Wacoal Sports Science dedicates CW-X® to people everywhere in the world who love the exhilaration and challenge of sports. Because to celebrate sports is to celebrate what's best in human beings.

Japan's Wacoal Corp, the world's largest manufacturer of intimate apparel, has spent half a century creating clothing born of a deep understanding of the body. Combining its scientific knowledge of the human anatomy with its experience in complex fabrications and apparel design, the company first entered the performance sports apparel market in Japan in 1991 with CW-X® Performance Conditioning Wear.

The company's mission is to meet the sports performance needs of the active global consumer through the CW-X brand, the world's first truly anatomically-engineered high performance sports apparel, from full tights, 3/4 tights, shorts, sports tops, bras, and a full range of products designed with state of the art fabrics to support the VO2 oxygen uptake levels over periods of maximal effort. When wearing CW-X® tights the results show 26% and 36% lower oxygen usage compared to regular tights and shorts respectively, indicating lower energy expenditure in CW-X® tights.
