BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) -- There's an old wives' tale that says pain is the price of beauty.
Between high heels, plucking eyebrows and constricting garments, many ladies understand that saying pretty well.
Some of the most popular female fashion staples can create real health issues down the road.
Skinny jeans, for instance, can cause some issues.
They fit tightly and taper at the ankle.
The jeans could cause a condition that compresses the nerves in the lateral thighs, causing pain, tingling and numbness.
Ballet flats and flip-flops may seem better than heels, but they can lead to plantar fasciitis, which makes walking difficult and painful.
Another potential problem is caused by body shapers, such as Spankx.
They can increase pressure on the stomach, causing acid reflux.

The Birmingham Police Department is investigating a homicide that happened early Sunday morning on the 2000 block of Pearson Avenue Southwest.
In death, Nelson Mandela unified South Africans of all races and backgrounds Sunday on a day of prayer for the global statesman — from a vaulted cathedral with hymns and incense to a rural, hilltop church with goat-skin drums and barefoot dancing.
