Skinny jeans may keep you trendy, but there's new evidence that wearing your denim too skinny may actually be dangerous!
Apparently skinny jeans have become the reason behind twisted testicles, bladder weakness and even urinary tract infections. Low sperm count and fungal infections are also being caused by the tight-fitting jeans.
Rappers like Lil Wayne and actors like Russell Brand have been wearing skinny jeans for quite some time, but now even people like Jay-Z, who famously claimed that he "can't wear skinny jeans cuz my knots don't fit," have hopped on the trend.
Dr. Hilary Jones, who is working with TENA on a project to highlight the dangers, said:
“I have seen several cases of men who have twisted their testicles due to wearing jeans that are far too tight. My advice would be to make sure you leave plenty of room around the groin area and that your pants and trousers feel comfortable so you’re not being restricted in any way. Wearing tight-fitting clothing over a prolonged period of time can lead to urinary tract infections leading to over-activity of the bladder - a type of bladder weakness as well as a low sperm count and fungal infections. Please don’t put style before health.”
Granted, all of these reports are for men wearing the jeans. So the real question is, how skinny is TOO skinny?
