its really the best way to go. save your underwear for at home. you dont want to destroy / bloody up all of your panties. the mesh ones are ugly as sin, but do the job!
as for the hospital. for you. i wore a ribbed tank top and yoga pants the entire time i was in the hospital, just changed them every day! i also wore only a bikini top during labor. felt so much better.
