I wear the compression shorts and the sports bra. I am very satisfied with the Knapman compression wear. The sports bra is comfortable. The underwire in the sports bra feels comfortable and does not irritate. The shorts also have great comfort of wear.

By N.E.C. I discovered the Knapman compression wear. Since then I train and play while wearing the compression shorts. I notice that the shorts provide extra stability for my upper leg muscles.They give me the feeling that I can up my game without being injured.

During the journey to our training camp in Marbella, I wore the compression tights. Now I also wear the tights after a training or competition and I even sleep in them. When I wake up, I really notice that my muscles are less fatigued. The tights enhance muscle recovery!
