I wore sweat pants or pajama pants but had mine done in Mar when it was still cold. I’d think shorts would work fine too.The ones I found that I didn’t like were with elastic around the ankles- too hard to get off & on
Anything that is lose fitting and comfortable. No need to buy anything special. Just wear what you would wear to lounge around at home. The hospital will probably require you to wear sturdy, slip on shoes.

I wore a combination of comfortable shorts and sweat pants, I cut the elastic on the sweat pants if it was too tight.
@pamsknees@Jaycey@Pumpkln the majority of my lounging clothes are leggings, I'm wondering if those would be too tight. I did get some Crocks to wear after the surgery. I figured they would light weight and easy to slip off and on.

The Lounge Doctor is also a good choice, they come in different sizes and will fit you better.
