Adaptive clothing is a design that changes everyday clothing into styles that are easily worn by individuals with physical disabilities, diminished motor skills or with dementias. Buck and Buck has designed a variety of adaptive clothing options for you to choose from based upon our own observations and from our discussions with customers like you. Our adaptive clothing designs promote independence in dressing and personal care for the wearer for as long as possible and also provide ease in the dressing process for the caregiver. Look for our adaptive clothing symbol "AD" on our web pages.

Cut-away Adaptive Clothing for Women
Sometimes the cut-away design dress is the best choice for the non-ambulatory woman. We cut the seat out of the dress to make toileting and personal care an easier process. This design, however, is only suitable for the woman who does not stand. Modesty and dignity is always our concern, so please make certain that this garment is appropriate for the woman you are buying for. We have several choices in our cut-away dusters. Take a look.
If the Muu Muu style is preferred because of the generous, non-restrictive neckline and raglan sleeves, you will love the choices in this garment.
An alternative to the Cut-away design dress is the wrap back dress. There are just three snaps on this dress, one at the shoulder and two at the waist to minimize pressure points for the woman in a recliner or wheelchair. Our Long Shoulder Snap Duster has just two snaps at the shoulder with no pressure points at the waist at all. For a more dressy look, choose our Long Polyester Wrap Back Dress.
Sometimes a woman prefers to wear slacks. If that is the case, and she is unable to bear weight, choose our unique back-flap design that is suitable for the woman who is being dressed while seated. Toileting and personal care is easy to provide.
Don't forget the wrap back night wear. There are many styles to choose from in our Gowns selections.
