    WheelsOfSteel Eddie, if you're looking for elasticated waist trousers, many high street online stores (what an oxymoron!!) do them and they're not tracky bottoms. H&M probably have the widest range and, of course, the mega marketplace has lots, just watch Amazon's sizes. xx

    I haven't had any luck with shoes as I hate buying on line too. I just bought a pair of size 8 calf length boots with full length zips to go over my swollen size 5 feet. I can't stand or walk so it's not a problem. They make me look dressed and keep my feet warm ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Good luck x

    I appreciate the thought, but I was ideally after something a bit smarter than tracky bottoms.
    ...and you wouldn't want to see me in leggings
    I keep seeing internet ads for velcro boots that look OK, but I hate ordering shoes on-line. May just have to bite the bullet...

    Beware velcro as your hands get weaker it gets harder to use.

    Not sure about shoes...but for clothing how about track suit bottoms?

    Accessible Clothes

    Hiya. I am still mobile, so I need to get dressed to go out. However, the progressive weakness in my hands is starting to make things like trouser buttons and shoelaces tricky. I want to look for more "accessible" clothes - things like elastic waist trousers and wide opening velcro-fastened shoes.
    Can anyone recommend any particular suppliers / shops / websites before I go and trawl the entire internet for such things.
    Cheers Gang!
