What a great idea Laura. I am going to get some maxi pads for sure.
Washed the binder today and it took forever to dry. Was raining outside so couldn't put it out, turned the heat on extra high and hung it over the air vents but that didn't work that great, so I then tried turning on the oven and hanging it on a chair in front of the open oven door. That worked a little better, but it too was not working that fast. I then told my sister in law to throw in the dryer on the air/dry cycle and did that for 10 minute intervals until it finally felt drier. We hung it over the upstairs railing and turned on the overhead fan and I finally just put it back on. What a long process.
Now that you say the gentle cycle worked fine on your dryer, that's what I will do next time.
I had the binder off since about 4 pm and didn't get it back on until 10 pm...I am pretty sure that is not a good idea to have it off so long. Right? I was getting tired of wearing it earlier today, but I must admit now that I have it back on I feel a lot better...more secure.
Thanks too for posting the links to those two undergarments you use...that was what I needed, a picture to go by. I went out today and bought a good sports bra and put it on after my shower. I tried to put the other waist cincher type of garment on (bought one today too), but it was just a little too tight and i think I will wait to put that on after I see the doc this Friday and ask if it is OK. I don't want to take the binder off too soon, but I know the under garment will be a lot more comfortable. Anyway, all that to say i appreciated seeing a picture so that I knew what to look for, so thanks again for posting it. By the way, when did you start wearing the waist cincher and boy shorts after your surgery?
Goodnight...take care. Linda
