When faced with a difficult decision, Nina Faulhaber the co-founder of ADAY, a technical clothing line for women, chose to listen to her customers above all else.

After the debut of its everyday leggings, the apparel item skyrocketed in popularity. Continuously selling out and restocking this bestselling item seemed like a great thing -- that was until some of ADAY’s early customers chimed in with negative feedback.

Listening to customer feedback and ensuring the highest quality products was important to Faulhaber -- even if it meant being sold out of the leggings. The team decided to go back to the drawing board and figure out a solution.
