Fungus is like the major toenail disease today, most especially for women. They often sneak between nail beds and causes the toenails to become dark, bumpy and can also lead to smell. Anyone can get a toenail fungus, although some people are at a higher risk of being affected.
Thus, here are three common causes of toenail fungus and how to prevent it and keep your feet healthy.
Tight and closed shoes can cause fungus, especially the shoes that are narrow in the toe box. Zinkin said “It can lead to injury to your toenails, which can weaken your nails and make them progressively helpless to a fungus infection”. If and when you have to wear closed-toe shoe, pick shoes that have plenty room or allow your feet to breathe without a pinch so as to allow air circulation.
We love nail polishes and always want a pretty toe but, nail polish can cause fungus. This is because heavy nail polish prevents light which creates a conducive environment for fungal growth. Hence, it is advisable to take a break from nail polishes from time to time. Also, note that fungus can be transmitted through nail files & clippers, so make certain that the tools are properly sanitised if going to a salon for pedicure.
Toenail fungus can be hereditary. So, it’s possible that your family might be prone to it or not. So, if you have a family history of fungal infection, you must take time to inspect your feet often and see a doctor if you suspect strange seeing.

- Perfect fit: Obviously everyone knows to get their perfect fit or not buy shoes that are too small but some people seem to forget, also buying shoes that are too big can not only make your feet uncomfortable it can be dangerous, if you buy a shoe that are too big and your legs are slipping out of it, you could fall or roll and sprain your ankles and you could really injure yourself so make sure you get the proper fit for your shoes.
- Short toe nails: Cut your toe nails as short as possible, this will help free up some space and you can have more room, that little quarter of a inch really does make a difference
- Stretches: Have you ever seen ladies walking around in heels and are obviously not used to walking in heels, their knees would be bent while they’re standing, its because their ankle isn’t adequately stretched. Its really important to stretch your legs out completely so your legs are straight when you’re wearing your high heels and also it will take less of a toll on your muscles since you use your muscles to walk in heels and if your knees aren’t completely straight then you’re going to be using different ones and you’ll get sore easily. To really stretch your ankle, you should have your toe, ankle and knee all together in one line, while you’re sitting, obviously it’s a process and not going to happen overnight, you do have to work at it, practice really does help.
- Stretch out your shoes: There are different ways to do this but this method is super easy and effective, take an ankle sock ( not too thick) and wear it, remember that you are not trying to stretch out the heel of your shoe, its important that the heel stay in place because you don’t want to be slipping out of them, so they have to be tight but you do wanna stretch out the toe box of the shoe. So double the ankle sock over your toes just to stretch out the toe box while leaving the heel area tight. When you first buy a pair of shoes it takes about three good wears to make it form more closely to your foot, so wearing a sock speeds up the process, you can do it at home while you are watching tv, cooking or cleaning but its really good to walk around in them, so when you finally need to wear them out, there will be plenty of space in it for your legs.
- Lubricate your foot: You can use a vaseline or a really slippery cream, apply to just your toe and not your heel, concentrate on your big toe and small toe. This prevents blisters and allows your foot to slide around in your shoes. Vaseline is good only for closed shoes and patent leather, not good on suede or open-toe shoes. You can also keep a tube ointment or oil in your purse so when the one you applied before wears out you can just squeeze some more in.

Not being able to find pretty shoes in your size because your feet are too big can be really annoying. You go to a store hoping they’ll have your size, but hey, they don’t and that can be a crashing disappointment every single time. If only these stores know that when you shop,the world gets better.
You can never borrow shoes from your friends because you don’t have same size as they do, and that can be really frustrating. The struggle for women who happen to have bigger feet seem to be endless. The most annoying problem is simply not finding a pair of shoes or better yet a pair of pretty shoes not in your size. Even when you shop online, bigger size are considered “special sizes” ugh!
To find affordable, trendy styles is a huge struggle for women who wear extended sizes. So if you don’t know what your size is, you can have your feet measured. It doesn’t take so much energy to do that. Finding the perfect shoe is hard. Big feet have many various personalities and just because your feet are bigger, doesn’t necessarily mean they’re wider. When you find a shoe, they’re usually true to size, which means no matter the style they’ll fit the same way across the board, and even though you might find yourself spending a pretty penny on them, you know they were made well and therefore will last you many, many wears.
So don’t bum out about the selection available to you. You never know when you’ll get another. If you search specifically for wide-fit shoes online, there are hundreds of shops globally that offer wide/extra-wide selections.

