The US apparel industry is worth $1.5 trillion, and the feminine fashion industry is valued at approximately $180 billion. Cute Clique is a hyperactive Shopify store with a range of women's apparel and premium fashion accessories. But no matter how chic a product is, people don't prefer to shop from slow-loading storefronts. Cute Clique had a similar case.

This hyperactive fashion brand faced issues with Shopify's speed score. Due to this, their conversions had a drastic impact. Their store's smartphone homepage speed was 19, the collection page's speed was 20, and the product page's speed was 22. While on the desktop, their homepage's speed was 65, the collection page speed was 86, and the product page speed was 68.
