SRC Recovery Leggings
Speed up Recovery after Pregnancy!
Designed by women for women, in consultation with an obstetrician these ‘fit for purpose’ Recovery Leggings deliver both functionality and comfort. The uniquely designed and patented Anatomical Support Panels in the SRC Recovery Leggings, deliver targeted compression without deactivating your muscles and treat multiple conditions prevalent after delivery;
- DRAM (Diastasis Rectus Abdominus Muscle) Abdominal Muscle Separation
- C-section wounds
- Perineal trauma and episiotomy wounds
- Lower back pain
Now you can get in shape after childbirth with the support of the world’s leading pregnancy and recovery compression range.
The SRC Recovery Leggings provide you with better stability and enable easier movement after delivery, making caring for your baby easier – lifting, bathing and feeding all add up to put extra demands on you especially areas like lower back.
The Recovery Leggings are just like a “second skin” – no adjustable buttons, zips or velcro which means you don’t need to always adjust while wearing your postpartum compression garment. The Recovery Leggings are highly recommended by health care professionals for improving mobility and pelvic muscle function after childbirth. The SRC Recovery Leggings have become a favourite hospital bag inclusion for women around the world.
How do recovery leggings assist with post-pregnancy recovery?
1. Activate Muscles
The patented SRC compression technology enables muscle stimulation and activation by producing gentle compression / light pressure to the pelvis, back and abdominal muscles. This is impossible if you choose a girdle or rigid support garment like shape wear as it will provide a level of compression that is too high. With SRC you can be confident your Recovery Leggings are performing even when you’re not active.
2. Assist in reducing swelling
Fitting like a glove, the gentle compression in the recovery leggings helps your mobility after both a vaginal or C-section delivery.
3. Assist in reducing pain and provides support to wound healing
Recovery Leggings provide mild compression to the wound area. Whether you had a C-section birth or stitches/tears to your perineum, the SRC Leggings will reduce wound swelling and pain and promote a faster and safer recovery.
What makes SRC Recovery leggings so different?
SRC Recovery Leggings have been designed by women and in consultation with obstetrician Dr. Saffer. Anatomically designed support panels fit with the female anatomy and deliver constant gentle compression of 4-15mmHg. The Recovery Leggings deliver fantastic fit and maximum support without making you feel restricted. We recommend you use them for the first 8-10 weeks after birth and then they can be worn for as long as they provide benefit.
SRC Recovery Leggings use a proprietary luxurious fabric and breathable power mesh lining. These SRC fabrics are independently and scientifically tested and the test results show that our fabric and the construction is of the highest quality. The fabric 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, what we call True Cross Compression, which means that SRC compression garments retain their strength characteristics longer than some leading sports performance brands even after 100 Washes.
Optimal results for recovery
Start wearing your SRC Leggings as soon as you can post-delivery. It may take a few days for your SRC Recovery Leggings to feel perfectly comfortable because of fluid retention.
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 leggings during the day only while your perineal stitches are healing. Once the area is fully healed you can wear SRC Recovery Leggings both day and night.
Your SRC Recovery Leggings should feel supportive without you feeling restricted. 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. Please contact us should you require further information.
You can also alternate between your SRC Recovery Leggings and your SRC sports garment as soon as you feel you no longer require as much upper abdominal support throughout the day and the swelling of the upper abdominal area has significantly reduced.
SRC Sports garments have been designed to allow you to comfortably return to exercise, while supporting your pelvis, lower back and legs. It is important to note that your SRC Recovery Leggings will perform best when washed every 3 days. For continued support wear your SRC Sports Leggings or ¾ Lengths Leggings during this time.
