Adaptive clothing that offers style, fit, and comfort is gaining more and more attention. ‘Zappos Adaptive’ features a clothing line for adults and children that are tagless, reversible, have elastic waistbands, and super-soft fabric with no buttons. Everyone has sensory preferences, and individuals with autism, for example, have preferences that can distract or upset them to the point where it interrupts daily functioning. Julie Beasley, a child neuropsychologist and director of UNLV’s Ackerman Center for Autism and Neurodevelopment Solutions, says that Zappos is the first mainstream retailer she’s seen that offers clothing that specifically caters to people with disabilities.
