BRITISH women have more than£1billion of unworn clothing in their wardrobes.
Over 45.7million items are consigned to the back of the wardrobe because they have a bad fit or are the wrong size.
The average woman has four unworn items, with 58% blaming the fit of the item.
One in ten have ten or more items left hanging on the rail.
The survey also revealed that more than 87% said they needed to buy different sizes from different shops, with this figure rising to 93% for women over the age of 36.
Sizing confusion also means that many people are unsure about what their size actually is. Two thirds of women asked said that they believed their family or friends thought that they were fatter than they really are.
The survey of 1000 18-60 year olds was carried out by a Cheshire shopping centre.
