Inclusion matters in all aspects including fashion. Now you can buy clothing and accessories that are both cute and functional for people with disabilities or medical needs. Aerie has partnered with Abilitee Adaptive Wear in order to offer accessories to support all types of medical devices.


Six years ago, Aerie stopped airbrushing its models. In the years following, the brand has worked towards inclusivity, showing different body types, different races, skin “imperfections,” models in wheelchairs, and women with chronic illness and who use an ostomy and arm crutches.

According to Aerie’s post on Instagram, “@AbiliteeAdaptiveWear is a change-making brand creating adaptive apparel for people with disabilities & medical needs. We’re so excited to sell some of their empowering products at!” 

The accessories line includes items like an ocean blue insulin pump bag, a baby pink cath clip, a soft arm sleeve for PICC lines, and a cheeky ostomy cover.
