Wearing skinny jeans could actually cause bodily harm.

A woman collapsed and spent hours unable to move because she was wearing skinny jeans, medical experts have said.

The 35-year-old’s calves were so swollen that her jeans had to be cut off her.

Her story has now been published in the Journal of Neurology to raise awareness of the dangers of wearing tight clothes.

According to the authors of the report, who are based at the Royal Adelaide hospital, the woman was found to have damaged muscle and nerve fibres in her lower legs as a result of prolonged compression while squatting, which they believed had been exacerbated by her choice of trouser.

While doctors have recorded previous instances of lesions to the thigh nerves caused by wearing very tight trousers, the report’s authors note, “The present case represents a new neurological complication of wearing tight jeans.”
