    I never wore a gown. My radiologist suggested I just wear a button down shirt and remove it before I did the treatment. Treatments take about 5 min & I'm done. Shirt back on & I'm on my way home. I think the gowns are unnecessary. . I found that some companies are just out to make money

    I wore a regular button up shirt during radiation treatments. Slipped it off & on.

      that's a good idea too! I just wanted something specifically designed for what we're going through since treatment is kind of long and I feel so gross in normal hospital gowns

    I don't see the point. Either way you have to be radiated mostly naked up top. They want to line you up correctly by seeing your little tattoos. Exposed

      that's true about being almost naked up top. I just thought it was a nice idea and designed by a breast cancer survivor so she's been through all this lovely stuff of radiation every day :( you can just wear it to the hospital and after if you...

      Isn't it enough of an industry? Your clothes work just fine. You don't need a rads top.
      Having done more than six weeks of it: I just say REALLY.

      Buy a nice blouse you can wear later. Too.

      Is rather focus on the health reality of us all. Work together on those habits.

      But yes. Whatever works to get an individual through.

    Whatever works for people. I spent only about 10 minutes at the rads clinic. I changed from my regular top to a short examination gown that was opened up about 30 seconds later. I'm not sure is was even worth it to put one on. The last few treatments just striped and laid on the table and then put my top on and left.

      I just ordered one!! cannot wait to receive it in the mail so I can wear it around the hospital. I think it'll be much better than those crappy gowns or pillow cases they give us now. I'll let you know how I like it!
