With a variety of performance and workout recovery benefits, our compression gear will help you get the most out of every run, gym session, yoga class, and more. Our range of compression intensity, included features, and styles will help you find the perfect gear for your fitness needs.
What Are the Benefits of Compression Garments?
Wearing compression gear will help you get an edge on the competition and work your way towards new personal records faster than ever. Compression technology offers a wide range of benefits that will help you see better performance results as well as quicker and smoother recovery times.
Supports Blood Flow and Circulation
The pressure that compression material applies on your muscles will support blood flow and circulation throughout the covered area and back up to the heart. This can help support the amount of oxygen supplied to the working muscles and aid with stamina and post-workout recovery.
Soothes Discomfort and Swelling
When you exercise, fluids and lactic acid can pool in your legs and working muscles, contributing to feelings of soreness and muscle discomfort after you complete your workout. Compression technology can help support fluid circulation so your muscles can recover with as little discomfort as possible.
Reduced Muscle Vibration
Compression wear is meant to have a tight and form fitting feel. This helps support your muscles and hold them in place, reducing excess movement and vibrations. This can help your body naturally fight off injury and allow you to focus on your workout without concern.
RICE Healing Method
Compression has also been a longstanding inclusion in the classic RICE recovery method, which stands for Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation. This process is recommended for sore muscles and as a first step for minor injuries and shows just another way that compression gear can be helpful.
Make sure you select your compression garment based on the area of the body you want to target. For example, if you often complete intense upper body workouts and suffer from sore arm muscles, try one of our women’s compression long-sleeve tops or a compression arm sleeve. If you want to relieve sore leg muscles while running, a pair of our women’s compression shorts or leggings will be a great option.
Tight, Secure Fit
The form-fitting feel of compression wear makes all of these garments work as excellent base layers underneath other activewear, including everything from short-sleeve t-shirts to hoodies to joggers. This makes them versatile for all weather conditions and a great option for providing an extra layer of warmth in cold weather.
The tight fit also prevents you from having to worry about your gear sliding up or falling down during your workout, minimizing distractions and helping you train in confidence. Many of our compression shorts and tights also come with slim-fitting pockets for easy accessibility.
Compression Gear for Pregnancy
The benefits of compression technology extend far past the needs of athletes. We offer a selection of compression tights designed to aid in prenatal and postnatal life so you can experience relief and support while your body changes. Combine with a pair of our compression socks for full lower body coverage.
What Are the Benefits of Compression Tights for Pregnancy?
Compression tights can help in a variety of ways as you both prepare for delivery and recover after birth. Our selection of maternity compression tights will provide the benefits listed above as well as additional ones specific to pregnancy.
A major benefit of maternity compression tights is that they can help reduce swelling in the feet, legs, and ankles, a common symptom during pregnancy. They can also help naturally combat varicose veins that may appear in the legs from fluid buildup and can help pump blood up to the heart, which works harder than normal when you are pregnant.
During Pregnancy - Prenatal Active Tights
These full-length compression tights are designed to be worn from 26 weeks and onward. They will provide all of the benefits listed above, including a seamless non-compression stomach panel stretching with your body for additional support. The material is moisture-wicking, flexible, and designed with your comfort in mind.
After Pregnancy - Postnatal Active Tights
These high-waisted compression tights will help keep you supported after you deliver. They include a seamless non-compression stomach panel that can aid abdominal recovery and Power Mesh material that supports the lower back. The fabric is quick-drying, stretchy, and lightweight so you can recover as comfortably as possible.
Compression Gear for Recovery
While all of our compression garments can help support your recovery process, soothing discomfort and minimizing time off, this selection of gear is specifically designed to support your body’s recovery. These garments can be worn during or for up to four hours after your workout for maximum effect.
Power Recovery Compression Tights
These tights are meant to provide as much support as possible from your most intense workouts. They contain graduated stamping technology that helps provide targeted muscle support and support blood flow as much as possible. An over the foot stirrup helps ensure that the compression effect is felt from the body’s furthest extremities and back up into the heart.
Refresh Recovery Compression Tights
These compression pants will help stabilize your muscles and support blood flow throughout your recovery process. The material is high quality and moisture-wicking, so you can stay cool and comfortable. These tights are great for recovering from any tough training session, competition, or race.
Recovery Flex Leg Sleeves
Leg sleeves are a great alternative to compression tights or leggings and fit nicely with or under any pair of athletic shorts or pants. These recovery sleeves will help provide targeted support to the quadriceps, hamstrings, and calves, while a flexible knee zone boosts comfort. The graduated fit will support blood circulation for an easy recovery.
Recovery Flex Arm Sleeves
These compression sleeves will make a great alternative to wearing a long-sleeve compression top and they can fit with or under any active top including tank tops and long-sleeve shirts. Our recovery arm sleeves help provide targeted support to the forearms, elbows, and biceps, aiding in supplying relief after a tough gym or lifting session. A flexible elbow zone provides greater comfort.
Compression Socks for Recovery
These socks will help relieve your feet and ankles after long periods of standing and workouts. The graduated fit supports blood flow for recovery while a vented toe panel helps with breathability.
Comfort is at the forefront of the design, with padded zones at the heels and balls of the feet as well as a seamlessly linked toe cage. Combine with one of our women’s recovery compression tights for maximum lower body recovery.
