Not Ready to Embrace Your Knee Brace? 3 Clothing Items to Sport This Spring
‘Tis the season for shorts, skirts, swimsuits, and all things spring. However, if you have just gotten knee surgery and you have to wear a knee brace, the last thing you may want to show off are your new scars. But just because you have an injured knee, it doesn’t mean that you still can’t be fashionable. From maxi skirts to dresses, this article will discuss a few items of clothing every woman should invest in for after knee surgery. Read on to learn more.
Long, flowy maxi-skirts are really in style this spring. With designer stores like JCrew filling their catalogs full of both dressy and casual maxi-skirts, you have plenty of options to choose from. The best thing about wearing a maxi skirt after having knee surgery is that you can cover up your knee braces while still looking fashionable. And, by pairing a dressy maxi skirt with a simple t-shirt, you can head just about anywhere looking as chic as ever.
Another staple that everyone— not just knee brace wearers— are going to be sporting this spring is a maxi dress. Dresses are an easy, fun, and girly way to dress up your everyday wardrobe. And, just like with maxi skirts, maxi dresses will cover up your knee brace, so you won’t have to worry about everyone seeing it. When shopping for a maxi dress to go over your brace/boot, make sure that it’s loose so that it doesn’t get caught on your brace when you are walking.
No, you’re not going to be representing your inner 1990’s gangster with these pants, but baggy pants in materials like linen and cotton are so in style this spring. And, if they are baggy enough, they will be able to cover your knee brace without fail. When shopping for baggy pants to cover your braces, make sure that you can pull your pants on and off without them getting stuck on it— this will make your life a lot easier.
Maxi skirts, dresses, and baggy pants are going to be your best friend this spring if you just got knee surgery. To learn more about recovery tips from knee surgery, contact Dr. John Moore’s office today!
