Infidelity Survey Reveals Top 10 Stores Where Cheating Wives Shop
A new survey on unfaithful spouses reveals that wives who cheat spend more on shopping than faithful ones.
The poll, conducted by AshleyMadison.com, a dating website for extramarital affairs, found that cheating wives tend to shop at certain stores like Banana Republic, J. Crew, Macy's, Ann Taylor, H&M and bebe.
The website, which boasts around 52,390 female members, found that a third of survey respondents admitted spending double on their appearance after straying from their husbands, and 27 percent said they even have a secret credit card they use to pay for their secret purchases.
None of the stores on the list are particularly expensive. Researchers say this may be because cheating women spend more because they shop more frequently and not because they splurge on a few pricey items.
AshleyMadison.com CEO Noel Biderman told the Daily News that Banana Republic may be the top clothing brand for cheating wives because the brand's "business casual merchandise perfectly suits the busy working woman, juggling work and family."
As for lingerie, Victoria's Secret trumps all other underwear brands. The survey revealed that 69 percent of survey respondents say they shop at Victoria's Secret most often.
Biderman explained that there is often a link between infidelity and a sudden interest in appearance.
"Becoming more concerned with one's appearance is often a dead giveaway for an affair," he said. "If your spouse suddenly seems more consumed with style and putting outfits together after spending years in sweat pants, that is a telltale sign she could be two-timing."
