Jeans that are too skinny-tight can lower sperm counts and have been linked with twisted testicles in men.
iPhone users may have been warned not to keep their new, ultraslim phone in the pocket of skinny jeans in case it bends – but wearing skinny jeans is bad for your health, too.
Jeans that are too skinny-tight can lower sperm counts and have been linked with twisted testicles in men. In both sexes, regularly wearing tight jeans can also promote urinary tract and fungal infections.
Doctors warn that tight legwear can compress the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve, which runs down your thigh and, like all other nerves, is there to register physical sensations like touch and pain. Constant pressure on this nerve can result in a condition known as meralgia paraesthetica, which causes numbness of the leg, stinging pain, over-sensitivity to heat and even muscle wasting.
If you simply can’t do without your skinnies, buy those with a little stretch to them and, if you feel pain or numbness in your legs, shift up a size—otherwise, you could develop permanent nerve damage.
