Another granny undie "fan" here. Over 2 years on and I still haven't gone back
As for clothes, DS was a winter baby, so had some yoga pants, stretchy PJ bottoms, t shirts and a couple of cardy's as my wardrobe, and took my soft robe to keep warm during night feeds. All very soft and comfy
Will be pretty much taking the same things for DD's birth in a few weeks
ETA, throw some socks in too incase your feet get cold.

I didn't have a c section, but as a PP said, black leggings were good. They hold the lovely great big pads firmly in place! Don't forget to consider nightie with stretchy front or buttons if you go down that path and plan in breastfeeding. Also, my milk coming in made me go from DD cup to something gigantic... Some tops I had just weren't roomy enough...

I wish I'd been better prepared in terms of what I took to wear! I ended up having an emergency c-section so most of the clothes I'd taken turned out to be very uncomfortable.
Looking back, I'd take (for a 4-5 day stay)
-2-3 of yoga pants/shorts (depending on the weather where you are) or pants/shorts with a soft and adjustable waistband,
-6-10 pairs of comfortable undies, (don't take underwear with an elastic waistband either!)
-2 or 3 nighties
- A couple of extra long singlets (you won't be keen to show off that belly just yet and normal length singlets tend to ride up a little.) Extra bonus if these singlets have built in support so you don't have to wear a bra.
- A pair of slippers.
- 2-3 pairs of comfortable socks
- 3 or so maternity bras, as in my experience they tend to get soaked with milk pretty often! haha.
Good luck! Hope it all goes perfectly for you x
