What clothes to pack?

What clothes to pack?

Postby Julia_Chloe » Tue Nov 01, 2011 6:03 am

I will be staying at a hotel 1week post my arm lift + breast lift.. what clothes should I pack for that time? I mean, what will I be able to put on mostly by myself?
Do you think it is possible to wear something like this maybe:

Or not, because it ends just where the boobs are / under the arms??

Great question. You could totally wear a dress like that. Remember you will be either in a surgical bra or a sports bra depending on PS, so you will have straps - you can easily just add a shrug, sweater or cute jacket to hide the straps. I also preferred my arms covered - they were so sensitive, I couldn't have fathomed them exposed.

The only types of clothing you really want to avoid are things you have to pull on over your head - you want to avoid having to lift your arms up in the air as much as possible the first few weeks.

I think any comfy dress you can pull on or get on over your hips up is just fine. I also loved flowy, peasant style shirts with leggings.

Thank you! :) Hey, I have another clothes question now.. how do you put on a shrug or sweater or jacket?? Is it possible to "pull" the arms back far enough to get in? Is it possible to "flex" the arm muscles enough to pull tights or leggins up? And what about shoelaces? Easy to work with or might it be better to wear some boots without them? :D

Julia, I have to say I love you - you come up with best questions! Seriously, stuff I wouldn't have thought off, and I know many women behind us our going to read our posts and really go in so much more prepared!

Yes, I think a shrug or sweater will be fine. Just avoid tight jackets or demin jackets with just no give. With a shrug I would get one arm in and then lean forward till the other side fell to where I could get the arm in. I also think all those new wrap style lightweight shirts and sweaters would be great choices.

I think you can do laces, but boots might just be more convenient. It was summer when I had my things done, but had it been fall/winter, I would have been living in Uggs. :)

Hahaha thank you! :D I'm just a worrier.. always going through all possible situations in my head, trying to be as prepared as possible.. in the end I always(!) forget to prepare some essential things though, thanks to all the thinking and making up of random situations. :mrgreen:

Ah I am glad I bought some of those lightweight shirts and some thin jackets during the summer time. They were actually to hide the fatty arms, but still be able to not die from overheating. :D I think I will pack those! Thank you again for the tip!

Hey, I have one more question.. I have two little cats (16 months old) and am having a struggle with finding a place for them to stay.. do you think it would be possible to take care of them again after one or two weeks?

I would say you are just thorough. I am the same way. I have one cat and she pretty much takes care of herself. I feed her and clean her litter box every 2-3 weeks. She doesn't really interact with anyone. If she is not the kind of cat that needs attention, just fill her up with food and water and go. She should be fine. If she would be lonely, have someone pop in a time or two on her. You should have no issues taking her of when you get back. I lifted a 70 pound beagle today 4 days out of revisions. I shouldn't have, but I was dogsitting and I had to get her outside and she refused to come out on her own.
