It's hard enough getting your young child dressed, but it's another challenge alltogether when your kid has sensory issues, and is sensitive to various clothing textures and styles.
Enter US retailer Target, who are expanding their kids' clothing line with one for kids with special needs. An extension of their house brand Cat & Jack, the new range will have a "sensory-friendly" range for kids wth processing sensitivities.
The pieces include heat-transferred labels in place of tags, flat seams, and one-dimensional graphic tees, all designed to minimise discomfort when in contact with the skin, Target wrote in a blog post.
The line includes three main styles for girls (long-sleeve tee, short-sleeve tee, and leggings) and two styles for boys (long- and short-sleeve tee).
"For these pieces, we decided to start with our core tees and leggings, and address guests' most common requests — like removing tags and embellishments that can irritate the skin. We also added more ease through the hip and a higher rise in our leggings to fit with diapers, if needed, for older kids," said Target.
