Two main types are available: A) Slimming Leggings
and Tops help you slim and reduce Cellulite while you wear them B)
Running leggings and compression tights, help recovery after
exercise. Developed at Progressive Sports Technologies,
Loughborough University Sports Technology Institute, this
anti-cellulite sportswear uses graduated compression to reduce
cellulite caused by poor blood circulation, fluid retention and
lymphatic drainage. Applying compression to different areas of the
leg, these leggings help to not only pump blood back to the heart
but also carry excess water back into the bloods circulation
(lymphatic drainage). Using built-in beautifying ingredients in the
fabrics micro-encapsules, they deliver a delicious dose of
inch-losing, skin-smoothing retinol, caffeine, vitamin E, aloe
vera, etc. These micro-encapsules have 100-wash, stay-put power.
You can even exercise while wearing them, as this compression wear
uses micro-climate technology.
