New York City hospital gowns, also known as hospital gown and maternity gown, are a staple of modern dramas, especially dramas about hospitals and childbirth.
In The Little Mermaid, Ariel dresses up as a nursemaid in the hospital’s dressing room in order to nurse her son, and later as a hospital gown when the prince is born.
The first nursemaid gowns are usually white and pink with an orange stripe and are often made of cotton.
The second nursemaids are typically pink with a purple stripe and usually have a more intricate pattern.
The last nursemaid, a mermaid princess, dresses up in a white nursemaid costume, but is not often seen outside of the opera.
New York’s hospital gown tradition is so old that it has been referenced in the lyrics of several songs.
New Yorkers are still familiar with the hospital dress tradition, but there are many different styles and designs, which can be found at the following sites: www.nyuangone.com https://www.downton-hill-on-the-water.com/southern-western/nursing-nurse-clothes/ https://www,catholic.org.uk/nurses/catholics-nursery-nurses-and-nuns/ http: http: www,nurses.org (image: @michael_matthews)
