The highest impairment are those that affect mobility , lifting and carrying. We all have diverse expectations of our clothes and definitely want clothes that fit well. As designers, we need to put those with limited mobility, a large cohort,  that are often forgotten, more consideration. Everyone deserves to be happy, beautiful, confident, comfortable and more! Being physically challenged doesn’t mean that people should be made to wear less attractive clothing. In fact, they even need more trendy clothing to boost their confidence.
