Recovery Front Opening Shirt
The front opening t-shirt is the best “nightie” for the first night at home after a mastectomy/lumpectomy/breast reconstruction surgery, and your best friend when you want something to wear during the day that will fit over the bandages and accommodate the drain bulbs. Be sure to order one size larger than usual, as the sizes are small sizes.
Front opening, easy to get into and out of
Long enough to use as a nightie when you find it hard to lift your arms
Use during the day when you need something to wear that fits over the bandages
Does not look medicinal
"Recently I purchased 2 shirts and had my mastectomy 12/16. Your shirts are perfect.
I was able to position the pockets for my drain where I needed them, not where someone
else pre-sewed them. I love the long length and being able to choose where to start snapping
and where to stop. Thank you for the enclosed note; it was nice to have too."
Pockets for the surgery drain bulbs (comes with 2 pockets, extra pockets can be purchased in the mastectomy gift ideas section)
Snaps are easy to open and close
Colors are cheery and 12 to choose from
Easy to wash
Not a large extra mastectomy expense
