Hi Kara!

I went in the castle in a really comfortable cotton sundress. I see nothing wrong with going in PJ's though - the castle seems to be a safe haven from any ticket-wielding fashion police, so just about anything goes that is comfortable.

P. S. It's not a silly question; around here, the only silly question is the one that is not asked.

(((((((HUGS)))))))) and Best wishes,

comfy clothes


I'm not sure it matters, as one of the first things they ask you to do is to take your clothes off and put on one of their 'fashionable' hospital gowns, which covers almost nothing.

I'm thinking of taking something that I can wear home when it's all over--something loose and comfortable. I'll have new p.j.s to wear while I'm there, although some of the ladies have posted that they saved them for after they got home and just wore the hospital-provided gowns.

I'm sure I'll use a lightweight robe, though, because I plan to be out of bed as soon as possible.

I wore the clothes I planned on wearing home, baggy sweats. I brought pajamas and a robe with me, but ended up just using the robe. I found it easier to maneuver in the bed with and open back.

warm-up suit to the hosp.
hosp. gown while there - with my own robe
same warm-up back home.
You change as soon as you get there into the hosp. robe...I agree with not taking new p.j.'s - they might get stained...

What to wear there and back.

I plan to buy one of those really comfortable, two-sizes-too-big, t-shirt, legging outfits to wear there and back. I'm still trying to decide if I should buy pj's or just wear those wonderful "leave-nothing-to-the-imagination" gowns. I'll probably take a robe, though in a pinch, you can use a second hospital-provided gown and just turn it around backwards over the first.

My Mom, bless her heart, last night offered me one of her brand-new satin, thin-spaghetti strap gowns with a strip of see-through lace running down it. If I wore it, I would either slide right out of bed onto the floor (way too slick!) or have my doctor drooling all over me (way too sexy!). I told Mom I'm going for surgery, not to win a beauty contest and comfort is far more important. I'm sure I won't care what I look like.

i wore large sweats to the hospital with some slip on shoes. it was the same outfit i wore home. the first thing the nurse said when she saw me dressed to go home was how comfortable i looked. that is the key thing, comfortable. you should wear something that is easy to get in and out of. at the castle i found that my own robe and underwear, with the hospital johnny worked well once i was up and moving around. i found that underwear two sizes too big are good because they give some support to your and a sense of privacy. good luck to you.

I wore what I had intended to wear home - baggy sweats and a tshirt, but I ended up saying the heck with changing for a 10 minute ride home, and wore my jammies home - went in the door and right to my throne without changing.
