There are two large pockets. One on each side. Each pocket can hold multiple drains. One benefit to these tanks is that they keep the drains snug against your body so that they are not swinging around inside looser fitting clothing, which can be painful. I recommend ordering your normal size for a snug fit or one size up for a looser fit. You can wear a looser fitting button down or zip up sweatshirt over the tank top and the drains will not even be noticeable. It is made of a soft, 70% cotton/30% nylon fabric.
Hoodie is made with pocket fabric shown. You have the option to choose your pocket fabric by adding the customization here: Pocket Fabric Customization

When I had my bilateral mastectomy I had no idea that the drains would be the worst part of it. I asked around to see what I could do to make the process easier. I was told you had to attach them to the inside of your clothes with little safety pins. Then you had to undo and redo the safety pins multiple times a day, on multiple drains, to empty them. Not easy when you are sore and feeling terrible. After doing some research online and finding post surgery camisoles cost $50-$60 each, for something you only need for two to four weeks, I decided to sew pockets to the inside of some of my shirts and it made the whole process so much easier. The nurses also really appreciated it because they are often the ones doing the pinning in the first couple of days after surgery.
Please feel free to send me a convo with any questions. If your surgery is coming up very soon, please email me before ordering to ensure I can get you this shirt on time...I will do my best! Going thru a difficult surgery is hard enough. I am hoping this product makes things a little bit easier.
