SRC Pregnancy Shorts support the muscles of the pelvis by providing gentle compression. The compression in the shorts activates your muscles which promotes better core and pelvic stability. Additionally, graduated compression may prevent the development or worsening of varicose veins by preventing the blood pooling and therefore the symptoms of varicose veins and swollen legs.
Do you have pregnancy related pain and discomfort such as:
- Lower Back Pain? Sciatica?
- Pelvic Instability and Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP)?
- Varicose Veins* of the upper thigh and Vulval Varicosities?
- Do you have issues with mobility and stability and want to continue working and exercising?
SRC Pregnancy Shorts Product Information
WHY ARE SRC PREGNANCY SHORTS RECOMMENDED BY HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS?
SRC Pregnancy Shorts have been designed in consultation with obstetrician Dr. Grant Saffer. Anatomically designed support panels fit with the natural curves of the female anatomy whilst delivering consistent gentle medical grade compression. The garment delivers exceptional fit and maximum support without any feeling of restriction.
The reinforced gusset design allows maximum support to the perineum reducing symptoms of vulval varicosities.
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 our 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.

BETTER SLEEP IN OUR SHORTS
Truly more comfortable than pajamas, SRC Shorts are especially useful to wear to bed. They provide the necessary support to minimize the effects of pelvic pain during sleep.
*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.
Find Your Size
For best results get someone other than yourself to take a number of measurements as sizing is critical to the performance of the garment.
Do not take your own measurement
Please use the chart below to determine your perfect fit for all SRC Women’s garments.
Measure in your underwear only. Stand with your heels together and keep the measuring tape straight. 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.
We advise you measure and order your SRC Recovery Shorts during the 36th week of pregnancy as your hip measurement may change during early to mid-pregnancy. If you already have had your baby you can measure at any time.
Should you find that you are in between sizes or just into the next size we recommend that you choose the smaller size because of fluid loss post-delivery.

The SRC Pregnancy and Recovery range of products have been designed by women for women. Whilst recovering in hospital after the birth of her first child, our founder Sinead O’Donovan decided that new mums deserved more help getting back to their busy lives. Drawing on her extensive medical and bio-mechanical background, Sinead envisaged a garment that would be comfortable for new mums to wear all day whilst giving her all the support she and her body need. With the assistance of Sinead’s’ fashion designer sister (Carmella) they produced the first recovery shorts. As with all great ideas, they went through a long period of development to get the product to fulfil her original vision. The panel design wasn’t quite right, so it was redesigned. The available fabrics weren’t quite right, so they made their own. After two years of development and patient trials, the garment finally met all of their expectations and in 2008 the SRC Recovery Shorts were born. This unique, patented product has now helped thousands of Mums worldwide recover easier & enjoy their baby.
Subsequent to the Recovery short Sinead decided that a comfortable and functional pregnancy garment was also required to treat pain and disability during pregnancy. A similar research and development process to the Recovery short took place and in 2009 the SRC Pregnancy range was available.
Whilst the company and the product range continues to grow, our focus stays clearly on delivering quality garments that meet the real needs of Mum and all her family. We remain committed to original Australian designs that won’t compromise on quality, performance or your expectations. We welcome customer feedback, and will ALWAYS stand behind our product.
