A new poll by ShopSmart magazine, from the publisher of Consumer Reports, found that 65% of women struggle to find a suit that flatters. That sounds about right!
“Bathing suit shopping can definitely be daunting,” said Lisa Lee Freeman, editor-in-chief of ShopSmart. “According to our poll, the average woman owns 3 suits as compared to 7 pairs of jeans and 17 pairs of shoes. Bathing suit shopping is a more difficult process.”
Here are some more findings from their poll:
- Over 1/3 of women like the way they look in a swimsuit, whereas 40% are neutral and 18% dislike the way they look
- Tummy is the body part that gives 42% of women the most anxiety when shopping for a suit
- 42% of women struggle to find a suit with enough support, 31% can’t find enough coverage on top, and 30% can’t find the right suit for their rear
