    tuxedo & quads

    in near future I have to participate to a big event and i hink i have to wear a tuxedo costume.

    I'm asking the quads or those with big belly and w/c users. How do you choose a tuxedo? Do you have any tips(or pictures) for me?

    Check out renting or buying a Eton (or Spencer style) jacket style tux. They fit much better when sitting in a wheelchair. They are sometimes available at uniform stores as they are often marketed to waiters or maitre d's

      last tux I wore, i had to bury my dad and be the best man for a friend in the same day, but that was back in 1982 before my quad belly got big, so i just had a regular tux, hopefully won't need to wear another one anything soon, good luck and let us know what you find out

        The few times I have worn a tux, I rented one. If you have access to a good rental place, they will likely have several options. I was surprised at how many different styles there are. I am 6'2" but wore a short jacket to fit better in the chair. The style the nurse suggested looks like it will work better, but it reminds me of a waiter in a high class restaurant.

        I liked the cummer buns. They helped my hypotension.

            I was going to say that I spelled it that way to see if you were watching. lol However, South Carolinians would think you were talking about a heavy metal group or something if you said "cumber band." If you rent tuxes in Charleston, you have to deal with Gullah accents. Anyhow, this is what I wore:
