I’m trying make my closet more sensory safe and was thinking of getting compression clothing, weighted clothing or something thin but sensory safe to wear under stuff? Have any of these helped for any of you guys and do you have any brand/fabric type suggestions?

      I can tell you that copper fit stuff makes me want to crawl out of my skin (bad), but as for anything else I'm in the same boat as you looking for compression stuff.

      I don't know about real compression shirts because I wear a binder and that's plenty of squeezing but I like arm warmers (the smooth synthetic cooling ones for gardening, I tried the stripy emo/scene kind made of cotton or something but they're really hot and itchy) for extra compression. and the weighted vests in adult sizes are all at least 100 dollars but you could get a regular vest with pockets and put something heavy in them like a bunch of pennies or a hammer. Also I wear athletic/swim shirts under my regular shirt sometimes, they're stretchy and sometimes come with thumb holes

      I buy most of my clothes based on how soft they are so nothing itchy or irritating touches my skin. I've worn corsets for compression & loved them. Also compression socks can now be found in fun patterns.

Some users have suggested trying seamless compression socks or switching to compression stockings, which can feel more comfortable and "huggy." Jomi compression thigh-high stockings were recommended as a comfortable option available on Amazon. For sensory-safe clothing, you could consider wearing cotton pants underneath fabrics that bother your skin, such as denim, to create a buffer between your body and the material.
