What are Postpartum Tights?
Postpartum tights are a type of compression legging designed to be worn after giving birth. These tights are reinforced with compression fabric in the waist, hips, stomach and lower back. That core support takes the strain off your muscles and can help you move more freely after giving birth.
You might also see them called postpartum or postnatal recovery tights. Whatever they’re called, these tights all do the same thing – they help women recover after childbirth.
When Can I Start Wearing Postpartum Tights?
You can start wearing postpartum tights as soon as you feel ready. We recommend starting with 1-3 hours per day after birth, and then steadily increasing the time over the coming weeks.
It’s okay to wear postpartum tights a few days after a c-section. Just be mindful of your surgical wounds. These tights have a compression effect which may put pressure on sore spots. Avoid wearing postpartum tights if they’re causing discomfort or if your doctor recommends waiting longer.
Wearing postpartum tights is great for your recovery and confidence in the first 2-3 months after birth, but they can be worn for more or less time if you like! Mad House Mums designed our tights to be comfortable and stylish enough for everyday wear, so they’ll be the perfect wardrobe staple for years!
How Do Postpartum Tights Help?
Wondering whether these tights really make a difference? Well, they do!
Labour and birth can be tough on your body. Just like other injuries, there are a few things you can do to speed up the recovery process. If you have ever had to bandage a sprained ankle then you already know how postpartum tights help. By offering compression and support, specially designed tights take the strain off your body.
Postpartum tights provide a few major benefits to your recovery after giving birth:
- Control swelling. Swelling happens when fluid builds up around damaged parts of your body. Controlling swelling is an important part of the recovery process. When used with treatments like ice packs, postpartum tights keep swelling to a minimum. This helps manage pain and get you up and about sooner.
- Reduce muscle soreness. It’s totally normal to experience severe muscle soreness after having a baby. There’s no real way around it, but the right clothing can reduce pain and speed up the recovery process. Supporting your overworked muscles with postpartum tights gives your body the rest it needs to repair itself.
- Provide support for your stomach. Right after you have your baby, many mums find they have a bit of extra skin and muscle to deal with around the stomach. Postpartum tights provide core support that helps control your tummy. That makes moving around more comfortable and can help you get back to your confident self!
- Super comfy. There isn’t much time for fashion when you have a new bub. Anything you can throw on that’s comfortable, stylish and makes you feel confident is an instant win. A good pair of postpartum tights provide all the comfort of your regular leggings, but they’ve got a bit of extra support that’s perfect when you’re looking after your baby (and your own body!).
