Form-fitting athletic garments may provide different elasticity and therefore different amounts of support along different directions. A relatively elastic textile may be used to form a form-fitting compressive garment such as shorts, shirts, leggings, bodysuits, socks, and the like. Stitch lines may be formed in the relatively elastic textile extending in a desired direction using thread(s) and/or stitch construction techniques to provide reduced elasticity along the direction of a stitch line. One or more stitch lines may be formed in a textile to provide enhanced support along the direction of the stitch line(s). An interior textile layer may be adhered the relatively elastic textile layer to contact the wearer's skin and to protect the wearer's skin from stitch lines. An interior textile layer may extend over all or part of the relatively textile layer.
