I admit, I wasn’t expecting this:
Two-thirds of Millennials report sleeping in the nude, the poll by the mattress review site MattressAdvisor.com found.
Joe Mercurio, a project manager with Mattress Advisor, said he stumbled across several articles suggesting that people sleep better without clothes — and he decided to find out more.
He surveyed over 1,000 people across the country, 58 percent of whom said they sleep in the nude. Nude sleepers also report better sleep quality than pajama-wearers.
Not surprisingly, men are more likely to sleep naked than women — though more than half of women still report sleeping without any clothes. Only 39 percent of Boomers sleep in the buff, compared with nearly 65 percent of Millennials, the survey found.
Admission: When I first saw this overwhelming preference for sleeping nude by Millennials, I assumed it was due to the high cost of pajamas. (Not that I’d know, not having bought any since the 1960s.)
