Sacrificing Health for Fashion: Why Skinny Jeans Are Dangerous

June 24, 2015 1 min read

An Australian woman recently made headlines after being hospitalized for losing blood flow in her legs. The woman had become weak and collapsed in the street. She had to crawl to a cab to get to the emergency room. The cause of her condition? Skinny jeans.

Skinny jeans can restrict blood supply from reaching vital muscles in the legs, and cause pain, swelling and damage. While the woman recovered after a four day hospital stay, long term effects of skinny jean wearing could be potentially more concerning.

Doing certain movements like bending, kneeling and squatting can increase the risk of circulation problems when wearing tight pants. Choosing more breathable, stretchable garments obviously are recommended for working out or doing any sort of physical activity.

Sitting for expended periods of time in skinnies can also be hazardous. So remember to get up and move if you're stationed at your desk or driving for a long period of time. Again, choosing more practical pants make sense for these kinds of situations as well.

If you love the look of skinnies, then try choosing a pair with a little spandex in the material to give you a little stretch without losing that tight look. Or try going up a size to give you more movability.

Are you a skinny jean fan or prefer a regular fit? What are some fashion victim horror stories you have? Share them with us!

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies such as ours are Essential Services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
