Finding adaptive clothing that works when you have a disability

 Adaptive clothing is a market but why does it mean not fashionable these days? Being designed with a wheelchair user and others with special needs in mind. Adaptive clothing increases independence, and it is functional but not fashionable.
 
Designers think it cannot be fashionable and remain functional. Fasteners such as zippers and Velcro allow the adaptation to happen. People with special needs. Especially wheelchair users are at a higher risk of pressure sores. Clothing made well. Clothing that you feel great in, boosts your self-esteem. People with special needs have unique needs.
 
People with special needs have unique needs. Why does functional have to look like it is for someone with special needs? Life is hard enough living a life of difference. Many people with special needs have a range of motion issues. it improves the comfort of the person wearing the clothing if they fit.
 
Adaptive clothing made has many benefits. it makes me wonder if the cost of making these clothes is somehow more expensive. because of general needs of comfort. It is my perception, that the adaptive clothing industry. Think that they have to sacrifice comfort in the name of functionality.
 
I hope there comes a day. When adaptive clothing does not look like its adaptive. I want there to be a time when there is no longer a need to pick function over comfort \instead of factoring in both?.’

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.
