42-YEAR-OLD Donna Sheridan still fits into her old skinny jeans apart from being unable to inhale or to feel anything in her legs.
Mother-of-two Sheridan said: “I’ve had these jeans for years now and they still slip on relatively easily, after only an hour or so of violent yanking in a shoulder-stand position.
“My feet are a bit tingly and swollen and I can only move by keeping my legs dead straight and swinging my hips, but otherwise I’m good to go.
“They’re so comfortable. They give me the relaxed, casual feeling of a massive snake swallowing my lower body.”
Doctors have warned about the dangers of excessively tight legwear, suggesting that skinny jeans should carry a warning label explaining one of the basic laws of physics.
Professor Henry Brubaker of the Institute for Studies said: “We just need a little tag saying something like ‘things do not fit inside things that are smaller than themselves’, possibly with a picture of a water buffalo failing to get into a Ford Ka.
“They are particularly unsuitable for men with legs the shape of men’s legs.”
