British women shopping for themselves are increasingly opting for simple nude coloured underwear, a survey by laundry and cleaning business Dr. Beckmann has revealed.
According to the poll, 72 percent of women now opt for nude or flesh toned lingerie when shopping – preferring the simplicity to brighter colours, classic black or white, or fancy lacy sets.
According to TV psychologist Donna Dawson, this shift is women’s lingerie inclination is significant as the colour of a women’s bra reveals much more than it covers up.
Dr Dawson explains: “Colours at the warm end of the spectrum – red, orange and yellow – create feelings of excitement and vitality, and can actually raise your blood pressure, heartbeat and breathing rate.
“A nude or flesh-coloured bra denotes a personality that is natural, easy-going, down-to-earth and transparent. This woman is relaxed, with nothing to hide.
“A red bra denotes a personality that is passionate, energetic dramatic and driven. This woman is not shy about asking for what she wants. Her moodiness and need for drama are also part of her allure.
“A pink bra denotes a personality that is romantic and gentle and in need of affection. She is feminine, sensuous and would never take the lead.
“A black bra denotes a personality that is individualistic and powerful, as well as sultry. This woman has subtle charms and is deeply passionate.
“A white bra denotes a personality that is innocent but open-to-suggestion. A woman who opts for a white bra is usually a willing learner,” concludes Dr Dawson.
