Hi there. 

 

We are in a really, really bad place with DS at the moment, he does not accept any clothing. He did not leave the house the whole week, because he cannot get dressed. 

 

I did a bit of research and found out about pressure clothing, problem is, I live in Germany, and we don't have any companies who sell them. DS is too small for sports cloth, a diving suit would be small enough, but I figure that would be rather stiff. 

 

I am thinking if I can sew them myself. Did anybody try this? 

 

Or can anybody tell me a really good company and how the stuff fits? Because if I have to order from the US shipping will be horrendous, and if the clothing won't fit that would be really ... you know. 

 

I found a company from the uk as well, but I don't know. I need suggestions!

 

Thank you!

Can you find UnderArmor clothes there? They have children's sizes that start at extra small. My son has been very satisfied with them. We have found some other tight sports shirts but not as tight as the UnderArmor. Are there any resale clothing stores that might have them?

 

Good luck!

Would he wear a leotard or unitard under his clothing? Another idea might be for him to wear some leggings under his pants, Hanna Andersson has some really soft ones that my dd loves. In the cooler months thermal underwear may work.

The problem with sewing sensory clothes is the seams, which as sensitive as he is, could be an issue. 

 

There really are no compression shirts in Germany? Have you tried a sporting goods store? They are traditionally worn by athletes under sports jerseys, etc.

I found under armour bouncy.gif - and ordered two shirts. 

 

I could not find any compression leggings - only real warm ones, for temps below 13 degrees celsius. 

 

Most of the sport clothes start at least two sizes bigger than DS is. But Under armour had the right size. And it was on sale :)

 

Don't we all love eb*y

We have had an amazing experience with Teres Kids clothing. Attractive, soft, seams on the outside.  Even the most tactile sensitive children have enjoyed wearing their clothing. http://www.tereskids.com

Have you been able to try the Under Armour? Have things improved?

 

I'm particularly interested since we are at the same place with my 22 mo. old (for whom I'm finally considering evaluation, this being the proverbial straw - without going into detail, it seems way beyond normal two-year-old stuff). greensad.gif

We got the under armour, but he won't wear it *sigh*

 

It is not exactly his size though, i bought the smallest one available, but that was still a wee bit too large. 

 

he thinks it's tight. 

 

we have our next appointment on tueday. hopefully we'll find some help.

That's too bad about the under armor. What exactly is it about the clothes he doesn't like? (texture, tightness, tags, seams, etc etc or unknown).
