Keep Your Cool with Calming Compression

Breathe easy while wearing our comfortable deep pressure vest. The breathable mesh ensures comfort in warmer weather, and the snug fit offers a reassuring “hug” that helps filter sensory overload. Compression through the trunk and upper body helps to calm and focus. Use hook-and-loop closures and side panels to adjust to best fit.

  • Hug-like compression encourages calm and feeling of security
  • Supports kids with ADHD, sensory integration disorder or autism
  • Made by Fun and Function
  • Age 4+

Ideas for Use

Children can wear their pressure vest all day, though it's recommended for intervals of 20 minutes while taking a test, eating dinner, doing homework and during other activities where sensory input is helpful. Use with adult supervision.

    "This is a really good vest, and it helps our little one feel calm and grounded. Would love it even more if the Velcro and mesh would be a bit softer. Thanks!"

    Huge Difference

    "This is our second set and we LOVE them. My husband calls them “medically necessary”. We’ve found they make a huge difference in behavior. We not only use this for regular activities but our daughter wears this over her suit for swimming lessons. The swim instructor is amazed at the difference."

    I purchased this vest Feb 2, 2014 off Amazon my son was 9, nearly five years later he is now 13 and yes he is small for his age however the size Small I purchased still is too big. I’ve pulled it pass the Velcro attachment onto some of the mesh portion just to get a tight fit, still not tight enough. From the front it appears to be tight and snug eventho it looks too small from the front view but in the back still not tight enough so I purchased the fitted tees. First, the medium which was just a little too big so I then ordered a small which fits very good. However, even wearing together with the fitted tees it is not enough pressure or snug enough fit. I want to order the weighted compression vest but my issue is sizing. The chart may work for most however it does not work for US. I may just have to find a different company.

    This vest helps my daughter stay calm and focused. It really helps her on her bus ride to school and on doctors' appts. It is more comfortable for her to wear and she is more willing to wear it as opposed to the weighted vest.

    a bit short, but provides pressure needed
    "The medium vest was too big for my daughter. She's 5'6" with a long petite waist. We settled for the small- which is a bit short, but provides the pressure she needs."

It is non-evasive and the children do not appear adverse to the texture ! it has provided the right amount of pressure throughout therapy sessions to elicit increased focus and attention for successful completion of tasks!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!

    We love the vest! It helps calm and keep my 3.5 focused on activities. I will say, we ordered an XS, and I wish I would have gone with a S. He is a big 3.5, more like the size of 4.5. But other than that- it's perfect! The mesh is WONDERFUL for our hot hot weather here in SoCal.

    item looks well made, just too big.
    Verified Purchase
    item looks nice but was way too big. I consulted with the company over live chat and we agreed upon a size to order. unfortunately it was too big to be effective. I have since ordered a smaller size and will keep the bigger vest for future use. Fun and Function response: Correct sizing is really important for all pressure style products. We are happy to hear the smaller vest is working for you. Feel free to contact us to arrange a return for the larger vest.

    Not impressed with sizing chart vs real size of vest
    These mesh ones run huge. I measured my daughter very precisely and went by their sizing chart specifically. I got the vest and it is HUGE on her. So much so, that the velcro doesn't even catch on the shoulders OR the sides! I specifically ordered when I did so we'd have this by the time she went back to school after winter break...if I return it now to get another size, it won't be here in time for the start of school. Very disappointed. I had such high hopes after the last compression vest we purchased from here worked so well. Fun and Function response: We really apologize about that! We would like to issue you a return label to send to our product development team to figure how this happened. Please let me know if you would like a new vest or for us to issue you a refund.

    Not Quite Satisfied
    Verified Purchase
    I have an 11-year-old daughter who is very petite. I tried size M first and it was way too big. Fun & Function was extremely nice and helpful in returning it for a size S. I received the size S and it has to be at the very tightest adjustment possible to "hug" my daughter. She has trouble using it as school because she can't get it tight enough. It also does not create enough "hug" for her. So, not satisfied with the mesh vest, but I am going to try a weighted vest and see if that works better. Fun and Function response: We are happy to hear you were satisfied with our customer care! Please check out the size chart on this page for a more accurate idea of which size vest would be most suitable for your daughter - feel free to try out the XS. If you are still not satisfied with the hug/sizing please contact us so that we can arrange an exchange or refund for you.

    Stimming Gone!
    Verified Purchase
    My son, with Autism, had been stimming badly, and seemed to be all over the place. I heard about the meshvest from a friend, and decided to give it a try. the MINUTE I had it fastened on him, he stopped, sat down, and was soooooooooo calm. With the help of the x shaped chewy, the rubber brush thing, and now this vest, I know our days will be less overstimulated, happier, calmer, and run smoother!

    Pressure Mesh Vest
    We won one of these mesh pressure vest as part of a contest they did on Facebook. My son is 5 1/2 years old and has Asperger's and he's a very hot natured kiddo. In the summer here, temperatures soar into the 100's and higher, so getting a mesh vest has been a Godsend. His usual weighted compression vest is very thick and, while we love it, it makes him sweaty in the winter months, so the summer it's just unbearable for him. So unbearable, he refuses to wear it even when he needs it. This mesh pressure vest is very durable and sturdy, but cool and breezy. It fits him perfectly, even though he's small for his size, and he actually could wear it outside in the high temps. We are so thankful we got a chance to get this vest and look forward to using it for all those hot days in his future.

    Pressure Mesh Vest
    My son was gifted this Pressure Mesh Vest from Fun and Function this summer. My son really enjoys his vest when he is craving deep pressure. We've had the pressure tees before, but this vest works so much better. My favorite aspect of the vest is its fabric - mesh! In the summer in Texas, this vest is amazing. If he needs to wear it, he can still be as active as he needs to be while wearing it and not become over heated. This vest is also very easy to get on and off. I love it's design and highly recommend this vest for your child.

    Pressure Mesh Vest
    It was suggested to us by an OT that we look into getting a pressure vest for our son. We were thrilled to find that Fun and Function had a vest that not only provided deep pressure, but also provided the mesh support that would make wearing the vest in the south possible. The vest can be worn all day, but we use it most during intensive therapy to provide the sensory input that our son needs to maintain focus. Pressure is an effective tool for helping children with sensory processing challenges, and the vest ensures that our son pays attention when needed. We want him to get the most out of therapy and with this vest, he does. The Fun and Function mesh vest is also machine washable.

    Pressure Mesh Vest
    My 4 year old has Sensory Processing Issues. She has an especially difficult time calming down after stimulating activities. We were super excited to try this vest out. We call it her hugging vest and she knows it is to help calm her down. It is made especially well and since it is mesh it is extremely cool temperature wise to wear. No extra sweating with this vest. Easy to put on and a great fit. After we put it on my daughter we sit and talk while she does a quiet activity. It is really great. It gives her a gentle "hug" which helps give my daughter a calming feeling. A great vest and I would highly recommend it.

    What is the material of the inside part of the vest? Thanks
    Would this work for a teenager with anxiety?
    Would this mesh vest be too scratchy to wear directly on skin, as a bottom layer underneath school uniform?
    Can this vest be worn under clothing?
    Do you have any vests that just slip on over your head that have no straps or buckles, etc.
