Brightlife GO


Have you ever heard of Brightlife GO?  I hadn't. But because I am the author of a fashion column I am introduced to many companies and designers than I wouldn't have heard about otherwise.

One of the companies I've recently reviewed was Brightlife GO, which specializes in compression gear.   But WAIIT, they don't stop at just socks and sleeves.




1. BrightLife realizes that athletes also have everyday lives outside of training and racing. For this reason, they sell recovery products that you can wear at any time, not just those moments after the competition.


2.When I first visited the BrightLife website I was overwhelmed with all the options in recovery and compression gear. Sure there is your normal athletic looking socks and sleeves but BrightLife also sells compression gear that is suitable to wear to work, school, while traveling, or running errands all while  experiencing leg fatigue. Selections include argyles, polk a dots, fun stipes, houndstooth, and many more.  No one will ever know they are compression recovery socks. These recovery socks even come in a variety of fabrics, including wool which helps to regulate body temperature in both hot and cold temperatures.


3. Do you need to dress your outfit up a bit more yet still need a little compression? No worries. In addition to socks, BrightLife offers compression thigh highs and compression pantyhose. I had a chance to try the pantyhose and I will say they are very durable and really make your legs look toned. Because they are made with compression material they are bit more difficult to slide on and off than regular pantyhose but that is to be expected. Even regular compression socks are difficult to put on and take off. The feature I liked most about the compression pantyhose from BrightLife is that they are not as high waisted as other pantyhose. Have you ever had that rolling bulge from your pantyhose around your waist line? You won’t have that with these pantyhose. 



4. In addition to calf sleeves, socks, thigh highs, and pantyhose, BrightLife also offers compression leggings. I have not tried the compression leggings yet but plan to in the future. BrightLife has some specialized collections too. They have a maternity line of compression products called the “Preggers” collection, and they also have a collection for “petites” and “plus size”.

5. All of their compression products come in a variety of colors so you can choose to stay “neutral” or jazz it up a bit with some color and fun patterns.  When you order products from BrightLife you can choose which compression level you are seeking. Levels range from light, mild, and moderate gage compression.

BrightLife does not just sell compression recovery gear for women, men will find a plethora of items to suit their recovery needs too.  To check them out and find some stylish compression gear to fit your own needs go to www.BrightLifeGo.com.

Do you wear compression gear to work?
