Moms-to-Be Are Packing Their Own Maternity Garb For Delivery

Cotton hospital gowns have been the butt of peek-a-boo jokes for years. As stylish women head to the delivery room, the much-maligned cover-ups have gotten a long overdue makeover. From added colors and chic prints to new cuts that showcase a mama's assets, we've rounded up a handful of "bring your own" hospital gowns.

I bled over EVERYTHING. Unless I bought 3 - 5 changes of my own robes, I'd rather have the hospital deal with my dirty laundry. :)

Yeah, Anon @5: I have comfy but cute nursing PJs and a robe packed :)

My hospital doesn't allow anything but the hospital gown to be worn during l+d. Further, I don't know why you'd want to spend almost $100 on something that will get sweaty, bloody, pukey, etc.

I actually didn't want to be wearing anything after the delivery. They had a hard time keeping clothes on me! Only family and very close friends came to visit at the hospital, so I made sure to keep the blankets all around me.

I never understood why one would care what she is wearing during delivery. You get super gross and are pretty distracted at the time. Then after I was cleaned up, I just wanted to wear comfy sweats, not another gown, no matter how cute. Plus, most of these are pretty pricey to wear for a few hours. But to each her own.
