SHEFFIELD has been identified as one of the top 10 cities in the UK where women in their middle years feel frumpiest and suffer the lowest self-esteem.

The city comes eighth in a poll of places where women have the most body hang-ups.

Women aged 40 to 50-plus dislike what they see in the mirror four times more than teenage girls, according to the survey, and a massive 92 per cent of those in their 50s admit to not liking how they look.

The most frumpy-feeling city in Britain was Edinburgh, followed by Cardiff, Plymouth, Glasgow, Manchester, Nottingham, London, Sheffield, Leeds and Birmingham.
