Many of our clothing items can work for multiple conditions. For those who are a wheelchair user and for those who are not, it can be difficult to find clothing that is comfortable for long periods of time when seated. Whether this be in a wheelchair or around the home, these items often need small adaptations. Wheelchair clothing must be easy to put on – whether that is dressing independently or with assistance. We have selected our top picks for wheelchair clothing for women below. Don’t forget some of our clothes are available with VAT relief, so do check if you are eligible!
Petal Back Clothing
Petal Back clothing is a popular range for wheelchair users. With Petal Back polos, blouses and dresses to choose from (and over 7 prints) there is something to suit everyones style. The back of the dresses wrap over from shoulder to shoulder to ensure a dignified full overlap. With roomy arms and an optional belt they are comfortable for wheelchair users all day. The polos and blouses have deep arm holes for quick and easy dressing over the head, these work well for those with limited shoulder dexterity.
Wheelchair Trousers for Women
Our elastic waist ribbed trouser are a new style for Adaptawear. Proving popular already these simple but super comfortable trousers have no buttons or zips, and a fully elasticated waist. Easy to pull on and off the stretchy comfort fabric is ideal for long periods of sitting. These are a perfect alternative to tracksuit bottoms for those who like to feel a little smarter, and under £15 they are ideal for everyday wear.
For those who need a more adapted trouser, perhaps for toileting or assisted dressing needs, we have two adaptive options. The first is the easy-fit drop front trouser, opening past the hips with discreet zips and a velcro tab. When these trousers are completely fastened they look like any other smart ladies wear option. The ladies open back trouser are ideal for those who require hoisting. With a roomy fit for wheelchair users the two large flaps at the back overlap with a popper fastening and tuck underneath. The waist band is again fully elasticated for comfort.
