In 2015, a woman was cut out of her jeans after her calves swelled to the size of balloons.

She had been helping a friend move, squatting for hours in tight jeans.

Doctors say the pressure caused nerve blockages in her legs.

They recommend not staying in one position for an extended period of time.

Medics have reported many cases of numb thighs from wearing tight denim.

And the dangers don't just affect women.

Skinny jeans can lead to bladder weakness and twisted testicles in men.

So consider trading in your skinny denim for a baggier pair instead.
