Corrective compression garments can seriously harm women’s health. Gastroenterologist John Kuemmerle, dermatologist Maryann Mikhail, and chiropractor Karen Erickson believe that this underwear provokes the appearance of acid reflux, heartburn, and incontinence. The development of skin infections cannot be excluded as well. This is what The Daily Mail tells about.
Such garments compress the intestines and stomach. Because of this, one may face the problems with digestion. Apart from heartburn, fans of slimming lingerie can face the risk that their intestine will lose the ability to push food normally. The result is pain, flatulence, and bloating. Remember that this type of underwear is strictly forbidden for the patients suffering from irritable bowel syndrome. The appearance of acid reflux in the long term provokes the appearance of ulcers and cancer.
Because of the increase in internal pressure there can be cases of incontinence. In addition, the majority of women try to go to the restroom less often because slimming lingerie is difficult to put off. The disadvantages include the fact that slimming high shorts do not allow the diaphragm to descend completely during breathing. This can provoke panic attacks and hyperventilation.
When you have to sit in this type of underwear, peripheral nerves in the legs are pressed. This may lead to the appearance of pain and numbness in the legs. When you need to wear this lingerie for a long time, there may appear clots, swelling of the ankles and varicose veins. Regarding the development of the infection, the risk is increased due to the peculiarities of the material. The fabric retains moisture, and warm and humid environment is excellent for bacteria and fungi to breed. The experts consider folliculitis a frequent problem. In particular, this applies to fat people.
