    ASOS has been making headlines for all the best reasons lately: the e-tailer recently decided to stop selling cashmere, silk and mohair, and used a curve model who championed body positivity.

    Now the brand has collaborated with a Para Athlete to create a wheelchair-friendly jumpsuit for the first time ever.

    Chloe Ball-Hopkins worked with the design team after having a bad experience at a rainy music festival, as she wanted a casual but fun jumpsuit that people in wheelchairs could easily wear.

    The result? A waterproof jumpsuit with a front-pocked where you can store your phone, a zip around the middle to separate the jacket and trousers. the hem is also longer at the back to stop it from riding up, and you can also adjust the cuffs.

    Ball-Hopkins told the BBC, ‘It was just literally those little tiny details that make the difference to people like me. We don’t want to have to look like we’re just doing practicality, we still want to be able to look fashionable.’

    After sharing the news on Twitter, she was bombarded with message praising her and ASOS for not only creating an inclusive suit, but featuring her in the campaign too.

    It’s a small move but a positive one, and hopefully more brands will follow. You can shop it using the above link.
