And we can thank Fifty Shades of Grey!
The erotic trilogy has inspired women to go out and get more “special occasion undies” which is upping the amount that women have!
Susan Fermor, a spokesperson for laundry specialist Dr. Beckmann, said:
“There have clearly been many contributory factors to the upsurge in the number of pairs of knickers owned by British women. And many put it down to this new era of female liberation we seem to be experiencing in the UK.”
According to a UK poll, women have 20 pair of everyday undies and 14 for those special times. 56 percent of these women also separate them into categories for special occasions and comfort.
Big, white granny panties are still the favorites of 58 percent of women.
In 1999, the average knickers number for women was 12, which means it’s nearly tripled.
It’s only a matter of time until ladies have 365 pair and only have to do laundry once a year!
