Compression tights are sophisticated in design and provide consistent pressure to the legs, increasing blood circulation and aiding tired legs while offering a comfortable and durable wear. Explore our range of support tights.
Compression Tights for Women and Men
Compression tights feature gradient compression that decreases up the leg, ‘squeezing’ blood upwards back towards the heart to improve circulation efficiency.
When it comes to compression tights women want something that’s effective without compromising on style. Our collection features fashion forward styles from top brands such as Glamory and Wolford, including compression leggings for a sporty look (and enhanced support thanks to their thicker material). We offer compression men’s tights too!
Benefits of compression tights and leggings
Compression tights are often recommended by doctors for issues related to poor circulation, such as varicose veins. Although compression tights won’t cure them, they can reduce the appearance and associated painful symptoms. The pressure they create also helps reduce swelling, and is a cost-effective, easy to use and safe alternative to traditional multilayer bandaging for those suffering from issues such as lymphedema.
However, you don’t need to have poor leg health to benefit from compression tights! The circulation boost keeps your leg muscles energised if you are on your feet all day, plus increases athletic performance by allowing your leg muscles to function more efficiently and recover quickly.
Additionally, they’re great for those who find sitting at a desk causes swelling or discomfort in the ankles and feet. Our compression tights for women deliver their benefits while looking no different to any other office wear tights, and our low-rise compression men’s tights can be worn discreetly under trousers.
Compression socks are also a handy travelling essential while flying, especially long-haul, as they boost your comfort and reduce the risk of developing deep vein thrombosis.
Finally, compression tights can be highly beneficial during pregnancy. Expectant mothers often suffer from tired, swollen and achy feet and legs – all things that compression tights can help with!
Compression tights vs. support tights
Compression tights usually offer firmer pressure that is graduated along the leg, whereas support tights offer gentler, all-over compression. Support tights are only intended to be worn as a preventative measure by those with healthy veins.
