Five fashion items that are bad for your health — and what to wear instead
5 fashion items that are bad for your health

Whether you tend to follow the trends or prefer to set them yourself, not all clothing is created equal when it comes to its impact on your health. While different items may make you feel stylish, sophisticated, and s3xy, it's important to pay attention to the various health risks that are associated with certain types of clothing, no matter how much of a fashion risk-taker you may be. 

 

We all know skinny jeans is bad for our health, but one ting we may not know is that they are not the only fashion item bad for us. There are some other body-damaging items in your wardrobe that you might want to replace 

The Culprit: Thong Underwear

Thong underwear is a popular choice for women today, not only in terms of a thong's sultry nature but also due to the fact that it eliminates the dreaded underwear lines that can result from wearing full-coverage undies, particularly with form-fitting outfits. And while the thought of putting on granny panties may be a less-than-appealing option, it's important to understand that there are actually health risks associated with wearing barely-there underwear. For instance, if you're someone who's prone to UTIs or other infections, wearing a thong can make the recovery process more difficult. Additionally, depending upon your activity level, the back part of your thong can have a tendency to slide forward and transfer bacteria to your v*gina. If that's not alarming enough, wearing thongs has also been associated with the development of haemorrhoids. So if you're looking for underwear that works for you and not against you, full-coverage underwear has got you covered in every respect.

The Solution: Seamless style with smooth cut edges

The Culprit: Jeggings

Aside from possibly cutting off circulation like their style sister, skinny jeans, jeggings also prevent air flow around your . . . lady parts, leading to unwanted health issues like a yeast infection.

The Solution: Wide-Leg or Flared Pants

Luckily, we're moving on trend-wise, and breathable flares are back — and equally as comfortable as those tight, stretchy things. Find a pair that suits your shape and rock this design instead.

The Culprit: Stilettos

Heels position your foot and body in an unnatural position, causing pain and discomfort — even costume designers advise against buying them.

The Solution: Flats

Or, at the very least, platforms or wedges for more support. They'll give you the height without the strain on your body.

The Culprit: Oversize Bags

Back problems, arm problems — lugging a heavy bag around can definitely cause some major damage. The worst part? You probably don't need half of this stuff!

The Solution: A Small Crossbody

Give your shoulders and arms a break and clean out your purse. Find a little crossbody that fits the necessities and you should be good

The Culprit: Heavy Jewellery

Earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings are becoming more and more enormous when you bedazzle yourself with these kinds of weighty accessories, a number of consequences may be heading your way. First, many of today's earrings are so heavy and large that women can end up inadvertently stretching or tearing their earlobes as a result. In fact, these giant earrings have a tendency to get hooked onto objects or even ripped out by unknowing children. To that end, heavy necklaces and chains can place a great deal of strain and pressure on your neck, back, and chest, and oversized bracelets and rings have been known to cause wrist, arm, hand, and finger pain.

Unless you're interested in going from the jewelry store to the doctor's office, it's in your best interest to accessorize with a smaller size.

The Solution: Smaller size jewellery
