3 Stylish Outfits To Hide a Heart Monitor

When I was in the fifth grade I was diagnosed with Mitral Valve Prolapse. It’s not something that affects my life on a daily basis, other than my heart beats super cool and I have to get yearly checkups. I don’t even have to take medicine for it, which I consider a huge win!

This summer I went in for my routine check up echocardiogram and they decided to have me wear a heart monitor for a month. If you take a look at the next photo in the post you’ll see that it was no easy feat to hide a monitor and a large cell phone that had to be within 10 feet of it at all times. Because hiding a heart monitor isn’t the easiest thing to do style wise, I wanted to share my tips.

I found that the best way to hide the cell phone part of the monitor was to carry a clutch with me everywhere I went.

Hiding the electrodes and the monitor itself was a bit trickier. I decided to give up normal bras for a month because it was simply easier to wear a sports bra. Tuck the monitor in the sports bra and you’re good to go for the day. You might need to wear a scarf to occasionally hide the sports bra straps (see outfit #2).

Because four electrodes were stuck to me at all times I also found that some outfits didn’t work during that month. So say goodbye to your favorite v-necks and scoop necks for a few weeks. I did wear tank tops to run and the electrodes were definitely visible, I just embraced it.

I didn’t buy anything new to hide the heart monitor. Get creative, utilize what you have in your closet and have fun with your style during this season!
