What-to-Wear-When-Your-Arm-is-in-a-Cast-or-a-Sling

What to Wear When Your Arm is in a Cast or a Sling

What to Wear When Your Arm is in a Cast or a SlingIt is HARD to find something that is stylish and will work for you when you have your arm casted, braced, or in a sling. Limitations are everywhere when it comes to your wardrobe unless you have a personal assistant helping you dress, bathe, etc. Button-down jeans, attempting to put on a belt or even something that used to be so simple like tying your shoes is now giving you fits. But you still want to look good while you heal and let your personality shine when you are out and about right?  You could look to your caregiver for help or do it on your own. Here are some great fashion tips from our friend, Alison Gary, a fashion journalist and owner of the popular blog, Wardrobe Oxygen, that helped her get through her time of healing while staying stylish, comfortable and looking great!


Tops

To top things off, Alison wore shawls and pashminas, flowing garments that wouldn’t be too close to the skin or the cast, and give a feeling of freedom. She also recommends jackets in softer materials that can be taken off easily, just in case you start to feel uncomfortable.


Slouchy sweaters and tunics that are easy to get over the head, and tops with elbow-length sleeves that won’t stick to the cast are excellent options. For your first layer to give you hidden comfort underneath the stylish items, a ribbed tank will help to keep the top layers in place, and v-neck tees are a comfortable choice.

Wearing these free-flowing and soft tops can help with an overall feeling of attractiveness, which is so important while you’re wearing a cast and worrying about whether your movements look stiff or pained.

Bottoms

fashion-605508_1280What about bottoms? Getting bottoms in a larger size than you need could help make it easier for you to get dressed with one arm. Leggings can also give you a good solid bottom option to wear with your oversized tops and you won’t miss a step when it comes to style.

Dresses

Stretchy dresses may be the way to go, and you can wriggle your way into them without worrying about whether they can get over the cast. A stylish caftan that is big enough to slip on easily can also be an option to pair up with leggings or boots.

But the struggle continues. Now you have a few options for clothing choices that give you room to move your arms around and make it easier to get into tops, bottoms and dresses. What else can you do to try to get around the “snags” in looking good while your arm is in a cast? What do we do when the material of those clothing items we have rub against the cast or ride up while we’re wearing them?

Cast covers can help, and you can quickly identify which clothing materials work well with the comfortable and washable material used in CastCoverz! Armz!. Armz! will help to protect your clothes from snags and you can pick a couple of colors to wear with outfits chosen to make feel free and attractive while you keep yourself comfortable and stylish!

Accessories

Accessories present a new and exciting challenge during the cast-wearing days, don’t they? You can’t get into those boots you loved to wear, and your favorite handbag is hard to swing down from your arm so you can rummage through it. What-to-Wear-When-Your-Arm-is-in-a-Cast-or-a-Sling-2
Flat shoes that you can slip into, and stretchy boots that you can pull on will make a big difference when you’re getting dressed and undressed. A cross-body purse is a practical alternative to the shoulder purse, and scarves are easier to put on than necklaces during this time. A wool cape or a down vest can be roomy options for the cold winter days or spring weather. The ultimate accessory is a cast cover that you can wear with any number of outfits and you can get them here at CastCoverz!

Looking your best while your arm is in a cast can help you to feel better and heal better, and you may want to consider some of the other things that can contribute to your recovery.
