PICC Line Cover
Cover and protect your PICC Line with a PICC Line Cover from Care+Wear
To help people live better with cancer, we donate $1000 to the American Cancer Society every month.
PICC Line Covers are made with a breathable, comfortable cotton/lycra fabric that has an EPA-approved antimicrobial treatment. They are perfect for covering and securing PICC lines, which are often required for patients having regular cancer treatment, and preventing snagging.
The Care + Wear PICC Line Cover can be machine washed, and the antimicrobial treatment will last at least 100 washes while maintaining 99.9% efficacy. The cover includes a mesh window which allows both airflow and visibility to the PICC line, allowing for any changes in the appearance to be seen.
The idea for Care+Wear's innovative PICC line covers came after a friend's experience receiving treatment through a PICC line. Their friend was told to wear a sock to protect and cover the PICC line site, making the uncomfortable treatment even more uncomfortable. The bulky white sock became a constant reminder of the illness. They decided to create something new and better that would help patients living with PICC lines. They wanted to help them see themselves as people first, and patients second.
- Helps to securely cover the line and prevent snags
- Soft, comfortable and breathable cotton / lycra blend
- Mesh window allows airflow and visibility
Please note: We recommend that you measure your bicep before ordering to ensure you get the right size. Get a friend to measure the circumference of your bicep where the PICC line will be or is already inserted. If you are between sizes, please order a size down as the covers run large. Please be advised that sizes are guidelines only.

Why do people living with cancer recommend this product?
I loved the mesh window, which makes it easy to see my PICC site and ensure it was doing well. I also love that the band kept everything nice and covered (which helped to prevent snags and also made me feel more normal in public). I also love that it was machine washable.
PICC Line Cover FAQs
Can I get my PICC Line Cover wet?
The Care + Wear PICC Line Cover is not waterproof, and neither is the dressing over the PICC line. It is important that your PICC line is kept dry as water at the site of the PICC line can increase the risk of infection.
How do PICC lines work?
PICC lines are thin plastic tubes that go into your vein. PICC lines allow healthcare professionals to give you medication that needs to go straight into your veins, and take blood tests without any additional needles.
What does 'PICC' stand for?
PICC stands for Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter.
What are the benefits of using a PICC Line Cover?
Our PICC Line Covers are instilled with an EPA approved antimicrobial treatment, that will last for 100 washes. The fabric is also hypoallergenic, meaning it won’t irritate sensitive skin caused by chemo. The insertion site is covered by a mesh window, allowing you to keep an eye out for displacement or infection.
How many colours and sizes do the PICC line covers come in?
Currently, our range comes in eight different colours. The sizes range from XXS to XL.
What size PICC Line Cover do I need?
Before purchasing your PICC Line Cover, it is best to measure your bicep to ensure you pick the right size. Either with a piece of string or a ribbon tape measure, measure the widest part of your arm in inches. This number will advise what size would fit you best.
Looks more like a sports injury cover so I feel less self conscious of it being on display. I ordere in camel. My picc is lower down than that displayed, closer to bend in elbow. I measured jus above where my line is. I was at the top of the size I ordered and it fits well.
Lovely, Soft Material and Excellent Fit
Bought for my teenage son. He finds it really comfortable and it looks good too. Have bought the black and slate colours now. Nurses always make positive comments about it. Would highly recommend to others.
Picc line cover
It was a lot better looking than tubigrip. Thought it was dear to buy.
Much nicer than the one supplied by the hospital. The nurses were impressed when I went for Chemo wearing it. They liked the window and the softness of the cover. Will definitely buy more to rotate.
Picc line sleeve
Expensive but cover my picc line a lot better and look nicer than the Nhs stocking . I’ll buy some more in different colours.
Pic Line Cover
Great product and service from this very helpful company
Comfortable and does the job
I’ve purchased two of these covers in the same size to rotate over my PICC line. The pink one fits really well but this red one is slightly loose. It’s not a major problem though and certainly better than those bandages the hospital give you. The nurses all like it!
Picc line covers
So much more comfortable than tubigrip. Worth every penny. We have four!!
I just love this. It fits perfectly and more importantly I feel so less self conscious about having the pics line in. Great product.
PICC LINE COVER
VERY HAPPY WITH THE CAMEL COLOURED COVER ALTHOUGH MY ARM MEASUREMENT WAS ON THE TOP END OF THE SIZE RANGE THE FITTING IS ON THE CUSP OF BEING LOOSE. IT WOULD BE TOO SLACK FOR A SMALLER ARM.
A relief from tubigrip my Mum got back from the hospital. Looks more like something sporty you'd wear out running to keep your phone in. The nurses were very impressed and asked where she'd got it. Good fit.
PICC Line Cover
Just had my PICC line inserted yesterday and love ❤️ the cover as I don't feel as vulnerable as I know I would if it were exposed. Just about to order a different coloured one also😄
Everyone is complimenting my wife and the smart and very functional PICC line covers I bought her.
My husband finds the cover comfy and discreet-much better than the bandages the hospital give. The nurses always ask where he bought it from. We recommend it
PICC line cover
I bought this for my husband on the advice of the oncology nurses & it's brilliant. Works perfectly. So much more comfortable than tubigrip.
A lovely comfortable cover
Tubey grip bandages rolls up and are too light. These covers are thicker, more attractive and stay put. I'd highly recommend it.
I love this cover, I'd seen another lady with one and didn't really understand the value until I got one myself. It gives me confidence that everything's tucked in and I can wear normal clothes when I go out. Love it
I got this for my wife. She finds it really comfortable. An excellent product which we have recommended to her community care team; who are impressed and making others aware.
Good product flexible and comfy x
I got this for my husband and he's so pleased with it, it's so tidy and comfortable.
I love your product! So unique, comfy, perfect.
Like the air vent
I really like the air vent around the PICC area for easy viewing but also for air.
I looked at many options before I purchased yours. Yours was the best quality
I do really like the mesh panel. For my irritated skin it's nice to have some airflow unlike wearing cardigans like I've been doing to keep everything in place.
Love the mesh window
I loved the mesh window, which makes it easy to see my PICC site and ensure it was doing well. I also love that the band kept everything nice and covered (which helped to prevent snags and also made me feel more normal in public.) I also love that it was machine washable.
She had her dressing changed yesterday and the nurse loved it.....I love the cotton lycra blend, love the screen and breathability. We are still loving it.
The product was very comfortable and I would highly recommend it!
We're really thrilled with the cover and grateful for your care!
It's perfect. I can't even express how much more comfortable it is now. There's room for the extension and big bulky alcohol cap, and it doesn't budge.
