About Emamaco Recovery Leggings

Designed from the ground up to support and shape Post Natal.
Introducing the Emamaco Pregnancy Recovery Leggings and Shorts.

Made to complement the Emama Maternity Leggings. Our Maternity Leggings are made to be worn throughout pregnancy and also immediately after. When you need that extra support and compression you can switch to these Pregnancy Recovery Emama Leggings (usually straight away when you get home from hospital).

Please consult your medical professional regarding your compression requirements for post pregnancy recovery. They will be able to advise you on the timing and suitability of wearing recovery clothing including the emamaco pregnancy recovery tights.

Extra high and extra supportive the pregnancy recovery leggings pull you in provide back support as well as abdominal support.

4 Panel Support System

With in-built Mesh we have 4 support panels around the tummy to provide back and ab support and the help with ab separation through compression.

The extra layer of mesh provides breathable support and compression through the abdominal region.

Stitching for Post Natal Recovery

We only use flat lock stitching because it is strong and does not cause skin irritation. This is especially important for Post natal recovery if you have c-section scars.

The waist seam is lower to provide all of the support required for postpartum 

Materials and Fabrics

Made from the emamaco Supaflex fabrics used across our maternity range, the leggings are smooth, super soft, breathable and fit like a second skin.

Material is a custom Nylon and Elastane blend

please note some sizes have our updated emamaco logo at the back - note shown in picture new photos coming soon
The new logo is just as small and unobtrusive as the old.

Size Guide

The size chart for Recovery is different to Maternity & all other emamaco leggings.

Sizing is based on your Hip Measurement if you are currently 35v weeks plus.
To measure your hips you just measure around the widest part of your butt (not your bump!) like in this photo:

Please note our size chart is a guide and everyone and everybody shape is different  if you need help with sizing always reach out to our customer service team for help.

If you are postpartum:

We recommend to choose based on your waist and hip measurement.

If you find on the size chart that your waist measurement is under a larger size category than your hip measurement then we recommend to go with the waist measurement. For example if your waist is 80cm and your hip is 102cm then we recommend to go with size medium.

If your hip measurement is on the larger size category compared to your waist measurement on the size chart then we recommend to go by the hip measurement. For example if your hip is 100cm and your waist is 73cm then we would recommend to go with size XS 

Please note our sizing chart is a guide and everyone is different. If you have any questions about sizing please get in touch through the contact us page here.

Please pick your size based on your hip measurement if 35 weeks plus pregnant and  based on your waist and hip measurement if postpartum in the chart below, please note everyone will always fit into 2 sizes well. If you want a less tight fit you can usually size up.
Note - do not size down as these are a compression garment and quite tight!

Sizing applies for all Pregnancy Recovery Leggings and Shorts.

So good!

Amazing recovery shorts. Will be buying some more.

Very comfortable but sizing very different to other style

The shorts are really comfortable but are genourous on the sizing. I wore a M in the pregnancy shorts and even the S in the recovery shorts are not tight/compressive like I would expect them to be. I wear a small in the regular tight when not pregnant and they are a good fit.

Highly Recommend!

Perfect shorts for recovery from my C-Section. I purchased just one to see how they would fit and I had to purchase more once I received them and tried them. Dog hair doesn't get on them too which is amazing as I have a pug. Highly recommend and great fit!


These are the most comfortable shorts. I bought 2 different sizes so I could wear the larger size directly after giving birth and the smaller size after everything started going back into place. The sizing is spot on. I was a bit nervous to start wearing them as I had a c-section, but the pressure of the pants actually helped ease the pain a bit. I wish I knew about these in my first pregnancy. They're so comfortable, basically all I wear now!

Great shorts & leggings but terrible delivery

I ordered a pair of pregnancy recovery leggings and shorts in the Black Friday Sales and have only just received them this week. When I placed the order both items were in stock and I was never informed that they were out of stock and hence the delivery was delayed. It was only when I contacted customer service that I was informed my order was delayed as one item was out of stock. When it was shipped out as well the courier company used was terrible. They said they attempted delivery but nobody ever came. Finally had to go and pick it up from the news agency myself. For what I paid for shipping this seems ridiculous.

The leggings and shorts however are of great quality. I love the fabric and the high waist band. There are no seams or any side stitching either so gives a very lux feel. Great value if you purchase in the sales. Would have liked for these to arrive when I needed them postpartum but other than that I am very happy with the leggings themselves. Will definitely be ordering more as I can see myself wearing these daily.

Would 100% recommend however factor in delayed shipping when ordering. Expect at least 2-3 months before order arrives.

Hi M.S. Thanks for taking the time to leave a review so happy you love the fabric!
We have been working on our shipping and getting it to go as quick as possible

You read that right - we custom make all our own fabrics. So all our leggings, shorts, 3/4s - well just all of them are so ridiculously smooth that pet hair doesn't stick to them. It's so amazing for our pet peeps that even Women's Health Australia wrote an article about it!

Worried about your environmental footprint? So are we.

We will always work on this.
But So Far:

  • We've eliminated printed receipts that get sent with every order
  • We run a paperless office
  • We use recyclable plastic bags
  • We use as many postage bags made out of recycled plastic as possible
  • Maternity clothes aren't forever. So we collect old maternity clothes and donate them to a women's health shelter
