Sensory Stories # 29: Clothing – choosing your shoes, hats and jackets

Posted: 28 April, 2022

By: Marieta du Toit


Marieta continues Annemarie’s discussion about clothing choices and shares her perspective as a sensory root.

As a sensory avoider, Marieta prefers less sensory input because that keeps her calmer, more comfortable and focused. She explains her clothing preferences from a sensory threshold point of view including minimal layering, monotone colours and simple patterns.
