My mom keeps telling me “Sweetie you need a pretty nightgown for the hospital to wear as your first moments as a mother!” And I keep telling her that I don’t wear nightgowns! I wear tanks and PJ bottoms at home, and would probably just wear the hospital gown until I could put on a tank and PJs/yoga pants at the hospital too.
But on a recent visit to the mall, I stopped in to look at nightgowns anyways at Belk. They were all so expensive!! And many were frumpy or just not the right kind of support on top for a hospital room with visitors. I didn’t want to pay $50 for a shirtdress. The ones at Motherhood were nice, but a little too skimpy as well for my comfort.
And then I found the above robe by Nautica! Modern and pretty – and something I will definitely use again. A little expensive, but also 30% off! I like that it has two ties to keep it secure, and I think with a nursing cami underneath and either just underwear or the matching super big, dark colored, loose bottoms it will be a comfortable, warm and stylish nightgown alternative. I can see myself wearing this around the house in the first few weeks as well!
