The main point of compression is that the pressure on the tissues increases the venous return to the heart, which counteracts swollen legs, for example. Compression garments simply improve blood circulation. A pair of compression tights is much more than a regular workout garment. The fantastic fit gives an incredibly comfortable feeling and means that the clothes almost become part of the body. This means that compression garments work just as well when you're sweating on the running track or at the gym as when you're enjoying a well-deserved rest on the TV couch. Try it yourself and you'll understand exactly what we mean.
