It's difficult to imagine a better scenario than using compression wear for weight loss. Just wearing compression garments can shape your body and make it look like you’ve lost weight.
But don’t let the apparent results fool you. Like with any worthwhile weight management solution, compression clothing is not necessarily an easy ticket to actually losing weight.
How Compression Gear Can Help You Lose Weight
There are many benefits to wearing compression clothing for people who are overweight, but it's important to understand how you actually get the benefits.
Improved Athletic Performance - This is one of the main benefits of compression wear in general. But it's not one that many overweight people consider. While you may not be running any marathons, compression tights can still help you get more out of any exercise or activity you do. The extra weight you carry can move and shift as you move and shift. That can increase fatigue and your risk of injury. The athletic support offered by compression gear helps to keep everything in place so you get more out of every activity and you can stay more active.
Better Circulation - Some compression clothing is used for treatment of medical issues, like lymphedema and restless leg syndrome, largely due to its ability to improve circulation. In addition to helping the body rid itself of impurities, better circulation and muscle support can help reduce fluid accumulation in certain areas, thereby lowering “water weight”.
- Anti-Cellulite Shapewear Massaging Action - If there is one form of compression wear that is clinically-proven to reduce inches in the areas it affects, it’s anti-cellulite Mass & Slim shapewear, including the slimming waist shaper. Infused with thousands of tiny ceramic beads, shapewear exerts a constant massaging action as you move. In addition to reducing inches, it is also proven to improve the appearance of cellulite.
