Why We Love It

The Original Stretchy Weighted Vest

Our founder and occupational therapist Aviva couldn’t find a weighted compression vest for her kids, so she designed her own. This vest was our first Fun and Function product and it’s still one of our top sellers. It’s like a reassuring hug, perfect for helping to calm down, focus or cope with sensory overload. Slip removable weights into interior pockets and adjust the fit at shoulders and sides for a just-right sensory experience. The steady proprioceptive input and compression around the trunk are especially soothing for those with sensory challenges. With stretchy neoprene for a snug, comfy fit, and mesh sides for breathability, it's no wonder this vest is a best seller! 

  • Unisex design
  • Supports calm and focus for kids, teens and adults with ADHD, autism and sensory processing disorder
  • Made by Fun and Function
  • Ages 2-Adult

Getting Started

Measurements shown reflect size of the vest. To measure for width, lift arms slightly and measure around the chest. 

For a true compression fit we recommend choosing a vest that is 2"- 4” smaller than the wearer’s body circumference. Please note that the vest is meant to be very snug, though it should never be uncomfortable. If a snug fit isn't for you, choose a vest with a circumference that matches the wearer’s body. Note these vests are adjustable, so measurements don’t need to correspond exactly. When in doubt, it’s recommended to size up.

Black vest is 1" longer than other Weighted Compression Vests to accommodate Teen/Adult sizing. Weighted compression vests also available in red or blue (WR1809P) or with band, dolphin or peace graphics (WR4284P). Place weights into pockets based on your child's weight and preferences. Additional weights sold separately.                                                                        

Use with adult guidance. Never use to cover face or restrict child's movement. User should be able to remove weighted clothing without help. Follow the age and weight guidelines stated on the product insert. Do not allow user to sleep with weighted clothing. Use weighted products with guidance from a therapist. Weights should be carefully and gradually adjusted for each person's needs (10% of total body weight is a common standard. The total should never exceed 10-15% of total body weight).
