THE CALMWEAR™ HUGThere is one thing that cannot be debated. Something that research has proven a million times over. And that is what the calming effect of a hug will have on one's sensory system. This is especially true for adults and children who struggle with the sensory needs of Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder, ADHD, and Anxiety.
Developed by a caring parent of a child with Autism, CalmWear has vastly improved the day to day lives of this family, and thousands more. After a frustrating and exhausting search could not produce a sensory garment that was suitable for special needs children, one that would enable them to self-regulate and could be worn discreetly all day, every day….CalmWear was born.
Since CalmWear's inception, the life changing effect it has had for families across the globe speak volumes - the testimonials, the affirmations, the successes and the stories, have made this the most incredibly rewarding and uplifting adventure we could hope for. What started as a passion product to help one family, continues to improve the lives of those living with sensory needs, the world over!
Based on research and studies on the complexity of sensory compression that was first brought to our attention by famous Professor and Author, Temple Grandin - herself on the autism spectrum - CalmWear offers the perfect amount of sensory input to calm the system, and allows the wearer to focus, learn, and thrive. IT IS NOT A CURE, BUT IT IS A SOLUTION TO MEETING ONE'S SENSORY NEEDS 24 HOURS A DAY!
We have already allowed for the correct amount of sensory compression, so please use the exact chest measurement when deciding on size.
If your measurement is between two sizes, our recommendation is that you size down, although both will work. The reason we recommend sizing down, is that most individuals are craving the sensory input to feel calm, so slightly more snug is always a safe way to go. However, if the garment is for a growing child, you may want to choose the higher of the two sizes.
CalmWear needs to provide gentle sensory compression to the muscles to work effectively, so be sure to choose the size within these guidelines.
