It’s a matter of self-respect: you may not be venturing out in public on a particular day, but you still want to feel good about what you wear and how you look. Those who design fashions for nursing-home residents and stay-at-home disabled women are well aware of these needs. By the same token, if you are dressing for work or dinner out, you appreciate well-fitting garments that are easy to put on and do not sag, pull, or bunch unattractively. Herewith, a list of websites that review online stores featuring adaptive clothing–the places that “get” us! Happy shopping!

Home sewers have their own sites, too–more on this later. Until then, take heart: we don’t have to rely on baggy sweats or Whatever We Can Grab anymore!
