The Daily Mail makes this statement like it’s a big surprise.
And I’ll bet the next statistics doesn’t surprise anyone either.
A new survey has found that eight out of ten women – that amounts to 20million across the UK – are hoarding millions of pieces of clothing that they can never wear.
And a deluded two thirds admitted they are keeping the clothes in the misguided beliefe they will one day again be able to wear them.
Deluded and misguided. That’s a bit harsh.
Given the fact I’m a walking average statistic, it won’t surprise you to know that I fit into the above data. Not sure about the deluded and misguided bit, but yes, I do have clothes ranging from a 10 to a 14, and yes, one day, I WILL fit into that 10 again. So it would be silly to chuck them out, wouldn’t it?
Here’s some more unsurprising info:
A quarter keep them (clothes) because they were so expensive they don’t feel they can part ways. One in eight deliberately bought some clothes too small in the hope of slimming to fit in to them – and never did – and more than one in ten also admit to holding on to clothes for sentimental reasons as the clothes remind them of a happy time in their life.
Oops. Me again. I wrote about it in a post about inspiration clothes. Inspiration, not desperation. Image
