It's hard to feel any sense of dignity when you're wearing a hospital gown.

  17. Super cute! I agree, there is no way to be dignified in a hospital gown. Although, some local hospitals in Cleveland have been working on a redesign that wraps around the front more like a robe, so there's hope for the future!
