Reply To: Wearing apparel for the aging senior



Clothes that are easy to care and comfortable. Clothes with elastic waist bands or Velcro closures are great choices. Nothing tight around the neck. Forget zippers, hooks, snaps, and buttons because they are frustrating and stressful to negotiate. Buy soft fabric clothes. Pull-over tops work. Always wear socks and sturdy, non-slip shoes, preferably those that don’t have laces (i.e., loafers, slip-ons, low-riders, sandals); look for those which use Velcro fasteners.
