Not to scare you but the truth is scary sometimes and in this case, it hurts a great deal. Some items in your wardrobe especially most that you wear on a daily basis, may cause you a number of health problem in the future and when speaking of health, it is not something simple as the flu.
Before I scare you out of your clothes by mentioning the health, know what items these are and what you can do to live longer and better, literally!
The power of the high heel
Famous actress Marilyn Monroe said “I don’t know who invented high heels but all women owe him a lot”, the statement has a lot of truth in it as nothing makes you fell sexy and lifts your curves just the way you desire them to be like a good pair of high heels.
However many women have taken this a tad too far and have nothing else but high heels for shoes. Everything should be in small portions and the same applies for high heels. To avoid high heels landing you in a wheel chair, you should observe the following:
- Do not wear them daily and alternate them with some good sneaker, sandals and flats.
- Get heels that are soft on the inside to avoid feeling pain and getting corns.
- Get several sizes of high heels to give your feet adjustments. Do not have them all in six inches
- Make heels for occasion not everyday wear.
- The size of the heel goes with your weight and height. Do not strain yourself stick to medium heels.
Too tight jeans
The worst thing you can tell a woman is that she is fat. This has sent many women trying to wear ill-fitting clothing in an attempt to hide some weight. The number one culprit is tight jeans that pinch your thighs.
You can hardly get out of them and do not even remember how you got into them. Your jeans should be fitting and avoid those that have the belt line just above your pelvic and you have to push your stomach in, to close the button.
The effect of wearing jeans that are low rise and too tight is that you will find yourself at the neurologists due to compressing a nerve in the thigh region known as Lateral Femoral Cutaneous. The solution is to get all of your jeans in a fitting size. If your shape gives, you problems, and you end up with jeans fitting at the thighs and bum but large at the waist, you would rather get it fixed at the tailors than your nerves at the neurologists. The tailor will not give you any medicines and is a cheaper option.
The convenient thong
With trends in fashion, many women will argue that thongs are a necessity. Although they do prevent many fashion embarrassments they could cause other embarrassment in your nether regions. The constant rubbing of the often-synthetic material against your labia causes both yeast and urinary tract infections. It pushes up bacteria that cause infections and if not diagnosed and treated early it can cause you complications later on.
The best option if to go for quality seamless panties that show no lines and feel comfortable with all clothing regardless of style or material.
The practical handbag
The handbag is one accessory every woman will argue they cannot do without. Some have over 10 different types of handbags for every occasion. The number of the handbag is not the issue but the type is what matters. You have that handbag known as the multipurpose practical bag that accompanies you everywhere. It can house a laptop, charger, sets of keys lunch dish, extra sweater incase it gets chilly a full makeup set, an umbrella and many other items.

As an experiment, take your bag and weigh it. Most women carry almost 5 kgs on their shoulders every single day. You are damaging your spine, shoulders and back in the process. Keep only essentials in your bag and stay away from those with excessively long straps. During the day, change shoulders while carrying the handbag and avoid carrying the bag on your shoulders if you will be walking for quite a distance.
