UNDER ARMOUR

Reducing size-based returns through providing a better online fit and customer experience in Japan.

27% Year-on-year reduction in return rate due to size

*Total period: Oct-Dec 2022 vs Oct-Dec 2023 *Total number of items returned in Oct-Dec 2023 / Oct-Dec 2022 Total number of items returned in October-December 2023 / Total number of items returned in October-December 2022

Under Armour, founded in 1996, is an American sportswear company renowned for its innovative performance apparel. Headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland, UNDER ARMOUR has expanded its product line to include footwear and accessories, becoming a global leader in athletic gear.

The challenge

UNDER ARMOUR Japan was struggling with a high number of product returns from their online try-on experience, partly due to having fewer physical stores compared to other major apparel companies and thus relying heavily on e-commerce. They lacked effective measures to mitigate the cause of these returns. The problem was not only tackling return rates for apparel products, but to also include their line of shoes into a cohesive solution.

The solution

By integrating a size recommendation widget into the existing user journey, we were able to alleviate uncertainty about fit without creating additional friction in the purchasing flow. By also layering an analytics platform on top of the clothing and shoe fitting service, the team was able to monitor and adjust continuously based on performance.

Results

Comparing year-on-year performance, we were able to reduce the total amount of size-based returns by 27%, successfully achieving its return rate target of less than 3%. Looking at returns only for "size-related reasons,"the achieved rate was dropped below the brand's overall return rate.

UNDER ARMOUR continues to conduct detailed analysis of returned merchandise (e.g., trends by series) and revise its recommendation logic accordingly, with the aim of further reducing returns in the future.
