Its July, summer is here and that means one thing – Holidays. With the holiday season in full swing, many are jetting off to beaches and other luxurious places to relax and unwind, and with some many women walking around looking fit in their bikinis and bodysuits, the pressure is on for every woman to have the Perfect Beach Body this summer. Many are coughing out as much as £300 in preparation for the summer holidays. Can you imagine that?
An online voucher code website – My Voucher Codes recently carried a survey that revealed that 60% of 18 – 24-year-old women felt under pressure to achieve the #PerfectBeachBody. The survey was answered by over a 1000 women aged over 18, and the results were as follows:
- The most popular beauty preparation women have for their summer holidays is waxing including eyebrows, legs and bikini area (59%), and manicure and pedicure (54%).
- A tummy tuck was the most popular choice for women looking to get their body in shape for summer.
- Joining a gym, a diet club and a fitness class were the most popular ways to get fit and healthy for the summer.
Mark Pearson, the founder of My Voucher Codes said:
“It’s amazing how much beauty treatments can cost for holiday prep, add this to the cost of a holiday and people can end up spending a fortune before that go. And that is not taking into account, gym membership, and fad diets or class’s people take to get their beach body. What is shocking though is the surgery women would consider having to get a beach body. There is so much pressure on women to have the perfect body, I can understand why some women resort to such extremes to get it.”

Personally, I don’t quite understand this whole perfect beach body craze. I can’t imagine coughing out anything close to £300 to achieve a perfect beach body, I rather spend that money on some cool accessories and pieces. However, I am more conscious of my legs during summer because I like showing off some skin, so I wax my legs more regularly in the summer months. Walking about in a mini skirt with hairy legs won’t be a pleasant sight, but that is all I do differently in the summer. Then again, I am not your average young woman. I hardly get pressured into doing anything. I make my own rules.
