Many stores and companies market clothing and products for people, believing that all customers are the same. However, not everyone in the world is built the same and therefore, sometimes, companies need to alter their products in order to better suit individual needs.

However, there are many times in which parents need to modify clothing and products to fit their child's needs when they have a disability or a special need.

Some of the features include wider necks, flat seams, and two-way zippers.
