Why Skinny Jeans Can Actually Send You to the Hospital

There's clearly been a decline in skinny-jeans popularity over the last few months. And as Elle pointed out from U.S. News & World Report, there's an actual medical reason for it.

After cutting the jeans off, the doctors found that the denim had caused severe muscle and nerve damage! So scary.
