Two thirds of women admit to trying to change their partner's appearance, according to a new survey.

The UK poll also found that it takes around 192 days for women to successfully turn their partner into Mr. Right.

The poll revealed that clothing choice, hair style and smell were the top reasons women gave for being embarrassed to stand next to their partner.

Forty-eight percent of women said they bought clothes for their partner, with the average woman buying 21 items and spending $800 a year for their boyfriend.
