Post-surgical drains.  You've just been told you will receive them following your surgical procedure.  Drains?  What are drains?  Then the real questions begin:


  • How do you manage them?  

  • How do you move around with drains?  

  • How do you resume your daily life while recuperating?  

  • What are you supposed to do with them if you are able to shower?  

  • What if you have trouble working the pins or tape typically provided?

  • What if you can't put your arms over your head to slide on a pouched cami or other garment?

  • And, what if they scare the kids?  


It was with these questions, from a breast cancer survivor who happened to be in this situation and who was a textile designer, that the MARSUPIAL was created.  

Fabricated in a soft, highest spa-quality, luxurious-feeling 100% cotton terry cloth, the MARSUPIAL takes the guesswork out of what to do with the drains and their cumbersome tubing.  It is comfortable to wear, whether positioned on the waist, hips or somewhere in between.  A 3" wide high-quality latex belt is encased in super soft, spa-quality plush terry cloth, with a large 5" long velcro fastening.  Each pouch measures 6" tall from pouch opening to bottom, and 6.5" wide.  The belt can be worn as snugly or loosely as needed without worry about rough surfaces touching delicate skin.  If you are permitted to shower by your physician, the MARSUPIAL may be worn to provide full use of hands for safety and convenience.  Simply toss the wet belt and pouch into the washer, and slip on a dry set.
