Do they have "cool" neoprene vests??

As in "cool" for keeping them cool (weather) and "cool" as in not looking so..... goofy??  Like maybe more "super hero" -ish??  I know that sounds very bad--but thinking of how crappy other kids are in public and the issues DS1 already has and I try to protect him whenever I can --and this is one of those cases I think I can.

I'm not looking for weight, just looking for the compression.

  • FWIW, our OT recommended a tight swim shirt for Drew for compression today. She said they are tight enough (get one size smaller) that they will do the trick and they have characters on it so he can wear it normally and are thin enough you can put a shirt over it. They are what she recommends most of the time. 

    For your question I have no clue.

  • The one we have come in blue, black & pink. If he's doing a vest, it is usually under clothes anyways but DS likes his blue suit. They are breathable & he was fine in it last summer. We also have a suit (pants/shirt) but I usually put him in the vest if its really hot. We call it his "super hero suit" so he thinks it's pretty cool. If you're crafty you could definitely sew a characters patch onto an existing suit.

    Where did you get his vest?  The one he uses now is at school--and so we don't actually have one at home--and I really think he needs it because apparently it does work while at school.
