Title: GARMENT WITH COMPRESSION-GENERATING SECTIONS
Abstract:
Provided is a garment with compression-generating sections, wherein the garment forms a favorable silhouette by smoothing sagging and is able to maintain said silhouette even with movement, and with which the feeling of squeezing can be reduced. This garment (100) with compression-generating sections comprises main body sections (101), which include regions that are cylindrical when worn, and compression-generating sections (102) and is characterized in that: the main body sections (101) are stretchable to fit closely to the body; the compression-generating sections (102) are disposed in directions that follow Langer's lines above areas in which sagging of skin occurs; and the stretchability of the compression-generating sections (102) is lower than the stretchability of the main body sections (102) at least in the body part insertion direction in order to increase compression of the regions where the compression-generating sections (102) are provided.
