The stress of dressing for disabled people | Letter

Dr Elizabeth Kealy-Morris on the difficulties disabled people have finding clothes that fit their bodies and their social groupings

Thanks for Lucianne Tonti’s article (How do you get dressed in the morning? Four very different approaches to putting on clothes, 13 June). I’ve researched this topic as it relates to the daily work that disabled people must engage in to find clothes that fit their bodies and their social groupings. For those of us with beautifully “different” bodies, getting dressed can be stressful and often is as much about rejecting clothes as it is selecting them.
