I am looking for companies that sell comfortable long sleeve cotton tops with roomy sleeves - almost like dolman sleeves - that has an opening in the front that's not so restricting. I swear I thought I was good at online shopping until now! I can't find any tops with easy opening in the front (buttons are hard on her) that's roomy that doesn't look like she inherited from her Grandma (and no disrespect to all wonderful Grandmas here! :)

I'm also looking for a light absorbent robe (terry clothes are too heavy on her shoulders) so she doesn't have to use a heavy bath towel after a shower.

I rather buy all cotton but it's mixed in with a little bit of something else, that's fine. As the weather gets cooler, I don't want a fabric that's cold on touch.

Thanks so much!

Maybe something like this, but it's fleece

Lady Olga on Amazon has a nice robe. They also have a bedjacket but maybe it's too old fashioned... I think it's vintage looking. Was looking at old knitting patterns recently and saw something similar...

Thanks for the links. They're pretty. I might buy them for myself! Smile

She's having more and more difficulties getting dressed. She can't reach up or down. She's so frustrated how invalid she's become...I'm actually looking for underwear that snaps on the bottom so she doesn't have to pull her undies down but that won't work either since she can't grab the back piece to snap.

Her Lymphedema is getting worse and she has so mobility... :( She see her Lymphedema therapist this Friday and I am hoping she'll be a savior to this problem.
