Women lying about their bra sizes

These days there is plenty of fantastic lingerie for women to choose from, but a study has found that many people lie about the size of their bras because of concerns they have about their size.

According to a study commissioned Eat Water, two thirds of ladies polled revealed they have lied about their weight, with nine pounds being the average amount they reduced their vital statistics by. Meanwhile, one in five women had pretended to be a stone lighter than they actually were.

And it was not only their weight that they fibbed about. Many women were also dishonest when it comes to their bra size, as well as their dress and shoe sizes.

The research found that one in six ladies even typed a lower weight into machines at the gym because they were embarrassed by entering the correct details.

It was revealed that most women wanted to be between eight and nine stone and to be a size ten in clothes, with a bra size of 34C.

Responding to the findings, Eat Water’s Vincent Lee said: “Most people will admit to telling the odd white lie about their body shape and weight but for women to be lying so frequently is a bit of a shame. Weight is such a tricky issue and everyone knows that it’s not always the best indicator of someone’s healthiness or size.”

Meanwhile, Mr Lee went on to remark: “Simply watching what you eat and making sure you don’t eat too many carbohydrates or calories and you have a balanced diet doesn’t have to be a chore.”

Thankfully, these days there is an impressive variety of lingerie for sale, meaning consumers should be able to find the ideal bras for them regardless of their shape or size. Finding the right bra can enhance their figures and help them look their best, as well as boosting their confidence.
