Sometimes looking great can lead to health problems. For example, jeans that are too tight can lead to vaginal skin irritation, pressure on your bladder or tingling thigh syndrome. These are rare, but tight jeans or booty shapes all contribute to yeast infections. One tip: Choose breathable fabrics and wash them well. Looking good doesn’t have to make you sick!
