what is adaptive clothing?
Adaptive clothes are garments designed to be functional, comfortable, and accessible for people with specific needs.
Are you recovering from surgery, dealing with a diagnosis, or have restricted movement? No matter your circumstances, you deserve to wear clothes you love and be able to express yourself through fashion. We know this can be challenging when getting dressed is a struggle, or your medical team needs regular access to a port, IV drip or surgical site.
That’s where adaptive clothing comes in - but much of what has historically been available isn't exactly what'd we call fashion.
Our range of functional clothes are designed to be fashionable for social settings and easily accessible for medical appointments. This means you can swan straight into your doctor’s office after catching up with the girls – no wardrobe change required.
Good adaptive apparel provides all the ease and comfort of a hospital gown – minus the less-than-flattering design and cheeky display. Our women’s adaptive clothing flows flawlessly, looks lovely, and opens through the sleeves and sides to provide easy (yet modest!) access to all areas. The snap-fasteners are lightweight and stay out of sight.
We believe fashion should suit your life, not the other way around.
That’s why our adaptive wear is:
- Easy to put on and take off
- Comfy to wear and simple to wash
(machine wash, hang to dry, no ironing needed)
- Designed with bright colours and prints – so you can feel better by looking your best.
adaptive clothing for people, not “patients”
Fashion is important to us, and we know it’s important to you too. Having an operation, medical treatment or a disability shouldn’t stop you from looking or feeling like yourself.
So, our garments aren’t designed for “patients”. They’re designed for real people – people who just happen to need more flexibility from their fashion.
Whether you need a comfortable dress to wear after surgery or shirts for port access during chemo, the limonata range is here to help you look and feel your best.
