shopping: April 2011 Archives

275x250.jpgIf women really want an honest opinion about a potential new outfit, they take their mother out on their shopping spree, it has been found.

Researchers who polled 2,000 women discovered that many think  that shopping with girlfriends can be a minefield of jealousy, false compliments and complex mind games.

By contrast, mothers tend to be brutally honest if they don't like something and complimentary if they does - explaining why a third of women would rather shop with mom than anyone else.

Shopping with mothers was also found to be more focused and productive than an outing with pals who often waste time nattering.

And it seems fears of jealousy are well founded. One in 20 women admitted telling a friend they look great in something when they looked awful - because they didn't want them to look better than them.

Lakeside Shopping Centre in Essex gave the prizes to the first 100 women to turn up on Sunday morning in nothing but their bra, panties and high heels.

After getting the gift card the girls who had dared to bare were then encouraged to hit the shops and buy themselves a new outfit.

However, while women had already got a pair of hight heels on, a surprisingly high number of them headed straight for the shoe shops… which must have made their walk home interesting.
