You can shed your flannel pajamas or fleece nightgowns for something that may be a little more wispy or comfortable when it gets warm. After a mastectomy, women may feel the need for sleepwear that may need to overcome a lack of self-confidence. Don’t fear, there are options available to women to help them feel comfortable.
