Snow suit needed for child with dislocated hips!

I am a bit stuck at the minute as I have a child who has dislocated hips and is permanently in a hip brace. We live in the North East where temperatures are well below minus currently. My daughter has been in a hip cast/brace for the last two years and is finally digging her heels in about being physically restrained in the brace. She is rebelling and won't keep on a hat, gloves or a scarf much to my anxiety!

I have scoured the shops and internet for an all in one, warm snow suit, but the only ones I can find available are for smaller children. She is two but it would have to be a bit bigger probably to accommodate the brace...has anyone else experienced the same thing or can anyone point me in the right direction where I might find one?

Thanks a lot
