Protect your Investment

We love the Silky Sac for many reasons, but the main one is how it helps to maintain the binders throughout recovery. You put your binder(s) in the Silky Sac before washing, and it’s protected from the harsh spinning and other garments during the cycle. It helps to maintain the quality of the binders, while still getting it clean.

After recovery you can use the Silky Sac to wash your bras and other undergarments! It’s a wonderful product that can be used for many years for many items!

Will my hospital give me a pocket binder?

Will my hospital give me a pocket binder?

You can get the Pocket Abdominal Binder only from the Hysterectomy Store. 

This question, also, gives us a chance to tell you the history behind this special binder. The Hysterectomy Store (previously named HysterSisters Store) has sold binders almost 20 years. Back in those days we found a product we called the Belly Band – that was a band with a gel inside that was activated with water. Although it was nicely cold for tender bellies, it was also wet! And so, we determined to find a way to give women the benefit of the binder while also adding a cold pack for the benefits of cold (or warm!) against incisions and overall tender, sore tummy without the wet factor.

In developing a prototype, we actually took one of our specially designed binders – and added a pocket – sewing it on Kathy’s (founder of HysterSisters) kitchen table. Wa-la! We ended up having to redesign the shape of the 6″ binder slightly for the pocket binder – because of the added shape of the pocket with the ice pack – and it worked! Then we called the manufacturer and sent the prototype to them. “Yes,” they said. They could produce them. A few trial and errors later, we had the pocket binder in stock – and we named it the Perfect Pocket Abdominal binder – because, well, we think its perfect!
