Is the MonarchUNDER™ like a regular undershirt?
Absolutely NOT! It is so much more. Since this base garment hugs and protects the skin, we insist on using only the most comfortable and highest quality fabrics. In addition, the design of this highly technical top requires extra skill and care in the manufacturing process.
What makes the Monarch Clothing System unique and better than other adaptive clothing options?
Our 2-part top guarantees that one’s body will be protected and covered at ALL times with no gaping or bunching of excess fabric. It makes both the caregiver’s and wearer’s life easier since it is also so much easier to put on. Why can’t a comfortable and functional garment be beautiful too? No reason. Our fashions are current, fun and designed to make you look AND feel your best. Click here for a look at the features of a Monarch top.
Why aren’t Monarch’s clothes as cheap as other adaptive clothes?
It’s true, Monarch’s clothes aren’t cheap. That’s because we want to provide you with good looking clothes that will last. We didn’t want to simply copy what the competition was doing, so we invested considerable time in research and development to come up better, patented designs. You’ll find that we use better fabrics that wick away moisture and help regulate body temperature, and you’ll be pleased at how well your Monarch pieces stand up in even heavy duty laundry machines. We’re proud to say that Monarch clothes are made in Canada, adhering to ethical labour and sustainability practices.
Monarch believes that when you are wearing comfortable clothes and you look good – you feel better! Better than what? Better than when you weren’t wearing Monarch!

Commitment to Protecting the Earth
Absolutely! We embrace social and environmental health within our organization and with our partners.
How do we do that? We look for products that are processed in an environmentally respectful way.
Our MonarchUNDER is made of TENCEL™ Modal branded fibers. This fabric offers a natural comfort and it is also a choice that aligns with Monarch’s values. TENCEL™ Modal is manufactured in an environmentally-responsible production process and it is certified as compostable and biodegradable.
Even the buttons on our Jackie MonarchOVER are made from Corozo, a nut also known as vegetable ivory. Corozo nuts are a renewable resource and although strong and durable, are also completely biodegradable. While being respectful of the environment, using these buttons on the MonarchOVER also helps support the local economy and the Amazon forest.
Monarch is careful to manage its manufacturing process closely and limit waste. If we have left over fabric, we use it in the prototyping of new products! And we encourage our customers to donate their well-maintained adaptive clothing to those in need if they no longer require it.
Currently our clothing is all made in Canada, a country known for its fair labour laws. As we grow, we know we will have to supplement the Canadian production with manufacturing from other countries and will ensure we only source from manufacturers where their people are treated and paid fairly. And where they care as much about their environment as Monarch and its customers do!
