Has your personal space ever felt a little too “personal?” This year at the Consumer Electronics Show, designer Anouk Wipprecht debuted the Spider Dress. The spider’s “legs” extend out to protect the wearer sensing threats either based off the breathing patterns of the person wearing it or if someone approaches too quickly.
Sometimes as women with alopecia, we are approached by others who feel it is ok to rub our heads or get in our personal space in a way that isn’t socially acceptable for people with hair, similarly to how people feel it’s ok to rub a pregnant woman’s belly… even if that woman is a complete stranger!
