One to wear with the opening in the back as usual, and another to wear over that like a robe, so you are not so exposed.
Well, say goodbye to your bum being fanned by the arctic breezes of a hospital. The New York designer, Diane Von Furstenberg has redesigned the hospital gown by using elements of her wrap dresses. She chose a thicker fabric that ties at the side and keeps patients warmer. A test is currently being done at the Cleveland Clinic, after which the gowns could roll out into wide-scale production. Men have complained that the patterns were too feminine. Personally, the print of this gown would make me get the heck out of the hospital way faster.
