In Fashion’s Newest Frontier: The Disabled and the Displaced, author Vanessa Friedman writes about clothing for people with disabilities, referred to as “healthwear.”

Among the items now available are Magnaready‘s clothes with magnetic closures rather than difficult-to-manage buttons, and shirts by Care + Wear designed for people with medical ports so that they can stay comfortably dressed and merely unzip the section needed to access the port. Care + Wear also offers PICC line covers that come in a variety of fashionable colors.

Hallelujah! It’s about time! I can’t wait to see what’s next.
