Spanx for Nothing: Should You Wear Them?
Meralgia paresthetica, the clinical name, usually shows up in pregnant or obese women. Some warning signs of suffering from "tight pants syndrome" are experiencing cramps outside of your period. Bloating and cramping can result from hampering the digestive system by compressing it with Spanx or other control garments. Numbness or tingling in the legs may signal a problem as well because too-tight clothing may inhibit circulation. Pass on the fad of tight-fitting compression garments built into fitness clothing. Companies like Under Armour sometimes build these snug pieces into their apparel under the guise that it improves performance - not so. There's nothing wrong with feeling like you can jump higher or run longer, but it shouldn't send you to the neurologist. Why not give those flared pants a try this spring?
