Suppliers of adapted clothing

Listed below is just some of the suppliers of adapted clothing for people with disabilities and older people in Ireland. Adapted clothing is designed to make dressing and undressing easier. A garment may have a back opening, a side zip, easy to pull tags, soft pop fasteners, or use Velcro or elastic to replace standard buttons and zips. Sleeves and trouser legs can be wider so they are easier to slip on and off, or accommodate continence wear if necessary.

Alternatively, existing clothing may be adapted to be easier to get into and get out of. A good tailor or dressmaker can advise on what adaptations or alterations they can do to help.

This list is by no means exhaustive and just intended as a guide to the many suppliers and sources of adapted clothing available.
