Health problems caused by wearing tight clothing

Likewise, changing our shoes several times during the day can be of great help so that our feet feel more relaxed and that will bring a benefit to the health of the whole body. Below you can learn about some of the problems caused by wearing very tight clothing.

1. Affects blood circulation

Tightly fitting clothing can make it difficult for blood to circulate normally , causing it to spend a lot of time in the lower extremities. This pressure on the legs and abdominal area can be dangerous , since it can cause swelling, among other complications in the leg and buttock area .

2. Poor digestion

Tight pants and belts can make digestion difficult . After eating, your stomach dilates, and the pressure in this area can cause certain stomach acids to flow into your stomach, causing heartburn and reflux.

3. Back pain

Wearing tight pants and shirts can prevent your body from relaxing and as a result, cause back pain . If you start wearing baggy clothes for just a couple of days, you can tell the difference. And it is that when you wear tight clothes, the muscles are overloaded, causing your vertebrae to strain more than necessary. In addition, having hips compressed your spine loses support.

4. Varicose veins

Wearing clothes very tight to the legs can facilitate the appearance of varicose veins , due to the pressure exerted on the area.

5. Cellulite

Although tight clothing itself is not the cause of cellulite, this practice could delay the positive effects of a treatment to combat it and thus favor its appearance, causing a case of grade 1 cellulite to become grade 2.

6. Diseases in the genitals

The humidity and high temperatures caused by tight clothing in the genital area can favor the development of fungi and bacteria . But this risk is not only for women, for men it can cause alterations in the quantity and quality of sperm and even cause pain in the testicles.

7. Breathing problems

Clothing that is too tight to the body could block the passage of oxygen through the body . For example, it can make your breath reach only the upper part of the thorax. In this way, gas exchanges are not carried out efficiently and your body begins to accumulate more carbon dioxide, which accelerates the oxidation of cells and favors their aging.
