Or “Killer Fashion…”

For many of us, a little pain goes a long when to looking good. The sting of a wax, the poke of underwire are irritating but bearable. But we read about the Top 3 Fashion Killers from just to make sure we’re not causing any permanent damage.

Offender No. 1: High heels

Crime: Causing corns, bunions, blisters, hammer toes and permanent damage to knees, hips and back.

Crime-prevention Tips:

Buy shoes that fit, it’s just a number. Prioritize when you wear the more painful pairs.

Use sole savers to provide cushioning.

Buy fashionable flats or ‘comfort shoes’ be done with it!

Offender No. 2: Too-tight jeans, leotards and thongs

Crime: Causing yeast and vaginal infections, and chafing.

Crime-prevention Tips:

Wear 100% cotton underwear (or microfiber).

Avoid ill-fitting thongs or pants that “give you a wedgy” as that facilitates bacteria traveling from back to front “as if it’s on an 8-lane superhighway.” Gross.

Offender No. 3: Bustiers and corsets

Crime: Guilty of causing bruises, lacerations, shortness of breath, etc.

Crime-prevention Tips:

Take a deep breath and move around, if you can’t…don’t wear it.
