Understanding Compression Wear

4M7A3303

What is the point of compression clothing?

Compression wear is the best to wear when engaging in demanding physical activity. It helps boost circulation – resulting in more oxygen being transported to the active muscles, helping to improve performance. Compression wear can also help to reduce muscle fatigue. Compression wear is lightweight, breathable and body firming, making it ideal for both low and high impact training, competition as well as recovery.

How does compression wear work?

Compression wear works through the use of strategically placed panels. These panels wrap and support the major muscles being used in physical activity. Compression wear helps to reduce vibration and fatigue in the muscles. It can also help to keep you feeling dry, as the material is designed to wick moisture away from the skin. Many high-end compression brands contain a 50+ UV protection, making it perfect to wear all year round.

How does compression wear fit?

Most compression brands determine size using the BMI index, weight and height. Compression wear should be quite tight to work effectively.

At Sportsmart we stock compression tights, tops, shorts and socks. We also offer both normal compression and thermal compression – perfect for winter.

Choose from our extensive range of Men’s, Women’s and Junior compression, from brands including 2XU, Skins, Champion Performax and Mitre.
