How a new study is making you feel better about your body
A new study published in the journal PLOS One found that people who wear less compression garments than those who wear the full garment feel happier.
Researchers from the University of Rochester found that wearing a less compression garment reduced feelings of body dissatisfaction and discomfort compared to those who wore full-length clothing.
They theorized that those wearing less compression felt happier for more of a reason.
“People wear compression garments because they are not as comfortable, but they can be quite uncomfortable, and it seems to help them feel less depressed and more contented,” said lead author Dr. Andrew Miller, an associate professor of exercise and sport sciences.
“For those who are trying to achieve some sort of fitness goal, they may be able to get a little bit of a boost by wearing a compression garment,” Miller said.
“That can be really helpful in a couple of ways, like, you know, if you’re doing a marathon, or trying to get in shape.
It can help you feel lighter, like you’re in a better mood.””
I think that compression garments really are a good way to make you feel a little less miserable and more like you have a body, and I think they’re really helpful,” Miller added.
