Compression leggings were designed to help athletes manage the pain that can accompany an extra hard workout. They fit snuggly to apply overall or targeted pressure to minimize inflammation, swelling, and cramping. That snug fit makes them a fashion favorite outside of the gym as well. The form-fitting style smooths your shape and minimizes the need to tug and adjust your leggings as you go through the day. Celebrities have been working this trend and we’ve listed their best looks below. Most compression leggings are already pretty affordable, but in case you’re seriously pinching pennies, we’ve included some more economical options as well.
