Our favorite sensory friendly clothing brands for children on the autism spectrum.
Back-to-school can be a struggle for those who are searching for sensory-friendly clothing brands. Looking for tagless polos, comfy dress pants, and shorts that aren’t too long or scratchy but aren’t too short either can be a major time-sink. School shopping is never easy with any child, but if your child is on the autism spectrum, the challenge can be even more daunting when talking about sensory-friendly clothing brands or uniforms. Here are a few clothing brands our community has approved as comfortable and good quality too!
- Smart Knit Kids: They focus on seamless socks, underwear and t-shirts for both boys and girls. Their patented seamless socks are perfect for children experiencing sensory processing differences, hypersensitivity or who simply can’t stand annoying seams!
- Independence Day Clothing: An adaptive clothing line for kids, tweens, teens, and adults. You’ll find everyday basics that are perfect for a school uniform or a Sunday stroll. Classic styles that are a little bit preppy and a little bit sporty – there’s something for the whole family here.
- Target Adaptive: It’s not a brand in particular, but it’s a whole collection of adaptive clothing for the entire family. Hidden leg openings, flat seams, hidden abdominal access, and tag free – everything. This entire section offers a huge variety of options for casual and dress occasions, plus uniforms too.
- BILLY Footwear: A stylish shoe brand that offers zip-up ease while still maintaining the look of a lace-up shoe. What’s not to love about a shoe that looks like everyone else’s but offers the comfort of knowing your child won’t have the trip hazard of shoelaces that come untied.
