I have a SIL whom I take care of (she is physically disabled). Her
disabilities include severe parkinsonian tremors. Although she has
many problems, it is very important to her to have as much
independence as possible.
One of the items she wants to be independent on is dressing.. She is
unable to work snaps or hooks at all, so she has been wearing
shapeless cotton "sports" bras (the ones made like a short athletic T
shirt, with elastic at the bottom edge). Unfortunately, these give
her absolutely no definiton/shape whatsoever.
I have been trying to figure out a way for her to be able to wear a
bra with molded cups, to give her better support and shaping..
So far, the only idea I have come up with is to purchase a proper bra,
and cut out the entire back panel between the straps, and replace it
with wide elastic of the correct length.
Any other suggestions?
