More People Are Buying Yoga Clothes Than Actually Doing Yoga
Do you or someone you know often wear yoga pants? A new report from the Wall Street Journal says that while the amount of people participating in yoga grew 4.5 percent in 2013, the actual sales of yoga clothing went up 45 percent. Apparently the trend also extends to other sportswear.
The “athleisure” market in the U.S. has increased about five percent annually and grown from a 54 billion dollar industry to a 68 billion dollar one. How do you feel about this trend? Should people wear clothing that implies they do a certain athletic activity even if they don’t participate?
