Based on recent medical investigations, skinny jeans are a threat to health, medical experts warn in order to prevent women from wearing clothes that are too tight. The warning was issued after a woman from Australia suffered severe leg injuries last week.
Previous medical researches have repeatedly stressed the role that clothes play on our general health condition. The conclusion that they reached back then was that tight clothes made out of non-natural fibers could be extremely noxious to people’s health.
Particularly women who choose to wear tight pants tend to suffer from various leg affections, such as, capillaries and muscle stretching. Cellulites is also favored by this type of clothes, so women who want to lose weight and solve similar skin issues should avoid close-fitting items.
Medical experts’ fears have been confirmed when a woman from Australia was brought to the hospital in a severe health condition last week. According to their medical report, the woman’s legs became temporarily paralyzed because she wore a pair of skinny jeans for too long.
The 35-year-old declared that she wanted to help her friend move out; therefore she spent the whole day squatting and standing. Unfortunately, the outfit that the woman chose for the respective activity was not at all appropriate.
The skinny jeans that the patient wore exercised a continuous pressure on the woman’s blood veins; thus, blocking the blood flow in the legs. Moreover, the many squats that the Australian woman was forced to carry out contributed to the worsening of her state.
When the patient was brought to the hospital, her legs were so swollen that medical experts had to cut the skinny jeans in order to remove them. Her muscles were tight and further medical investigations revealed that the muscles and the arteries were numb as a result of the strong pressure they have been subject to. The patient, herself was on the point of becoming unconscious.
Dr Sreedhara Doddery, a renowned orthopedist from iCare Clinics told the press that the recent case is clear evidence that tight clothing is not good for our health. He explained that the muscles of the leg, as well as the knee are compressed by skinny trousers causing the calf and the leg muscles to become numb.
Women who choose to wear this type of clothes for a long period of time may eventually suffer of temporary paralysis of the legs. However, the same warnings are valid for men, as well, who may even suffer from infertility if they choose to wear tight-fitting pants.
