Zip-Up Undershirts: Adaptive & Compression

Heya Charles,

Good to hear from you buddy and thanks for your question!

If you’re looking for a zip, velcro closer, or button-up undershirts, I’d recommend seeking out “adaptive” clothing.

Here’s an article I wrote a while back about adaptive undershirts.

I don’t know if any of them close in the front, but you can poke around and see if some of them do.

Besides that, the only other undershirts with zippers that I know are compression undershirts.

Most of them are tank top style, though.

They either have a zipper on the front or the side in order to zip them up the side to the armhole opening.

Here is one compression tank top undershirt with a zipper in the front (link), also pictured below.


You can easily google “compression shirt zipper”, without the quotes, and you should find some options if you’re ok with a compression zip-up undershirts.

Last but not least, you could likely get a seamstress to install a zipper in a couple of your undershirts.

That is – if you can’t find anything that meets your exact needs. (:

If you’re looking for a regular (outer) shirt, like a button-up shirt, you should check out this men’s dress shirt, called MagnaReady (link).

It looks like a regular button-up dress shirt. However, it uses magnets to close the shirt.

Hope it helps buddy!
