The MRL Morning Show

Weekdays 6:00AM-9:00AM

You all know I LOVE to shop, but not everyone has the same experience when picking something up from the mall.

While there are some women who love to go shopping, there are others who dread it, and for those people the experience can be really terrifying.

A new poll by True&Co finds: Half of American women say they experience anxiety while shopping. 40% absolutely hate shopping for new clothes. 13% have actually started crying in the changing room because of their shopping struggles. 61% say they struggle to find an item in their size. And 43% felt so defeated they simply gave up and left the store. (Now that has happened to me on occasion)

The stress does vary depending on what women are buying. The most stressful item to shop for is a bra, and with good reason. I am pretty sure half of America doesn’t know their true bra size. Here are some other items women have a hard time shopping for:

  • Jeans (53%)
  • Swimsuits (52%)
  • Dress pants / slacks (40%)
  • Underwear (39%)
  • Lingerie (38%)
  • Dresses (37%)
  • Shoes (37%)
  • Blouses (36%)
  • Bodysuits (35%)
