The original Shoulder Shirt™

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. These shirts work well during hospice care, stroke and bed-ridden patients. They are also a hit with nursing mothers with their easy access and style.

This style of nightgown has a scoop neck and opens at both shoulders with Velcro for ease in dressing (or nursing). 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.)

You can watch a video on how Shoulder Shirts™ work at:

Most of my gowns are made from polyester and/or cotton knits or cotton flannel; this allows for comfort and easy care while you are recuperating. The gowns are machine washable. I do recommend hang drying due to the velcro.

I have included the approximate measurements. (I do not recommend ordering the next size larger than you usually wear without first checking these measurements.)
Size: Large (14-16)
Fits Bust: 36-38
Length (from shoulder to hem):40"
Hem Circ: 56"
Actual Circ. at Chest: 43”
Fabric: Polyester knit. This is a wonderful medium weight polyester knit fabric that would be so comfortable to sleep in. It features a gorgeous shade of bright red. Wonderful for just after surgery or for breastfeeding moms.
Style: Heidi

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.

We will ship internationally; see our shipping policies for details.

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.

Shoulder Shirts™ are available in a variety of styles, sizes and fabrics. If you don’t see a shirt in your size, or have questions, contact me via the “envelope” button at the top of my shop or send me an email at shouldershirts [!at] to see if I am able to make and list it for you. Please check out our store often to see our changing selection of shirts.
