• SRC Recovery Shorts (Mini) provide you with the support to move more freely post-delivery and make lifting, feeding, bathing and caring for your baby much easier.


    The mini length provides you with increased versatility, fitting under shorter length dresses, skirts and shorts, while the knee length Recovery Shorts provide a better level of venous return.


    SRC Recovery Shorts (Mini) provide you with the support to move more freely post-delivery and make lifting, feeding, bathing and caring for your baby much easier.


    SRC Recovery Shorts (Mini) assist in speeding up recovery after pregnancy by addressing the 3 most common and important conditions post birth:
    1. Abdominal Muscle Separation
    2. C-Section and Perineal Trauma / Stitches
    3. Low Back Pain


    SRC Recovery Shorts (Mini)'s anatomically designed support panels fit with the natural curves of the female anatomy, whilst delivering consistent gentle medical grade compression at 4-15mmHg. The garment delivers exceptional fit and maximum support without any feeling of restriction. Designed for use in the first 8-10 weeks after delivery they can be worn for as long as they provide benefit, and many women continue to wear their recovery shorts for exercise or for aesthetic reasons under fitted clothing.


    SRC Women's compression shorts feature a proprietary luxurious fabric and breathable power mesh lining. These fabrics are independently and scientifically tested. Test results show that the fabric and its construction is not only of the highest quality, but it consistently delivers continuous gentle graduated compression over time. To achieve this, high performance fabric panels are cut in multiple planes to provide multi-directional stretch performance which means that SRC compression garments retain their stretch and strength characteristics longer than some leading sports performance brands.

    For Optimal Results:


    Begin wearing your SRC Recovery Shorts (Mini) as soon as you feel able post-delivery. It may take a few days for your SRC Recovery Shorts (Mini) to feel fully comfortable because of fluid retention.


    Perineal Stitches:

    • Please be advised that if you have had stitches to the perineal area following a vaginal delivery you should change your maternity pad every 2 hours. DO NOT wear a pad that has a plastic backing. This may cause the area to sweat which will increase the risk of infection. Wash the area with salt water and dry well following each pad change. Wear your recovery shorts during the day only, while your perineal stitches are healing. Once the area is fully healed you can wear them both day and night.


    SRC Recovery Shorts (Mini) can be worn both day and night. Wear your SRC Recovery Shorts (Mini) for as many hours as you wish. Your SRC Recovery Shorts (Mini) should feel supportive without any feeling of restriction. During pregnancy, some women find that their ribs expand to accommodate the growing foetus. If so, the elastic at the top may feel a little tight even though the garment is otherwise comfortable. This is easily resolved by putting the elastic on continuous gentle stretch for a number of hours.


    Changing from SRC Recovery garment to SRC Activate garment:

    • Alternate between your SRC Recovery Shorts (Mini) and your SRC Activate garment as soon as you feel you no longer require as much upper abdominal support throughout the entire day and the swelling of the upper abdominal area has significantly reduced.
    • SRC Activate garments have been designed to allow you to comfortably return to exercise, all the while knowing that your pelvis, lower back and legs are supported. It is important to note that your SRC Recovery Shorts (Mini) will perform best when washed every 3 days. For continued support wear your SRC Activate Capri/Legging during this time.


    How do compression garments work to promote post-pregnancy recovery?


    1. Activate Muscles

    • The unique SRC garment technology promotes muscle stimulation and activation by providing gentle compression / light pressure to the pelvis, back and abdominal muscles. This is not possible if you choose a corset, girdle, or rigid support garment. From day one, you can be confident in the knowledge that your SRC Recovery Shorts (Mini) are doing their job even when you’re not active


    2. Reduce Swelling

    • Fitting like a second skin, the gentle compression helps you get mobile sooner after both a vaginal or C-section delivery


    3. Reduces Pain and Provide Wound Support

    • SRC compression garments provide gentle compression to a wound area. Whether you have had a C-section delivery or stitches/tears to the perineum, the SRC Recovery Shorts (Mini) reduce wound swelling and pain and promote a faster and safer recovery

      For best results, get someone other than yourself to take mulitple measurements, as sizing is critical to the performance of the garment.


      Do not take your own measurement.


      • Measure your hips and bottom at the fullest part, in your underwear only
      • Stand with your heels together and keep measuring tape straight and parallel to the floor
      • The measuring tape should touch your body at all points, but not be pulled tight


      We advise you measure and order your recovery compression garment during or after the 36th week of your pregnancy, as your hip measurement may change during early to mid pregnancy. If you have already had your baby, you can measure at any time.
