Warning: Stop Wearing Skinny Jeans As It Was Found To Be Dangerous For Your Health


The old saying that "beauty is pain" needs to be tossed along with your skinny jeans. Doctors say they could be dangerous.


A new study says squatting in tight jeans for a long time can seriously damage muscles and nerves in your legs and feet.

The study was conducted because of one case that alarmed many skinny jeans user. 

It focuses on the 35-year-old woman that had to be cut out of a pair of her jeans after her calves blew up in size Published in the Journal of Neurology Neurosurgery & Psychiatry, the woman, reportedly, had spent her day squatting for hours as she helped a relative move. 

Afterwards, as she was walking home, her feet grew numb, and she fell to the ground, where she remained for hours before she was found and taken to the hospital.

Doctors in Australia report that unidentified woman was hospitalized for four days after experiencing muscle damage, swelling, and nerve blockages in her legs.

"We were surprised that this patient had such severe damage to her nerves and muscles," said Dr. Thomas Kimber of the Royal Adelaide Hospital in Australia.

Kimber said tight jeans have previously been reported to cause nerve lesions in the groin but not the kind of nerve problems in the lower leg and severe muscle damage they saw. 

He said squatting compressed the nerves in the lower leg, reducing the blood supply to the calf muscles and that the skinny jeans worsened the problem.

After being treated for four days the woman still had some weakness in her legs but walked out of the hospital and later recovered fully.

Kimber doesn't know if the woman still wears skinny jeans but warned her against the dangers of squatting in them.
