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) 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 from polyester and/or cotton knits; this allows for comfort and easy care while you are recuperating. The shirts are machine washable.

The shirts tend to run big to accommodate braces and casts so I have included the approximate measurements. (I don't recommend buying the next size larger than you usually wear without first checking these measurements.
Size: Medium (10-12)
Fits Bust: 32-24
Length (from shoulder to hem): 25"
Hem Circ: 58"
Shirt Circ at Chest: 42"
Fabric: Cotton blend knit. This is a wonderful medium weight cotton blend knit fabric in a bright pink floral print. What a cheery way to recover from surgery. It would look really good with khakis or jeans.
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 make wonderful 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.

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.
