5XL compression shorts

One of acquaintances just had bariatric surgery, and started exercising (boxing). His coach suggested that he should get compression shorts to improve his circulation. I pointed him to Aerotech Design but would like to get feedback from the forum on other suppliers.

Edit: I should add that I am not talking cycling shorts/bibs but more exercise/running.

FWIW, the science on compression clothing helping DURING exercise, like circulation that you speak of, is inconclusive at best. Compression clothing does show benefit POST workout with recovery however

Either way, I highly suspect he doesn't want to box wearing a chamois. Especially a thick one.

I'm not judging what his trainer stated; I'm just trying to help a guy find what he is looking for.

I added a clarification that he is indeed not looking for cycling shorts. Thanks for the comment; it helped clearing that out.

Thanks, I'll let him know. He is still in the 450+ range but went up to 550+ before the severe diet, and operation.
