that your SRC recovery shorts are doing their job even when you’re not active.
Reduces pain and provides support
SRC compression garments provide gentle compression to a wound area. Whether you have C-section delivery or stitches/tears to the perineum the SRC Recovery shorts reduce wound tension and promotes a much faster and safer recovery.

Our packing team takes great pride in sending out orders quickly and efficiently. Dispatch time frames vary depending on the shipping option you have chosen (please see above section for details). 'Dispatched' is basically another word for 'posted' or 'shipped' and means that your parcel has left our warehouse. We don't use the word 'posted' simply because we don't actually post parcels in a mailbox...instead we give them to the delivery carriers who come to us! You will receive an order update email from us on the date of dispatch, advising you that your order has been shipped by us today. This will include the name of the delivery carrier, the parcel tracking number and a link on how to track your order.
Delivery time (after dispatch) is the time it takes the delivery carrier to deliver your parcel once we have given it to them. This is also known as 'delivery transit time' and are the estimates provided by our delivery carriers. The vast majority of parcels are delivered within their stated time guides. Please note Nursing Angel is unable to accept responsibility or provide compensation for delivery carrier delays or errors.
We use Australia Post and couriers to deliver Australian orders. A street address is required for courier deliveries and we may request this if one has not been provided at checkout. For cities, towns and metro areas please use a street address. For regional and remote areas which are obviously not serviced by couriers, a post office box address is fine to use. Double check that the shipping address you have provided is correct (particularly the postcode, so easy to make a typo when ordering at midnight!) to minimise any potential delivery delays and to avoid parcels being returned to us as undeliverable.
We will email your parcel tracking number on the date of dispatch, together with a link on how to track your order. If your parcel has not arrived as expected, please refer to this email and link for full information. If you have deleted this email, please contact us to have it re-sent to you. The most common reason for parcels not arriving as expected is due to misplaced or lost delivery calling cards (the parcel is usually awaiting collection at the post office or with the courier depot waiting for your phone call to arrange re-delivery). If you are still unable to locate your parcel after following the instructions in the tracking link, please contact us for assistance at least one day after the full delivery time estimate has elapsed.

Parcels are either signed for, left for "safe drop" on the premises at the drivers discretion or a card is left by the driver with next step instructions.

Thanks to these pants my abdominal separation went from 4 fingers to 2 in a matter of a couple of weeks. Highly recommend this product 👍
I m so happy for my purchase its amazing, and really helped my body after c section!
So supportive without being restrictive. Great length for under skirts and dresses.
I had the long version for my first pregnancy and had to get them again! Amazing quality and comfortable. Helped shrink my tummy after my c-section. Would 100% recommend the SRC brand for post c-section recovery. You do have to really pull these ones on though compared to the full length version..... pull up slowly! But once your in...amazing! Wear mine almost everyday!
I had twins at 30 weeks. Actually bought it a few days before my emergency c-section. Highly recommend check the measurements correctly before purchasing. I purchased size xs as that was the size according to my measurements. I was size S before However I tried to put them on the day after c- section and couldn’t fit them I thought I had ordered the wrong size. However a week later after putting the elastic bottom part around the back of a chair to stretch it and washing it in cold water, the garment fitted me nicely. Doesn’t feel restrictive but supportive.
Have to pull the top part hard and away from wound when going to toilet, otherwise drags over the wound and it is painful and uncomfortable.
