The Best Thing Since Sliced Bread??

I was on Tamn's blog looking at her post this morning. I left a comment I thought was a little funny about Labor Day being for mother's who have been through Labor. Then I am about to close out of the page and what do I see??

"Labor Looks" on her sidebar as an add.

I thought... huh, how funny. Wonder what that is. So I click on it.

Labor GOWNS! Like cute, frilly gowns you can wear instead of the boring blue one.

The best thing?? They are so affordable at $48! I don't think I do sarcastic on my blog very well... but I really can't decide how I feel about these.

I'm not at all surprised it was an add on Tamners site. So funny.

They are so modest! Closing all the way up in the back with the gown going below your knee's. Cause I'm sure modesty is an issue while you are birthing a child........
If buying one of these things will make me look as fabulous as this girl when I deliver - sign me up! But can I get that in a guarantee?

What do you think?

Here is the link to this site.

Sigh. Only in Utah.

The Boob Nazi said...

That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen. Do you even care what you look like when multiple people are staring at your vagina? I know I wouldn't!

April said...

OMG I totally think it's important to be modest when my legs are spread for the entire world.

Rach said...

Too funny. I actually just clicked over from TAMN's blog bc I thought your comment was so funny! I actually think it's kind of a cool idea, not to look "cute" as much as the regular hospital gowns are really gross and stained. It's sort of nice to not have to think about 50 other women sweating and bleeding in the same gown (sorry to be gross). And it's a really frumpy time and by the end you feel really gross so I think this would be nice. Not to buy for yourself but for a cool gift or something? But still, funny.

Abra said...

Modesty isn't really going to be an issue when you have that "below the knee" gown hiked up over your peeper.

Also, before labor and during labor, you really just want that sucker outta there so you're not too caught up in how you look when you're worrying about how you're gonna get that watermelon out of an opening the size of a pop bottle lid.
Now they should make a "postbaby" line for those people like me who couldn't fit into their old clothes but couldn't wear the maternity stuff either so I ended up wearing my husbands clothes...

"SIGH"
I hate labor
I really did.
Does it show?

Okay.
Wanna have a baby now that I've made it sound oh so attractive?

Christa said...

I have given birth four times and trust me, you couldn't care less about what you're wearing while you are doing it. My last one was born around 10 minutes after we got to the hospital. Consequently, I didn't even change out of the t-shirt I wore there. I somehow managed to survive. Wearing them during recovery might be fine, but you really don't care what you're wearing while doing that either. So, you decide.

Jo said...

I almost clicked on that link. But I didn't need to, cause you did it for me. I don't know what to think about them. I guess I think it is kind of weird. :::::shaking head:::
what will they think of next??

Erin said...

Do you think that girl really is pregnant, or is she just sporting a pillow?

Jo said...

I don't think anyone has even addressed what to do with it after! 48$ is a lot of money for something that you will throw away after wearing it once. Tell you what, I am NOT going to stick a bloody, mucus-y, who know what else is on it gown in a bag for a few days, take it home dry and crusty and WASH it! No thanks. Now if someone would toss it in the wash right after for a good soak in oxi clean, that would be different. I am quite sure I made my point!

Whitney R said...

this is so funny. I am laughing... hahaha, I'm so glad everyone is having the same reaction I did!

Rach - I'm so glad you came and that you commented! :)

Abra - to answer your question - YES. :)

April - HAHAHHA

LOL.... peeper. hahahah

TJ said...

Ridiculous but hilarious.

Mark and Katie said...

What? I don't get what's so funny. I'm thinking I will need a couple of these when the time comes. So cute.

OK...yeah, like that's really gonna happen.

hello, my name is amber. said...

peeper.... LMAO!
that is ridiculous!

The Korr's said...

So I manage a couple maternity boutiques [www.belliesandblossoms.com] in Vegas and the buyer and I have come across these in the past and have almost peed our pants we were laughing so hard! There are a few different companies who are selling these [http://www.shopbyog.com/] [http://www.dearjohnnies.com/shop/] and they average $100 a piece! Could you imagine?? As someone who has gone through this before, they get dirty. REAL dirty. You change into a new one right after the birth and then another one the next day and possibly one more after that.

Silly. These and 'maternity bras' make no sense to me!!

the letter Bee said...

This is a serious Eye-roller.

Jillene said...

What the H?! Uuuummmm....I have given birth 3 times and let me tell you that I would NEVER wast $48 bucks on a gown that will be covered in blood, mucus and whatever the hell else comes out!! Stupidest thing I have EVER seen!!

rychelle said...

i just recently saw something similar to this in a magazine. they didn't advertise them as labor gowns specifically, and i kept wondering why would you own your own hospital gown??? i just don't get it.

Kristal said...

Hmmmm, $50 bucks to get blood all over it? No thanks. Maybe to wear after so you can feel pretty with your new baby! But then, you'd need it to be a nursing one LOL!

Sara Ann said...

Wow! I am totally buying these for my two pregnant sisters...not! While I do admire these women and their entrepreneurial skills, I think it is interesting how on their site they keep saying how they are affordable, but I don't know anyone who would pay $48 for something you will wear one time, no way you will get all of the crap from giving birth to wash out! Can you imagine "Dr. please be really careful to not let my pretty gown get mussed by all of the crap that is pouring out of my body right now, thank you" I bet TAMN will buy like 5 though:) hee hee.

Mina said...

