If you are pregnant and you're feeling pain in the lower back, pelvic or thigh area or having issues with mobility or stability then check out these shorts! (ok, really ,who didn't feel any of those pains in your 3rd trimester!!)
The SRC Maternity Compression Shorts (they have leggings if you're having lower leg pain too) can provide a lot of relief just by wearing their shorts. You may find less pain in your hips and just feel all around more suppported.
According to their website, this is how the shorts work - "The gentle compression promotes supporting pressure to the pelvis and stimulates the
underlying muscles to remain active to assist in making the pelvic joints more
stable. The reinforced gusset design (patent pending) allows maximum support to the
perineum reducing symptoms of vulval varicosities and incontinence. The
graduated compression in the leggings places pressure on the veins to reduce
blood pooling and therefore the aching symptoms of varicose veins and swollen
The shorts can also help with varicose veins and can be useful for women who want to keep working and exercising during pregnancy. Some will wear the shorts or leggings to bed to relieve some hip pain when they roll over.
Some private health insurers will provide a rebate on your SRC pregnancy shorts
as they are considered medical compression garments.
