British women have been labelled as Europe’s biggest holiday beach prudes in a poll.
Two-thirds of continentals believe that British women are the most likely to cover up rather than flaunt their bodies in swimwear. And,only 15 per cent of Britons rate themselves as stylish in a bikini,believing Italians look the best.
Nearly two-thirds of women aged 50-plus hate wearing swimwear,and even a third of 18-25 year olds dislike disrobing,the Europe-wide poll for retailer ‘isme.com’ found.
Germans were voted the least stylish by being too keen to go naked,the ‘Daily Express’ reported.
I’m not surprised women can take up to an hour to pick swimwear. It is a tricky garment to get right. But we can all take inspiration from glamorous older ladies like Helen Mirren and Kim Cattrall, said TV stylist Brix Smith-Start.
