Report Summary

“Today’s consumers have reached a consensus on wearing loungewear at home, and their consideration of a product’s basic value has become more multifaceted. Brands need to take into account consumers’ real demands in order to provide products that truly meet their needs. The demand for ‘treating yourself’ and gifting occasions also provides trade-up opportunities in the loungewear/nightwear category. Consumer preferences for varied styles of loungewear and nightwear, along with men’s appetite for traditional Chinese-style loungewear, open up new avenues for brands to expand their range of styles and customer base. Furthermore, the close link between loungewear/nightwear and consumers’ emotions suggests that brands can offer a variety of activities to relax consumers’ minds and bodies alike.”
