About

 Why The Adaptable Woman? 

 Stylish clothing offering adaptive features, designed specifically for the older woman's body is so needed! Just ask your mother, your grandmother. As women age, we do not lose who we are. We are not invisible. We want to stay independent as long as possible. This includes dressing and undressing ourselves in the stylish clothing we always have worn but need a more adaptable design to aid our dressing and undressing.

Blouses are designed to open from the shoulder, helping reduce the need for extreme movement. Less movement, less pain.

Starting with three blouses, each designed with the mature woman's body in mind. A looser fit so the fabric drapes the body for comfort and style.

We are starting with a good quality poly -crepe fabric with a beautiful drape and a bit of texture of coverage. Fabric is wash and wear.

Closures used on the blouses will be offered with two choices. You can choose either velcro or snaps. Small snaps are too difficult to maneuver and in our research studies, many women cannot even see them, so we have chosen medium snaps. Larger snaps can be difficult to press with arthritic fingers.  Since women with heart conditions cannot use magnet closures, we decide to offer only snaps and velcro at this time.

Depending on your personal limitations, choose the closure best suiting your needs.

We are starting with three Adaptable Blouses. As we grow our business, our line will extend to other options.

These three designs were the favorites from the many try-on sessions with our helpful supporters! We decided to open with a small grouping but with lots of color choices.

Risks and challenges

The Adaptable Woman has implemented the beginning engine, but to actually make this a real clothing line specific to elderly women, we need financial support. So far, every dime is out of pocket. To move to the next step, money is needed. I will be using the funds raised for fabric, manufacturing, and marketing. This process is a stair climb. Once this goal is achieved, I will expand the line to other much needed garments.
