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.

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 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.
