Is this really true? Women spend nearly one year deciding what to wear


Women will spend almost one year of their lives deciding what to wear, a study found.
The average female will spend 287 days rifling through their wardrobe
Choosing outfits for work, nights out, dinner parties, holidays, gym and other activities means the average female will spend 287 days rifling through their wardrobe.
The biggest chunk of that time is used up picking a killer ensemble for Friday or Saturday nights out or selecting the right clothes for a holiday.


My guess is men spend between 10% to 20% of the time women spend.

I think the Friday night/Saturday night statistic only applies to 18-30 yearolds. The rest of us who have lives to live are too busy, especially homeschool moms!!

That's because men often have their wives or daughters pick out clothes for them....

I agree with the Crimson Wife. I think we spend so much time planning or deciding what to wear because are doing it for the whole family.

Also, when we are bombarded with shows like "What Not To Wear" it gets a little trying to be a decently dressed female. Makes us self-conscious-like.
