Target Adaptive Clothing – Heading for the Win

This post is about Target adaptive clothing, a line that came out in October of 2017.

There are affiliate links in this post, which means that if you buy something using a link from this post, I’ll get a small percentage from Target. You won’t pay any more money than if you had used a different link to get there, and you are helping to fund this site! Win-win. Read more on my disclosure page.

The Target adaptive clothing line came out late last year. The line was starting out with kid’s clothes, making adaptive clothing within the Cat & Jack brand (which I love and clothe my kids almost exclusively in, because they have the ASL t’s (see left) and the “Kind is Cool” stuff)

The kid’s adaptive clothing line is awesome. It has the whole tamale – swimsuits, pants, shirts,

I liked how the clothes come with strategic holes for ports and tubes, and most clothing is a little more spacious in case diapers are being used.

I also liked how so many models on the site had disabilities.

I wanted more variety though. I was specifically looking for the ASL shirts and more from the “Kind is Cool” wear, but there wasn’t much. I am going to cut them slack though, since the line just started about 6 months ago. Hopefully they will be adding more soon.

Speaking of Adding More to the Target Adaptive Clothing Line…!

There are NO clothes for men! There aren’t that many for grown women either, but at least there is something. I’m hoping Target revs up and gets the men’s section going (you know that it’s not just women and children who have disabilities, right, Target?!!).

The clothes for women are cute. Not a huge selection, but cute.

I really liked the jeans, which (besides being fun and trendy), promise to help reduce pressure points with the use of flattened seams, and have high-rise backs and wider-leg construction.

The shirts were also cute, so much so that even though I do not personally need adaptive clothing, I found myself shopping along.

They only had one dress and one skirt featured on their site – and the skirt was sold out. I wasn’t sure how adaptive the dress really was… but it’s cute.

So, all in all, I’m going to say it’s a solid start.

I’m looking forward to seeing an expanded line that more people across the disability spectrum will identify with and feel represents them and their particular needs and interests.

  1. Another point about Target, at least in our area, they have companion or family restrooms. The prices seem reasonable compared to some I’ve seen. And yes, hoping for men’s stuff!
