Understanding Lupus and Its Impact on Clothing

Lupus is a chronic and often painful autoimmune disease that can cause inflammation in various parts of the body, including the joints, skin, and organs. 

For those with lupus, symptoms such as joint pain, skin sensitivity, and fatigue can make everyday activities, including getting dressed, challenging.

When it comes to selecting clothing, including bras, those with lupus often choose to prioritize comfort and support to alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with their condition. 

It’s vital to consider factors such as skin sensitivity, joint pain, and inflammation when exploring adaptive clothing.

What Is Adaptive Clothing?

Adaptive clothing is carefully designed with accessible features in mind. Its innovative designs make it a practical and adaptable choice for those with additional mobility or comfort needs. 

With many adaptive clothing options having adjustable straps, alternative closures and even materials that are suitable for sensitive skin, there are plenty of options out there to help simplify dressing routines.

Choosing the Right Lupus Bra

When selecting a bra for lupus, comfort, support, and ease of wear are perhaps the most important features to look for.

Here are some other important design elements to keep in mind when choosing a lupus bra:

Soft, Non-Irritating Fabrics: Adaptive bras made from soft, breathable fabrics can be more gentle on sensitive skin and less likely to cause irritation or discomfort. 

Adjustable Straps and Closures: Choose bras with adjustable straps and closure options, allowing for a customizable fit that accommodates fluctuations in size and provides optimal support.

Some adaptive bras will have front adjusting shoulder straps. These make the process of achieving a perfect fit more comfortable and less time-consuming.

Wire-Free Design: Avoid bras with underwire, as these can put pressure on sensitive areas and cause more pain and discomfort. Instead, opt for wire-free bras with soft cups that offer gentle support without digging into the skin. 

If you’re concerned that wire-free designs won’t offer adequate support, look into adaptive bras with more stretchy materials, these will often be more firm in holding their shape.

Front-Closure or Velcro Fastening: Fastens are perhaps one of the most important features of adaptive bras. There are lots of different options available including magnets and zipper fastenings.

For lupus bras, consider bras with front-closure Velcro fastens. These make them easier to put on and take off, especially for those with limited mobility or joint pain in the shoulders, back or arms.

Most adaptive bras can be put on and taken off in several ways to suit physical limitations. Velcro closures often offer the most flexibility with this.

Moisture: For those who experience sweating and hot flashes due to lupus, moisture can be an important consideration. Some materials are better than others if it is a priority to keep skin dry and cool.
