Tight clothes can cause a wide range of discomforts and even health issues. Tight pants are proven to constrict the abdomen and place pressure on the intestines. Another possible health issue is irritable bowel syndrome, which is characterized by cramping, abdominal pain, bloating and constipation, and even diarrhea.
When it comes to women, pants or jeans that are too tight can lead to fungal infections such as thrush. Experts have warned women not to wear control underwear in sizes too small for them as they can cause acid reflux and heartburn, and also make you need the toilet more often.
A neurologist from the Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Dr. Michael Li, stated that people who wear tight-fitting clothes suffer from “tight pants syndrome,” and they often experience abdominal discomfort, belching, and heartburn from wearing these types of clothes.
Experts recommend that you don’t have to wear over-sized clothes, just don’t go too tight, and never go under your actual size.
