While mum jeans might be all the rage, many of us still prefer to style our t-shirts and jumpers with a pair of skinny jeans.
But it turns out you really shouldn’t be wearing these kind of tight trousers too often.
Despite the fact that they make your legs look incredible, they are likely to be doing more damage than good.
This is according to a medical professional, who has explained how items of clothing, such as skinny jeans, can actually harm your vagina.
Kent-based aesthetic physician, Dr Shirin Lakhani has revealed the simple everyday things that could be irritating your private parts.
She says that wearing tight or synthetic clothing can restrict the flow and circulation of air around the area and stop your vagina from ‘breathing’.
Speaking to MailOnline, she said: “It’s important to give that area room to breathe.
“Wearing tight or synthetic clothing such as leggings, skinny jeans, gym clothing and swimming costumes, can create an environment where problems are much more likely to develop.”
These problems can include yeast infections such as thrush, she adds.
Thrush is a common infection that can be rather uncomfortable.
Symptoms include itching and irritation around the vagina, white, cottage cheese-like discharge and soreness when urinating or having sex.
As well as thrush, your clothing choice could also cause your vagina to become inflamed and painful, if the material is rubbing and putting pressure on the area.
So instead of slipping into your skinny jeans all the time then, it might then be worth swapping them out every so often for a floaty skirt or dress.
But if that’s not something you’d feel comfortable leaving the house in, opt for a pair of trousers that are less constrictive.
As well as this important health message, women have also recently been warned by a nurse not to vacuum their period.
In a viral tweet, which has since been deleted, a nurse claimed two young women had been admitted to hospital after attempting to use a hoover to stop their bleeding early.
She wrote: “Ladies… Please stop using your vacuum hose to end your period early. You’re gonna wind up sucking out a lot more than blood!
“There were two cases of this so far this week and both women had to be admitted. Just STOP!”
She later added: “I don’t know if it was Eureka, Dyson, Hoover or some Walmart brand, but yes an actual vacuum cleaner.
“Your period has a steady flow of its own that for all intents and purposes your body can tolerate. A vacuum increases the flow over 1,000 times which your body can’t tolerate, therefore sending you into shock.”
