Women Wear 28 Outfits While On Week-Long Holiday
London: Women go packed up with up to 28 outfits to enjoy a holiday abroad - and one in 10 even manage to change seven times a day, a new study has revealed.
According to a new survey, woman will on an average change her clothes four times every day when enjoying a weeklong break.
But despite the huge number of wardrobe changes, eight out of ten women admitted that they still don't manage to wear everything they pack in their suitcase.
The study of 2,000 women revealed that 37 percent like to wear different outfits as the day goes on during their holiday.
For 58 percent, this may be for practical reasons as whatever they wore in the morning wasn't suitable for evening or night.
But one in 20 admitted they often changed their clothes several times a day just to ensure that they wore all of the items that they take with them.
Almost a quarter of the fashion conscious women polled also said that their constant clothes swapping was noticed by their partner or travelling companion.
And more than one in ten even admitted their outfit changes had caused tiffs while they were away.
The study also revealed that the average suitcase for a holiday abroad would contain four dresses, six tops and four pairs of shorts or skirts.
Two pairs of trousers or jeans are also packed, along with three bikinis or swimsuits, three pairs of flip flops or sandals and two other pairs of shoes.
But women will also purchase another two items of clothing or shoes to add to their wardrobe while they are away.
Researchers also found that the average woman will actually be able to wear just two thirds of what they pack, with one in ten admitting they use just a quarter of the clothes they take away.
Almost a quarter even admitted that most of what they take with them goes back home unworn.
And one in five said that they take so much with them on holiday, they often go over their baggage allowance when flying abroad.
"Unlike the typical day at home, which can involve an outfit for work or for popping to the shops, an average day on holiday can consist of several different activities," the Daily Mail quoted Bernadette Lusher from F and F clothing at Tesco, which commissioned the research, as saying.
"Each needs a different outfit - a bikini by the pool, shorts for walking around the shops and then a chic maxi dress for an evening meal. This can make packing a nightmare, especially if you are travelling by plane and can only carry a certain amount of luggage.
"The trick is to make sure you plan your clothes rather than just chucking the entire contents of your wardrobe into your case. Packing some staple items, along with some accessories can give you several different outfits without the bulging suitcase," Lusher added.
