You might have encountered Compression Wear as the compression stockings airlines now recommend you wear during long haul flights; however this is not their only use.
Compression for Sport
If you are an athlete or partake in sport at a high level, wearing compression garments can improve post exercise recovery and reduce the risk of injury. High impact sports such as running or cycling can be hard on your legs in particular and compression socks or compression tights will benefit you greatly and allow you to continue your active lifestyle. Compression sleeves can benefit tennis injuries or other arm injuries.
Compression for Work
If you work in an industry that requires you to stand a lot of the time, like hairdressing or waitressing for example, compression stockings or tights will relieve your tired and achy legs. If you travel long distance or travel a lot for work, compression socks or travel socks will give great relief to leg cramps.
Compression Medical and Maternity

During pregnancy, compression tights can increase the blood flow to the heart, may reduce fluid retention as well as the issue of varicose veins.
