The brand 2XU means 2 Times You, and was launched in Australia in 2005. Since then, these Australian compression garments have graced the bodies of multiple world champion athletes, become the official compression partner to some of the world’s best teams, and been the secret recovery weapon to most pro basketball and football teams. No matter what sport you're into 2XU makes compression garments that will give you the confidence to perform at your peak, and will assist you to recover quickly afterwards.
Women's 2XU compression leggingsBy: Susan George on 26 November 2018I have a pair of 2xu leggings for compression (recovery) and have been pleased with the brand. They offer more 'strength' compared to cheaper compression brands designed for sports but less than a pair of compression stockings designed for preventing DVT. I would like to get a second opinion on sizing one day. The logo (blue colour) is also coming off, and I think I should have got a black/grey one which would be less obvious when it starts cracking. But maybe it's just time for a new pair!
