A British study found that when it comes to enquiring which dress actually suits them the most during shopping, women find their mothers being the best individuals around.
The study found to get a sincere reply to the tricky question "does my bum look big in this?" is much more likely to be answered honestly by mothers, not a partner or even a best friend, Daily Mail reported.
About 70 percent of the 2,000 women polled, said their mothers would tell them the best whether an outfit they tried on suit them or not properly. By contrast, husbands and boyfriends were the worst to shop with.
The study was commissioned by The Chimes shopping centre in Uxbridge, West London.
