Seams Away (Australia) is closing down, and all their products are $5, which is very cheap for seamfree clothing!
Calming Kids (WA, shipping calculated at checkout) – inflatable deep pressure vests, happy sacks, steamrollers, bed socks, several weighted products, etc.
Making life easier: bras, by Letters from Aspergia.
We’ve had issues with bras here too – our success came with the neat little trick of upsizing the back measurement and downsizing the cup – for a roughly equivalent fitting, but less tightness.
Aspergia lists a few other great options I wish we’d known about earlier, but will keep in mind for the future.
Mid-thigh bike pants – some children like the proprioceptive input from tight clothes – and I like that these pants restrict nappy access from the bottom! I’ve often found that bike shorts are short, and not always available depending on the season and fashion – so these are good for both price and availability.
Many people with autism find clothing uncomfortable – fabrics, seams, tightness/flappiness etc. If practical solutions like turning socks inside-out, or wearing a tight vest/bike shorts as undergarments don’t work, here are some Australian businesses selling sensory-friendly clothing.
ItMakesSense (Brisbane, shipping $9) – Seamless undies, socks, bralettes and Greeper Laces, among other things.
Seams Away (Melbourne, shipping $9.95+) – socks, undies and outerwear.
Jettproof (NSW, shipping $10+) – snug-fitting onesies, and sleeveless, short- and long-sleeved T-shirts.
Calming Clothing for Kids – singlets, short- and long-sleeved shirt, shorts and pants.
And these two have great solutions to some clothing difficulties:
Wonsie (free shipping in Australia) – bodysuits for older kids, great for keeping hands out of nappies…
Apikali (Brisbane, shipping $5) – Mostly cloth nappies and incontinence aids, but we love their reusable swim nappies in larger sizes. We use the Splashabout Swim Pants Child.
