S/O What do you wear in labor?

I remember wearing a tank and nursing bra in labor even in the tub but I cannot for the life of me remember what I wore on the bottom I know I used the ball quite a bit and made a bazillion trips to the bathroom. I am 37 weeks so I don't have time to order anything but I can sew. Any ideas?

I wore yoga pant or those athletic skirts (the jersey knit one you can find at Old Navy for $10) to the birth center. Once labor was in full swing and I was uncomfortable, or in the tub and/or pushing I was naked..... well one with just a bra and once nude.

I'm mobile.... sorry for the typos!

I kept the hospital gown on for both boys births but with my daughters birth last week, I labored the last part In the shower and went straight to pushing after that so I was completely naked. I must say I was burning up so I preferred no clothes on. Not to mention the gown was seriously annoying the crap out of me bc it kept falling off my shoulders!

Wife beater, and PJ pants with DS1. Wife beater and undies for about 5min with DS2, then bottomless /classy broad

ETA: No, I'm wrong. With DS1 it was a HUGE sleep shirt that went past my knees and might as well have been a moomoo.

I prefer to labor nude and shed clothes as labor progresses.

I wore a tank and a yoga skirt. The yoga skirt was around my waist most of the time though. :lol:

The first time, I don't even remember what I wore in early labor, but once things got intense I got in the tub naked and never put clothes back on when I got out. I got chills in transition and my mom put a blanket on me.
The second, I wore a sports bra and comfy yoga capris, but once I started bleeding a lot I ditched the pants. I wore that sports bra the entire labor and pushing/when he was born. I was just so in the moment, I guess I didn't consider taking it off!
