As a shoulder surgery patient, you may find that it can be difficult to find shirts that are comfortable and accommodating for your recovery. To ensure that you have the support you need during this time, it may be helpful to create your own custom-made shirt that is tailored specifically for your needs.
Here are a few steps to help guide you through the process of making your own shoulder surgery shirt:
Gather your materials: You will need a shirt that fits you well, a fabric marker, scissors, and fabric glue. You can also use a sewing machine if you have one, but fabric glue is an easier alternative.
Mark the areas of the shirt that need to be modified: You will want to add extra fabric to the front of the shirt, near the neckline and under the arms, to give your surgical arm plenty of room. Use your fabric marker to mark the areas that need to be altered.
Cut and glue additional fabric to the marked areas: Cut pieces of fabric that are the same size as the marked areas and glue them to the shirt. If you are using a sewing machine, you can sew the pieces of fabric onto the shirt instead.
Add Velcro: To make it easier to get the shirt on and off, add Velcro to the front of the shirt. This will allow you to open and close the shirt without having to pull it over your head.
Test it out: Make sure the shirt fits comfortably and provides enough support to your shoulder before wearing it regularly.
By following these simple steps, you can create a custom-made shirt that will help you feel comfortable and supported during your shoulder surgery recovery. With a little bit of time and effort, you can ensure that you have the right clothing to help you through this difficult time.
