Have you ever squeezed yourself into tightly fitted denim and wondered why you feel happy?
A survey by Qualtrics, a market research company, has concluded that skinny jeans actually have an effect on how content you are.
The results show that those who adopt a skinnier-leg look are actually more satisfied than their Boyfriend or Bootcut counterparts.
So basically... if you're ready to be revitalised, the flares have got to go.
Those who adopt the skin-tight fashion are nine percent more likely to report higher levels of happiness and twelve percent more likely to describe themselves as extremely confident.
Other findings from the study found that those who squeeze their way into their skinny denim are more likely to sit in the aisle seat of a plane and twice as likely to live in a bigger city like New York or Los Angeles.
Despite this denim discovery, fashion designer Lauren Conrad has decided to officially remove the word skinny from her range of jeans.
Starting this month, she will be banning any body shaming terms from her website, and replacing them with words like ‘healthy’, ‘fit’, and ‘toned’, according to a new blog post.
Conrad has also decided to ban “thin” and “slim” to keep in line with her theme of getting into shape and promoting a healthy body image.
