Wearing tight or skinny wears, especially pencil jeans trousers, seems like the reigning style and, no doubt, many people are addicted to such style, including men and women, old and young. And as long as there are in fashion, there probably won't go away.

Meanwhile, as fashionable and 'fit' as tight wears are, coupled with the way they enhance people's smart outlook, scientists have said that wearing such skinny clothes comes with a price health-wise.


Pencil(skin-tight) jeans trousers leave little or no space between them and the skin, usually from the waist to the toes. Such butt-squeezing and thigh-hugging dresses could have painful side effects and cause nerve damage, numbness in the thigh, persistent abdominal pain, blood clot related problems and heartburn/belching.

Reports reveal that when the nerve that runs down the front of the thigh is compressed because of the tightness, it could lead to a condition called 'meralgia paresthetica', which is a disorder that occurs when too much pressure is on a nerve on the outer part of the thigh. The condition gets worse and the risk of having it gets higher in women if they wear skinny jeans with heels.

People who wear skinny jeans feel a numbness going down their leg because of the constriction. Their thigh then goes to sleep, and when they stand up, it feels like their feett is not under them. This is because of the sensory nerve that has been disturbed by the tight wear. The condition itself is not dangerous but if you keep having repeated episodes, it can cause permanent damage.

Apart from other health problems, putting on tight jeans could aid digestion difficulty. When you put pressure on the abdomen, your food does not digest properly especially for people who have 'reflux esophagitis', heart burn or chronic problems. Tight clothing can aggravate those problems.

Putting on tight jeans can also cause **twisted testicles, bladder weakness, urinary tract infections, fungal infections and even low sperm count. When you're wearing skin-tight jeans to make yourself skinny, that's not the point. Skinny jeans are meant to accentuate the way people look, not to make you look another way.
