Always in fashion

I'm ordering supplies this morning, and found this picture in the online catalog.





I just love the way they try to make the flimsy white paper gown look sexy. Maybe they should add a caption that says "Perfect for work, cocktail parties, and medical exams."

I love how the plastic tie barely fits around her (very slim woman). Anyone slightly over weight or male has absolutely no hope... I mostly tell my patients not to bother with the tie because I come in and they have to tie it so tight they can't breathe.

Obviously a case of "one size fits none."

2 sizes. 2 big. 2 little.

Ooooh, I gotta get me one of those. I mean, hey, a gown that tears if you move while trying to belt it with a plastic tie that's never long enough? /sarcasm

You know why her hands are behind her back? She's trying to hold it closed enough to prevent a draft. ::snicker::

theristy - diet coke therapy needed asap!

Available in other colors for after Labor Day, right?

Mrs. Higrens said...

Plastic tie? Those are the fancy-schmancy ones!



ps - word ver: trafic (what goes by when wearing the cheapo ones that gap enough to show everything they should be covering)

That is false advertising. No one ever gets to wear one of those with the opening in the back.

Hey Doc. The lady would make a burlap sack look good, So my point---quit kvetching and enjoy the view.

kvetching is Irish Catholic for complaining for the uninitiated.

I think you should provide real cloth exam gowns in appropriate sizes, one size does NOT fit all.
My primary care doctor has always done this!

And wouldn't we all like to have a patient that hot? Instead of the 324 lb man who hasn't bathed in quite some time....

Oooh...I've got a wedding coming up in a few weeks. Think I could get one in black?

Do these come in different colors and patterns? If so, I would like three in black. Thanks!

My gynecologist has cloth gowns and also has stirrup cozies. Now if only she'd put trivia questions on the ceiling like the blood-donation place I used to go to, she'd be perfect.

"Show them you have style when they tell you to turn and cough!" That could be one heck of a commercial!

I have to admit to being highly amused- The last time I had to wear a hospital gown it was of cloth like material with some funky heater vents and a very nice, secure tie.

Granted, when I woke up I was in the typical, thin cloth one that makes it very easy to flash all who stand behind me...

Tee said...

I have to know where you found that lovely little gown so I can make my doctor order some! Heaven knows I'd gladly see the doctor more often if I looked that good in a hospital gown!

Well that's pretty, but I suspect that particular woman would look good even if she was dressed in flour bags.

I love the doctors who have cloth gowns. also have to be somewhat better for the environment, I'd think, even if they are a little less convenient.
