What is Compression Underwear? Why wear it?

What is Compression Underwear?

Compression sportswear are garments designed and developed to keep the athlete's muscles warm and are believed to increase sports performance. They are mostly form-fitting covering the athlete's waist to mid or lower thigh. They are often made from a spandex/elasthan type of material, similar to cycling shorts.

Australian based Equmen and US based Spanx developed a revolutionary line of compression underwear based on these techniques used in compression sportswear.


Compression Underwear improves health, posture and well-being of men

  • Improves Posture: gently pulls the shoulders back to enable optimal alignment. Proper postural alignment is known to facilitate oxygen-flow for enhanced energy.
  • Supports core muscles and reduces back and muscle pain: by correcting posture and supporting the core, it allows the muscles to exert less effort in supporting the weight of the body, thereby relieving pain in back and core muscles.
  • Visibly streamlines: second skin fit and targeted compression visibly slims for a more tailored look.
  • Enhances blood circulation: helps to support healthy blood flow, oxygen and nutrient delivery.
  • Controls body temperature: targeted mesh, moisture-wicking fabric and anti-microbial properties ensure you stay dry and comfortable all-day.
