A recent survey of 5,000 men and women by an online shopping site had some bad news about the hygiene habits of people in the UK.


Remember when WEB WATCH SAID THAT UNDERWEAR CONTAINS A 10th of a GRAM OF POOP?  You may want to revist that article after reading the rest of these stats…

  • More than 25% of the men in London don’t change their underwear daily
  • 16% of men will wear the same pair of underwear for three days… or more.  If you find that surprising, 4% of women have admitted to the same
  • 28% of both men and women are wearing underwear that’s at least five years old.  1.7 million respondents said that they were wearing 10-year-old underwear. 

(An aside – Web Watch will note that the phrase “10-year-old underwear” is using “10-year-old” as an adjective describing said underwear, not a description of said underwear’s owner. Get your mind out of the gutter, folks – this is a funny survey, not a creepy one.)

More underwear study results showed:

  • At 68%, the most popular reason for not throwing out old underwear was  that they were comfortable.  7% said they didn’t want to throw out those briefs due to “sentimental reasons”.  Web Watch will assume the latter were women – we can’t think of any man who gets that attached to their underwear.
  • 50% of the women said they wore mismatched bra and panty lingerie sets
  • 29% said that they would be turned off by seeing a new partner in ugly underthings

As for the types of old underwear the respondents said they wore:

  • 18% wore underwear that had turned grey
  • 17% wore holey underwear
  • 15% wore fraying underwear
  • 13% wore ill-fitting underwear
  • 9% admitted to still wearing underwear that featured cartoon characters.
