Yeah, you heard right. Skinny jeans! It’s quite surprising, but sometimes the clothes we wear can actually affect our health!
Did you know that the British Chiropractic Association announced that about a third of women suffer constantly from back pain, of which the wrong kind of clothes and really heavy jewelry are to blame? There are several kinds of clothing that can affect your health, but let’s talk about skinny jeans today.
They have become a staple in every girl’s wardrobe. They go with practically anything. Flats, heels, blazers, chiffon blouses or T shirts, you can always rock them in skinny jeans.
But now, we’re hearing they are dangerous to the health. A 35-year-old Australian lady was hospitalized due a condition she had called the Compartment Syndrome (This is the first time I’m hearing of it too, so you are not alone!). This condition is a result of swelling or bleeding within muscles and was supposedly made worse by her skinny jeans. The woman reported that she had spent the day squatting and emptied out cupboards before she started feeling a tingling sensation in her legs. Her ankles actually swelled up to the extent that she couldn’t take them off herself.
The doctors had to cut it off her body to examine her.
But by now, you should know that you shouldn’t do exercises in skinny jeans.
Nope. Not a good idea.
But this isn’t the first time we’ve been warned about skinny jeans and other really tight trousers on health basis. Men have been warned that extremely skinny trousers can lead to twisted testicles.
It is also said that tight trousers make urinary tract infections and heartburn symptoms worse. – especially tight high waisted trousers.
Personally, I think the Australian lady’s case was a rare one cos I am still going to rock my skinny jeans, cautiously though. Lol. You really shouldn’t wear them to exercise or do strenuous physical activities.
Will stop wearing skinny jeans for these warnings?
