The Perfect Sweater for Winter

I have lived in the southern United States all of my life. Thankfully, the state I live in doesn’t usually experience much harsh, cold weather during the winter months; however, I do need to bundle up in something warm when heading outside from time to time. Oftentimes, I reach for my favorite sweater. The versatile sweater I’m referring to is a leopard print, cashmere cardigan. I absolutely love the way cashmere feels against my skin. I adore this soft sweater because I can wear it to the grocery store, to church, to the movies, or even to a holiday gathering. On this blog, I hope you will discover the winter clothing staples that look great with any type of outfit. Enjoy!

Convenient And Fashionable Clothing And Accessories Designed For Diabetics

A diagnosis of diabetes can be frightening and confusing. There are so many things to learn about proper diet, exercise and healthcare. During the discussion of medical equipment and prescriptions, it is easy to forget there are other items that can assist people by making them more comfortable, and healthier. Clothing, shoes and accessories are available for diabetics to help carry pumps, improve circulation and more.

Protecting the Feet

  • Socks

Diabetic socks are one of the most important accessories people can purchase. The seamless socks are designed to fit snugly against the foot to prevent sagging and wrinkling that could cause irritation to the skin. The material is breathable and moisture wicking to keep feet dry and prevent infection if there is an injury to the foot. They are also made to be warmer than an average sock, to counteract the coldness many people experience due to reduced circulation. Cushioned diabetic socks for women help to reduce injuries to the bottom of the foot.

  • Shoes

Shoes that are appropriate for diabetics are available in a variety of styles. There is dress, casual and work-related footwear as well as slippers. Like the socks they are designed to fit snugly, and are made without seams that could irritate the skin. A padded sole protects the foot, while the design is made to allow orthotic insoles to be added, if needed. The roomy design prevents toes from being crowded. Many styles offer Velcro closures so they are easy to take on and off and can be adjusted as needed.

Storing Insulin Pumps

  • Undergarments

Stylish boxers, bikinis and briefs are available, as well as bras, that have built-in pockets for storing an insulin pump. The bottoms are made to fit comfortably, and not sag once the pump is in place. The bras also have a built in pocket, typically along the band under the arm or tucked into the front near the shoulder.

  • Pump Bands

It is not necessary to replace all undergarments or wear specially designed clothing every day. Another option are pump bands. They can be bought to wear around the waist or thigh and come in a number of sizes, colors and patterns. Bands are available for men, women and children. The bands fit securely, so they can be worn at any time, even while exercising or engaging in sports.

Having diabetes does not mean people want to give up on looking their best. Diabetic clothing is often indistinguishable from traditional garments, because the manufacturers have carefully designed the items to make them functional and trendy. They clothing can make daily life a little more convenient and comfortable for those who need them, and the footwear may improve health and safety as well.
