Shortie Vest, Protective clothing, for disabled children.

Shortie Vest

Regular price £12.65 Sale

Colour: White or Black

Made from comfortable stretchy cotton lycra, these garments are designed to be more close-fitting.  Some people may prefer the feeling of a close-fitting vest, especially if they are sensory or on the autistic spectrum. The sleeveless vests have little shorts and poppers at the crotch, allowing a nappy to be changed easily. Measurements shown are of unstretched garment which is designed to stretch by at least 2 inches. The advantages of these vests are;

  • The poppers at the gusset allow easy access when the pad or nappy needs changing, changing is less stressful for the carer and can take less time.
  • Worn under everyday clothes, the vests can conceal the nappy or pad, thus avoiding embarrassment or unwanted attention.
  • They can help prevent unwanted undressing at inappropriate times or places
  • The vests and bodysuit are comfortable and can help keep the person warm
  • Bodysuits and vests with popper access can keep the pad more securely in place, both during the day or at night time.
  • The little short leg means that it can be harder for the wearer to get at their pad or nappy, helping with unwanted incidents of 'smearing'
