While girls in North Britain may be famed for the skimpy outfits on their night out, it seems it is their Southern counterparts who are more relaxed when it comes to bedroom attire.
According to a new research, girls down South wear far skimpier clothes in bed at night, with 73 percent of females in London sleeping in just their underwear or nude, the Daily Mail reported.
And the further north you go, the more likely you'll find women covering up in flannel pyjama bottoms and long-sleeved tops, something researchers put down to the colder weather.
Sharon Webb, head of lingerie buying and design at Debenhams, who carried out the survey, said: "From barely-there sleepwear to bananas-in-pyjamas attire, there is a strong connection between what you wear to bed and where you live."
"Sleepwear is likely to be bought on impulse, but buying behaviour suggests that the further south you go, less is worn to bed.
"Pyjama parties in the south may be a little bit more revealing than those in the north, with the sauciest sleepers living in the South West," she added.
In the South West - especially Devon, which has the second highest number of over 50s in England - short, thin-strapped, loose-fitting nightgowns and skimpy sleepwear are the most popular choices.
In the north, 87 percent of women said they preferred a comfy set of flannel pyjama and soft slippers while ladies of the Midlands favour shorts and vest combos.
