There is no denying the fact that Fashion is a wonderful thing that allows us to express ourselves through clothing. However, there are some trends that have proven to be straight up dangerous. You might not think fashion could be scary, but it is. Some fashion trends can cause legitimate health problems and even possibly kill you. Don’t believe me? Keep reading:
Heavy handbags can cause back and shoulder pain, headaches, elbow tendinitis, and more. This makes sense if you think about it because you’re putting weight on certain parts of your body on a daily basis but not in the right way. Some women have even had to get surgery because of injuries from their overly stuffed bags. Maybe it’s time to do a little handbag cleaning.
We reported recently of how a woman was hospitalised for four days because of her skinny jeans! Yup. This woman was helping her friend move and spent the day squatting and cleaning out cabinets in her skinnies. She later collapsed, was eventually found, and was taken to the hospital where doctors told her she had muscle damage, swelling, and nerve blockage. What?! Dr. Thomas Kimber explained, “I think it’s the non-stretchy nature of jeans that might be the problem.” That combined with the squatting caused the woman’s jeans to squeeze her legs to death. Moral of the story? Don’t wear tight skinny jeans while doing squats. At least make sure they’re stretchy.
It shouldn’t be a secret that heels are dangerous considering the fact that they hurt like hell to wear. But wearing high heels is definitely bad for your health. Rocking stilettos can lead to arthritis, trapped nerves, stress fractures, ingrown toenails, bunions, and more. Some foot injuries are severe enough to require surgery! Yikes.
Heels are obviously dangerous, but any pointy toed shoe will cause your feet damage as well. Your feet aren’t meant to be shoved into a triangular shape so forcing your toes into a small space can cause ingrown toenails, corns, bunions, hammertoe, and even numbness in your outer toes.
Dangly earrings are super cute, but are they worth it? Probably not because they’re causing an alarming amount of split earlobes, which is as unpleasant as it sounds. Heavy earrings can weigh down the thin skin on your ears to the point of literally splitting open, which has to be fixed with surgery.
