MIAMI (CBSMiami) – We’ve all heard the cliché ‘beauty is pain,’ but one woman’s skinny jeans brought-on more pain than she probably bargained for.

A 35-year-old Australian woman, while helping a family member move, noticed her skinny jeans had felt increasingly tight and uncomfortable during the day, according to the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, & Psychiatry.

Later in the evening the woman was walking home and noticed foot numbness which caused her to trip and fall. The woman reportedly spent several hours on the ground before she was found.

The woman’s lower legs were worse on the right side and her jeans could not be removed and had to be cut off.

The woman suffered severe weakness of ankle and toe movements and nerve damage as a result of squatting in the skinny jeans, according to the journal. Her feet were warm and swollen.
