Hi everyone! I'm scheduled to have my tummy tuck with lipo on the 3rd of Aug. I'm nervous and excited at the same time. I just want to know what I need to pack for the next 6 days after my surgery.. My girlfriend will be caring for me so I'll be staying at her place after. I'd like to know what clothing and undies are the most comfortable to wear.. Etc... Thanks in advance : )

Thanks so much : ) Greatly appreciated! I'm excited and nervous! By any chance, did any of you do breast augmentation at the same time? I'm somewhat considering it...

Good luck! If I had more of them, I'd wear a stretchy, thin, cotton tank top under my binder to help with the itchiness the first few days!

You will need plenty of comfy clothes.  Slip on shoes, elastic waist pants or pajama bottoms, over sized t-shirts, night gowns, granny panties, soft cotton bras. 

I found I was most comfortable in men's extra large cotton t-shirts.  Some women also really like button up or zip up robes.  After the first 6-7 days I ditched the panties because it was more comfortable and easier for using the bathroom etc.  I pretty much lived in the big t-shirt for the first 10 days.

When I had to leave the house I wore a zip up hoodie and a pair of stretchy Capri workout pants.  I pinned the drains up to the bottom band of my bra and they were hidden nicely under the hoodie.
