However i know there is an age difference but girls will be girls!
    my front castors have LEDs in them so they light up when i roll. also, bikes have LEDs that go onto valve stems, so u can add those for more color/visibility. it really helps for night time.

    I think if you wear your jeans/sweats or whatever loose or too baggy then yeah things are going to shift or slide down. I wear my jeans tighter and I also use a belt so they don't slide down when transfering.

    MEM makes a good point about the broomstick style skirts. I wound up in the parking lot in my underwear, full on, b/c a full skirt got wrapped around a caster. I can stand, so had to stand up, step out of skirt, swivel and sit down in van. I wear dresses or skirts ~ 90% of the time, but they have to be fairly fitted to stay out of my casters. Dresses are great b/c they don't fall down. Elastic-waisted skirts do, and buttons or zippers on skirts make it tough for a quad to dress. Nothing can be easier than throwing on some undergarments and a dress. I like knee-to-midcalf length dresses with boots, myself. That eliminates the skinny-leg worry and the flashing worry, all at once. BUT I know I'm 50 years old and far from trendy. I always wore dresses, they've been my preference forever. Jeans feel like medieval torture b/c I'm used to not being bound in any way.

    I'm w/ MEM about 3/4 length sleeves and not purchasing blouses that won't go over my hands when buttoned, as well. I like inexpensive leather jackets, they work as wheelchair gloves in a pinch. For winter, I like nice cashmere sweaters I buy cheap on ebay. They always look nice, and just have an aura of luxury that I enjoy.

    in winter here i have these fleece things that go up over my elbow, so i can put them over a sweater and not worry about salt n junk. scotch guard is my friend against road smudge on my clothes (i have a weird tendency to rub my forearms against my thighs) i hate wearing gloves but i have calluses where i need them. i dont like skirts as they make transfers super hard. i usually grab the pant leg to move my legs into position, can do that with a skirt. and i put my keys between my legs (held by my cute plushie, willis!) so, if i put him between my legs while wearing a skirt it looks hilarious (he is protecting my dignity! lol) i also have floating hips, so i wear my jeans slightly tight and this holds my hips in place, skirts dont so i feel all loose and unstable. but to each his own. it's about finding what you like

    I recently saw a commercial on TV that Depend makes protective underwear that has prints and pastel colors on it. These might make her feel less self-conscious.

    As far as the pants go, I always use pants that have an elastic waistband. They hide the diaper waist material easily, and they are easy to get up and down for when you have to cath. I found that the St. Johns Bay line that's sold at JC Penney are really well made.

    It does not matter if they have rainbows and kittens and butterflies, a Depends is a Depends.

    They make boxers for boys and girls now -- I've seen everything from Spongebob to Hello Kitty in the stores. Trendy and can be worn over things.
