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.
Stimulate abdominal muscle recovery
The unique fabric technology provides gentle compression to the abdomen and back facilitating muscle recovery against load. While wearing the garment your muscles are continuously active. This promotes rehabilitation and core stability, encouraging the abdominal muscles to return to their original shape and position. The SRC recovery shorts give you support and stability allowing you to move freely. 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.
Improved Mobility and function
Mobility is the key to recovery. SRC recovery shorts allow easier mobilization post-delivery and makes lifting, feeding, bathing and caring for your baby much easier. SRC recovery shorts fit like a second skin, the gentle compression helps you get mobile sooner after both a vaginal or C-section delivery by facilitating faster central fluid loss and swelling.
Reduce pain and provide 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.
Specialised fabric construction technology
SRC women's compression shorts feature a proprietary luxurious fabric and breathable power mesh lining which are designed and tested specifically for SRC garments. These 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 leading sports performance brands.
Anatomic Support panels
Anatomically designed and manufactured to fit the female anatomy and work with natural curves and muscle orientation. The anatomical placement of these support panels ensures consistent gentle medical grade compression while providing structure to the garment for exceptional fit and maximum support without any feeling of restriction.
Do you have Private Health Insurance?
Some private health insurers will provide a rebate on your SRC pregnancy shorts as they are considered medical compression garments. Once you have purchased your product, ask your health care professional to sign the rebate letter and send this along with your invoice to your insurer. We have had many cases of rebates ranging from $0 to $160 rebates. Please check with your health fund for eligibility and specific requirements.
Achieving Optimal results
SRC recovery shorts have been designed for use in the first 8-10 weeks after delivery but can be worn for as long as they provide benefit.
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.
Begin wearing your SRC Recovery Shorts as soon as you feel able post-delivery. It may take a few days for your SRC Recovery Shorts to feel fully comfortable because of fluid retention.
Wear your SRC Recovery Shorts for as many hours as you wish. Your SRC Recovery Shorts 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 of the SRC Recovery Shorts 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. Please contact us should you require further information. SRC Recovery Shorts can be worn both day and night.
Alternate between your SRC Recovery Shorts and your SRC Sports Shorts 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.
Wear both for as long as they provide comfort and support and continue wearing your SRC Sports Shorts when you return to regular exercise/sport. SRC Sports Shorts 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 will perform best when washed every 3 days. For continued support wear your SRC Sports Shorts during this time.
Please note: this product is not to be worn at any stage during your pregnancy.
