For women who are seeking a shape wear style garment for postnatal recovery, we highly recommend the 2XU postnatal compression shorts. Designed by a trusted and highly sort after brand, the 2XU range of pregnancy and postnatal compression garments combine a moderate level of support with a high quality product that is comfortable and flexible for the wearer.
The fabric feels fantastic and the support is strong enough to help you feel better post birth, but not so strong as to cause your abdominal muscles to disengage. Suitable for both vaginal and Caesarean births, these are an excellent recovery option. These are also a great recovery option for women who suffer fluid retention, varicose veins and/or vulvar varicosities. Just bear in mind that because these are longer length shorts, you may not be able to wear them under normal shorts, skirts, or dresses without them being seen.
2XU Postnatal Compression Shorts Overview:
2XU offers you the most advanced compression products on the market. Designed with targeted panels to provide support to key regions, these recovery shorts allow for greater mobility and comfort following delivery, and then when you once again begin your exercise regime. Combining all the benefits of 2XU compression technology, the shorts are engineered with powerful compression panels to support abdominal muscle recovery. Targeted compression also provides support to the upper leg, lower back, and the pelvic floor muscles.
These shorts are part of 2XU’s PWX collection of premium compression fabrics, which after extensive research, have been engineered to offer optimal power, weight, and flexibility.
- Seam-free compression tummy panel provides moderate support for abdominal muscle recovery.
- The single abdominal and gusset panel provides support, whilst reducing chafe and avoiding irritation to C-section scars.
- Double-layered PWX70D gusset for pelvic floor support.
- PWX and Power mesh fabrics target the lower back to support the upper body whilst enhancing posture and breathing.
- Flatlock seams reduce chafe for greater comfort.
- Powerful Invista Lycra for exceptional fit, support and recovery. The Invista Lycra also offers terrific fabric return.
- Superior knit structure for multidirectional stretch and consistent power.

- Antibacterial formula to reduce odour
- UPF 50+ sun protection.
Benefits of 2XU compression:
- Helps reduce fatigue through less muscle oscillation (the movement of the muscle that happens as your foot hits the ground and vibration ripples through your body. Compression wear will aim to limit this vibration and prevent microtrauma to the muscle).
- Helps reduce muscle soreness
- Helps reduce long-term overuse injuries
- Provides greater power output
- Heightened proprioception (awareness of limb placement for agility)
- DRAM (Diastasis Recti)
- Mild Pelvic Girdle or Hip Pain
- Mild Pelvic Floor support
- Fluid retention
- Post pregnancy abdominal and back support
The 2XU Postnatal Compression shorts are suitable for those having undergone either natural or c-section deliveries and panels are strategically placed to avoid any irritation to caesarean scars. Get back to your pre-pregnancy body with the help of 2XU Postnatal Compression.

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.
If Not Home For Delivery:
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.
Delivery Instructions & Authority To Leave:
If you have any delivery instructions or wish to give Authority To Leave your parcel if not home, please write clear details in the order notes area at checkout. Your instructions will then be passed onto the delivery carrier. Default instructions for Australia Post and Fastway Couriers are Authority to Leave.
Free Shipping Promotions:
Occasionally we have free shipping promotions or offers. We do not offer Free Shipping to WA, SA, NT or TAS at this time.
