Whether you’ve seen compression arm sleeves worn by professional athletes or by someone working out at the gym, it’s hard not to notice the amount of attention arm sleeves have been getting. We have been surrounded with sports stars like LeBron James, Robert Griffin III, Ray Allen, Kobe Bryant, Johnny Manziel, Allen Iverson, Dwyane Wade and many more who all famously wear compression garments. Although compression sleeves are usually used to treat medical problems or to help heal after an injury, arm sleeves can be worn regularly to help keep you energized by reducing muscle fatigue, improving circulation, increasing performance, providing protection from injury and can even reduce soreness as well.

With tons of pro athletes such as Robert Griffin III regularly using compression arm sleeves, they are starting to make a fashion statement. When asked why he wears an arm sleeve on his left hand (when he throws with his right), the quarterback claims that it’s not about functionality, it’s about feeling good. As more and more people demand to know why he always wears it, RGIII explains the rituals that him and other players have; “You see we [NFL players] do these things because they make us comfortable. Not to be different. Been wearing a sleeve and glove for 10 years.”

Like RGIII, Allen Iverson was introduced to compression arm sleeves because of an injury, but came to like them so much that he continued to wear them! And conveniently enough, it helped to cover up tattoos that are not allowed in the NBA. Clever right? Thanks to LympheDIVAs and LympheDudes, there are now tons of fun, eye-catching and unique patterns of compression arm sleeves and gloves to choose from. Now you can boost your confidence with fresh compression arm sleeves just like the pros.

Yes, arm sleeves can also keep you warm, but did you know that the Core-Sport Gradient Compression Arm Sleeve, along with a lot of other products sold on BrightLife Direct are antimicrobial to protect your body against bacteria and also helps to eliminate odors.
