If you’re looking for a long, elegant dress that does not have a lot of wide skirt to contend with then the ‘RUBY Clement Tiered Dress’ is for you.
On the RUBY model, the sleeves are sinched in as they are elasticated, they were styled wider on our model, but the elasticated sleeves give you the option to do either. The elastic cuffs also mean the sleeve won’t interfere with your mobility as you push your chair – and as the above description says, elasticated sleeves mean the dress has some room and movement, making it easier to get on and off.
If you’re sitting down in a wheelchair while wearing this dress, we’d advise that you arrange the hem of the skirt on your footplate, so it doesn’t drag or sit in a way that could damage or dirty the fabric.
The button at the centre back of the top of the dress is reachable for some with the ability to reach behind their head and do up buttons without looking, however for some this button might be a dexterity struggle, we’d recommend it would be easier to get help to do up this small clasp, than struggle. We wouldn’t let this deter you from the dress, because it’s a small detail to an otherwise rather accessible item.
