While traditionally women’s compression clothing was only worn by those who suffered from a medical condition such as varicose veins or swelling of the legs, in recent years compression gear has seen a massive surge in popularity. With manufacturers designing garments that are stylish, colorful, and practical, meaning the decision to purchase compression clothing has never been easier. 

From supporting your muscles while you work out, to helping reduce your risk of DVT (deep vein thrombosis), to keeping you looking trim all day long, keep reading to discover the top six benefits of compression clothing for women. 

  • Reduced muscle soreness & faster recovery

Whether you favor high-intensity exercise or a more moderate workout routine, compression yoga pants can help support your body. By reducing the muscle vibration through your leg muscles and tendons when your feet strike the ground, you are less likely to feel fatigued during exercise and less likely to experience muscle soreness the next day.

Compression garments can also help improve the circulation of oxygen to your muscles post-exercise which can further aid muscle recovery. 

  • Increased comfort 

You may not know this, but compression clothing is actually incredibly comfortable. Known for their ability to reduce sweating and chafing, compression pants will not ride up when you are running, doing squats, or stretching. 

Plus, you are not confined to just wearing them at the gym, or wherever you choose to work out, compression clothing can be worn throughout the day and into the evening. Try dressing up compression pants with a smart blazer and scarf for a casual, yet comfortable look. 

  • Enhanced shape

If you want to conceal any lumps and bumps and achieve a smooth body shape, compression garments can help you. With many pants offering a high waistband and stomach control, you will be able to feel confident and comfortable when working out or simply going about your day. 

Choose from a wide range of colors, from slimming black to “look at me” neon, you will be able to find the perfect pair of pants for you and your individual style. 

  • Can help with vein disorders

Coping with achy, tired and swollen legs isn’t much fun and can be exacerbated by several different conditions including edema, varicose veins, and deep vein thrombosis. Vein disorders can be a result of obesity, surgery, extended sitting or standing, hormonal changes or just as a natural part of the aging process. Fortunately, compression garments can help to soothe swollen legs and ankles by applying pressure and improving blood flow. 

  • Increased flexibility

If you usually prefer to hide in loose clothing when you are working out, you may be surprised to hear that tighter garments are actually better for your body. Specifically designed to support you as you move, the stretchiness of compression clothing allows you to stretch, lift and extend safely. 

  • Showcase your muscles 

For those that are proud of their bodies and want to flaunt their physique as they workout, compression clothing can help to showcase any muscle definition. Women, in particular, can enjoy the way that compression pants outline their buttocks, thighs, and calves.
