Arthritis Clothing

Arthritis is one of the most prevalent chronic health problems that affect nearly 1 in every 3 adults in the USA. At Buck and Buck, we are concerned with the limitations related to independence that can occur as a result of disabilities caused by arthritis. We have several arthritis clothing designs that foster independent dressing such as hook and loop closures or zippers rather than buttons, generous elastic waistbands that make the garment easy to pull on, and necklines in some dresses and tops that allow for easy, over the head dressing. We can also put grab loops into our slacks, culottes and pants that will help the senior with arthritis to pull on the clothing without the assistance of a caregiver.

Women's Arthritis Clothing Styles

Choose from our arthritis clothing for women based upon the person’s ability to dress herself. The person dresses independently (self dresser) or needs help to dress (assisted dressing).
