There are some staggering numbers that have come out recently regarding the practice of wardrobing retail stores. One in six women admit to having purchased an item that they knew they were only going to wear one time.
It gets even worse. Of those women, one in eleven of them are wardrobing habitually. That means that this is a part of their day to day lives, and are probably one of the stores “best customers” since they are in all the time buying things. Ugh.
Special occasion items are one of the biggest victims of wardrobing. You have the fashionista that is desperately trying to keep up with the latest trends, the high school prom go-er who wants a beautiful dress, but can’t afford it, and the ladies of society who wouldn’t be caught dead wearing the same thing twice.
Whether through society’s pressure or simply an internal desire to be better than the next, wardrobing retail is a way to stay ahead of the curb. Many of these women will go to great lengths just to keep the merchandise in pristine condition so they can be assured of getting their full refund later.
Since so few retailers use wardrobing tags, it is easy to get away with. That just adds to these women’s ability to rationalize what they are doing and disregard that this is another form of refund fraud.
