I know that I get back pain because I overload my giant handbag, and I carry it on one side. I also have terrible posture at work and sit over multiple computer screens. Those are just a few things that could be making you have pain.

Did you know the clothes you wear can also be a cause? #Mindblown

So what are some the clothing items that can be affecting your posture and giving you back issues? Well, if you've jumped on the skinny jean bandwagon, experts say they are one of the biggest contributors. How can you not jump on the skinny jean bandwagon? They look fabulous with everything from high boots to longer sweaters and shirts. 

Yes, the British Chiropractic Association is calling out skinny jeans! One of the leading chiropractors from the study said that skinny jeans "restrict free movement in areas such as the hips and knees, affecting the way we hold our bodies." 

So what are some other items that can also be causing harm? Big sweaters, jackets, heavy jewelry, high heels, and shoes without a back on them.

I better call the chiropractor now!
