At last, the warmer weather is here and we have just the t-shirts to make sure your wardrobe is ready for it.
Effortless style in a variety of designs, the Tabatha Tee is a daywear essential.
There is more to this tee than meet the eye though. Not only does it look and feel great, it is also easier to get on and off. We talk you through why our Tabatha Tee is so special:
1.) Option to avoid overhead dressing - all of our tees open all the way down the front so easier to dress and undress if getting arms above shoulders or fatigue prove an issue when dressing.
No fiddly fastenings – not only does the tee open at the front, it fastens with a premium quality Velcro that requires only a touch to close.
2.) Raglan sleeves – make getting arms into armholes easier giving extra room and allowing more movement. This also means our raglan sleeve tees are more comfortable to wear.
3.) Quality fabric – made in Portugal, known for it’s high standards in jersey. All tees are 100% cotton making them breathable and more comfortable to wear being soft against the skin. The fabrics used on our tees are quick drying and wash at 40 degrees making them easier to care for. Cool iron if required.
4.) Flattering fit – with a soft A line shape, this is a relaxed and effortless style that falls comfortably covering the waist area.
5.) Size vents - allow greater movement when worn and seated making more comfortable.
6.) Higher neckline - our tees have a flattering higher scooped neckline so they can be worn confidently.
7.) Colour coordinate armholes – make them easier to see and aim arm into especially for anyone with cognitive difficulties. Lime is for left and red for right to help prevent dressing back to front.
8.) VAT exemption – is applicable to anyone with a long term on chronic illness buying this style. Find out more on our VAT exemption pages here…
We have a choice of five designs for you to choose from. The only difficulty is deciding which one!

Left to right:
The Able Label is an innovative womenswear lifestyle clothing brand that designs all styles in house alongside Occupational Therapists and customers and make all our lovely jersey garments within Europe. The range of clothes allow easier dressing for those who like to look good but find high-street fashion too fiddly or awkward to wear. We appreciate that it's often the little things in life that can make the biggest difference so attention to detail is always at the heart of everything we do.
We help to overcome some of the day-to-day issues that can arise when dressing – independence, the desire to remain stylish and to maintain a sense of identity in spite of reduced dexterity and impaired mobility or cognitive skills.
Ease of Dressing
Our clothes have all specifically been designed to make dressing easier. This includes, colour coordinated internals making areas like armholes easier to find as well as touch fastening closures which require minimal strength and no over dressing. Why do we need fiddly button fastenings and to dress items over the head anyway?
All our fabrics and our garments are of the highest quality and made in Europe, with mills and factories known for their expertise in jersey.
All fabrics are machine washable at 40 degrees unless stated otherwise.
Our stylish and versatile clothes are timeless wardrobe essentials that are easy to outfit and can be worn season after season.
Trialled and Tested
Occupational Therapists and people who would benefit from wearing the clothes have all rigorously tested each style.
With all clothing specifically designed to make dressing easier, we are able to offer VAT relief to those it applies to. Find out if you are eligible for VAT relief here.

We have recently created a series of NEW short videos to visually help demonstrate exactly how The Able Label clothes can make dressing easier.
The videos showcase exactly how our garments have been redesigned with our unique ‘EasyFasten system’ to make them easier to dress into and out of. They also convey how discrete these adapted designs and hidden extras really are and how style is maintained throughout.
Our videos aim to help you can make a more informed decision as to whether specific items are suitable for you.
So without further a due, we will let the videos do the talking. See below a sample of The Able Label videos. All videos can be found on The Able Label You Tube Channel here. Alternatively, each of our product pages on theablelabel.com shows videos for that relevant product.
We hope you find them useful, Enjoy!
