Yoga Pants More Popular Than Denim...Here's Why.

October 13, 2015 2 min read

Whether it's because American's waistlines are continuing to grow, or because fashion has finally become functional, denim sales are declining. In fact, they've dropped from $7 billion to under $5 billion in the past two decades, Bloomberg reports. Yoga pants are more popular than denim. Market researcher NPD Group even noted that last year was the first time in the history of US consumerism that athletic pants saw sales nearly equal to those of jeans. "As we saw ‘casualization’ continue even further, the customer basically told us that they had enough denim until something really unique and innovative came along… We really saw the denim industry and denim retailers basically turn their nose up on the customer and say, ‘We don’t care what you really want, we’re going to tell you what you want,'" Marshal Cohen, one of the group's analysts, told Bloomberg. To ensure fashion brands built on their denim sales don't fade out, they're adapting with activewear lines. Gap is among them. "My generation grew up wearing jeans — jeans are just a part of our life, and it still is but this generation is growing up in yoga pants and activewear. So I think it’s just going to be bigger and bigger and bigger for the future," Nancy Green, Gap’s Athleta executive said in an interview with Buzzfeed. "There’s activewear that’s only for performance and then there’s what we do, which is so much broader than just activewear — what we do could fill 80 percent of [a customer’s] closet. I think it could be huge." But other companies aren't giving in just yet. "There’s not another piece of apparel in the world — probably in the history of mankind — that has remained virtually unchanged and still provides function… The trick is to get a look like this on a very modern fabric — a fabric with a lot of stretch in it," Senior Director for technical innovation Bart Sights told Bloomberg, Have you given up on denim?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
