Fashion can be a way for people to express themselves — different colors, fabrics, and shapes allow a consumer’s personality to shine through. However, clothing reflecting creativity is not always available for all. For individuals with disabilities, it can be difficult to find clothing that is not only wearable but also represents their ideal aesthetic.
We believe that information about adaptive clothing brands should be accessible to all, so that people may make shopping decisions that are best for them. This is also really important to consider when disabled individuals need breathable, easy to wear adaptive clothing when traveling or engaging in daily activities. Below, we have featured five adaptive clothing brands that embody the importance of inclusivity.
