Women love to shop all the time. They are never satisfied with the clothes they have. They are always looking to keep up with the latest styles and fashions. They spend all their spare time shopping or at least window shopping.
Go to your local mall and you will see the amount of shops selling women’s clothing compared to all other consumer areas such as men and children’s clothing. There is really no comparison.
I have conducted a bit of my own research in a few popular malls. The Palisades Center in Rockland County, Kings Plaza in Brooklyn, NY and the Aventura Mall in Florida. In each of these three malls, the amount of women’s clothing stores greatly surpasses both the amount of men’s clothing stores, and the amount of children’s clothing stores.
In the Palisades Center Mall there are 41 different women’s clothing shops, while there are only 23 for men and 13 for children.
In the Kings Plaza there are 31 stores selling women’s clothing, 22 selling men’s, and 7 selling children’s. The Aventura Mall has 89 women’s clothing stores, 49 men’s stores and 21 children’s stores.
So what is the reason for this? Why do women shop so much?
Well, firstly because a woman always feels she needs to look good. She needs to be comfortable with what she is wearing. So much so, that even women who are not blessed with beauty will still feel the need to stand in front of the mirror for hours trying on all of her dresses and outfits until she feels satisfied with what she is wearing. Shopping for clothing gives women and girls a certain confidence. When they know they have so many beautiful articles of clothing, so many different options to choose from, they feel like they can really look good. To have very many outfits, and many pairs of shoes to work with, until they are satisfied that they are wearing the perfect ensemble.
Another reason women love to shop so much is because they feel they can not wear the same clothes too often. They need so many different sweaters, skirts and shoes, so that they will never end up wearing the same thing too often. Most women will never be seen wearing the same outfit to work more than once a month. You will also notice that women will never wear the same dress to more than one occasion.
A third reason women love to shop is because it is part of their inborn nature. Shopping is a women’s hobby. Just like almost all men enjoy sports, practically all women enjoy shopping. A woman can spend hours at the mall just to have a good time.
Women also shop because they love to have! All women love to have an abundance of anything they can. Clothing is no different.
Because of these reasons, and many others, the markets are flooded with fashion artists and products geared to women and women’s fashion. Even at the checkout counter in the supermarket, you will see dozens of fashion magazines and celebrity gossip magazines (because women want to know what the celebrities on Hollywood are wearing this season) ready to be grabbed and put into your shopping cart.
