You can wear anything -- when I went people were just in normal backpacker gear. I didn't see anything particularly tiger proof!

I think people love or hate the place. I'm no vet, but the tigers looked pretty drugged to me, still it was exciting to get so close (you can pat them) and so is great for pics.

Hi shanna .I was at the tiger temple last month and you can wear anything but if you are wearing pink or red they will make you cover it up as the tigers dont like it.I enjoyed the park it wasnt over run with tourists maybe about 15 or 20 .the tigers are a bit sleepy so it may be true that they are druged. But out of all my pics from thailand the tiger temple ones are the best .Also if possible you should try and get the driver or whoever to stop at a temple only a few minutes before the tiger park i hired a cab from bangkok 3000 baht for 12 hours and was taken to a tiger temple of the same name it was the best temple i went to in thailand .
