Users comments
Sweaters are often difficult to button.
Blouses can be too tight across the stomach and do not fit a person with quadriplegia who sits slumped.
Occasionally the user finds clothing that fits her in the stores. She feels that Gudrun Sjöden,, often has appropriate clothing (last checked May 2020).

She borrowed the idea of buttoning a sweater with a wool band from a sweater by Gudrun Sjödén, (photo above), see related hint.
