What to Wear Home After Having Breast Cancer Surgery

If you are recovering from a breast cancer-related surgery you'll want to make sure you don't pack anything to wear home from the hospital that you'll need to lift your arms over your head to put on. Rather opt for easy to take on or off clothes that are loose fitting, cozy tops, robes, and recovery Gownies™ that open from the front for ease and comfortable healing.

Since recovery can last anywhere from just a few days to several weeks, you'll want to plan ahead to avoid any uncomfortable moments. During recovery from a mastectomy or lumpectomy, our Gownies™ recovery wear line of apparel will help to to heal in comfort with our soft, comfortable all natural cotton fabric that will not irritate incisions and comfrtably manage surgical drains with built-in internal pockets. Some of our most popular recovery wear options are:

Recovery Robes 

There is something about wearing a robe that makes you feel feminine, and comfortable, in your home. Robes are that intimate friend in your closet. You can wear your Gownies™ robe to the for your chemo sessions because of the convenience of the front opening or wear your recovery robe post-surgery at home. Gownies™ recovery robes not only keep you cozy, covered, and warm they also give you the functionality and accessibility you need.

Recovery Pajamas

Whether staying for an extended period of time in the hospital or recovering from breast cancer surgery at home you'll want to be sure your pajamas are easy to put on, feature front opening, and has drain management pockets.

While there are different types of surgical drains, the type used most often for breast surgeries is the Jackson-Pratt drainage system. How long you’ll have your Jackson-Pratt drain depends on your specific type of breast surgery and the amount of drainage you’re having.
