Fast drying, figure hugging and a joy to not iron, lycra (R) has revolutionised my laundry life. There are potentially even greater benefits though, with the use of lycra suits being promoted for children with cerebral palsies.
What may at first seema great idea (tighter trunk muscles with a flexible corset) soon turns to lavartorial distress as their ease of disgorgement is not always as great as the more common cotton poppered vest. And their cost is considerably more than a pack of three undershirts from George. So is there enough evidence to ‘prescribe’ lycra clothing as a medical aid, like hernia supports and wigs for my big ‘uns on chemo?
