    Hi Zoe, check out the spinekids.com site. Lots of kids there. You'll find some dressing tips here too if you look around.

    Shirts with hoods are great. You can even find short sleeve shirts with hoods out these days.

    Red face clothing tips

    Hi, am Nicole and I have scoliosis. Im sorry this post is so late I just became a member and am trying to find someone to talk to on here but no one likeuses the website any more, but anyway here are some tips.

    - Where loose bigger shirts that arent to big on top.

    - During the summer where shorts that are tight up top so they wont droop down.

    -if you are cold but hot during the winter throw your favorite sweatshirt on.


    If you have any more questions you can ask because ive had scoliosis for like 3 or 2 years now or more.
