CalmWear therapy shorts are a popular choice to wear under clothing to assist children that wriggle, to provide calming sensory input and calm their sensory system, help create body awareness plus provide proprioceptive feedback (information received from muscles and tendons, concerning body movement and position).
CalmWear shorts assist children to stay calm, focus and learn and have been designed for comfort with no internal stitching (for a seamless feel), no centre seam and no tags.
For sizing most children will wear the same size as they would in regular shorts and jeans. View CalmWear sizing chart .
CalmWear is manufactured from a high quality, breathable, moisture-wicking, special sensory fabric which is durable and keeps the wearer cool, dry and comfortable all year round.
Please seek advice from your Occupational Therapist if you are unsure as to whether this is an appropriate product for your child.
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.
