DICK'S Sporting Goods offers both simple and stylish compression clothing from more than a dozen major brands, including Under Armour, SKINS, Nike, Reebok and 2XU. Compression clothes like shorts, pants, capris, tops and socks are all available in a variety of styles for both men and women. DICK'S also has a large selection of women's sports bras.
Compression clothing options are available for any type of weather. Stylish tanks keep the body cool when it is hot outside, and lightweight cold-weather gear provides warmth and comfort in the harshest settings. A pair of compression shorts will help you achieve your best workout, and advanced sweat-wicking technology will keep you dry and prevent chaffing and rashes in any setting.
Compression clothing helps keep the muscles warm to prevent injuries, and moisture-wicking helps athletes feel cool and comfortable during their workouts. Compression underwear makes activities more comfortable by holding everything in place and improving circulation. Compression clothes should match the sport you are participating in and the weather conditions. Shorts and compression tanks provide maximum flexibility for a long run, but don't protect from harsh weather elements or prevent scrapes and bruises in contact sports.
Compression clothes should be snug, but comfortable. It is okay if the clothes feel a little tight, as long as the circulation is not impeded and there is no uncomfortable pinching or rubbing. DICK'S offers sizing charts to help customers find the perfect fit.
Tips and Expert Advice
Compression clothing reduces the buildup of lactic acid and improves your performance. The tight material decreases the vibration in your muscles and delays fatigue. The best compression clothes increase the blood flow to your muscles and restock your muscles with glycogen. The knit of the elastane fabrics determines the level of support.
Depending on the main muscles you exert during your exercise or sport, select pieces with graduated compression features. Socks must compress your calves less than your ankles and encourage your blood to flow freely while you run. Compression shirts hold your core muscles tighter than your arms and chest, and they encourage better posture and full breathing. Shorts and tights must hold the larger and stronger thigh muscle groups tighter than your knees and upper calves. Select pieces that offer extra support to your most heavily-used muscle groups.
