About Calmwear

Why Choose CalmWear™ ?

CalmWear began as a project fuelled by frustration, and a strong will to help those with sensory issues thrive. 

We know that compression therapy works.

We know that constant pressure on the body will calm an overwhelmed sensory system, whether the cause is autism. anxiety, sensory processing, or anything else in which a person cannot function to their full capacity because they are constantly distracted by their sensory needs. 

But when we looked, we found .... nothing. And so began the frustration..

Weighted vest worked - but only for a short amount of time. What about the other 23 hours in a day?

Weighted blankets offered relief...but with same restrictions? What about during the day?

Why is there nothing available that will successfully manage the demands of an overstimulated sensory system ALL DAY?

So, we set out to make our own sensory compression wear, and we not only did, but we also made the BEST!

Along with Specialists, Engineers, and Professionals in the field of Autism and Sensory Processing Disorder, CalmWear™ was developed.

Based on studies into sensory compression, and the calming effects of a hug - real, or simulated - CalmWear was created as a way to provide the wearer with the calming effects of a deep pressure hug, 24 hrs a day!

What a tremendous difference this makes to those living with sensory needs.

CalmWear™ holds it's compression factor for longer than any competitors - a full 48 hours - before you will need to wash or change the garment. 

This is SO IMPORTANT to the success of compression wear as therapy. Other garments will stretch out after as early as 30 minutes, which creates more sensory chaos, and the opposite effect that is desired. CalmWear™ delivers calming therapy straight through the day and night. 

CalmWear™ is extremely breathable, and lightweight, making it comfortable to wear year round, under clothes and pjs, in ANY climate. It wicks away moisture and heat, so one will not overheat while wearing.

CalmWear's  ability to completely calm the sensory system down, and allow the wearer to focus and THRIVE,  continues to change the lives of those with sensory needs, worldwide. 

We are  proud of our product, and the solution it provides, and we are certain of your success when you purchase with us.

Be sure to order the perfect amount of compression for the intended wearer by simply comparing chest measurement to our sizing chart.

We look forward to having you join our CalmWear™ family!

 

Sizing Charts

We have already allowed for the correct amount of  sensory compression, so please use the exact chest measurement when deciding on size.

If your measurement is between two sizes, our recommendation is that you size down, although both will work. The reason we recommend sizing down, is that most individuals are craving the sensory input to feel calm, so slightly more snug is always a safe way to go. However, if the garment is for a growing child, you may want to choose the higher of the two sizes. 

 CalmWear needs to provide gentle sensory compression to the muscles to work effectively, so be sure to choose the size within these guidelines.
