Dressing with a Broken Arm
(Go to our Home Page). Getting dressed with a broken arm that has been casted can present some issues. Short sleeved shirts or blouses are the easiest especially if the sleeve is generous to allow for the bulk of the cast to pass through. Consider t-shirts for women and men which are usually made of a more stretchy fabric. Remember to put the casted arm into the sleeve first. This will help you to get the garment on with less of a struggle. Pull on pants are much easier than those with zippers and buttons, but our Velcro® closure pants are also a good choice. Slip on shoes or those with hook and loop closures versus laces are most helpful. If you need help in making a clothing choice or need an alteration in any of our clothes, let us know.
