According to a study by the University of British Columbia, wearing your lover’s clothes can be beneficial for your mental health. Researches distributed three types of t-shirts among 96 women participants – the one worn by their partners for 24 hours, a stranger’s t-shirt and a neutral one.

Results showed that women who sniffed their boyfriends’ t-shirts had lower cortisol levels that mean lower levels of stress and anxiety. On the other hand, women who sniffed a stranger’s t-shirt showed higher levels of cortisol, reports The Guardian.

So, the next time your boyfriend rants about not returning his t-shirts and hoodies that you once borrowed, you can tell him you are doing it for your good health. * Wink wink *
