Why your clothes are worse than they were 10 years ago

For Vox, Izzie Ramirez details how the design process of products has changed so drastically by way of a 10-year-old bra she had hoped to replace. When Ramirez went to re-purchase her favorite bra, the quality was not as good as it had been a decade ago, due to “new design norms, shifting consumer expectations and emboldened trend cycles,” she explains. The decline in quality can be traced back to underpaid and overworked workers who are expected to produce products faster than ever before, a concept that typically ends up sacrificing quality. In tandem with the ever-growing demand for micro-trends, companies feel the need to put out new clothes every day, once again sacrificing quality for speed. {Vox}
