    Compression swim shorts

    I'm a cyclist recovering from old and new (minor) hamstring and other pelvic muscle/tendon injuries. I occasionally swim in the Olympic-size pool at the gym. A friend urged me to wear compression shorts for swimming to provide support to the muscles while they recover.

    Can anyone recommend specific compression swim shorts? I found a few different styles on-line - some are short and look like loose-fitting shorts, while others are long and with a snug fit down to the knees. I don't want to invest $100+.

    Thank you!

    I've never used compression swim shorts. I use Tyr Jammers and sometimes they're tight enough to feel like compression. Maybe your friend that recommended using them has a preferred brand.
