Christmas has been voted the sexiest time of year with women becoming more playful in the bedroom when it comes to their outfit choices.
Sexy lingerie is nothing new, but since the rise in the Fifty Shades of Grey phenomenon it seems that women want to make the extra effort when it comes to sex.
In order to do this, women are seeking saucy lingerie to surprise their other half’s with and sales have shot through the roof in the last month alone.
MyVoucherCodes.co.uk found that sexy lingerie sales have risen by a massive 263 per cent in the last month alone!
According to site statistics, search terms relating to ‘sexy lingerie’ and ‘sexy costumes’ have risen by 512% in the month of November; when compared to the average monthly number of searches made throughout 2012.
Surprisingly, it isn’t the typical French maid outfit that is flying off the shelves; the most popular outfit has been the ‘sexy elf’ costume, which proves that shoppers are really getting into the Christmas spirit.
The site wanted to find out how many of us actually do dress up in the bedroom and they found that a third of British women like to dress up.
Out of those women 67 per cent said that they would only dress up on special occasions.
Just under half said that they would dress up for Christmas, with 44 per cent saying Valentine’s Day was a must and 38 per cent said they would for their partner’s birthday.
When asked how sexy costumes made them feel in the bedroom, the vast majority, 81 per cent, of these women claimed that it made them feel ‘more confident’.
Mark Pearson, Chairman of MyVoucherCodes.co.uk, said, “We’ve seen such a huge rise in both searches and sales of sexy bedroom items over the past month, and given that the vast majority of outfits sold have been Christmas-related, it’s clear that people are planning on having an xxx-mas!”
“Whatever your choice of outfit in the bedroom, it makes sense to save money on them if you can. Check out what discounts are available before you buy, as some of the more elaborate ones can set you back a hefty chunk of cash!”
