Of the 1 004 Britons who were polled, 57% of those who sleep in the nude said they were happy in their relationships, compared with 48% of those in pyjamas, 43% of nightie wearers and 38% of those in onesies.
The findings of the poll, conducted by Cotton USA, is considered to be good news for many, as research has found that four in ten people prefer to sleep naked – and almost half of those – 45% – over of 55s prefer going to bed bare.
In an article by Mail Online, interviewee Stephen McKensie, 33, from Portsmouth, and his wife, reported feeling more comfortable and relaxed sleeping in the nude.
“I have been sleeping in the nude for six years now and it’s so much more comfortable than wearing pyjamas or boxer shorts. My wife does it too, and we have never been happier. It helps you relax when you’re in bed.”
Stephanie Thiers-Ratcliffe, of Cotton USA, said: “There are many factors which can affect the success of a relationship. But one factor, which is often overlooked, is the bedroom environment. Bedding can feel extremely soft against the skin, encouraging openness and intimacy between couples and ultimately increasing happiness.”
The research also revealed our partner’s bedroom manners affect our happiness in relationships.
People eating in bed bother half of us, 59% of us detest dirty washing on the floor and 23% hate it when their partner wears socks in bed.
