Looks like regular clothing!This is the second time I have purchased this vest. It works well for my 5 year old and the fit is great. It looks like regular clothing rather than a therapeutic support so the other kids don't even notice. The only problem I have with it is that is doesn't stand up to washing even when you air dry so I only gave it 4 stars.Read MoreLove it!The student I bought this vest for loves it! The quality is very good and I like that it has Velcro at the sides so it can be tightened. The stretch in the fabric is also very nice.Read MoreIntolerable SmellWas looking forward to trying this vest as my child responded well to compression vests in past. However, the strong, chemical smell of this product was overwhelmingly noxious. It is made in China and washing instructions state it is not machine washable. The odor remained after airing it out for days. Great concept but there is no way my sensory sensitive child could ever wear this. Fun and Function response: Thank you for your feed back. None of our products should have a chemical smell. Please contact us so that we can send you out a new one at no expense to yourself. We may request to have your vest sent back to us, to have our product development team take a look at it.Read MoreGreat designI love the zipper-front. So much easier for on/off. Also the vest is a bit more stylish for kids who are sensitive about that. I wish it would hold more weight (additional pockets to add your own) because I added additional weights from our old F&F vest and it is sort of bulky where the weights go even though my kiddo loves the extra weight. I'm also not sure about the sizing. My 56 lb., 48 inch tall, 6 year old is almost too tall for the small. It's just made short.Read MoreCalm and relaxedThis has helped provide sensory balance at key times of our day, which in turn is allowing more peace and fun:)Read MoreFeels Like a HugThis is the stylish vest that hugs! My kids love the feel of it across their trunk and they love the denim look too! Fits like a real vest!Read MoreAdorableThis is such a great idea! Our child can choose the amount of pressure because the sides adjust and yet the stretch denim gives variable pressure and the kids love it!Read More
