Body Vests & Sleepwear Advice

Adaptive clothing can make a great difference to families with a child or relative with special needs. The right type of clothing or underwear can make the day to day care of someone with special needs easier and less stressful for carers. It can also improve the comfort and well-being of the user. The right type of clothing can make coping with incontinence less challenging while clothing designed with those with sensitive skin or sensory issues in mind can really help improve their physical comfort. Some people may need clothing adapted for wheelchair users or those with limited movement, while other may need garments which allow access for a feeding tube. There are different clothing solutions for a range of specific needs.

Fledglings range of adapted pyjamas, vests and underwear - designed to help with incontinence, smearing and undressing. Body vests which incorporate poppers are designed to fit over the body and fasten at the gusset, keeping a pad or nappy in place. The popper fastening makes changing easier - ideal for night time and when you are out and about.

Zip-back and zip-front pyjamas, designed to keep the wearer comfortable and warm while preventing undressing and hands accessing the pad or nappy. Unitards (without poppers) which can be worn under normal clothes or used at night for sleeping in, ideal for preventing incidents of smearing or undressing.

Body vests with poppers

Body vests under garments are styled to fit over the body and fasten with poppers between the legs.

We offer an extensive range in different lengths, styles and colours suitable for children and adults.

The Joey Body Vest is specially designed with poppers across the body to allow for easy dressing and to accommodate a feeding tube.

The advantage of our body vests are;

• Poppers between the legs at the gusset, allows easy access when nappy changing is required.
• Versions which have back, side or cross body openings are helpful for those who need help dressing as well as those who are tube fed. The garments are easier for carers to change, keeping unnecessary movement to a minimum.
• Can keep the nappy or pad in place, both during the day and at night time.
• Worn under regular clothing, the vests can help conceal the nappy and avoid embarrassment or unwanted attention.
• Comfortable and help to keep the person warm.
• Provide a comfortable and practical solution if a child or adult has a feeding tube.
• Is harder for the wearer to undress by themselves to access their nappy, preventing incidents of ‘smearing’.

Unitards

The unitard is an all in one garment which does not have a poppers between the legs. Ideal if the wearer has worked out how to undo poppers. The wearer would step in through the neck opening and pull the garment up over their body. Made of a stretch fabric containing lycra, they are designed to be close fitting.

For those on the Autistic spectrum or with sensory issues, the close-fitting garments can provide whole-body compression to enhance bodily awareness and can help children to feel secure. 

They can be worn under normal clothes as under wear or at night time. As these undergarments do not have a popper opening, they can help prevent chances of hands reaching nappies.

The Cap Sleeve Long Leg Unitard is particularly effective and can help minimise incidents of smearing. As the unitards are harder to remove, they can also prevent inappropriate undressing.
