get the skinnyAs if the trendy, snug-fitting pants weren’t hard enough to pull off, it turns out that skinnies may cause nerve damage. “Too-tight pants can put pressure on the nerve in the pelvis, causing painful burning and tingling in your thigh known as meralgia paresthetica,” says Orly Avitzur, M.D., M.B.A., a neurologist and medical advisor for Consumer Reports. “Fortunately, it won’t hurt the muscle or cause long-term damage, but it can be quite painful and interfere with quality of life.” So how do you know if your skinny jeans are too skinny? “If your pants are difficult to get into or move in or zip up, they may cause health problems,” says Avitzur.
