Postpartum compression shorts for support and faster recovery

Carrying your baby to term feels like carrying the world on your back… literally!!! And while nothing comes close to the joy of holding your small one in your arms, your body may feel and look different to you post-delivery. 

After going through one of the most physically challenging experiences in the world, your body now bears the marks of motherhood. It may take weeks or months for your belly to shrink in size. You could experience discomfort for several days or weeks after giving birth. 

Start feeling like your old self again with our postnatal compression shorts.  Suitable for wear after vaginal and Caesarean deliveries, these shorts support your back, hips, abdominal muscles and pelvic floor to aid in recovery. 

Made with patented 3D Wave Knit, our postpartum shorts firm and tone the body to help you get back to your pre-baby figure.  Compression helps with healing and gives you more awareness of your core muscles. 

Solidea’s maternity recovery shorts are made from a lightweight and breathable fabric with silver ions technology to keep you cool and prevent odour all year around.

Solidea is here to help restore your body’s strength and vitality and speed up your recovery.
