Fashionable clothing is often a direct threat to human health, especially if it concerns high-heeled shoes or tight jeans. Naomi Braithwaite, an expert from Nottingham Trent University in the UK, has named 4 fashion trends, which can send us to a doctor.
Since 2010, the so-called jeggins are gaining popularity in the world. The name comes from blending the words ‘jeans’ and ‘leggings’. They are sometimes referred to as “the trend from hell” because of the not very comfortable design and because of what they do with the people whose figure is not that slim. Jeggins are already banned in schools because of the health problems they cause and because of their provocative look. These pants prevent the air flow in the groin, which has already led to a record surge in fungal infections.
Victorian style corsets, which once used to give the impression of a slender waist to the most shapeless women, are back in vogue. These are the clothes that adorned Scarlett O’Hara from “Gone with the Wind.” They are dangerous for women’s health, as they cause compression of the internal organs, especially in the abdominal area.
In 2012, Karl Lagerfeld’s showing hula-hoop Chanel handbags on the catwalk served as the beginning of a fancy for sizeless bags. Their average weight is more than 6 kg, which eventually leads to arthritis and shoulder disc displacement.
These are the shoes with high and thin metal heels. They contribute to the unnatural body position of the woman wearing them for a long time. Wearing them is associated with the occurrence of pain and degenerative diseases of the feet, including chronic damage to muscles and tendons.