If you wear a size 10 or larger shoe, you have probably experienced challenges in finding styles that will fit your feet. Shoe stores will often carry a very limited supply of large size women shoes, and often styles need to be special ordered. Department stores generally do not carry sizes larger than 11. However, retailers are slowly coming to the realization that women’s feet are getting bigger. Soon, the quest for large size women shoes may be a distant memory.
In the past, shoe buyers were reluctant to buy big inventories of larger shoe sizes. This made sense as the average woman was a size 6 or 7. Women with larger feet were forced to choose from a few unflattering styles if there was any availability at all.
These days, large size women shoes sell quickly. The most commonly purchased size is now an 8 1/2, and over 30 percent of women are buying shoes in a size 9 or above. Because of the demand, retailers are scrambling to fill their racks with shoes sized up to 14.
Along with the retailers, shoe manufacturers are paying attention to the growing size of women’s feet. High-end shoe designers, such as Jimmy Choo and Manolo Blahnik are creating their styles in sizes up to 12, and sometimes higher.
The online retailers have taken this trend to a new level by developing virtual stores that completely cater to large size shoes. A woman can now choose from hundreds of styles that are readily available in her size. Along with being able to shop from the comfort of home, many of these online retailers offer top notch customer service, free shipping, and lower prices than those at traditional stores.
This new availability is certainly a welcome relief for every woman who has struggled to find a pair of flattering, large size shoes. While once the selection of sizes 9 through 14 was a few orthopedic looking styles on a shoe rack in a department store, now the choices are plenty.
The development of the large shoe market seems to grow every day. Retailers and manufacturers know that there is money to be made in big shoes, and they will be increasing the number of styles available because of demand. So, the quest for large size shoes may soon be over, and women with big feet will be the winners in this fashion battle.[ad_2]

The appearance of wedding trains can be regarded as a significant breakthrough in wedding dress history. Looking back, you will be surprised by the beauty of Lady Diana Spencer who put on a wedding dress with a train on her big day. However, when things come to your realistic world, maybe you will hold a different point of view on the same thing. When we talk about whether a train should be added on wedding gowns, different opinions occurs. On one hand, the train on the wedding dress increases bride’s glamor. On the other hand, the train could be a trouble for the bride to move freely. Here, it’s hard to say whether wedding dresses with trains fit everyone.
First thing you should make clear is the type of train. In terms of length, the train can be classified into four categories. The first is royal train whose length fits royal wedding. Even the contemporary royal families adore the traditional royal train for wedding dresses. The second is cathedral length train. This kind of wedding dress train is another fabulous option for formal weddings. The train is about seven or eight feet from the waist. The third one is the chapel length train which is the most common train on our list. Wedding gown with chapel length train is the best choice for a semi-formal and informal wedding. The last kind of train is sweeping length which is also called brush train. Sweeping length bridal gown is a perfect alternative for the bride who wants to charm the crowd.
Then you can make a choice and decide which kind of trains fits you most. That is a simple matter. You can make a decision based on your wedding style. If you hold a formal wedding, cathedral length would work best to accentuate the solemn air. If you are the one who seeks after moderate elegance and freedom, bridal dresses with sweep length trains will be your perfect option.
Neverheless, if you are a naturalist or an environmentalist, none of the four types of train above fit you. It is a common sense that when you wear a wedding gown with train, the lawn under your wedding train will be damaged by every step you take. What’s more, if you hold your wedding ceremony on the beach, the dirt may stain your wedding dress train. Here, the bridal dresses with no train would help you to have a natural and environmental wedding ceremony.
From my personal perspective, wedding dresses with train are not suitable for everyone and every style of wedding. Therefore, when you buy a dress for your wedding, whether a train is needed should be taken into consideration.[ad_2]
