This is what they had to say about our pelvic support shorts:

We knew that Sophie already loved these, so we tried to be democratic and ask other members of the panel to test them. The results were unanimous. Tina summed it up: “The attention to detail was superior. The feeling is of having a ‘sling’ of support from your belly button, underneath your groin up to your lower back; they feel very snug and secure and you feel supported in your pelvic fl oor. If you suffer from urinary leakage, or have had a prolapse these could be life-changing.”
