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 shirt 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.)

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

I have included the approximate measurements:
Size: Medium (10-12)
Fits Bust: 32-34
Length (from shoulder to hem): 25"
Hem Circ: 42"
Actual Circ. of shirt at Chest: 40”
Fabric: Cotton/Polyester knit. This is a medium weight cotton/polyester knit fabric in a bright red. This would be great for this spring and summer. Perfect for nursing moms, recuperating from surgery and going to medical and physical therapy appointments.
Style: Sara

PLEASE NOTE that the necklace is not included with the shirt. You can see our gorgeous jewelry at DJDelights.etsy.com (specializing in semi-precious stone medical alert bracelets).

Shoulder Shirts™ make wonderful gifts for friends and family after surgery!! They last much longer than flowers and are so useful in their recuperation.

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.

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. The chest circumference should be 5-10" larger than your actual chest circumference. You need to be able to easily pull your shirt up over your hips.

(I do not recommend ordering the next size larger than you normally wear without first checking these measurements.)

You should also note that the knit fabrics do give and are going to fit looser than the woven fabrics which don't have as much give to them.
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.
If you do not see a size in a fabric listed, please contact me to see if we have more fabric available. We have lots of additional fabrics and I can work with you to get something you will like and feel comfortable in during your recuperation. Shoulder Shirts™ goal is to make life easier during your difficult times.
