The Recovery Shirt by healincomfort
Real post op equipment designed specifically
so you can heal in comfort!
The Recovery Shirt, a patented design created by a breast cancer survivor, eases patient recovery from painful upper body surgeries. The shirt will prove helpful for your post op recovery, doctor visits, radiation, chemo, sleeping and day-wear. This shirt supplies the missing piece in the recovery puzzle. Now there’s a way to heal in comfort and dignity.
‘Soft as Feathers’ Moisture Managing Material
Your Recovery Shirt is constructed with loving care, and containing key patented features aiding in recovery, this garment’s material was specially chosen to feel as soft as feathers against sensitive, healing skin. Its moisture absorbing material keeps you both dry and comfortable.
Because movement after surgery may be limited, and maneuvering buttons can be a painful challenge, each post-op recovery shirt is fashioned with Velcro-like fasteners for ease of dressing.
4 Internal Drain Concealing Pockets
If you return home with drainage tubes post-surgery, how do you effectively and painlessly manage them? Healincomfort founder and shirt designer, Cherie B. Mathews, discovered after her double mastectomy that managing her drains was problematic. With this issue in mind, The Recovery Shirt is designed with four internal pouches, concealing medical equipment and increasing mobility
The Recovery Shirt is Available in 5 Sizes
The Recovery Shirt’s roomy size accommodates the patient’s need for privacy, with a fit similar to a men’s regular T-Shirt.
If you normally wear a Medium – Order a Medium.

PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR SIZE CAREFULLY…
The Recovery Shirt is primarily used for post-surgery so we are not able to exchange nor refund your money. This assures every patient’s recovery shirt to be new and untouched. The need for your recovery shirt begins the day you are discharged from the hospital.
Some Recovery Shirt Tips
- Your Recovery Shirt is helpful for in some cases 6 months or more depending on the treatment. The patient usually has surgical drains for one to two weeks, post op doctor visits, radiation and reconstruction so a day delay won’t negate the usefulness of the shirt.
- Ordering two Recovery Shirts will allow the patient to remain comfortable while the first shirt is in the wash.
- Wash your shirt first before wearing – it only gets softer!
The Recovery Shirt is honored to support the Male Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC), a not-for-profit patient advocacy organization, in their mission to bring everyone together to educate the world about male breast cancer.
MBCC shares stories from male breast cancer survivors all over the world. They are on a mission to build awareness through the wisdom and experiences of survivors and to provide resources for men and their families navigating through what is usually a ‘women’s only club’.
