If you’re a caregiver, finding clothes for the person you’re caring for is often one of the most difficult day-to-day needs. Finding clothes that are tag-less, fabrics that are less itchy and softer for your skin, slip on shoes, shoes with a velcro strap if you can’t tie laces… the options are few, and if there are any, they are scattered across the internet.
Enter Zappos. This online consumer brand is pioneering a movement in the clothing world to offer stylish options that provide functionality and comfort to those who need adaptive options. Better yet, they’re placing these options in one place. Zappos has compiled an impressive inventory of clothes that offer everything from sensory friendly fabrics to tagless shirts to elastic waisted shorts and pants.
As Zappos put it, the catalyst for their adaptive clothing push began with a phone call from a customer who wanted to purchase strap-on shoes because her grandson could not tie his own laces. This sparked an initiative to offer style options for those with special needs and disabilities.
Stay tuned. There’s more to come from Zappos and their efforts to offer clothing items that accommodate a plethora of needs, but for now, browse their site and to find adaptive clothing and shoe options specific to your day-to-day needs.
