  • Preferred type of pants in a wheelchair

    Finding pants that are comfortable while sitting in a chair has been a recent adventure of mine. Jeans that I used to wear when I walk are not as comfortable while in my chair.

    Maternity jeans or anything elastic always wins for me. How about you? What pants do you prefer?

    Can be boring but leggings ALWAYS, I hoist also so they need to be stretchy (commode sling not full body) I love my fashion and you can pair with any top/dress then just accessorize to the max!

    There are so many colours, prints and fabrics!

    I never really had that comfort problem when I began using my chair. But I do stick with elastics just because it’s easier balance wise to get them up and down, and your dexterity doesn’t have to be on point if you’re in a rush. Have you tried jeggings?
