Review: SRC Recovery Leggings & Shorts

As you all know, I had my beautiful baby boy via  C-Section 3 weeks ago.
It’s my second C-Section, so I had a fairly good idea about what was going to happen, how I was going to feel after and what I was going to need for my recovery.

These babies were at the top of my list. I didn’t know about these until weeks after I’d had Leo, so I never actually purchased a pair (I just had a standard pair of compression leggings that I used instead) – As these are a very pricey item of clothing, I didn’t find out about them til I was already 6 weeks post-partum and I didn’t have private health at the time, so I passed on the purchase with my first pregnancy.

But this time around, I was 100% on getting myself a pair or 2 since my Health Cover was going to reimburse me 🙂

I purchased both the Recovery Leggings and the Recovery Shorts (I figured I could wear the shorts under a dress/skirt and no one could tell the difference 😛 )
I ordered both in a size XS – They say to measure yourself (hip area) at 36 Weeks pregnant to ensure the product works to the best of its ability.


Disclaimer
I received full approval and recommendation from my doctor before purchasing and wearing these items.
I didn’t put them on until 3 days post-surgery as per the advisement on my doctor.
This is exclusively advice for me in particular as he felt my fluid had subsided and my scar was healing well.
Do not rush your body and put these on before receiving clearance from your obstetrician as it can cause further damage wearing compression-wear too early after surgery.


Here are the details from the website about the leggings / shorts:
