The 2XU Compression Short is designed to support this key area of the body throughout training and on race day. Suitable for wear under competition uniforms, 2XU has engineered the fit of this short to provide equal support to all regions of the upper leg - a particularly high stress and often injury stricken area.
2XU Compression features 50 denier LYCRA fibre while our competitors use 30/40 denier. Denier represents the thickness of the yarn. A thicker yarn delivers a stronger compressive power.
360 degree stretch: 2XU Compression garments are the only multipurpose compression garments constructed using a circular high gauge knit structure. This structure delivers an evenly distributed 360 degree stretch compression not achievable in garments with a traditional tricot knit.
Compression fit: 2XU's graduated compression technology boasts regulated pressure throughout all garments to deliver performance benefits during and post exercise. By enhancing circulation through increased venous function, more oxygenated blood is delivered to the muscles that need it most. At the same time, by-products created by exercise, such as lactic acid, are flushed from the muscles to reduce fatigue and decrease recovery time.

How should my 2XU Compression garments fit? Your 2XU Compression garment should fit the body snugly and firmly without uncomfortably "cutting in" to the body. If this is the case, you should review your size choice.
