Traveling long distances can sometimes wreak havoc on your body. Your skin may dry out, your feet and ankles may swell, or even worse, you may experience a blood clot that can lead to pulmonary embolism. I know that dry, dehydrated skin is bad, but from what I’ve heard from fellow travel mates, having a near death experience from a blood clot formed during long-haul travel isn’t a walk in the park either. It is recommended that frequent long distance travelers incorporate compression tights into their travel wear.


I’ve had the chance to review a pair of the CEP Women’s Recovery Pro Compression Tights. Keep reading to learn more.

First, let me introduce you to CEP. They’re a German-based brand that is part of Medi, a high-tech manufacturer of medical compression, orthopedic, and prosthetic products. CEP offers a collection of shorts, tights, and shirts, short socks, knee socks and sleeves for use to “…enhance performance and recovery through the targeted use of compression to improve blood circulation and speed up lactate metabolism.”

The keywords in their brand description are “improve blood circulation”. Long-haul travel usually means sitting for long periods of time, which restricts blood circulation to the legs, and that’s where compression tights come into play.

The CEP Women’s Recovery Pro Compression Tights are black, air-permeable knit material made up of 75% nylon and 25% spandex. Be forewarned that the tights, although they look opaque, you can see through them. Please do not try and wear them without something over it. The tights, although hard to put on and were very tight, they worked.

CEP Compression Tights Under Travel Garments


Under my favorite travel garments, I wore the CEP Women’s Recovery Pro Compression Tights during a flight and on a road trip. I was surprised at how the sleepy, tingly feeling that I usually get when I’m not using my legs as much, wasn’t there.

If you’re like me, one of those people who do not walk the plane for leg exercise, unless you’re getting up to go to the bathroom, then the CEP Women’s Recovery Pro Compression Tights just might be something you should look into.

CEP Women’s Recovery Pro Compression Tights can be purchased from the CEP website for $105.
