Long Sleeve Compression Shirts for Women

Long Sleeve Compression Shirts: Get The Best Out of Your Bodies

With more and more women playing football and rugby these days

The demand for long sleeve compression shirts for women are increasing each day.

Obviously, I don’t need to tell you that they are used for every sport

But with the bangs and knocks you get in rugby they can be really helpful for post training and games

It is said that women who wear compression clothing after a game of rugby or football

Tend to recover quicker than women who just lounge about in a onesie or some comfortable joggers and a hoody

Yes, you know who you are girls

How do Compression Clothes Work?

Make sure to stretch before exercising

They are not designed to stop pain altogether but to help reduce it. Always make sure you stretch before and after any physical training.

The reason for this is that compression clothing are designed to constrict your muscles and reduce some fluid build-up which helps with any pressure or swelling.

They can also help to improve blood flow to the muscles which removes creatine kinase which is an enzyme in your muscles that somehow works its way out of your bodies muscles if they have been damaged and can cause the pain that you feel after a rigorous workout.

Look at it this way girls, if your evil sadistic coach has made you run for an hour uphill, then an hour downhill (which is harder than it sounds trust me) certain muscles will become inflamed which leads to swelling and increased pressure and you guessed it…..PAIN!

Will Long Sleeve Compression Clothes Improve Performance?

Most compression garments are made out of a blend of nylon and spandex…kinky! and over the years they have been advertised to “flatten your belly” or “enhance your boobs” but do they actually improve physical performance?

There have been many debates for and against so I will not be answering that as you have to make your own minds up with that one.

You can read about it here in the huffington post and decide for yourselves

Thanks for the informative post.
I’m the kind of person that don’t handle wearing full sleeves while working out, I have low blood pressure so if I feel little bit hotter than it should be while exercising, my pressure drops and I become dizzy.
I loved the idea, but I think I’d go for the short sleeves shirts if available.


Thanks for your comment
