Clothing issues

Please help! Would like to connect with people who are dealing with clothing issues. Miss 5 refuses to wear pants and is now unfortunately not liking the idea of undies on. Please inbox me as I'm needing some strategies and to help me get an understanding as to why this is happening. Thanks x

Not sure how to message as I am brand new member. But the reason I joined is because my daughter has sensory issues with clothes. Undies,socks,pants,shorts and jumpers. We were struggling with it alone until we reached out to everyone asking for advise and help. It helped with out stress levels and understanding what she was going through but I had to come up with a strategy on my own. The strategy I used and still use is..... I let her chose which undies she wants to wear, we put them on and then if she complains about them I say" the wiggles are in your brain let me do surgery!" I then chase her,and pretend to do surgery on her brain. It has become a fun game ! And guess what the wiggley undies became less and our connection has strengthened. Other times I will put clothing on her and switch straight to distraction mode, chasing game,tag your it, or pick her up and grab everything to go often getting her to hold lots of items for me until her arms are very full.

She already chooses her clothes and will try distraction. Thanks for sharing those tips x

We buy some sensory clothing , cut off tags on other things and also I make sure I put my hand inside clothing before I buy it , feel the seams are there any appliqué that is scratchy on the inside . My nephew has a problem wearing pants so around the house he wears oversized t shirts that look like a dress . He is 13 and non verbal but now understands that he has to have pants on to leave the house but at home he wears an oversize t shirt or a nightie that covers up the important stuff and provides him comfort and modesty from other people .
