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.

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.
After my c section I struggled to sleep and do anything really.
They hold everything in and make me feel confident to move around and sleep also. I’m 2 weeks postpartum and my stomach has already decreased in size a lot !
I wouldn’t recommend these enough!
So comfortable as well.
Pre pregnancy I was size S. I purchased size medium in these and they’ve been perfect. I could probably now buy a size small but I’m happy with the fit.
Good product for postpartum recovery. I had to exchange pants for smaller size for a snug fit. Just found the returns/exchange postage process slow.
