The Science

True Compression

Many brands say they're compression wear. We really are! Our leggings feature a compression range of 10-12 mmHg.

We source our fabric from one of the top compression mills in France. Our leggings are designed with a gradient pattern—which means tighter at the ankle and looser up the leg—to encourage blood flow back to the heart.

Our patent-pending MicroPerle™ beads are mapped to the body’s lymphatic vessels. Combined with compression, each one applies very gentle pressure to encourage proper lymphatic return.

They sit strategically where lymph stagnation can cause orange peel skin, or cellulite. Think of it as a mini lymphatic drainage massage while you move. Voilà!

Your Wellness Highway

We all have a lymphatic system that runs throughout our bodies, carrying infection-fighting cells and constantly working to filter out toxins.

Unlike our blood circulatory system which has the heart to act as a pump, lymph fluid must be manually stimulated.

A properly flowing lymph system means better immunity, radiant skin and overall health. Who doesn't want that?!

Clinically Proven

Can your other leggings say that?

We put our garments to the test. In a small, controlled study with a leading dermatology testing lab. Each participant wore her leggings while exercising for 45 minutes, 3 days a week for a total of 8 weeks.

And here's what they had to say:

100% of subjects felt:
* The overall appearance of their thighs improved
* Signs of cellulite were visibly reduced
* Their skin seemed firmer

The conclusion: The photographic study showed a significant improvement in skin texture!

Loved by The Expert

I've spent my entire adult life working as a lymphatic health therapist, practitioner, educator and activist. What I've learned in the past 25 years is that when you take care of your lymphatic system, you will look and feel better from the inside out.

I recommend Élastique because they are the only legging company in the world that got the equation right: comfortable compression leggings that target your thighs and tush to shape and sculpt the parts of your body most vulnerable to stagnation and toxic buildup.
