Do high-waisted pants cause prolapse?
Have you heard the newest claim? That mom jeans can give you prolapse?
I know, I laughed when I heard it, too.
I’m not denying that some people might feel something like pressure when they wear high-waisted pants, but the why is where we’ve got it wrong.
They would have to be some SERIOUSLY TIGHT pants to actually make your organs squirt out.
Let’s just be honest here. We’re talking like Kim Kardashian Met Gala corset type tight, which is totally different from the jeans you got at The Gap or the leggings you got from LuLu.
If you’re wearing something tight and your brain is getting information and sensation down there, it doesn’t necessarily mean its cause or making a prolapse worse.
What we do know is the grade of prolapse isn’t correlated to the severity of the symptoms.
Some women aren’t even aware they have prolapse and they can literally have an organ hangin out.
It has something to do with the brain’s awareness of what’s going on locally.
Just because you notice something it doesn’t mean it’s progressing symptoms.
These blanket statements are harmful and the fearmongering doesn’t help anyone.
There may be something we need to explore further with those who have more prolapse sensations when they wear these garments. Or maybe they need a sizing chart. Or to check the setting on their dryers, because their pants are shrinking.
What do you think?
Tell me if you think high-waisted pants cause prolapse.
