    What do you wear in the hostpital?

    A different thread made me think of this question.
    What do you wear in the hospital?
    Obviously if there is surgery of some sort I would wear a johnny, but what about the other times?
    I have major sweating issues, so I try to dress as comfortably as possible. I keep the thermostat down low, and usually wear pj pants/sweats, a tank top (not a camisole kind) to allow the PICC line to be checked easily, and a lightweight zip-up hoodie so that I'm not "hanging out".
    The other issue is my edema. I have very bad edema that causes me to gain/lose anywhere from a few pounds to more than 12 or 14 pounds in a day. So it's makes wearing regular clothing (pants, jeans, button down shirts, bras) for a long time, really uncomfortable.
    If I'm bumming around a hospital room, there's no reason for me to dress "up" lol.

    When with the slightest possibility, I wear regular clothing.
    Really don't like walking around in pj's and a robe when in hospital. Will wear pants, a bra, shirt, shoes.
    Only not when it's not possible, like post some surgeries. Like my tx :-)

    It's always shorts and t-shirt for me and a hood if I'm cold. The only time I wear jeans is the day I go home.

    I usually just wear a camisole under a regular tank or tshirt with a zip up hoodie and pj pants or sweats. I don't wear regular bras b/c I ALWAYS end up having a chest xray done the day I do, lol. Then it gets all awkward having to take my bra off while my shirt is still on and then just carry it back to my room...no thanks! I think it's a little more comfortable wearing the camisoles, too, b/c I'm not wearing a bra yet still feel supported. I also only wear jeans the day I go home. While I don't actually get dressed and make myself look good however, I do have a weird thing about making all of my tank-and-pj pants combos match...it makes me feel a little better about myself while I'm just bumming around a hospital room feeling otherwise icky. I guess my thought is, while everything relating to my health and body is in the crapshoot, at least my outfit matches! lol.
