8 Stylish Alternatives to Health-Damaging Fashions (That Are Overrated Anyway)

We all suffer for fashion. Sometimes physically, and sometimes emotionally. Just this past weekend I spent the remainder of my paycheck on a new coat just before the weekend, and couldn’t afford protein on my brunch the next day. The pain was real.

But did you know we’re also suffering in the name of being unfashionable? At least this seems to be the takeaway from a shocking new infographic revealing that bone-crushingly tight clothing is not the best for you.

6. Tight belts
7. Tight pants
8. High heels
