Researchers quizzed 1,902 women from across the UK, and asked the ones who were married when they last allowed their husband to see them nude.
16 per cent claimed that they had not undressed in front of their partners during the last 12 months or more, the Courier Mail reported.
Almost half said that this was because they felt insecure about their appearance, while a third blamed a dip in their sex drive.
Around 40 percent said that their relationship had suffered as a result and 36 percent admitted that their constant attempt to cover up had caused rows.
Sarah Bailey, from online pharmacist UKMedix.com which commissioned the poll, said that body confidence is a huge element of women's sex life, and it seems a lack thereof is causing problems.
