And more than one in three ladies claim they would never dress in underwear they'd worn with a previous lover. Around a fifth of women go a step further, ensuring their bed linen is untainted by the memories of a former lover.

Waxing is another essential - with 53% booking into a salon for a session. The results come from a survey of 1,000 women by lingerie brand Bluebella.
