In a new survey, one in three Norwegians said they would have to renew their wardrobe after the corona pandemic. Home office and a lot of sitting are not a good combination.
Norwegians will spend billions on renewing their wardrobe after the pandemic, a new YouGov survey has found, newspaper Dagbladet reports.
In the survey – based on a representative sample of 1,008 Norwegians aged 18 to 75 years – the majority admitted that their body shape has changed through the pandemic.
“Out of the more than a million people who have put on weight since Norway was shut down, 73% say that they have to replace all or part of their wardrobe due to changes in body shape. We are talking about 870,000 people,” communications manager Øystein Andre Schmidt in Danske Bank told Børsen.
On average, these people plan to spend a little over NOK 3,600 on renewing their wardrobe, which surprises Schmidt.
“The estimate is a little startling. This means that we will spend NOK 3.1 billion on clothing as a result of the corona period,” he said.
