Unlike the Duchess of Cambridge, just 14 percent of British women will go topless while sunbathing, a new survey has revealed

The main reason why they didn’t want to go without their bikini tops on was that they were not confident enough about their figures, the Daily Mail reported.

Six out of ten women polled said that they preferred to keep their bikini top on, as they felt they didn’t have a “perfect” body.

A further 54 percent of women polled said they would rather stay covered up, as they didn’t want any strangers to see them semi-naked, while 32 percent said they would not strip off if kids were present.

But 61 percent of women said they would go topless if they were lying on their front to prevent tanlines.

Only 6 percent of the women polled by dating site said that they would sunbathe fully topless in Britain, but would be much bolder if they were abroad, with 14 per cent saying that they would bare all in countries like Spain, Italy or France because of their liberal attitudes towards nudity.

However, just 2 percent of the women polled said that they would strip off fully on a nudist beach.

MissTravel polled 1,000 of its female members to find if they would dare to bare like the Duchess of Cambridge on their holiday and the reasons why they wanted to stay covered up.
