    Sensory Friendly Clothing : Target

    "The tagless design features flat seams..."

    I've been wearing these for a couple years without knowing they were advertised as "sensory friendly" until I saw them online.

    Pretty cool, huh! ;)

    I take an ordinary T shirt and turn it inside out, and that solves the seams problem :)

    BTW, the link doesn't lead to the T-shirt.

    But then aren't the seams visible and everyone tells you your shirt is inside out?

    What the duck! It does for me!

    I signed out then copied the link again. That's the only solution I could think of so I'll see if that helps. It changed the color of the person, so that's something. o_O

    Not if I'm wearing it under a jacket, sweatshirt or pullover - or another T-shirt :)

    Link still doesn't work for me, but it's ok, I get the idea.

    Looks like they have a whole range of "sensory friendly clothing" which I've never seen in a mainstream store over here.

    The link didn't work for me either @Fino , but see if THIS link to the range works @Progster ...

    Doing a quick google search for "sensory friendly clothing UK" brings up a great many results for online retailers of such garments based here. Prices seem to be quite a bit steeper than at Target in the US though...

    I'll link the search results below.

    This reminds me of all the times in my life when I was uncomfortable and could never identify the problem. Duh! Why did I put up with it all my life? I thought I was being unreasonably finicky, the same way I was with food. Thank you for this "eureka" moment. I feel validated.

    I HATE tags and labels in any of my clothes. First thing I have to do is cut them out. I can't bear the feeling

    Thank you! I just switched my link out for yours in the OP. :)

    I don't understand how I could copy a link wrong. :eek:

    The only pants/shorts I'm comfortable in are cargo shorts, and when I was a kid, somewhere around twelve, the store suddenly didn't have any and we went to pretty much every clothing store in the city looking for them. 'Twas madness!

    Now suddenly cargo shorts are everywhere! o_O:D

    And it's so rare for shirts to be the right size, I don't know how people just walk around, wearing all these random shirts of various sizes and designs. A buncha psychos! ;)

    Not directly. Most of the big out of town supermarkets do a similar kind of goods range though, but the emphasis is definitely on Groceries. I suppose ASDA (which was bought by Walmart about 15 or 20 years ago) is probably closest I think, but I've never seen any sensory friendly ranges in any such shops.

    Thank you for this! I've been looking for options for soft clothes. I do own a few things from Target that I found in person, I had no idea they had a sensory-friendly category. I've had some luck searching for "viscose" or "soft rayon" lately. It's good to know bamboo is an option. Has anyone tried clothing from this company?

    Not familiar with the underwear but also love rayon clothing. However you will be amazed at how wonderful bamboo feels. It is worth every penny. There are a few companies which sell it in addition to Amazon like Cariloha and Big Boy Bamboo for those who need plus and/or tall sizes.

    Target is quite progressive. They sell gender-neutral clothing and have removed gender from the toy section, not labeling them by gender and not using colors to indicate gender, such as pink for girl and blue for boy. These changes prompted a brief stir of protests!
