dc.description.abstract[EMBARGOED UNTIL 5/1/2024] Background of the Study: People with Disabilities (PWDs) Everyday, the majority of the world starts their day by getting dressed. Clothing serves a variety of purposes for each individual. For some, clothing is simply for personal protection, comfort, and security. For others, their dress is a specifically selected set of symbols to represent aspects of their personality, group affiliation, or self-image (Chang, 2014; Lennon et. al., 2017). Having suitable clothing that meets the needs of an individual can help increase their inclusion into societal groups and their confidence (Lennon et al., 2017). For the over one billion people with disabilities (PWDs) living worldwide, clothing that meets their physiological and psychological needs is simply not available or accessible (Chang et al., 2009; Suri, 2016; Kosinski et al., 2018). Further, the ready-to-wear (RTW) options for people with disabilities (PWDs) are limited in the mass-market apparel marketplace (Carroll, 2015).eng
