Wholesale underwear can help retailers and households alike to keep their budgets in check during a climate of rising clothing prices.
Clothing – and underwear in particular – is an essential cost that must be met by all British households, and yet official figures show it is currently one of the most rapidly rising areas of expenditure.
The Office for National Statistics cites clothing alongside transport costs as the two major upward contributors towards inflation on the consumer prices index in May 2013.
Between April and May 2013, clothing prices rose by an average of 1.2%, while during the same period a year ago, they fell by 0.1%.
Wholesale underwear itself may have contributed in part to the rise, as unseasonably cold weather is likely to have driven customer demand higher at the retail point of sale.
However, the ONS notes that women’s outerwear drove the percentage increase higher than it might otherwise have been.
By purchasing the right choice of wholesale underwear, clothing retailers can help households to keep their outgoings manageable – while still driving a profit for themselves.
Our underwear wholesalers are able to advise you on the best options for your business, to ensure inflation does not unduly affect your bottom line.
