Many traditional clothing brands have developed adaptive lines to accommodate a wider group of people and allow individuals with physical limitations the opportunity to wear the same clothing as their peers. Adaptive clothing is helpful to those with FOP once joints become locked or mobility is limited.


SwimZip is a bathing suit company who makes a line of front zip swim shirts. The shirts come in children and adult sizes and in both long and short sleeves. Zippers can be a powerful tool for making dressing easier.  SwimZip shirts have big zipper pulls to make it easier to grip. Front zippers allow for shirts to be put on like a jacket instead of over the head like a shirt. Swim shirts also protect your skin while out in the sun and help avoid sunburn and skin damage.
