WOMEN spend the equivalent of almost a month in every year worrying about their appearance.
Fretting about clothes, hair, weight, curves and skin takes up an average of 12 hours and four minutes a week, or 26 days per year, a study found.
Choosing what to wear occupies much of the time.
Typically, a wife or girlfriend takes 50 minutes a week picking her outfits – and another one hour and 32 minutes worrying if they look okay.
Life as a woman in the modern world is tricky, what with the constant need to be looking glamorous, attractive and thin. That constant need, of course, having been generated in part by articles such as these, placed helpfully into the Express and the Daily Mail by a manufacturer of slimwear:
Michele Duncan, spokeswoman for the study commissioned by Lycra Beauty owners Invista, said: “It’s surprising to think women are spending such a large amount of their time concerned about their appearance.
“Simple things such as choosing the right shape-wear can go a long way to alleviating those body shape concerns, leaving you to be able to get on with your day, worry-free.”
If you’re not worrying about your appearance, ladies, perhaps there’s something wrong with you, as you’re clearly not normal. And if you are worrying about your appearance, choosing the right undergarments can help you stop worrying, according to this entirely-unbiased company.
