Are You Into Tight Clothes?
By Tom Herrin
No matter where people go, clothes are a big deal to some. At times, terms such as “dressing for success” are pretty common. The general idea is to promote an appearance that demonstrates confidence and respect. While working out may not be the same as trying to get a new job or performing better in the one they currently have, there are still benefits to dressing appropriate for the occasion. In today’s environment, many people choose dual purpose activewear. One of those that seems to be really popular is compression clothing. Not only is it seen at the gym or on the jogging track, but it is also frequently observed at schools, grocery stores, or at just about any other place people go.
Shirts or Tops Are Gaining in Use
A look around the local sportswear store will reveal that there is an increasing number of shirts on the market that fall into the compression category. They may not work wonders, but they may be able to provide a feeling of comfort during a workout. Some of those that fit loose are great for more casual wear. They also can help to provide a feeling of accomplishment if they are a good fit over a fit body.
The Socks Have a History of Success
People have been wearing compression socks for many years. They are intended to maintain good circulation by helping to move blood and prevent clots. They are particularly useful following surgeries but also may be good for those who suffer various other problems involving the veins. Many people find them helpful in preventing fatigue as well as providing support when they are unable to move around sufficiently.
Compression Shorts or Pants
I feel as if I see more and more people wearing compression shorts today. They are considered general apparel for almost any age. The shorts are pretty common among those who ride bicycles. I have worn them under my shorts for some things. I even wore them under my jeans when riding a horse. I found that they allowed me to avoid the problems I had always had with saddle-soreness, and they allowed for better airflow. This was in addition to the fact that they provided a little minor support. If you haven’t tried compression clothing, their comfort may surprise you. They may also do a few good things for your health.
