Don't put your boys in Sweatpants anymore, They deserve to dress like anyone else does. If the boys want jeans then put them in jeans, if they want those shorts, swimsuit anything, it can be theirs, with the help of Buddy Bottoms (that is what I call them now). These Buddy Bottoms have resolved the issue of pants for our boys, if you want to know more just let me know. I can alter them for you or buy the size you need and then alter them. I just need a size and we can get to work on them.
I have been altering my boys pants to make it easier to use urinals, it helps like you will not believe.
I can put snaps or velcro in place of zipper, but zipper works the best in my opinion.

How did you alter his pants? Does he wear jeans or sweatpants?

Hi Tanya,

Thank you for the message. I would love to know what I can do to make it easier for Jason to be able to use the urinal. We have not had much success with it so far.

I alter pants for people. I put a zipper in the crotch of whatever pants people send me. I do this for a $15.00 fee for each pair. They send them to me I alter them and send them back to them.

They wear Jeans, they hate sweat pants. I put a zipper in the crotch.. I do this for a $15.00 fee per pair, for friends and other people I know. They usually will send me their pants I alter them and then send them back.

Dear Tanya

We are still fortunatly not at that stage, I would however like to know how you sizing works in USA, I will them measure up our boys and if you could supply the pants and modify them, it would be a waste of money for us to send pants all the way there and then you send them all the way back. I also think we have a few of the same brands you may have in the US, if you could give me the brands you use, I will try and find them here. I can then fit them on our children and send the size for you to modify and ship to us. I have recently being invited back onto the Muscular dystrophy foundation here, and I am sure we could get a few customers that are in need of this inovation already here in SA.

I have thought of exactly what it sounds like you have done, but not progressed in the prototype. I also thought of attaching "lifting points" to the pants for the hoist so that you could lift them up, and if the lifting points are in the correct place on the pants, with correctly sized lifting rope, they would be in the perfect position to sit on the toilet. A little work would have to be done on the attaching points so it can pick them up with no risk of tearing. I think I will try a pair of denim jeans for myself and send you a sample, for my own children I would have no problem in my design, but it should maybe be approved by a standards authority in the USA.

Good luck with your design, I hope the members will support you in your design.
I have decided to call these pants. Buddy Bottoms any comments??? Let me know.
tell me what do you do let us know
I am getting the design patented. I put zippers, in the crotch of the pants. Some have requested that I put a zipper from the inside of one pants leg all the around to the other side, so that they can just zip them away from the center. I do this to shorts, sweat pants, jeans every pair of pants my boys have. It make the urinal use alot more dignified for them. You can email me about this at my personal address TanyaTreas@aol.com I will show you pics at that time.
Thank you.
Hi Tanya,
I am dealing with that same issue. My oldest son is using his scooter at school all the time. He does not go to the bathroom all day. So I need to alter his clothes so he can use the urinal at school without any help. This is an anwser I was looking for, Thank you so much.
Hi Tanya. Thank you for this, I am battling to find the right type of shorts for Kevin to wear. It is so difficult, the sports type are the best as they are not long, the ones that go down to the knees are not working anymore. You idea is brilliant, thanks for this, it will help many people. Love Jo
Being someone with DMD I thing extending the original zipper would be better. It would have allowed me to urinate unassisted when I had the ability to do so.
I alter the crotch for them. I have even started altering hoodie and shirts too.
