Athletic Essentials: Learn About Women’s Compression Pants & Capris
From the track to the studio, you need athletic gear that works as hard as you do.
Women’s compression pants help fortify your body as you train—engaging and supporting muscles so you can perform at your peak. Plus, they come in a variety of styles that can take you beyond the gym.
Go for vivid hues, fun prints or ultra-flattering grays and blacks. Plus, can wear your compression pants alone or as a baselayer. Pull together your look with compression gear from Nike®, Under Armour®, CALIA By Carrie Underwood® and much more.
Compression bottoms are made from synthetic, elastic-gradient fabric, designed to mold to the curves of your body. A tight, graduated fit boosts blood circulation in your legs. This aids in muscle recovery and helps relieve mild soreness and stiffness post-training.
In addition to the functional benefits of compression, many athletes love the sleek, figure-flattering look of compression bottoms. They’re perfectly paired with a T-shirt, tank or sweater. Just mix, match and layer with a variety of colors and prints. After your workout session is over, you can take on the rest of your day with these versatile bottoms.
When it comes to buying compression pants, it’s all in the details.
Flatlock seams prevent uncomfortable, bunching and chafing. And most pairs of women’s compression pants feature moisture-wicking technology, which uses microfibers to move sweat from your skin—keeping you dry and comfortable as you head into the next rep.
Triangular stretch gussets and four-way stretch fabric ensure complete freedom of movement. For a seamless look, try compression pants with a wide, flat band. Looking for something else? Shop more women’s athletic apparel at DICK’S Sporting Goods.
