Disabled & aged clothing maker debuts new online store
Oct '13
For parents and careers of disabled children, even the most thorough Google search has often left them frustrated as the search for ‘easy on easy off’ clothing has yielded little joy. Inspired by Lacey Shea – an online shopping site that specializes in easy access clothes for children with autism and cerebral palsy, as well as adaptive clothing for disabled adults – has come to the rescue of frustrated parents with the launch of their new website and online store.

Ann Boer, marketing manager of Inspired by Lacey Shea explains, “Inspired by Lacey Shea is now also trading as ‘Dresseasy Clothing for Disabled and Aged.’ We would like to make our products easy to find when customers are searching the web for something to suit their dressing issues.”

Inspired by Lacey Shea has always offered stylish and functionally designed clothing for children with autism, cerebral palsy, and other disabilities, but they now also provide easy-on, easy-off clothing for disabled adults, that is practical, smart, and trendy. Their goal is to offer easy access clothes for adults with disabilities, whether permanent or temporary.

Ann says, “We are hoping to reach out to as many people as we can to help make life that little bit easier for all concerned. The clothes available through ‘Dresseasy Clothing for Disabled and Aged’ are made of quality fabrics and we believe that our customers will be pleasantly surprised at how versatile our garments really are.”

Ann continues, “We launched Inspired by Lacey Shea in March 2012, and now our garments are on display at the Independent Living Centre showroom in Adelaide, and also on their national data base. Unique designs, not found anywhere else, and with bright, top quality fabrics, we believe our products will help in the lives of so many families, whether experiencing permanent or temporary disability.”

“From design right through to manufacture, using top quality fabrics sourced in Australia, we are extremely proud to be making a difference in people’s lives. We are constantly adding to our range and updating our website.”

Ann further adds, “As we are a young company, we are constantly adding to and improving our range to help improve the lives of others. Our long-term plan is to continue to increase the children’s wear range and introduce more garments suited to aged care. Helping a person with dementia to take a shower, groom, or get dressed while they are not co-operating, can be extremely stressful and time consuming.”

“It is our aim to alleviate the time and stress by developing a range of clothing that will save time and energy by making the garments easy to get on and easy to get off without compromising the dignity of the wearer. All people deserve to look good and feel comfortable.”

One of the most saleable items on the Inspired by Lacey Shea’s online store is their t-shirts, which are available in various designs, colours and sizes. The easy-on, easy-off design not only looks good but also stays fresh throughout the day. Made of 100 per cent cotton stretch jersey, the t-shirts are soft against the skin and are comfortable to wear all day long.

This garment features both side and shoulder openings, which especially allows feeding tubes to remain discreet. What’s more is that these adaptive t-shirts for disabled adults will last endless machine washes.
