  1. Lorraine Jones

    My father is 5 weeks post op with the lvad device. These shirts have made such a difference in his ease of life. we ordered the tshirt and the sleep belt both have been awesome. He actually loves sleeping in the shirts because he feels so secure in the placement of the controller and driveline. Thank you for your innovative design! As I have read many replies and you have asked if you can post these on your website, yes, yes, yes! I can’t say enough about the life changing support these shirts have given my father.

    I ordered one of these for my husband – game changer! He loves it – just ordered two more.

  3. Barbara Gosiewski

    Hi Brent, My husband is a new Lvad wearer. your shirt has made a difficult learning process easier. He likes the fabric and tight fit. The pockets are in just the right spot and hold his equipment so they don’t slide around. Thanks. Barb

    My husband has been trying to figure out how to wear his LVAD so it’s safe, comfortable, and not bulky. Your brilliantly designed LVAD shirt makes all of this a reality. Thanks so much

    My husband loves these shirts. Thank you for your ingenuity in creating this shirt. It has made his LVAD life easier! This is my 4th shirt order! Would love a coupon (hint hint). Thank you.

    Awarded the heartmate3 on Apr 30. I despise the holster!!!! Is this comfortable?? Does look good.

  8. Neal Johnson

    Question please – in your illustration of the HEARTMATE shirt it spear that the control line is much longer than mine, given the anchor and all. Is there a minimum length of the control line necessary for the practical use of your shirt? Thanks.

    I received my LVAD for HeartMate 3 today and it is great. This makes the fifth one I have purchased, four from Etsy and now from lvadgear. Ordering was easy not confusing. I received the shirt in less than a week. I look forward to purchasing additional t-shirts in the near future. Thank you

    I’m going to really enjoy the LVAD shirts once I finish healing. I’m a couple of weeks past discharge and things are still bit tender. Even at that, when I tried one on it fit very nicely (I ordered mediums – I’m a little under 5′ 6″, 136 pounds, chest 37″ – squarely between a small and a medium.) It’s going to be the solution when I’m healed up and especially when the weather gets warmer. It’s great to have all the equipment in one garment. It makes getting dressed much easier, and everything is balanced and out of sight.

    I absolutely love the heartmate shirt! The weight of the equipment is distributed perfectly. Wish you had a tank shirt to wear in the summer. The shirt sleeves show underneath the top shirt as well as adds to the heat of summer.

    I just wanted to tell you that the LVAD shirt fit my husband perfectly! It relieved him from the pressure on his neck and back. He was so pleased with it that I just ordered another one in the color black.

    Thank you,

    My husband had his LVAD put in in Memorial day so we are still learning the ropes but we were thrilled when we received his t-shirt. It is so much more comfortable than all of those straps and harnesses. Thank you for your endeavors to make this life easier!

I had my heart mate 3 surgery 3 weeks ago and I’m looking for lvad shirts, the problem I’m having is I wear 3x so I’m looking for a 4x since you say they run small. Any help or ideas would be great

Hello Martin,
Thanks for asking, unfortunately the 3xlarge is the largest size we have for the heart mate 3 at this point. We may be expanding the line in the future in which case it may suit your needs better. You might try the 3xlarge size and see how it fits you. If it is not to your liking/ or fit we can refund your purchase. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

I am purchasing this shirt for my brother and am not sure which option to choose for the drive line placement. Please explain.

Hi Jeanette, If the size is xl or smaller it doesn’t matter which side the Driveline exits his body. On the 2x and 3x we move the controller pocket closer to where the driveline exits the body. Sometimes people don’t have enough driveline to reach the center of the shirt in these sizes. Hope your brother is doing well.

In surveying people we found most people have a minimum of 18″ of driveline. So all our products are made to accommodate 18″ of driveline. On the 2x and 3x sizes we move the controller pocket to the side with the driveline, so there is enough to reach the pocket. It is pretty rare someone doesn’t have enough driveline to reach the pocket.
