- Nov 15, 2018 -

Over the last few years sportsmen and women have begun wearing compression clothing.  These items fit tightly and include such items as socks, shorts, tights and shirts.  Compression clothing squeezes the muscles very tightly and it has been said that this type of clothing can improve performance and also assist with faster recovery.

Compression clothing is not only helpful to athletes, but also beneficial for people who may have to stand for long periods at a time, and for those with poor circulation.
