Children need to feel they fit in with everyone around them! This vest is fashionable and no one even knows it provides the weight it does to help a child who may need weights for calming. - Debbie Kissel, Special Needs Product Director at Fun and Function
Ask your occupational therapist about weights and wear times for best results. Weights should be carefully and gradually adjusted for each person's needs. Small and Medium vests can hold up to 6 lbs. and Large and X-Large vests can hold up to 9 lbs. (5% of total body weight is a common standard. The total should never exceed 10-15% of total body weight.)
Small: Includes two 1/4 lb. shoulder weights, two 1/2 lb. torso weights and four 1/4 lb. torso weights for a total of 2.5 lbs. Holds up to 6 lbs.
Medium: Includes two 1/2 lb. shoulder weights, two 1/2 lb. torso weights and four 1/4 lb. torso weights for a total of 3 lbs. Holds up to 6 lbs.
Large: Includes two 1/2 lb. shoulder weights, two 1/2 lb. torso weights and four 1/4 lb. torso weights for a total of 3 lbs. Holds up to 9 lbs.
X-Large: Includes two 2/3 lb. shoulder weights, two 1/2 lb. torso weights and four 1/4 lb. torso weights for a total of ~3.33 lbs. Holds up to 9 lbs.

Great product, runs smallGreat product and has really helped my son in school. He loves wearing it. Definitely runs very small, though. He's 9 and tall but slim (usually wears a 10/12) so I ordered the XL and we might be able to finish the school year before he outgrows it. Wish it came in an even larger size!Read MoreNice, seems to run smallThis is a nice vest, especially nice to have the shoulder weight option. The fur is soft and pleasant for a child sensitive to texture. My tall but thin (48 inch, 45 lbs) 6 year old wears the medium (5-6) and it just fits and is barely long enough, so if you have an average to larger boned child or one who is tall, I'd recommend sizing up to get a longer use out of it. Comes with a good amount of weights. It has really helped my son stay calm and he likes it very much, and I will buy a larger one when this is outgrown. I would recommend it!Read MoreMy kids fight over thisWe have one zebra vest and one navy one and my kids love them. They are calmer when they wear them and they feel so good because they look good too. It is so appreciated to have therapeutic products that look great. Thank you!Read More
Answered QuestionsCan you please provide clothing care instructions. The other slim fit denim vest had complaints that it did not hold-up to machine washing. Thus, detail on whether this is wash safe or dry clean safe would be useful.Priscilla Velasquez / Jun 22, 2016We have a blue size chart link in the middle of the product page for each of our vests. The size chart can help you measure to know what size would fit best.
