More expensive than the Tesla Brand I tried ( And more expensive. Regardless still 5 stars because the results are the same if not better in reference to form/compression. So that more people can have a better understanding of the sizes at least from a 2xl standpoint.
I'm 6'3 304 lbs - 48inch chest, - 45 inch waist . 2xl in both the brands fit me. The second link was easier to put on, but then what would be the point in being called a compression shirt? Tesla brand is lighter, but both performed the same in matter of wicking away sweat and skin like comfort during day to day and working out. Both shirts hold in place and never roll up, and you have zero movement impairment, (I am mentioning this because I am working down my lovely gut). Between the two it really comes down to preference and how much you are willing to spend. But with either one you can't go wrong. I have also washed both in cold water, gentle cycle. Tested both on low dry and air dry and they have kept their elasticity.

This compression shirt is a great value and a quality product. I purchased this to help me hold things together after losing 55lbs in just over 3 months. With my current weight and size (43” chest now), it was difficult to put on, but it really compresses. So much so that it was a little uncomfortable. I probably should have ordered a size up. I’m not returning it because I still have about 40lbs to lose, so I’m hoping that I’ll eventually fit the shirt better sometime in the near future. I really like the longer length, and there’s also a “rubberized” band at the bottom of the shirt which helps hold it in place while being worn. Overall, it’s an amazing compression shirt. I’m looking forward to when I can wear this on a regular basis.
Addendum 11/29/18: Lost another 10 lbs and it's a perfect fit. Very comfortable and durable. Bought another one in black.
Addendum again: Bought another in gray. :)

I love these CompressionZ T-shirts. Over the years I have worn several
brands and tend to wear one on a daily basis. Given what others had to
say about CompressionZ, I took the plunge and ordered ten.

My first impressions of the CompressionZ shirts: they are by far the
best value at any price point and their initial quality is the best of
all the brands I have owned. The material does appear to be a little
thicker/better than most and I am eager to see how they hold up across time.

The CompressionZ shirt has 12 panels, 10 compression panels and 2 vent
panels (under the arms). My other compression shirts have from 4 to 6
panels. The CompressionZ panels are sewn in such way as to not be
noticed yet their placement seems offer superior support and overall
comfort. Movement is free, the neck and shoulders are not constrictive.
The detailed design and workmanship really set this shirt
apart from the rest. I like the rubberized grip-strip along the inside of the bottom
edge. This feature keeps the shirt in place over several hours and
during active workouts.

My sports: mtb, trail running, time in the gym.

I like the CompressionZ range of product offerings and appreciate the relational
approach of the company. I am confident I will be buying more in the future.

This compression wear by CompressionZ is a great find. I took a chance ordering one because I had never really worn compression clothing, nor had I ever heard of the brand - simply put, they nailed it.

The compression feels great & its cooling effect is noticeable. After my first, I made another order - I've been wearing them whenever I am going to be active during the day for about 6mo now, 1-2 washes a week, & they're still perfect. They are much better than other name brand compression wear that I have now tried.

As for sizing, I went off their chart - if you know your chest size, you're golden. Do keep in mind that this is not a loose clothing; this is an elastomeric fabric stitched to provide consistent compression on your core, chest, and upper arms.

Exceptional Value!!!

My fiance's Orthopedic Surgeon recommended another shirt to help rehab his shoulder. It costs $95. It is very well made but so long that it's is uncomfortable even for a man who is 6" tall plus it rides up. He really needed more shirts to change out with that one so I started shopping around. This shirt has several features that make it a much better choice for almost 1/5 the price. This shirt has a band at the bottom that keeps it from riding up...excellent...

This shirt fits him properly in a large which is the size he wears in most shirts. To be beneficial. it needs to fit so tight that it's really difficult to get on and off. He is just thrilled with his new shirt and we will be buying many more. It would make him really happy if there were other colors like navy or dark gray.

Thank you for providing such a fantastic product at such an affordable price. And BTW....I paid full price and was really skeptical that this would work for him. I'm so glad I gave it a try.

I pulled a muscle in my shoulder and it was impractical for me to completely immobilize it. I did my best to limit movement but found it impossible to prevent disturbing the initial injury. The long story short is that the compression provided by this shirt was phenomenal! For my situation it provided the perfect amount of restriction needed to help the muscles and ligaments involved in the shoulder joint to heal.
The compression is "severe" but not uncomfortable. I wear it several hours per day without any negative consequences. I am 6'2 and 210 lbs. The large was a great fit for me. Note that it's a really tight fit! That's what made it a perfect fit for me and my situation.

Really good quality shirt, good material.
The rubber keeper inside the hem on the bottom of the shirt is fantastic for stopping the shirt riding up while exercising.
Only complaint is that the sleeves are very tight fitting and cut in on your skin after awhile.

Good quality material,sizing guide is spot on however if you work out and have large biceps the hem on the sleeves are a bit tight.
Really like the rubber keeper band on the hem at the bottom of the shirt that stops it riding up.

La camiseta de compresion es perfecta. Por sacarle alguna cosilla, yo la fabricaria un poco mas corta ya que puenso que es demasiafo larga (compre una talla M)
