Skinny Jeans Can Cause Severe Nerve Damage

Recently we told you some good news about skinny jeans.

"According to a new survey by Qualtrics, a market research company, skinny jean wearers are actually happier than their boyfriend, bootcut, or even flare wearing counterparts."

Well, now reports say they may also be harmful to your health.

The Associated Press reports a 35-year-old woman in Australia was admitted to the hospital for four days because of muscle damage and nerve blockage in her legs. She reportedly fell victim to the fashion trend while helping a friend move. The several hours of squatting caused her jeans to grow tighter and her feet to become numb.

Fortunately the woman made it out of the hospital with just a little bit of weakness in her legs. Her pants didn't make it back with her. Probably for the best.

Doctors published a report about her case online Monday, explaining tight jeans may reduce blood supply to the calves and thighs, resulting in some not so sexy legs.

To avoid a trip to the hospital and still look good -- doctors recommend getting pants with more elasticity.
