Enjoy dressing without discomfort during your recuperation from surgery. All types of shoulder surgery, breast surgery or anything that limits lifting your arms when dressing.
If you suffer from arthritis or some other condition that does not allow you to lift your arms, these shirts are a must. Seniors love the ease and comfort of these shirts. Hospice and stoke patients, caregivers and seniors enjoy the ease of these awesome shirts. They are also a hit with nursing mothers with their easy access and style.
This style of shirt opens at both shoulders with Velcro for ease in dressing (or nursing) and has drop sleeves that do not require fastening. Each Shoulder Shirt™ comes with a ribbon designed to pull up the back shoulder into position for fastening the shirt. (See pictures for examples of how the shirts work.)

My shirts are made mainly from polyester and/or cotton blends and knits; this allows for comfort and easy care while you are recuperating. However, some people have asked for more natural fabrics due to the humidity so be sure to look for these. (This is one of them.) Please note that the more natural fabrics due tend to wrinkle a bit in washing. The shirts are machine washable; I recommend cold water wash.
The shirts tend to run bit to accommodate braces and casts so I have included the approximate measurements. (I do not recommend ordering the next size larger than you usually wear without first checking these sizes first.)
Size: 2XL (18-20)
Fits Bust: 44-46
Length (from shoulder to hem): 30"
Hem Circ: 64"
Actual Chest Circ.: 52”
Fabric: Cotton. This is a wonderful natural fabric that is a medium weight woven cotton fabric (I have prewashed it) . This shirt features a delightful paisley print on a creamy yellow background that is just gorgeous. Perfect for recuperating round the house or going to medical or physical therapy appointments. Also great for breastfeeding.
Shoulder Shirts™ make wonderful gifts for friends and family after surgery!! They last much longer than flowers and are so useful in their recuperation. They are also great baby shower presents for that soon-to-be nursing mom.

My mother had rotator cuff surgery twice and I made her some shirts that released at the shoulders. Her physical therapist was so impressed he requested that I make them to sell. These shirts are specifically designed and created with care and love. I am hoping to help others after their surgery by easing some of the discomfort caused by their clothing. These shirts also work well for people with arthritis, as well as breastfeeding mother. I have been sewing for over 30 years now and received training from a professional seamstress from Malta. All seams are finished and details are a must in anything that I create. I hope you enjoy your shirt as much as I enjoy making them.
