If you have a kid who just puts clothes on like it’s no big deal, you’re a lot luckier than you probably realize. For those of us with a child with sensory issues, clothing is one of a million battles we fight every day. For most kids with tactile sensitivities, tags are a problem; they can be removed, fortunately.
But for many kids with Sensory Processing Disorder, Autism, ADHD, and other medical issues that can cause tactile sensitivity, even the seaming inside a shirt can cause issues, and sometimes it can be hard to figure out what clothing will be rejected as “too scratchy” or “rough.”
My sensory-challenged son is now ten and I still don’t always get it right.
The mom behind Soft Clothing gets it–some kids simply cannot abide clothing that isn’t perfectly soft and smooth. So that’s what they sell: Shirts, pants, cardis, and even party dresses designed for kids with sensory issues. No tags, no rough seams, just deliciously soft, silky smooth cotton. Sure, the neurotypical kids will love them too, but to have a plethora of good-looking basics available at normal-people prices that my son will wear without complaint? I think I’m in love. -Mir
