Tips for Preparing Your Post Mastectomy Wardrobe

Tips for Preparing Your Post Mastectomy Wardrobe

mastectomy robe
If you’ve received a diagnosis of breast cancer and are facing a mastectomy, you have a lot on your mind. It’s important to plan for your post-surgery wardrobe. You aren’t alone. We’re here to help you find the garments that are right for you after the surgery. Here’s what we recommend to include in your mastectomy wardrobe:
  • A comfortable, loose-fitting shirt that opens down the front for doctor’s appointments.
  • Find a soft and comfy bathrobe that doesn’t fit too tight. You’ll need to accommodate drains following the surgery.
  • Surgical socks which promote blood flow in the lower legs.
  • Post-surgical garments which have pockets to accommodate the drains. Some camisoles even have zippers in front for easy access to surgical sites.
  • Chemo hats to fit your style and panache.
  • Comfortable clothes which are easy to put on and take off.
  • Surgical bras and compression sleeves designed especially for women who have gotten out of surgery.
  • Choose natural fabrics, such as cotton and silk. These materials feel nice against your tender skin and allow the pores to breathe. Silk also has moisture-wicking properties that keep you cooler.
  • Just because you’ve had a mastectomy doesn’t mean you can’t look and feel your best in any activity. We carry a full line of clothes and garments which facilitate healing and accommodate your changing body. The mastectomy swimwear we stock is designed to support a breast prosthesis to let you enjoy the ocean or your pool any time you choose.
