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?.’
