    Default C-section recovery and tummy support

    So, as the title suggests, I am looking for anyone's advice for good tummy support post c-section. This will be my 2nd c-section, and I had NO idea the first time around just how painful sneezing, coughing etc could be without some pressure on my wound site. Also found through trial and error that heat packs seemed to help too...! Can anyone recommend good tummy support products???

    SRC recovery shorts!

    I heard about them on here when they had people trying them and reviewing them. The reviews seemed mostly really good.

    The price of new ones $180 (!!) put me off, but I searched around on gumtree and eBay and picked up a secondhand pair for $100. I recently re-sold them for $80 so they only really cost me $20!

    They were really fantastic. Really supported my wound and pelvic area and I really noticed an increase in pain levels when I wasn't wearing them.

    i've bought these for post-pregnancy. Paid new price though ($200 inc post). I don't want much though and if it helps me get back in shape quicker and helps my self esteem etc then its worth it!
    i plan on wearing them daily with long tunic style tops and with my runners so i can get out whenever for a walk

    Might have to invest in a pair... Out of interest, when did you buy them (for sizing?) I think I would be a medium or large post birth... Don't want them to be too big and not work though...

    Have a look on the src website I think they say to measure yourself in your 36th week of pregnancy to get a correct sizing.

    Hmmm, thanks! Not sure that I'll get to 36 weeks though! Maybe just have to take a tape measure and send my hubby out to buy a pair after the birth...!
