Castle wear vs home wear

Did most of you wear the hospital garb or bring your own? Would you all reccommend gowns or pajamas? I was thinking for the times we must walk. Any ideas?

Castle wear vs home wear


I wore the beautiful hospital gown with my own robe until my IV was removed and then I put on my own gown. It just made me feel better and fresher.

Some ladies who had catheters say that gowns are easier than pajamas with pants.

It really is just whatever your personal preference is. There is nothing wrong with wearing the hospital gown and letting them do the laundry.

Best wishes!

Castle wear vs home wear

Hi! I also opted to wear the lovely hospital attire. It was just easier for me, especially since I also had three surgical drains hooked up to me! (Not everyone has those, of course.)

If you decide to take your own gown or nightshirt (which I would recommend over pj's -- one piece is just easier than two) make it the most comfy one you have, and make sure it washes up well, just in case you stain it! Best wishes to you.

I also wore the castle wear. I did try to wear my own gown on day 2 but started bleeding from my incision and had to change back to their gown. I did have my own robe and that covered enough when I did my walking.

Castle wear vs home wear

I wore the hospital gown and the robe with it. It was fairly convenient. I had a catheter and an I.V. and I was bleeding down below with the hospital packing and pads to keep me from leaking. Didn't even bother with my own bathrobe. (I did bring it but didn't even get to unpack it! Was in less than 24 hours!)

Wear what you think you will be comfy in. If you are in for more that a couple of days you might want to wear your own stuff. Bring it just in case you want a touch of home.

Thank you for the advice. I think it will be castle wear then. I will bring my own robe for a touch of home.
