The actual bear hug vests range from 75-250 online so I adapted an idea I found online to make him one myself. The idea suggested using a $5 neoprene waist slimmer belt from Walmart but when I got there to buy it I found something that is even better for a small guy like Mason -
a two pack of thigh slimmers (also neoprene) by Gold's gym.
It makes for a very custom fit and seems to work well! Just wanted to pass this idea along since it was so easy and inexpensive...much more accessible than the pro versions and does basically the same thing. Those of you who sew better (not me!!) could really make it cute too...

but this sitting thing is gonna take
a lot of practice before i will agree to do it
