" I really like them. I had a caesarean two months ago and I’ve been really careful after my last birth having suffered from abdominal separation, and these high shorts provide compression and support to my whole abdomen, hips and pelvis. I don’t feel any pain during my daily rush with 2 under 2.Also liking the slimming look they give under my dresses. My physio recommended these and so do I. Thanks so much for the wonderful service ."

Who uses Coretech?
Our biggest customers are new Mothers (post-partum) who want to recover from abdominal separation and back pain quickly. They tend to use the product well past the birth giving them support and recovery on an ongoing basis.
For precise sizing, please refer to our Size Guide below. If you are in-between sizes or you wish to wear your compression garment primarily for recovery purposes, we would advise the size down where possible. As our compression is medical grade your regular sizing in clothing does not match with the Coretech compression sizing. Our Coretech garments are made especially for recovery and they need to be firm, compressive and secure. Your compression garment should be a neat, tight fit, but it should not inhibit circulation. If you’ve chosen the wrong size, please contact us to discuss an exchange.

Due to the high level of compression when putting on your Supacore garments, we recommend gathering the leg before placing the foot through, pulling the garment up the leg section by section to avoid placing unnecessary strain on the in leg seams by pulling from the waist.
Be mindful when wearing jewellery or watches that may snag or pull the fabric.

Shorts are great!
I had to order some shorts for post baby. I got the M. From the sizing guide they should fit ... however looking at them I couldn’t imagine these fitting me . So was unsure about which size to purchase Should I go bigger or will I be surprised how they fit ? I contacted Justine at Supacore and she helped me choose the right size. The shorts arrived this morning. Great service! Thank you. They are perfect - Comfy and very supportive
thanks again for great service! So helpful
