What Not To Wear
Every fashionable reader of antiquated etiquette books knows that with the passing of Labor Day, the white shoes and white handbags must be put into storage, and the ermines and sables brought out.
With this in mind, we wish to make a few suggestions about what paraplegics will not be wearing this fall (as modeled by the maniac author of this blog.)
Custom corsetry has its place, but the well dressed paraplegic no longer desires the firm embrace of his Thoraco-Lumbar Sacral Orthosis Device.
Shirts may be worn tucked in, and the fashionable patient eschews the constant wearing of a long sleeved button down shirt to coordinate with his brace.
Likewise, the Air Casts which once supported ankles are no longer wanted. White after Labor Day really is a faux pas!
Rugged hickory canes offer a fresh alternative to last season's four pronged models.
Unfetter yourself! Abdominal binding is now a thing of the past.
Walkers are tossed aside in favor of this season's fresh, light and sparkly wheelchairs. Why shuffle when you can roll?
Socks replace Air Casts, which after a months of active use seem worn and dreary to all eyes.
Ugg Boots, which seemed so fresh once upon a time, are tossed aside.
Ankles are stronger, now, and fashions reflect this trend.
This fall only the most behind-the-times will be sporting furry bed-boots!
