275x250.jpg British women are hoarding 156 MILLION bras they don’t wear, it has been claimed.

Researchers found the average female has a collection of nine bras, but more than half of these are sat gathering dust in drawers.

Additionally nearly half of women own bras they have NEVER worn.

The biggest reason for discarded underwear was because women find their bras uncomfortable with a third keeping them despite being the wrong size.

Other reasons were that the bras were unflattering, unfashionable or made their breasts look funny under certain clothes.

275x250.jpg A study which used covert surveillance of car parks across Britain has found that women are better parkers than men.

After hiding cameras in a series of car parks, researchers spent a month looking at how well 2,500 men and women were at various aspects of parking.

They considered aspects such as technique, accuracy, time taken and space spotting ability to produce a 'parking coefficient' score out of 20.

And in a move which will undoubtedly cause arguments across the country women scored an average of 13.4, with men scoring just 12.3.

However, when questioned about their beliefs, only 18% of women say they are better parkers than men and only 28% believe they're better parkers than their partners.

275x250.jpgMillions of married women would rather spend time with their girlfriends than their husbands, a study has revealed.
 

Researchers found man women would prefer to spend a day off with their best friend because they were more fun, more likely to indulge in an exchange of gossip.
 
Shopping, going to a day spa, or having a meal and a glass of wine topped the list of activities women preferred to do in their spare time.

Nearly a third of 3,000 women polled agreed they think their girlfriends are much better company than their partner is.

And 60% of women say they prefer to go shopping with their girlfriends because they trust friends’ advice more… and don't have to pretend everything is cheap. 

275x250.jpgMen are now as worried as women about being ripped off by dodgy motor maintenance garages, it has been found.
 

Traditionally, women have been more intimidated when taking a car in for a service amid fears rogue traders will baffle them with car jargon and charge the earth for the work.
 
But research found men now suffer the same anxieties due to a lack of knowledge of what goes on beneath the bonnet.
 
The report also found millions of men struggle to identify where the screen wash is located, how to check the oil and change a light bulb.

And shockingly, one in five men didn't even know how to release the bonnet... we can't imagine why they'd be worried about being ripped off!

275x250.jpgThe average woman over-packs her holiday suitcase with 26 items which will never see the light of day, it has been found.

A detailed study of holiday habits found typically a woman needs 34 separate items for a week-long break -- but packs 60 “just in case”.

This means almost HALF of the contents of her suitcase will remain untouched for the entirety of their sunshine break.

Over-packing like this could explain why 58% women say they find it almost impossible to stay within their designated weight limit when going on holiday.

However, 77% of those polled say they like to pack extra items in case they can’t decide what to wear… meanwhile most men just take one pair of shorts and a couple of T-shirts.

275x250.jpg Women who are thinking about going under the knife can now get an instant boob job for free thanks to a new iPhone app.

The app is the brainchild of US plastic surgeon Elizabeth A. Kinsley, from New Orleans, who was the first doctor to employ 3D imaging technology to show women what they will look like after surgery.

Called iAugment, the app allows iPhone users to take a picture of themselves and virtually boost their cup size.

While it's intended for people considering plastic surgery themselves, we can imagine one or two blokes will be testing to see what their other half might look like with bigger breasts.

275x250.jpgEight out of ten women have flirted to get a discount in a store, it has been revealed.

A study of 3,000 shoppers discovered 80% of women have tried tossing their hair, holding eye contact and giggling while haggling over price, to get a good deal.

And more than half of the women who were polled said they'd even managed to get things completely free of charge because they flirted.

One in ten women were found to have flirted in the last month in a bid to get a few quid shaved off the price of goods - while men offer to pay in cash for a cheaper deal.

It was found that women who flirt in stores can save and average of £150 a year… and that's before you consider the free drinks they get bought.

275x250.jpgBritish women spend more money on their looks than they do on their health, a study has revealed.

The typical female forks out an average of £336 a year on hair products, make-up and fake tan in a bid to look young, but just £228 is spent on vitamins and gym membership.

And while three quarters enjoy spending cash on looking their best, just 41 percent say they like heading to the shops for healthy stuff.

The statistics emerged in study of 3,000 women aged between 18 and 65 who were quizzed on their spending habits and attitudes when faced with choosing between image or health.

Maybe that's because 56 percent said they could cover up the effects of a late night with make-up and going to the gym just sounds like hard word.

L-cup bra released for big-boobed women

275x250.jpgA company which specialises in making underwear for women with big boobs have launched the first L-cup sized bra.

Bravissimo say their super-sized L-cup bra has been developed because generously-endowed women can often struggle finding comfortable lingerie.

Apparently, devising a bra which offered the right level of support for L-cup breasts was so difficult it took 18 months to perfect.

It was added that 80% of women in the UK are currently wearing the wrong size bra and that the average woman has size 34E breasts.

It's not known what percentage of women require an L-cup bra… but if someone wants an investigative study conducting, you know where to find us.
