Marks and Spencer’s, a well-known high streets giant has been praised for launching a range of clothing especially for children with disabilities.

The designs have been created to make parents and the children’s lives less stressful with special needs being kept in mind throughout the design. These clothes have been made with extra space for casts, as well as discreet pockets for feeding tubes. In addition, the garments have been made using the softest material with as few seems as possible, hidden labels, and soft Velcro fastening for easy dressing.

Rebecca Garner, Kidswear designer for Marks and Spences said “Parents passionately told us that disabilities don’t define their children, so the adaptations shouldn’t define their clothes, it’s why all the products are inclusively designed and modelled closely on our main collection.”

“So whilst big sister might wear a dress with sequins, the little one who wants to match but has sensory needs will have a softer glitter. Offering great value has been a key consideration and parents purchasing Easy Dressing products will never pay more.”
