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. Caregivers of hospice, stoke and bed-ridden patients 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. Some people of have asked for more natural fabrics. The shirts are machine washable; I recommend cold water wash and hang dry.

The shirts tend to run a bit big to accommodate braces and casts so I have included the approximate measurements. (I do not recommend buying the next size larger than you normally wear without first checking these measurements.)

PLEASE SEE LAST PICTURE FOR MEASUREMENTS AND SIZE CHART

Fabric: Polyester Wickaway Knit. Wickaway knits are durable polyester jersey developed for athletic and workwear. Offering skin friendly softness with a nice stretch. It is made with wicking filament yarns to help keep the wearer cool and free from chilling effects of sweat. The fabric draws moister away from your skin and is very comfortable.
This shirt is a lighter medium weight fabric with a smooth texture and features a brilliant shade of pink. Beautiful color for this spring and summer. It would be wonderful for recovering around the house or going to medical or physical therapy appointments. Moms will love its easy access for nursing.
Style: Tracie

These shirts make excellent gifts for friends and family after surgery in place of flowers!! They are useful and will last much longer than flowers. They also are wonderful baby shower presents for that soon-to-be breastfeeding mom.

We will ship internationally priority mail; 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.

Frequently asked questions about ShoulderShirts

Shoulder Shirts™ tend to run a bit large to accommodate braces and casts. The last picture in each listing is a size/measurement chart for that style of shirt. The last couple of measurements are the approximate actual circumferences and length of the shirts.

(I do not recommend ordering the next size larger than you normally wear without first checking these measurements.)
Shoulder Shirts™ are made primarily from polyester and/or cotton blends and knits; this allows for comfort and easy care while you are recuperating. However, for those who have asked for the more natural fabrics, we do have a few of cotton, rayon and other natural blends. Be sure to look for them. The shirts are machine washable; I recommend cold water wash and hanging or lying flat to dry. (Please note that the cotton fabrics may shrink a bit with the first washing; we have compensated for this with extra length on the shirts.)
If your Shoulder Shirt™ is a gift, we will include a personalized gift card. Be sure to leave the message you would like to be included in the "Note to Seller" section at checkout.
