SRC Pregnancy Compression Shorts and Leggings are an effective, non-pharmacological option for the prevention and management of pain during pregnancy. Designed by women for women in consultation with a Melbourne Obstetrician Grant Saffer, and endorsed by the Australian Physiotherapy Association and the Australian College of Midwives.
The pregnancy leggings deliver targeted compression ideal for treating multiple conditions such as low back and pelvic girdle pain, vulval, and mild/moderate leg varicose veins.
Studies have that 82% of women who wore SRC Pregnancy Shorts or Leggings experienced a reduction in their discomfort.
They come in 2 options:
1. Under the Bump - if your skin is sensitive and gets itchy or if you often get hot. The adjustable waistband grows with the bump.
2. Over the Bump - if you want extra support and to cover the bump without compressing it. The super-soft stretchy material of the upper abdominal and back panel grows with your bump.
Sizing and Measurements:
Correct measurement for these garments is crucial. As they are medical garments they may not always correlate to general/fashion clothing sizes. General fashion sizes also vary drastically by country and by brand (we find that an Australian XS can equate to a S or even M in American sizes) so we strongly recommend you have someone else take your measurements and use this guide to size yourself up.
Measure at any time during your pregnancy for SRC Pregnancy Shorts or Leggings. If you need any assistance please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will assist you with determining your sizing.
