what to wear

I am just short of 3 weeks post My belly is so sensitive to touch that I can't wear anything for a long period of time, without wanting to come out of my skin any suggestions. That is the only thing that I'm having problems with.

I wore nothing but sundresses for a few weeks (and i mean NOTHING BUT). Not only did they stay off of my belly, they made me feel more feminine...
Sounds like you are doing pretty well...good luck!

what to wear

Hi there! I found overall shorts worked best for me. They are loose fitting and you don't have to worry about them around your waist. I also had my surgery on 7-13 and my stomach area is still sensitive even though I had LAVH w/o big incision. When just loungeing around the house I usually wear my DH boxers they are super comfy for me.
Hope you continue to do well!!!

I have found Lovepats, or similar brand of stretch panties, work well. They don't rub and have no seam in front. I return to work tomorrow and after 8 weeks of wearing nothing but loose shorts and tshirts, it's going to be a challenge to find something I can stand all day long.

what to wear

The first few weeks after surgery I wore sundresses, and my husbands pull on, elestic wasted pajama bottoms.. His pants are about two sizes too big for me, so they were quite comfortable.... I now wear his shorts and find that they are quite comfy too....

You should be able to find lovepats at any national chain store. Hanes makes the same kind of panty, but I am not sure what they are called. Just look for a full knit panty with no seam for the crotch. And you might try a size bigger than you wear. I have been able to wear these since the fourth day after surgery.

what to wear

I wore loose fitting, light weight cotton sundresses, sometimes with a cotton slip, or cotton nightgowns, and no panties unless I was going out somewhere.

I hope your mission is successful!

what to wear

I can't seem to make myself go w/o panties (even when sleeping). I took home from the castle extra of those stretchy panties they have (nice bonus, just toss after use), then when they ran out went to very large granny panties. Around the house (just dh & I) I wore panties and tank tops. When company came (not many came, thankfully) I slipped into a lightwieght robe. When I did go out, I had some maternity pants with a drawstring that I wore prior to TAH to wear. I didn't go out for long, so they were fine for an hour or two.
