How to Put on Garments
For bodysuits, shirts, or leggings
Step into the garment one leg at a time. Gently pull up the garment to the body. Align the crotch opening as you pull the garment up. Close the hooks one by one and/or zip the zipper until the garment is fully in place, as applicable. Last step is to pull up and adjust the shoulder straps.
For bras or vests
Slide each arm into the arm holes or sleeves. Close the hook and eyes and/or zipper in front, use the middle row or the most comfortable setting to start. You can adjust to find the most comfortable position. After adjusting the front close, adjust the shoulder straps to be even and the most comfortable position.
For face masks
Place chin in the chin cup (located with the vertical seam). Close the hook-and-loop closure over the head about 2" behind the forehead. Close the hook-and-loop closure behind the neck.
For arm or calf sleeves
Open the garment at the widest part and pull open to slide in your foot or hand. Gently pull up the arm or calf and ensure sleeve is smooth and evenly stretched on the limb.
