SheFinds News: When Attire Attacks
August 30, 2006
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 MSN.com 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.
Buy shoes that fit, it’s just a number. Prioritize when you wear the more painful pairs.
Use sole savers to provide cushioning.
Offender No. 2: Too-tight jeans, leotards and thongs
Crime: Causing yeast and vaginal infections, and chafing.
Wear 100% cotton underwear (or microfiber).
Avoid ill-fitting thongs or pants that â€œgive you a wedgyâ€ as that facilitates bacteria traveling from back to front â€œas if itâ€™s on an 8-lane superhighway.â€ Gross.
Offender No. 3: Bustiers and corsets
Crime: Guilty of causing bruises, lacerations, shortness of breath, etc.
Take a deep breath and move around, if you can’t…don’t wear it.
