Surgery MASTECTOMY SHIRT with Drain Holder Pockets
UltraSoft Mastectomy SURGERY SHIRTS WITH DRAIN POCKETS (PATENT D816301)
Available in size Medium to Plus! After a breast surgery, like a mastectomy, drain tubes are installed. These tubes cannot be left hanging free. This mastectomy top is essential to the healing process. Each mastectomy T Shirt holds up to 3 drains on each side. It keeps them secure and in place, and therefore keeps her comfortable. These T Shirts are PERFECT for sleeping in. They also make daily life more convenient, whether you are home or on the go! The inside pockets at the bottom of the Tee hold up to 3 drains on each side. It has soft snaps in the front for easy on-off, and to get to the drains easily.
Order one size larger than you normally wear to accommodate drains and bandaging after surgery. However, I suggest ordering the Drain Holding Hoodie the same size you currently wear, as it has a more roomy fit.
Medium is about 40" around the torso
Large is about 44"
X-Large is about 47"
3XL is about 51"
4XL is about 54"
5X/Plus size is about 59"
Drains and bandaging take up 2-4" in the pockets. Line up your measurements to those listed but add 2-4" so that you will have room for the drains.
POST OP TOP SIZING
When choosing the size of top to wear after your mastectomy, it is very important to factor in the drains you will have after surgery. These drains can take up anywhere from 2-3" inside the internal pockets of your Pink Pepper Co post op shirt. Therefore, it is best to choose a size based on your measurements, not simply choosing the size you currently wear. Add 3-4" to your high hip measurement when comparing to the size chart below, to make sure the shirt will accommodate the drains.
Small - 34"
Medium - 40"
Large - 44"
XL - 47"
3XL - 51"
Plus - 59"
Typically you can order the Post Op Top in one size larger than you normally wear to accommodate drains and bandaging after surgery. However, I suggest ordering the Drain Holding Hoodie the same size you currently wear, as it has a more roomy fit.

I was thankful that I did my research when my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer. I wanted to do everything I could to help her. When I found Pink Pepper, I was excited with their products. When my sister was released from the hospital, I was thankful to have Pink Pepper's Post Op Chest Pillow to protect her tender surgery area from the seat belt; from the ride across the many bumpy intersections and bridges, and from her little anxious puppy when she arrived home from her surgery. I think the size and comfort of the pillow gave her the emotional support she needed. Thank you Pink Pillow; I approve all of your other products as well - 100%.
The ahirt fits around my middle, but is way too large in the arm holes.
I’ve had two friends that I’ve sent these shirts to for their post-operative care and both shared these shirts were just what they needed post-mastectomy. They shared there is little to nothing out there available — these were a godsend!
Leslie/Pink Pepper was amazing! Easiest part of this whole process. She knows you’re going through a lot and she brings warmth, support and comfort. Products are as described - I went 1 size bigger on the shirt to make sure I have room for the bandages, etc.
As I write this review, I am wearing a Pink Pepper Co mastectomy shirt with drain pockets, while leaning on my special pillow. Both products have been just amazing throughout my recovery phase after each of two surgeries. The shirt is perfectly designed with internal pockets to safely hold and protect surgical drains, and the pillow has helped while sitting up, reclining, enjoying time on the patio, etc., to support arms, back, neck, legs, very versatile! Love these products!
