Your Healincomfort Recovery Shirt Features:
- the patented Recovery Shirt by healincomfort®
The Recovery Shirt, a patented design created by a breast cancer survivor, eases patient recovery from painful upper body surgeries including mastectomy, lumpectomy, and reconstruction. The shirt will prove helpful for your post op recover, doctor visits, radiation, chemo, sleeping and daywear. This shirt, in combination with the full healincomfort kit, supplies the missing piece in the recovery puzzle. Now there’s a way to heal in comfort and dignity.
- soft as feathers moisture managing material
Your recovery shirt is constructed with loving care, and containing key patented features aiding in recovery, this garment’s material was specially chosen to feel as soft as feathers against sensitive, healing skin. Its moisture absorbing material keeps you both dry and comfortable.
- drain concealing pockets
If you return home with drainage tubes post-surgery, how do you effectively and painlessly manage them? Healincomfort founder and shirt designer, Cherie B. Mathews, discovered after her double mastectomy that managing her drains was problematic. With this issue in mind, Cherie designed The Recovery Shirt with four internal pouches, concealing drains and increasing mobility.
- velcro-like fasteners
Because movement after surgery may be limited, and maneuvering buttons can be a painful challenge, each post-op recovery shirt is fashioned with Velcro-like fasteners for ease of dressing.
“I loved the Heal in Comfort idea! I’m a nurse and I know that these kinds of things make a big difference to making people feel better in that healing time. Well done”
“I got my shirt!!! I got the healincomfort kit! I’m so excited to have this for my surgery. It’s so pretty and soft and I love “Be Brave and Fight Like a Girl!" It makes me actually look forward to wearing it. I will have 4 drains. I will go for a walk and look for my shadow.”
“Cherie sometimes we think oh heck one person can't make a difference... you prove us so wrong. The world is a better place because of your passion and compassion. You are an ANGEL!!”
"Cherie, one day, when God decides you're done being an angel on Earth, as you approach those pearly gates – you my friend, will be greeted with a standing ovation from all of the people you have helped & inspired – just as I am giving you one now!!"
"I wore my healincomfort shirt that Cherie Mathews send me from www.healincomfort.com. It had pockets for all drains which made it so nice. The nurses at the hospital loved it!! Everyone loved there were no buttons!! 2 hard on meds!"
"Oh my gosh, you are truly an angel. Jean gave the healincomfort shirts to doctors, patients, and nurses and they all loved them as I did. You really get tired of pulling something over your head or buttoning and unbuttoning. UNC knows your shirt at their new cancer center for sure. Thanks for all your support."
"Another surgery this Monday, thank goodness I have this incredibly comfortable shirt I bought to recover in. If you know anyone going through upper extremity surgery the healincomfort shirt is a must have."
I loved the Heal in Comfort Post-op recovery kit! I’m a nurse and I know that these kinds of things make a big difference to making people feel better in that healing time. Well done.

"Heading home in my healincomfort shirt! Most awesome post-surgery shirt EVER!! Thank you, Cherie!! Xoxo"
"She was so grateful and the nurse was very impressed, I shared your info with her. I appreciate you and am grateful for your foresight and goal to assist all women in keeping their dignity as they traverse the gauntlet of breast cancer surgery. Thank you and bless your heart."
Honestly... If I find myself feeling sorry for myself... I remember your “Shadow Story.” It helps my soul!!!
I wore your shirt after surgery as well; my surgery was just a couple months ago and i will be passing it on to someone in need; thank you for reminding us we're not alone!! hugs
Wore my healincomfort shirt home from surgery today. It is truly one of the best mastectomy / reconstruction MUSTS! Thank you for a brilliant invention!
Fantastic shirt. My wife felt so much better wearing hers. It just seemed like things were so much more organized and it made the healing process just that much easier. Thank you so much for making these!
Helpful for up to a year depending on treatment.
Helpful for post mastectomy, more discrete post-op doctor visits (no more paper capes!), radiation treatment and finally, reconstruction surgery.
The healincomfort Kit is designed to make your recovery from mastectomy or upper-body surgery more comfortable. The healincomfort Kit was developed by a 15 year breast cancer survivor/thriver Cherie B. Mathews after her own frustrating experience recovering from breast cancer surgery.
“I didn’t have the right equipment to go home in, if a sprained elbow gets a sling to heal in why isn’t there helpful equipment to heal in after a mastectomy?”
The perfect gift for upper-body surgery, mastectomy surgery, radiation and chemo treatments.
“This patient clothing is brilliant! We always used safety pins for the JP drains. Needless to say, this is a wonderful idea and I hope every patient in the world wears one — they should! Anything to improve patient outcomes is a welcomed addition. Pain Control, functional clothing and comfort are vital components. Make an unpleasant experience as pleasant as possible will be greatly appreciated by patients and their families.”
