I know Victoria Secret has a “wish list” you could use for this.

I think it’s a cute idea so you don’t get things that are the wrong size or not your taste,  I have never seen someone do this personally so I don’t know if it is considered good manners or not.

I haven’t heard of this. I might just be old fashioned, but I think this is kind of tacky.  Usually any sort of lingerie that may be given as a gift at a bachelorette party is given with a gift receipt.

I think that’s a great idea, I’d never thought of it before – would have come in handy for a few lingerie showers I went to where I wasn’t sure of the bra & undie size of the bride.  I know Amazon has some sort of universal registry thing where you can add stuff from any site on to your amazon reg; you could set up a “private” registry just for your girlfriends with all the lingerie 🙂

I really like the idea and if I were a guest looking at a registry would help me see the size and style of the bride.  I think like any other registry, you wouldn’t be obligated to purchase off of the registry but you could use it for ideas.

I like this idea to know the size of the bride, but I think at the same time it could be a little weird.I also think most people who give that type of gift will include a receipt. The other thing is that if these are your closest friends/family they will see what size you are and then go off of that. The women at Victorias Secret (and im sure other places too) are VERY good at helping people choose sizes. My Fiance got me lingerie for Valentines day last year and it fit perfectly because the saleswoman had him describe my breasts by comparing them to fruits!!! And then usually a S/M from most lingerie stores is pretty close to where you can wear either. Maybe you could mention your concern about this to your Maid/Matron of Honor so she can remind everyone to get a gift receipt with their purchase?

I buy a lot of my lingerie at La Perla. The consultant there has my size and things I enjoy saved in my file so people can be helped if they come in and want to buy me things for my lingerie shower. I’m sure some of the other lingerie stores or places like Nordstrom will do the same.

I’m seconding Amazon as a registry in case you want to add something from indie sellers. Its very handy!

i don’t know how i’d feel about registering for lingerie, or seeing lingerie on someone’s registry. i got some lingerie (surprisingly cute and perfect for me) from my mil at my shower, and while i love it, it was totally weird opening it in front of all of my friends and family, including my grandmother. it was so awkward.

I personally would not do this. The point of giving lingerie at these events is to give some nice things, but also some trashy and scandolous pieces. Where is the fun in registering? Maybe I go to very different parties, but no one is giving away $300 La Perla bras.

I think Fredericks has one too.
