You will require loose clothing that preferably buttons down the front or tank tops with large sleeves. Avoid clothing with small buttons, hooks and zips. Ladies may find a bra uncomfortable and may prefer to wear a strapless or front fastening bra.
Post-surgery, the best type of shirts are button-down or oversized t-shirts. You may also purchase post-surgical shirts online made specifically for shoulder surgery patients. In order to get dressed, focus on putting the surgical arm in first. For females, it may help to purchase a bra that has a front closure.
Besides this, how long after shoulder surgery can you wear a bra? Clothing for Hospital Should Include Loose Fitting Upper Apparel. A loose fitting sleeveless undershirt followed by a loose button down shirt. Please do not wear a traditional bra for two weeks, but one with a T-back or racer back straps are okay.
Even if, do and don'ts after rotator cuff surgery?
Don't do any lifting, pushing, or pulling. Don't move your shoulder or reach with the arm that your surgery was performed on. Don't remove the sutures. Don't travel until cleared by your doctor.
What can you not do after shoulder surgery?
You should not do any reaching, lifting, pushing, or pulling with your shoulder during the first six weeks after surgery. You should not reach behind your back with the operative arm. You may remove your arm from the sling to bend and straighten your elbow and to move your fingers several times a day.

One-and-a-half months after surgery, patients who did not wear a sling had increased shoulder motion, including external (outward) rotation and active elevation. Both groups showed continued improvement at three months, but shoulder elevation remained greater in the no-sling group.
Rotator cuff repair is the most painful surgery in the first postoperative days. The main risk factor for pain is a work related accident or occupational disease, associated with higher VAS values from D1 to 1 year and greater morphine intake.
During your recovery period, you will work with your physical therapist to regain motion and strengthen the area. The rotator cuff surgery recovery timeline can vary case by case, but a full recovery typically takes four to six months. It may take longer than that to return to heavy lifting.
It is well known that rotator cuff surgery is a major operation where the rotator cuff tendons (Figure 1) are sewn back to the upper arm bone (humerus) (Figures 2 and 3). The other major reason patients have pain after rotator cuff surgery is due to stiffness of that shoulder.
