During pregnancy our body changes and grows every day and in all different directions. Our tummy changes as it makes room for the new tenant that has just taken over the space.
As a result of growing a baby or babies, many women will experience DRAM (Diastis of Recti Abdominis Muscles) or in basic terms seperation of the abdominal muscles. This can start to appear as early as your second trimester.
You will also experience the 'jelly belly'. This is the result of baby vacating and your abdominal skin no longer being stretched.
The treatment of DRAM involves working with a women's health physiotherapist who will tailor specific exercises to help repair the damaged muscle tissue and wearing supportive post natal compression garments.
Our Post Natal Reshape Boxers have been designed in consultation with medical professionals to provide you with the support your body needs when recovering from child birth. The longer leg style has in-woven targeted compression zones which provide a medium level of support to your abdominal area as well as smoothing out your hip line, making them great to wear under your favourite dress and camouflaging your jelly belly while your body recovers.
Wearing regular briefs postnatally does not provide your body with the same level of compression and support required to assist in the recovery of DRAM.
Made from soft breathable seamfree microfibre material, they are comfortable to wear all year round and you can sleep in them.
If you are having or have had a c-section, we recommend you wear our C-Section Briefs for the first 4-6weeks before switching to the post natal reshape boxer. The firmness of the boxer is no suitable immediately after a c-section.
These recovery shorts are highwaisted and will sit mid-thigh for most women.
- wash in a wash bag to protect the fabric
- cool and comfortable for all year round wear
- available in 2 colours Black or Tan
Should you have a moderate to high level of muscle seperation or would like firmer support, try our Post Natal Reshape Briefs.
