We realize that the stars of The Real Housewives of New York are under a lot of pressure to look good. The cameras are constantly following them, and millions of viewers are quick to judge their every move on Twitter — and sites like ours!

But who would have thought that it takes almost 200 outfits per Housewife to get through one season?

Both Aviva Drescher and Carole Radziwill admitted, separately, that they had to prep and coordinate just under that many ensembles so that they wouldn’t ever be caught wearing the same thing twice.

In the September 2012 issue of Glamour, where Carole works, the new Housewife admits, “I had to come up with approximately 180 different outfits over the course of filming, so I mixed and matched a lot and kept index cards of what I’d already worn.”

In an interview with The Fashion Dish, Aviva said, “I had to come up with about 160 outfits. Most of which you will never see. I got creative!”

Considering the fact that both of these ladies are arguably the best-dressed Housewives of all time, we applaud them. Next season, however, we urge them to take it easy!

The Real Housewives of New York airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
