Hear how mums love the SRC shorts
The gentle compression offered with this range of shorts and leggings can reduce pregnancy pains in the back and pelvis, and assist with keeping abdominal muscles activating as they should to support your back posture. This is particularly essential as the pregnancy posture takes hold. Support for the pelvic floor region, and help with the pain of varicose veins, other wonderful effects of pregnancy that no one told you about(!) are also achieved with wearing these garments.
The Fix Program is one of the few Sydney CBD based stockists of these shorts. We even offer a free of charge fitting appointment with one of our physiotherapists to make sure of your correct size. It is reported that women who found the shorts unhelpful were actually wearing shorts either too loose or too tight, losing the positive effects of wearing them altogether.
So, getting those measurements right is crucial!
Here are a few of the positive things women have stated with wearing these in both pregnancy and after.
"Going into my first pregnancy I had suffered sacroiliac joint, hip and lower disc pain for about five years. My condition was so severe I would have regular cortisone injections into my SIJ joints a few times a year, to relieve the inflammation and pain, not to mention the physio visits! I already had a cupboard full of back support braces and pelvic belts etc, but had heard about SRC Pregnancy shorts and thought why not give them a go? When they arrived I was a bit skeptical as they felt like they probably wouldn't have enough support for me, but after persisting and wearing them for around 20 hours a day, and during the night, the results were instant. I absolutely loved them!"
"After delivering my baby, a healthy 10.5 pound bundle of joy, I began wearing the recovery shorts from day 2 and with the combination of being healthy before and during pregnancy, then breastfeeding and wearing the shorts, my body bounced back to shape in no time."
"I love these garments. There was a 2 inch split between my abdominal muscles after the birth of my second child and even though I didn't get these garments until about one month post birth, they had an amazing impact. Not only did I feel much stronger through the core, they also helped reduce back ache by offering support when I bent down to pick up my (heavy!) son."
"I commenced wearing the shorts the day after my second baby was born. I found the shorts to be extremely comfortable and immediately provided major support, compression and relief to my perineum and abdominal muscles."
