Skinny jeans not for squatting 023/06/2015

Skinny jeans are increasingly popular - but squatting in them can do serious damage to the legs, doctors warn today.
The conclusion comes from the experience of a woman of 35 in Australia, who wore the tight jeans during a day helping a relative move house.
The next day she turned up in hospital complaining of weakness in her ankles.
Doctors concluded she had suffered nerve and fibre damage in her legs.
The incident is reported in the journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry.
The doctors say the jeans reduced blood supply to the muscles, causing swelling and compression of nerves.
The woman needed four days treatment on an intravenous drip.
Researcher Professor Thomas Kimber, of Adelaide University, Australia, writes: "The present case represents a new neurological complication of wearing tight jeans."
