I have SKINS compression leggings which are constructed to wrap around and support  specific muscles. Shoving thighguards between them and the muscles they're meant to support means they can't do their job that well. Might be different with other brands though.


I have skins too . the compression is unaffected. Tried to help .....

I,ve emailed George re more straps. But will have a play with the compression shorts failing that. I'll watch George's video again on how to shape properly.

I got some shock doctor shorts and they do the job well with no straps, bit longer than most compression shorts too.

So good I even bought a second pair.

Interesting question, I tend to strap them slightly differently every time I wear them. The standard waist strap, then the lower one on the thigh pad moves more. With the inner I find the X strap works nicely if its shaped well.

Had a chat with him this morning so like wise - looking forward to the newer, thicker straps than the original set I have

So if I'm honest i was a little disappointed when i first got my Strettons didn't find them as comfortable and moveable as all the reviews i had seen on here suggested but i thought i would just persist for the season and hope that they would eventually mould to my legs but they didn't tried different strapping configurations tried re moulding them loads of times but nothing really worked. So after a few emails back and forth with George explaining the issues i was having  he recommended a set of X straps and they worked wonders. I can now appreciate what everyone is on about they feel so much tighter and comfortable and easier to move about in...
