Collection: Women's Adaptive Pants

As our bodies change, everyday tasks, like getting dressed, that were once routine might now seem like chores or even unattainable to manage on our own. For some, dressing can be stressful, painful, time consuming, and even undignified. Stressed-out dressing is no way for anyone to start or end anyone’s day. That’s why at Joe & Bella, we’re working to make dressing easy. Designed to effortlessly complement any outfit, our women’s adaptive pants can help make dressing easy again so seniors can focus on what truly matters—enjoying life to the fullest.

Our Women's Adaptive Pants are here to redefine the dressing experience for older adults and people with disabilities. Crafted with both fashion and functionality in mind, these pants ensure that every day starts easier. Pants with side zippers make dressing in a seated and prone position simpler and safer.

Joe & Bella offers three unique styles of women’s adaptive pants. Each style offers a different look and features. CareZips®, our most casual pant, uses soft, lightweight fabric for all-day and all-night comfort. CareZips® includes two waist-to-knee zippers and a third inseam zipper – which makes changing incontinence products easier and allows for easier access to catheters and colonoscopy bags. Everyday Side Zip Pants are in the style of elevated “athleisure,” with upgraded and warmer fabric, a smooth waistband, and two waist-to-knee zippers. Freedom Chinos offer our most polished look. A tapered leg and a smooth front waistband make these a great choice for social and business occasions. With waist-to-ankle zippers, Freedom Chinos provide the largest side openings of the three styles, making this pant a great choice for independent dressers and wheelchair users.

Features of Adaptive Pants for Senior Women

Side Zippers for Easy Wear

All three styles of Joe & Bella’s women’s adaptive pants include two side zippers secured at the waist with easy-to-use snaps. By opening up the pant with zippers, it’s so much easier to either step in and pull them up, or to get dressed from a seated or even prone position. The large opening means there’s less tension around the body as the pants are pulled up and you won’t ever need to squeeze, struggle, or shimmy to get in them. The long zippers on CareZips® and Everyday Side-Zipper Pants open from the waist to the knee. The zippers fully open to the ankle on our Freedom Chinos. And the zipper can be used in both directions, making it easy to change pants even with shoes on.

Stylish and Modern Designs

It’s so important that women’s adaptive pants look and feel like other pants that someone really likes to wear. That’s why Joe & Bella’s easy-access pants for women are crafted from premium fabric with a modern fit. Freedom Chinos include a polished and tapered leg. CareZips® and Everyday Side-Zip Pants feature a modern silhouette and premium fabric with a relaxed fit.

Stretch Fabric for Comfort

We carefully sourced the most ideal fabric for each of our pants to balance comfort and aesthetics. All of our pants feature stretch fabric to provide you with freedom of movement and all-day comfort. In fact, CareZips® and Everyday Side Zips are so comfortable, you might want to wear them as pajamas!

Ergonomic Fit

We design our pants with an ergonomic fit. Since many folks who wear Joe & Bella women’s adaptive pants spend a significant amount of time in a seated position, we designed the pants to be both comfortable and aesthetically pleasing while seated. So we raised the seat of the pants, which prevents them from riding up in the back and bunching up in front.


While we firmly believe that living with a physical disability is a normal part of life, we understand that not everyone wants clothes that look “adaptive.” So we’ve carefully designed our adaptive features to be as discreet as possible. All the zippers and zipper pulls on our women’s adaptive pants are dyed the exact color of the fabric, seamlessly blending in.
