Looking for knee length sleeveless nightie with boob support.
Going into hospital for a lengthy stay and from experience hospital wards are roasting hot so looking for cotton.

Bravissimor are the only place that do decent boob supporting nighties. How about pyjama pants and a vest top with a non underwired bra underneath for support?

Thanks for the Bravissimo tip, bit pricey for me shock

Going infor hysterectomy, nightdress will be practical IMO.

How about a nightie with one of these underneath?

I had gynae surgery and wore pyjamas as I fekt a bit exposed in a nightie, but its whatever you are comfortable in.

Just been in hospital and I was ridiculously hot. I found that a Bravisimmo sleep vest was great with light pj bottoms and was all
I could sleep in - I then had an oversize nightie to throw on if I was been wheeled anywhere.

Anon, did you have catheter/staples/stitches? Don't fancy anything with a waist band.

my catheter was taken out the morning after surgery. When I came back from surgery I was on a morphine pump and off my head! I stayed in my hospital gown until the morning after. The following morning my drips came down, the catheter came out, I had a wipe down with help from relative then put pjs on. I had stitches but I bought loose pyjamas and I moved the waistband so they didn't touch the sutures.
