About the collection
SPECIAL FASHION

Our clothing is designed specifically for seated people . The clothing is made in a way that is more comfortable, but the clothes look better because the fit is tailored to sitting.

The waist is low ( so the clothes do not press into the abdomen) , the back waist is high.

The waist is slightly wider than average, so the clothes are not too tight.

The redundant fabric is reduced in the groin and knees.

There is a knee tuck ​​so, the legs looks beautiful and wears comfortable.

For the upper body , the changes compared to regular clothing, are a bit more subtle. For an optimal fit his shoulders are turned slightly forward

The garments end on the lap and at the rear they end slightly above the seat.
