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. Recently the company launched the CW-X® brand in the US market through the newly formed Wacoal Sports Science Corp.
Wacoal Sports Science Corporation, headquartered in New York City, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Wacoal International. The company’s mission is to meet the sports performance needs of the active US consumer through the CW-X brand, the world’s first truly anatomically-engineered high performance sports apparel.
