Our mission at Post-op Top is to provide comfortable, fashionable and affordable clothing for women to wear after surgery for a breast cancer procedure or any breast augmentation procedure. One of the founders of Post-op Top, Lesa Behrens, was diagnosed with Stage III breast cancer in May of 2008. Following Lesa's double mastectomy surgery she could barely move her arms and had drainage tubes attached to her body. No one explained the severity of all of this to her before her surgery; therefore she wasn't sure what to expect. She planned to wear a hooded sweatshirt home from the hospital. Instead, she wore her hospital gown, because there was no other choice.
At Post-op Top, we want to make sure women are comfortable when they leave the hospital and during their recovery period. As the family and friends of these women, we believe this is a great way for us to keep our mothers, sisters, daughters or grandmothers comfortable during their experience. All of our tops are designed to button up or step into, therefore accommodating the limited mobility experienced post-op. The material is also soft enough to sleep in, and contains a bit of stretch to maintain its shape. Comes in two colors: Grey and Pink.

What are the care instructions?
The tops are machine washable with like colors on cold/warm setting, tumble dry, do not add bleach, and stain remover can be used when necessary.
What size do I purchase?
The tops are designed to accommodate any wraps, bandages and/or swelling that the patient may have following surgery. Therefore, it is not necessary to order a larger size than what you normally wear.
How many tops should I order?
We suggest that each customer purchase 2 or 3 tops. Most women have their drain bulbs and bandages for 2-4 weeks, therefore the convenience of having more tops will enable you to participate in your daily activities more comfortably.
What if I have more than two drain bulbs?
Each top includes two detachable pockets as well as, four, small pouches on the inside front of the top. These pouches provide support for additional bulbs
