SRC C-Section Recovery Shorts

*With Phone Pockets*

The SRC C-Section Recovery Shorts have been meticulously designed to provide complete postpartum support and alleviate discomfort following a c-section or vaginal delivery. These shorts not only expedite your post-childbirth healing process but also prioritise a healthier maternal journey for both you and your family, making them especially vital for individuals recuperating from significant abdominal surgeries like a C-section.

SRC C-Section Recovery Shorts feature an extra soft band and strategically placed seams for c-section births to maximize comfort without compromising functionality.

Added pockets provide convenience, making these shorts the perfect blend of our classic Recovery Shorts tailored specifically for the unique needs of c-section patients.

    Designed with anti-chafing fabric and in consultation with an obstetrician for the ultimate in comfort and functionality, SRC C-Section Recovery Shorts provide the support you need to heal and move more.


    SRC Recovery garments provide you with increased stability and allow you to move more freely post-delivery, making lifting, feeding, bathing and caring for your baby much easier.

    With no adjustable buttons, velcro or zips, the Recovery garments are like a second skin. There’s no need to constantly adjust while you’re wearing them. Recommended by health care professionals for improving mobility and pelvic muscle function postpartum, these garments have become a must-have inclusion in hospital bags of women the world over.

    Patented Anatomical Support Panels (ASP) in the SRC Recovery garments deliver targeted compression, ideal for treating multiple conditions like c-section wounds, perineal trauma and episiotomy wounds, abdominal muscle separation and lower back pain.

    They provide support to the pelvic area through gentle yet constant compression, activating muscles and encouraging core stability, reducing swelling and muscle fatigue.

    The ASP deliver True Cross Compression (TCC) as each layer within the panel is cut on a different plane so that during activity no compression is lost at any time.

    The research and development of our fabric was extensive as we wanted to ensure that it provided support and comfort with no feeling of restriction. Our uniquely milled fabric goes through rigorous independent testing to ensure that it is of the highest quality and can stretch and return to its original shape consistently after wash and wear to provide you with optimal performance and a longer lasting garment.

    To make sure we deliver this we decided to test our fabric against one of the leading compression brands in the marketplace to assess whether the compression properties were sustained after multiple washes and how this compared to the other brand.

    We subjected the fabric to 100 wash cycles followed by an extension test. Our fabric not only retained its original size and shape (against the competitor which shrunk significantly) but also retained the same high level of compression at the conclusion of testing.

    The Recovery garment’s flatlock seams increase comfort during exercise, prevent chafing and wound aggravation.


    This is a question we get asked a lot by women wondering which length will be the best fit for their needs. Each length has different features and benefits and, ultimately, it comes down to personal preference for each customer in what they will get the most wear from:

    • Full length leggings provide the best venous return and are a fashion staple that can be worn like any other pair of black leggings. However, you may need help to put the leggings on the first time and may not be preferable for women who live in warmer climates.
    • Regular (knee-length) Shorts can be worn like bike shorts as both an undergarment and outerwear. They provide a slightly better venous return than our Mini length.
    • Lots of women prefer the Recovery Shorts Mini because they fit perfectly under shorter dresses and are great for hotter climates. They are also the easiest to put on.


    The New SRC C-Section Recovery Shorts have all of the same benefits as the SRC Recovery Shorts with a few new features and benefits:

    • Even more comfortable for C-section births they have flat lock seems placed in a way to minimise any chance of coming in contact with the c-section scar.
    • They have an extra soft band that minimises the effort required to put on the shorts soon after what is a major abdominal surgery. 
    • 2 convenient side pockets of ample size to fit most mobile phone models.


    • All items are required to be returned in their original unworn condition, with their garment tags and labels in place.
    • Refunds will be processed based on the conditions of the product once it has been returned.
