How does their tight fit affect your body and health?

Skinny jeans can cause icky, sweaty legs and may often be uncomfortable on the waist. But these discomforts mean nothing, in the face of the real damage that they can cause.

Let`s see them:

Health complications can be caused by a pair of jeans that are just a little too tight. The most common are Lipoatrophia Semicircilaris and Meralgia Paraesthetica.

Lipoatrophia Semicircularis

Lipoatrophia Semicircularis is is known like “ribbed thighs”.  This can occur for a variety of reasons, including wearing skinny jeans. Ribbed thighs usually develop in those who, in addition to wearing tight jeans, remain in a seated position (for example, in the workplace) for long hours. According to a study by Spanish Researchers in 2008, the woman who wears skinny jeans and works in sitting position more than 8 hours, exerted the maximum pressure.

Symptoms: itching, irritation, tingling and burning of the skin.

Meralgia Paraesthetica

This condition occurs when the nerve that is responsible for supplying movement and sensation to your thigh is compressed. Also, Meralgia Paraesthetica is known as “the skinny pants syndrome”.

Symptoms: tingling sensation, burning and shooting pain in the outer area of the thigh, knee pain, buttocks.

Reproductive Problems (men)

Also skinny jeans can raise the heat in the groin area and reduce sperm productions. May lead to a testicular torsion, a condition in which the testicle twists. If you don`t consult your doctor, who can help medically, the testicle can lose blood circulation, leading to further damage.


Skinny jeans have a tight-fitting waist. It can put pressure on the abdomen, forcing the stomach acid to flow upwards. That can increase the risk of heartburn.

Bladder infection

Tight skinny jeans have possibility to irritate the groin area over time. The tight-fitting waist can also put pressure on the bladder, and exacerbate an existing bladder infection. So, the people suffering from urinary tract infections are strictly warned against wearing tight bottoms.

NOTE: Wear something that can make you feel comfortable. Remember, it`s the most important thing: How do you feel!
