Being a medical garment, correct measurement is crucial for it to work as it has been designed for. Do not use general/fashion sizing as a guide. If possible come in to get measured by our staff, or ask your spouse, partner or friend to help measure you correctly. Do not measure yourself.
1. Be measured in your underwear only.
2. Stand with your heels together and have the person measuring you keep the measuring tape straight. They should place the tape over your hips, pubic bone and bottom at the fullest part. The tape should touch your body at all points but not be pulled tight.

Sizing for twin pregnancies is identical to sizing for single pregnancies.
How do pregnancy compression shorts work?
SRC Pregnancy Shorts Mini provide stability to the pelvic muscles as they offer gentle support and compression to the entire pelvic area. The targeted compression in the shorts improves pelvic stability and encourages greater core stability.
Why do HCP’s advocate using SRC pregnancy shorts?
SRC Pregnancy Shorts have been designed in consultation with a leading Melbourne obstetrician Dr. Grant Saffer. Targeted support panels fit perfectly with your natural curves and deliver consistent gentle medical grade compression at 4-15mmHg. The garment provides superior support without any feeling of restriction.
The three layers of compression within the anatomical panels including the gusset panel have been shown to significantly help with the pressure associated with Vulval veins.
The unique fabrics that SRC Compression Garments have been made from are incredibly comfortable and fully breathable. All fabrics go through rigorous independent testing so that our customer is provided with the highest quality. Our anatomic panels deliver true cross compression as each layer with the panel is cut on a different plane.

*Please note: SRC Pregnancy leggings have a gentle level of graduated compression in the legs. These are suitable for women with mild varicose veins or swelling. This product will not provide enough compression for moderate or severe varicose veins of the legs. Women often complain that wearing a grade 2 or 3 compression stocking for long periods can be difficult due to them becoming hot and tight. The SRC Leggings were designed with a specific level of compression so that women can wear their compression stockings under the SRC Leggings for a number of hours during the day. Once the compression stockings have been removed the SRC Leggings will continue to provide mild graduated compression so the benefit of having worn the stockings is not lost.