$48 bucks for something that the hospital offers for free that's going to get covered in ALL SORTS of bodily fluids? I don't think so. Plus, I generally ended up almost naked before my kids were born. Anything on my skin became irritating. And know what? NO ONE CARED, including me.

The product is strictly good for making sarcastic remarks about.

Jillybean said...

Ditto to what Jo and Jillene said.

Stuff gets on your hospital gown.

Cheri said...

Ok, maybe you wouldn't buy it for yourself, but I think rach makes a good point--what about as a gift? If I got one as a gift, I would totally use it. So maybe it should be marketed to rich grandmas or something.

Rowboat said...

this is funny and ridiculous. i'm all for a free hospital gown. honestly, you're gonna use this thing once and then throw the nasty thing away. seriously. and you changed your blog look! when did this happen? i miss everything. anyway, it looks cute!

Tiffany Fackrell said...

So If you take your own gown, I am pretty sure that means you wash your own gown...um no thanks! This is weird...and too funny!

Mommy Madness said...

Save the 49 bucks for a cute nursing bra!☺

Tatton and Kirsten said...

wow...talk about a conversation starter! Seriously though...NO THANKS! I'll ruin the hospitals gowns with my bodily fluid any day before spending my well earned money on a something that GUARANTEED will be ruined before you leave with your baby...I think I went through at least 5 gowns before my stay was up at the hospital...wow...

littlefamilyJLD said...

Ha ha. Yeah right. I remember that my mother in law bought me a cute nightgown (not quite like these) to wear in the hospital when I had my baby. I was too afraid that I would get it all dirty with all the, uh, messy stuff......that I never put it on! I still have it sitting nicely in the bottom drawer with the tags still on, nice and crisp for labor #2.

Lena Gilbert said...

wow i think i'm going to vomit now. I think most nurses would roll on the floor laughing if their patients brought these in. I know I would..seriously? The sad part is is that women actually wear these things..and then they get covered with amniotic fluid, placenta guck, blood and vernix. You're sure to want to use that again.

Life as Ashley said...

I promise you, this will not make you feel prettier during labor and delivery. In fact, you won't even care what you look like. Plus, if they take you back for a c-section. You've just wasted $50. :)

Alexis and Casey Treese said...

This is not a bad idea actually...Look fashionable while giving birth. I get it. These arent really my style though. Perhaps Ill design my own, and Ill wear it with those fabulous red boots, cant you see those on the stirrups. I am a GENIUS!

Strawberry Shortcake said...

Gag... it's like you are going to prom instead of birthing a child. I wish I would have known about this when I went to the hospital. I totally would have bought this ;) It seems like such a deal compared to the thousands of dollars they make you pay to have a child! This is kind of icky... and pathetic to me.

Wendyburd1 said...

sAAAAAAAAADDDDDDD...I thought I was gonna see Whit and Jaren in their present...sniffles...I see, and I KNEW my package would get to you first, since you have been sending mine out for like 2 months!! Have you told Jaren how evil you can get?*sobs*

The Redheaded girl walks over to the bridge and leans against the railing. She gazes down into the murky smelly water, noting the smell, knowing Glade would make it all better...knowing Whitney bought it but used it in her own home for her baby shower. And Red realized life wasn't worth living with such bad smells still in her life.

She had been foolish to believe a potato farmer wife was serious in her contest, after all, she isn't the farmer, JUST the wife,and yes I am ON Ambien trying to be a good writer, a lil hard, but I did think I was gonna see Whit and Jaren modeling their present...and they are not as promised, so I tease the Mrs.Potatohead because my gift got there in less than a week from announcing Whit was one of my 3.........My brain is kkkkkkkkerflukin. Ich spreche Deutsch nicht oder Englisch!

Whitney R said...

Wendy! Calm down.. I have NOT used your Glade. It's in my closet. It was missing a key ingredient and I JUST found it last week. I need to send Tracy and Jillene theirs too. I never said I was punctual. I will send them by Monday.

About the shirt, I said I was going to post about it SOON. I will! I haven't uploaded pictures on my computer yet and today is my thankful post. Tomorrow will be about your present. Please, be patient, my dear friend. :)

hello, my name is amber. said...

whitfriend, you are oh so patient!
WINKETY WINK WINK! ;)
lol... i'm winking, if you didn't catch that. happy turkey day!

i MISS you!

Life as Ashley said...

It can be hard to get things in the mail, especially because you probably live so far from the post office. ;) [I'm winking too]. Still thinking of you everytime I use Glade, and that's good enough for me! :)

Whitney R said...

Oh yeah. And I am NOT JUST a wife!

I'm an amazing wife. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.

hello, my name is amber. said...

you ARE an amazing wife! and you've been so busy! i really don't know how you do it all whitfriend!

Michelle said...

Ya know, I think if they were closer to $5 I might actually buy one. But I could never bring myself to spend $50 on something I would be THROWING AWAY! hahaha. Really though, I never even thought about the gown I was wearing until I looked at pictures later. To this day I look at those gowns and think, "can they GET any uglier!?!" Part of me thinks, "I look crappy enough, couldn't they at least give me a cute gown? Even plain would be better!"

So, my point? Not a bad idea but I'd never spend that much on something I was going to bleed all over then toss. And the modesty part...haaaaaaaa.

K and/or K said...

They are frumpy galore! It just rpoves that people will buy anything...and others will let sponsers sell anything!

Wendyburd1 said...

I know you are an amazing wife. Jaren was just as lucky to find you as you were to find him. That's why you are each others Potatoheads.
