Target is expanding its clothing options for people with disabilities beyond children with a new collection of jeans and tops in adult sizes.
The retailer said it will roll out sensory-friendly and adaptive clothing for women as part of a new line called universal thread™ that’s meant to fit individuals of all shapes and sizes.
universal thread™ is all about making great style available to everyone, while offering unprecedented value and never compromising on quality,“universal thread™ is all about making great style available to everyone, while offering unprecedented value and never compromising on quality,” said Mark Tritton, Target’s executive vice president and chief merchandising officer.
Sensory-friendly options within universal thread™ will be free of tags, have flat seams and feature extra-soft material. Adaptive denim in the collection will offer a high-rise back and longer inseams, wider leg openings to make dressing easier, no back pockets and faux front pockets. Items will be priced from $5 to $39.99.
The new products for women with disabilities come just months after Target unveiled a collection of sensory-friendly and adaptive clothing for children as part of its Cat & Jack brand. Target declined to say if they will make sensory-friendly and adaptive options available for men.
While universal thread™ will be featured in stores, Target said the sensory-friendly and adaptive items will only be available on the retailer’s website when the collection goes on sale this month (February).
