Nobody wears heels because they think they're good for their feet. Or tight pants because they're just so comfortable.
But this gives a whole new meaning to "beauty is pain."
A column in The Wall Street Journal this week sheds light on the many surprising perils of apparel. That includes the potential for blocked nerves when wearing cinched belts or tight pants, reduced oxygen intake when wearing body shapers like Spanx, back pain from ill-fit bras, and bunions, hammer toes and bony heel protrusions as a result of long-term heel wear.
So, what? Should we all just stick to sports bras and maxi skirts and sensible sneakers? Now we're talking sexy.
