Can anyone recommend any good quality compression tights that won't necessarily break the bank please? For use in the gym for weightlifting rather than running so thermal properties not essential but need to be thick enough so they don't become transparent whilst wearing them :rotfl:

Cheers me dears :beer:

  • I've always worn skins (for running mind you) and have never had any issues with them.

    I haven't so far but I want to start competing on a local level (just found a new club) and compression tights help with recovery and transporting oxygen to muscles and decreasing DOMS. Plus they're more practical when doing deads and cleans by reducing friction.

    Good question, it is supposed to aid recovery and reduce the chance of injury - whether it does or not is another question but actually I've grown quite close to my compression gear and enjoy wearing it - it feels very comfy and now going back to loose fitting clothing for running is just not going to happen.

    They aren't strictly compression tights in a sporting sense. But Primarks shaper leggings are pretty good for sport.
  • I always wear loose stuff because I hate the way I look but I do need some new gym gear :) so I thought I would ask!

    I find loose stuff chafes, not great on long runs!!

    Plus, you can always wear loose stuff over the top of the compression gear.
