Care Instructions

2XU Compression garments require careful washing to protect the fabric and enhance its performance life. All 2XU Compression garments are engineered from powerful, technical and durable fabrics featuring world-class INVISTA LYCRA® fibre.

That said, even world-leading fabrics have product lives. To ensure your 2XU Compression garments deliver optimal performance and durability, we recommend you take the following steps:

  • Rinse in clean, cold water after a workout or swimming - sweat and chlorine will accelerate the degeneration of elastane
  • Hand wash in cold water is recommended. If using a machine, select a cold water setting for delicates.
  • Use a mild detergent - strong detergents can accelerate the degeneration of elastane
  • Do not bleach
  • Do not iron
  • Do not tumble dry
  • Do not dry in direct sunlight.


  • The PWX FLEX fabric delivers optimum power and flexibility to protect the abductor, glute, quad and hamstring muscles.
  • Drawstring waistband for an adjustable, secure fit.
  • Internal key pocket for essentials.
  • Flatlock seams to reduce chafe for greater comfort.
  • Powerful Invista LYCRA® for exceptional fit, support and recovery.
  • High filament yarns for dryness – wicks sweat from the skin to the fabric exterior.
  • Antibacterial and UPF50+ sun protection.

How should my 2XU Compression garments fit?

Your 2XU Compression garment should fit the body snugly and firmly without uncomfortably ‘cutting in’ to the body. If this is the case, you should review your size choice.


PWX technology utilises 2 unique fabrics; PWX Compression and 105D/K. Each fabric contains the following product enhancing features:


  1. Superior grade circular knit for 360º stretch + unsurpassed power

  2. Highest grade elastane yarns with invista lycra®

  3. Antibacterial + moisture wicking

  4. UPF 50+ sun protection

  5. Flat Lock stitching for maximum comfort.

    These compression shorts are fantastic. I am wearing them under tennis shorts & they have definitely helped with a recent groin pull. Can't wait for my second pair. Great support & fit. Keep up the good work!
  • Hope

    I've had many diffrent named brands of compression shorts but I never heard of 2XU. I was reading something on a site and they where tslking about this product. i decided to try a pair and i have no regreats whats so ever. They are GREAT!! AMAZING!! I have 3 in total and now my wife has a pair and she loves them. I will be getting a few more very soon. I would highly recommend them to everyone.
  • John

    I got a pair of shorts two years ago and I loved them so much to the point that I decided to buy more, and more and more. Now I have 10 pairs of black ones and I am ordering now the new ones in colors.

    The quality of the materials is impressive. I put them all together and cannot see the difference between the old ones and the new ones, and I wear them all on a daily basis.

    I'm looking forward to the new models and more colors. Now I am getting t-shirts to match the colors of the shorts.

  • Will

    I have worn compression shorts for some time and must admit that 2XU is something special. From the moment I squeezed in to the shorts and shirt, the fit was far superior to the other brands I have worn. I am back to order more gear. I will not workout without my 2XU compression gear.
  • Roy

    Great fit. Great-looking compression shorts. Works for me.
  • philip han

    love them, will buy more

    These compression shorts are absolutely amazing! I've gotten a few other pairs that were different brands and none even compare to these. I'm a pole vaulter and they meet every requirement I have for compression short that will help me succeed in my event. I will definitely be buying another pair in the future!
  • John.D

    By far my favorite compression shorts! I have used them now in various styles of training as well as just recovery time and they have proven very efficient. Looking forward to purchasing other compression products from 2XU.

  • goosehunter75

    These are great compression shorts. I just purchased my second pair. They have helped me bounce back from injury faster and I do not feel as sore after a long run. Only complaint is they are a little pricey. Glad to see they are now offered in more colors

    I purchased these compression shorts for the gym for which I attend. The fitness class is a mix of cardio and weight training. Prior to the 2XU compression short I used Nike and Under Armour. I believe for the money I was expecting more. I expected more of a snug fit for added support. I felt the same support in these compression shorts as I did with Nike and Under Armour that are half the cost. A positive is the length versus Nike and Under Armour. The 2XU covered more of my leg.
  • Davit H

    Love these compression shorts, works great for running. Noticeably less soreness, increased stamina.
  • Dave303

    Over all these are the best compression short that I own. The are great for training and recovery. Fit is good and not loose.
  • Jack

    The feel of the fabric used is great. My favorite compression clothing by far. Holds up to repeat wash and wear. I particularly like the subtle color of the Nero branding. Very classy and would hope it's used in other 2XU products. My only complaint is the high price, but the quality is the best of all I've tried.
  • Orlando

    This typr of compression short gives me plenty of support for my hamstrings and quads. They are slick too
  • David

    Great compression shorts. The fit is very snug and I can really feel the support while doing certain exercises. Muscles feel better while working out and maybe more importantly, the next day. Ill be ordering another pair when I can afford them!
  • Tyler

    I really like these shorts. I had been wearing Adidas and Nike shorts for a while, and wanted to make an investment on some higher quality compression products for running a marathon. I'm a Small/Medium in those other brands, so I opted for a Small in 2XU. The fit is great and the shorts don't ride up. The only issue with the fit is that they are somewhat low rise around the waist and I have to make sure they don't ride too low. The compression is great and leaves me feeling comfortable throughout a training run or race. I will be investing in more of these!

  • SharpTri

    These are my go to short for all things triathlon. This not only includes swimming/biking/running/gym training and racing. The best all around compression short period.
