Alex Morgan has always been a fearless sports star, but made headlines when she announced her pregnancy — and that she'd still be training to play in the Olympics post-birth. With the current pandemic, however, many things have changed.

Fashion brands are pivoting to work-from-home wear amid the pandemic
The demand for comfortable clothing to wear at home is at an all-time high. To meet sales, brands have been shifting supply chain, content and marketing to adapt to consumers' new lifestyles. Intimates brand Lively told Glossy that although swimwear is its top-selling category, loungewear has seen a 200% increase since the beginning of March. As demand grows, even brands who usually aren't in the realm of leisurewear are making plans for comfortable clothing, and it's expected that more will follow suit. {Glossy}

Small businesses band together for a new "Better Together" campaign
Covid-19 has had a large impact on small businesses, and in response, 37 small, women-led brands have grouped together in a "Better Together" campaign focused on building brand awareness and encouraging their followers to shop small. Andie Swim, Bembien and Modern Citizen are among the participants, all of whom have agreed to support their communities against coronavirus in some way, whether it's donating a percentage of sales, making masks at their factories, and donating products. {Fashionista Inbox}

How coronavirus is impacting Black hair businesses
While most agree that the closure of non-essential businesses was necessary for safety, that does not take away the effect it's had on Black hair business owners, stylists and their clientele. Hair has always played a huge role in Black culture, as Black women view their hair as important to self-care and representative of their identities. Without the money being spent at the salons, stylists and owners are working actively to re-strategize their businesses, by creating virtual content and focusing on natural hair care during this time. {Refinery29}
