As it turns out, a lady in Australia spent her Tuesday helping a relative move in to her new home. She wore a pair of jeans for the day’s task and they were of the skinny kind. You’d think everything was normal with the scenario but the hours of bending, lifting and squatting as she moved furniture and other belongings led the jeans to feel tighter as the day went by. Towards the end, her legs were swollen, circulation was cut off, and she couldn’t feel them anymore. She collapsed and had to have the jeans cut off her body as she was taken to the hospital. Several days on a drip and she’s finally walked out of her hospital bed. The doctors are now calling her an actual fashion victim and all this just because of a pair of jeans.
Here’s what I think. Wear your skinny jeans. Yes they are meant to be tight and give you shape. But the second you feel like you can’t bend your legs in them, that’s when you know you need a bigger size. What happened to this girl was extremely unfortunate but on the other hand, how many of you have stopped eating Maggi?
