Keep it on.  After a couple of weeks maybe you could try a compression shirt from Underworks or similar company.  I used Underworks #997 as a transition garment and it was MUCH more comfortable.

Keep it on.

Nip....

Taking the vest off for a few minutes at a time to 'air out' the chest letting it breath a little and for showers couldn't hurt. I would say 'yes' keep it on for the first couple of days following surgery, after that, what's a few min at a time gonna do?

Yes, Bambu...   Every second of every day...  Even in the shower! 

OK, sorry about that.  I missed the 5 minutes part - must've been reading too fast for my brain to keep up.  Of course it's OK to take it off for a few minutes at a time.    :)
