Five Mums on the Postpartum Leggings They Say are “Game-Changers”

After giving birth, like many women you may want to get back to your pre-pregnancy body as quickly as possible. And probably slip back into some of your pre-pregnancy outfits. However, it's important to take it slow and prioritise postpartum recovery.

Nadia Tucker, co-founder of Active Truth explains that the idea for the postnatal recovery range arose after she continued to suffer hip pain years after the birth of her second son.

“I spent a small fortune on physiotherapy and medical grade waistbands/shorts that were impractical and ugly. Despite all of my attempts at rehabilitation I still experienced debilitating hip pain years after the birth of my second son.

We saw an opportunity to develop a product that provided immediate support post-birth to assist new mums when they need it the most and to try to avoid the years of physical suffering.

Designed in conjunction with a women's health physiotherapist, these tights will assist in reducing swelling and muscle soreness after delivery, as well as provide core support for postnatal exercise. The technical construction and fabric are specifically designed to support your lower back, hips and abdominals.”

Active Truth’s postnatal leggings are designed to support new mothers as they heal and regain their strength. Hear from some of our recent new Active Truth mamas who swear by these recovery leggings.

Postnatal Recovery Full Length Tight - Black

Review from Sara

"I lived in my Active Truth postnatal tights during my recovery. They provided the perfect amount of compression without feeling too tight or uncomfortable. Plus, the high waistband helped support my core as I worked on rebuilding my strength."

Postnatal Recovery Pocket ⅞ length tight - Black


Review from Lauren

“I was hesitant to try postnatal recovery tights at first, but I'm so glad I gave Active Truth a chance. The material is super supportive and comfortable, and the tights helped me feel more confident at home when I was recovering from my c-section and when I first returned to postnatal yoga.”

Postnatal Recovery Bike Short - Black

Review from Bailey V

"I've tried other (very expensive and cheap) postnatal recovery leggings after my previous pregnancies, but Active Truth's are by far my favourite. They fit perfectly, don’t look like I’m wearing hospital-issued nanna pants and I love that they come in different lengths so I can choose the one that works best for me. The bike shorts are my Go-To most days as I can wear them underneath dresses (no chafing!), jeans and by themselves for exercise and I feel put back together. Especially important when chasing young children around.”

Postnatal Recovery Support Brief - Black

Review from Mel

“These were an absolute game-changer for me. The only underwear I wear and I'm 6 months postpartum. Has helped support my vagina which prolapsed and I feel supported through more core as I start my stomach separate rehabilitation.”

Postnatal Recovery Pocket Bike Short - Black

Review from Sally P

"These tights are life-changing! I felt so much more supported whilst caring for my baby in the first few months. No one prepares you for how physically demanding caring for a newborn baby is - the changing of nappy/clothes, bathing, patting to sleep! The compression helped reduce the swelling and inflammation I had in my legs too. Plus, they have pockets! Perfect for all of the baby’s things!"

If you're a new mother looking for comfortable and supportive activewear during your postnatal recovery, consider trying Active Truth's postnatal recovery tights. As these new mums can attest, they're a game-changer!
