    great idea. I will do these for mastectomy patients. My sis sent me a bag for dainage tubes. but couldn't use it in the shower cuz it was solid cotton. so I will do the nylon mesh and make these also.

    Be careful with velcro as it can be picky and irritate the skin. make sure the velcro has soft material around it and won't come in contact with the skin.

    Thank you for sharing this with us. Very useful. I will make these for our local hospital. Great idea. I've seen it before and appreciate you sharing it here.

    Do you think a 14" pillow would be too big? Our church already has a stash of 14" pillow forms that we were going to use for something else and it never happened. Thought maybe we could utilize them instead of buying more.
    What do you think?

    I used a regular bed pillow when I had my Mastectomy. So 14" would be fine
