I am definetely a woman who "needs some extra coverage!" Haha, but I just look at it as more to love! However, sometimes you just feel like compressing things a little. That's why these Women's RRS Velocity 6" Compression shorts are right up my alley! Whenever I wear them, things feel way more compact. And you should see the stares! For all those "large and in charge" women out there who occasionally feel the need to compress, I highly recommend these!
