What do you wear to bed?

More and more of you are going to sleep naked!

In a bid to get a good night’s sleep over a third (34%) of British adults are slipping into their birthday suit every night before climbing in between the sheets.

Interestingly it is the over forties who are more prevalent to ‘Skinny Napping’ – sleeping in the nude - proving that life certainly does begin at the age of 40.

Findings revealed that a fifth of Britons in their mid forties admitted that sleeping in the nude made them feel liberated and helped them to get a good night’s sleep.

The UK’s  ‘Skinny Napping’ Index, conducted by Travelodge, surveyed 2,000 British adults to investigate what Britons are wearing to bed in order to get a good night’s sleep. Research findings revealed that over a third (35%) of British men like to sleep in the buff compared to just a quarter of women.

Men are so fond of ‘Skinny Napping’, that a fifth will regularly entice their partner to bare all with them.  

Yorkshire, home of the working men’s club culture, the industrial revolution and coal mining has been exposed as the UK’s ‘Skinny Napping Capital’ as three of the county’s cities dominate Britain’s top 10 listing of cities who like to reveal all under the covers.   

The first Yorkshire city in the ‘Skinny Napping’ league table is Leeds, the birthplace of loudmouth DJ Chris Moyles and home to Leeds Rhinos rugby league team. Nearly half of adults (45%) residing from Leeds revealed they sleep in the nude every night.

In second place is Steel City, Sheffield, also the location of the popular 1997 film ‘The Full Monty’ where six unemployed men performed a striptease in order to make some extra money after losing their jobs. Fifteen years on and Sheffielders are still performing ‘The Full Monty’ before getting into bed as a third of adults (33%) from the city admitted to naked napping.

Completing Yorkshire’s top three entries into the ‘Skinny Napping’ Index, is York where almost 40% of adults in the historical city bare all at bedtime.

Listed below is the top 10 list of cities baring all under the covers:

  1. Leeds
  2. Sheffield
  3. York
  4. Southampton
  5. Portsmouth
  6. Plymouth
  7. Cambridge
  8. Manchester
  9. Brighton
  10. Glasgow / Edinburgh
