Obsessing with fashion and trends makes us run to buy trendy clothes regardless they are tight, long, short, or whatsoever. But do you know that wearing tight clothes pose serious health hazards? It may be in style, but the pressure these clothes put on your organs can lead to complications that can actually affect your quality of life. That is why here we are going to talk about the possible health problems you are exposed to as you wear tight clothes.
1. Breathing problems: You may have noticed that your tight clothes push into the abdomen, such that when you eat, it becomes really difficult to breathe. When you’re unable to fully expand your lungs breathing becomes shallow and oxygen intake decreases. You can faint as a result.
2. Acid Reflux: Wearing too tight pants or other clothes puts pressure on your abdomen and can interfere with proper functioning of the inferior esophageal sphincter, which is in charge of keeping stomach acid from reaching the esophagus and mouth. As a result, you get acid reflux, characterized by a burning sensation in the chest and throat.
3. Back Pain: Wearing clothes that restrict your movement, increases your risk of having back and neck pain because your muscles have to work harder. Tight clothes compress your nerves and increase inflammation, which translates into stiffness, pain, and tingling.
4. Vaginal Infection: For women, wearing tight clothes such as tight-fitting or nylon pants, ‘body magic,’ spandex or skinny jeans trousers makes the areas very warm and moist and that is the perfect environment for bacteria to grow. As a result, you may see changes in vaginal discharge and sometimes bad odors and itching. When this happens the vaginal area becomes very itchy, irritating and painful.
5. Cellulite: Wearing clothes that hug your body keeps cells from getting oxygenated properly and eventually contributes to cellulite. The reason is that it increases fluid retention and encourages the development of fat nodules in areas like your glutes and thighs.
6. Impeded blood circulation: Tight clothing can also impede the free-flowing circulation of blood within the body. This can lead to a host of health problems, including blood clotting, hypothermia, and numbness. Consistent poor blood circulation can result in high blood pressure, stroke, varicose veins, peripheral artery disease, heart disease, kidney damage, aneurysms, arteriosclerosis, Raynaud’s disease, phlebitis, fatigue, dizziness, memory loss, frequent and unexplained headaches, and swelling in affected body areas.
