Our Compression

Your Compression Tights should feel form-fitting through your thighs, hips and waist.

You should be able to notice compressive pressure throughout the entire garment from ankle to waist without feeling restricted in your range of motion.

The waistband should feel comfortable and supportive, but not digging in.

If it’s your first time trying on compression you may find putting them on a bit more of a workout than you expected.

Our Compression Tights have a graduated fit with the firmest part being at the ankle to improve blood flow circulation. This means they will be firm to put your foot through the ankle, and then continue to pull the excess up the leg.

Ensure the fabric is gradually pulled up your legs to avoid having fabric sagging down at the crotch which may cause discomfort.

If you’re putting on Compression Tights with bare feet, your skin will have more friction resistance. If experiencing difficulties, we recommend putting socks on first to help the fabric slide over your feet.

Ultimate Recovery

Although we’ve researched our knit structure and fabrics to ensure they last, it’s important to care for compression garments to give them their longest possible lifetime.
We recommend washing with cold water as soon as possible after each use to ensure sweat is removed from the fabric. Hand washing is most suitable otherwise you may use delicate cycle in a washing machine. Hang to dry and do not use a dryer.

Compression should be firm and supportive to provide muscle stability and circulation benefit, however it’s important that you are comfortable.

If downsizing, you can expect that the garment will provide greater compression power, however it’s important that the waistband isn’t digging in, restrictive and still provides full coverage – we don’t want them to be sheer and see-through!

If you were to upsize, you would expect that it will be easier to get the Compression Tights on and likely more comfortable, however may not be applying the same pressure compared to true sized tights. Be mindful you will want to avoid having excess fabric which would be moving around potentially contributing to chafing or requiring you to frequently pull them up/adjust the fit.

Compression Tights are very versatile which will provide benefits for warm-up, during active use, recovery, injury management, travelling and medical needs. Refer to each product page to understand which product is best suited for your needs. The longer you wear compression the better the muscle support and circulation, but if you experience any discomfort, we recommend removing them for a period of time.
