Delivery Gowns - Fabulous or Faux Pas

I'll be the first to admit that those drab hospital delivery gowns they give you are the worst, they're itchy and not to mention ugly. Ok ugly is an understatement, so much so that I refused to wear one and went au natural (TMI) for my first birth. My midwife kept asking if I wanted to put one on and I was like I'm good, but I also had my son in a 'birthing center' not a hospital so they were a little more easy going about the whole nudity thing. 

However, I've been noticing more and more on maternity boutique sites that they're offering more stylish and comfortable delivery gowns, most for a pretty penny. And who wants to shell out $100+ for something that let's face it gets ruined after one wear, not me. I mean it's great in theory but in practicality not so much, well unless you like wearing things once then, net gain.

Nonetheless, I did happen to stumble upon some fabulous delivery gowns at Stella Maternity that we're extremely reasonable not to mention pretty fierce looking. This might even make me re-think my whole au natural situation ( I wonder if it'd be appropriate to wear heels with them, kidding)...
