Daily Compression Wear
Do you wear compression wear? This gear is a staple in many people’s daily wardrobe whether it’s for working out, shaping their body under their clothing (shapewear), or as a medical device for several purposes. High-performance athletes wear compression wear for improved performance. However, you don’t need to be a sports star to wear compression wear on a regular basis.
In fact, there are many benefits to wearing compression gear regularly. But, like anything else, you should know your options before getting started. You should also know whether compression wear might be a good option for you to wear every day.
What is compression wear?
Compression wear might look like tight or sleek sports garments or a silky undergarment with a sheen to it. The material is woven very tightly in order to provide comfortable support while restricting the movement of your body. These garments give a feeling of support to your body’s tissues while you are moving around or working out, which many find to be comfortable.
And don’t worry, you should be able to move around without restriction. If you can’t there is a chance your compression wear is way too tight.
Types of compression wear
There are different types of “grades” of compression wear depending on how tight the fabric is. Compression wear for daily use tends to be slightly less tight. This is to provide enough comfortable compression while still allowing ease of movement and unrestricted support.
Compression wear that is “medical grade” is woven more tightly as it is designed to be worn after surgery or as a medical device with regards to circulation. Ask your physician before use, as compression wear isn’t necessarily safe for everybody.
Sportswear and shapewear compression is likely not a medical-grade but you can check with a sales representative if you’re unsure.
Compression wear for daily use
In addition to compression wear for athletes, compression wear for daily use can be beneficial to those with extra weight or extra skin on their bodies. This is because it provides a unique type of support.
Not only does compression wear provide support for your body as you go about your daily routine, but it also helps improve circulation throughout the area of use. If you spend a lot of time on your feet, wearing daily compression wear on your lower half could help you keep your blood flowing.
At the end of a long day, you may feel “fresher” than you have previously since your body has been circulating blood and repairing any muscle fatigue or micro-tears that would normally have occurred on a regular basis.
Buying compression wear for daily use
There’s more to buying compression wear than just selecting a tight garment or piece of clothing. As mentioned, compression garments shouldn’t be too tight or feel like they’re cutting off your circulation. As a result, high-quality compression gear will always be custom sized. You will need to take your measurements and apply them using a sizing chart provided by the company you’ll be ordering from.
The type of compression wear that you choose to buy will depend on your body’s measurements and your goals. Start with tights or shorts, as your lower half is required for most day-to-day activities.
These garments also provide a smoother and sometimes “ideal” silhouette. Whether this was your intention for selecting shapewear to wear on a daily basis or a nice additional benefit of your compression wear for health purposes.
