The SRC Recovery Shorts Mini provide you with the support to move more freely post-delivery and make lifting, feeding, bathing and caring for your baby much easier.
The difference between the Mini Length Recovery Shorts and the “original” Knee Length Recovery Shorts is the length.
The Mini Length provides you with increased versatility, fitting under shorter length dresses, skirts and shorts, while the Knee Length Recovery Shorts provide a better level of venous return.
Do you want to speed up your post pregnancy recovery*:
- Regain your pre-baby body shape?
- Recovery from C-section or perineal trauma ?
- Abdominal Muscle Separation (Diastasis Rectus Abdominus Muscle DRAM)?
- Increase stability and mobility?
SRC Recovery Shorts Mini Product Information
WHY SRC RECOVERY LEGGINGS?
SRC Recovery Leggings assist in speeding up recovery after pregnancy by addressing the 3 most common and important conditions post birth:
1. Abdominal Muscle Separation (DRAM)
2. C-Section and Perineal Trauma / Stitches and
3. Low Back Pain
HOW DO COMPRESSION GARMENTS WORK TO PROMOTE POST-PREGNANCY RECOVERY?
1. Activate Muscles
SRC Recovery Leggings have been specifically designed to activate muscles they are in contact with. Gentle continuous compression is key so as not to tire your muscle over time.
2. Reduce Swelling
Graduated gentle leg compression promotes good venous return. Continuous gentle compression to the abdomen, perineum and back activate muscle and stimulate venous return which helps reduce fluid in those areas.
3. Reduces Pain and Provide Wound Support
Constant gentle compression to any wound either C-Section or perineal decreased swelling which in turn decreases pain.
WHY ARE SRC Recovery Shorts Mini RECOMMENDED BY HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS?
SRC Recovery Leggings have all the same attributes of the SRC Recovery Shorts but with an extended leg length to the ankle. SRC Recovery Shorts were designed in consultation with a leading obstetrician/gynaecologist Dr. Grant Saffer. The compression garment can be worn to comfort from day 1 after both a vaginal or C-section delivery. We recommend wearing these for 8-10 week or as long as you feel the need.
All SRC compression products feature superior fabrics which are specially milled and rigorously tested before any product is manufactured. Our fabrics therefore are of superior quality and deliver sustained compression over time.
ACHIEVING OPTIMAL RESULTS
Start wearing your SRC Recovery Leggings as soon as you feel able post delivery. Shoud they feel uncomfortable due to fluid retention please remove them and try again the following day.
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 leggings during the day only while your perineal stitches are healing. Once the area is fully healed you can wear them both day and night.
Your Leggings can be worn 24 hours. The longer you wear them over a 24 hour period the more activation your muscles will receive.
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 Mini 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.
