For those of you who have ever searched for women's adaptive clothing, you're well aware of just how hard it can be. From a lack of retailers to styles that can be less than flattering, it has not been an easy feat. Lately, however, adaptive fashion has been having a bit of a boom. From established brands like Tommy Hilfiger releasing adaptive lines, to newcomers like BILLY Shoes changing the game with their easy-zip adaptive shoes, finding stylish adaptive clothing at your favorite retailers (we see you Target and Zappos!) is become less and less of a rarity. But what exactly is adaptive clothing? Let's break it down.
What is adaptive clothing?
Adaptive clothing is apparel specifically designed for people with disabilities who struggle with dressing themselves independently, adapting to the specific individual's needs and making what was once impossible, possible. Adaptive clothing varies and tackles all sorts of disabilities. For those with physical limitations, adaptive clothing may include pieces made with velcro or magnetic closures for quick dressing that doesn't involve fumbling with buttons and zippers. For those with sensory issues, adaptive clothing may include pieces made with specific materials and textures that are soothing to the wearer. In the end, adaptive clothing takes dressing, something that everyone should have the joy of doing on their own, and makes the not-so-simple task simple again.
