    I had a lingerie shower the weekend of my bachelorette party and my friends all got me stuff. Far less awkward 🙂

    I got some myself, and FI is buying me some. I’m so excited to see what he gets! Last time I asked him to buy me lingerie or underwear he got me a bra and a few pairs of panties. Nothing spectacular, but the funny part was that he apparently went into the store and asked “Which bra is the most comfortable?” and got me that one! LOL! I told him after “When you have free reign to buy anything you want for lingerie for your fiance, you’re not supposed to go for comfort!” I’m hoping he learns this time around and gets me something more sexy, less functional. He’s adorable.

    @VirginiaMarie: first your FMIL goes into your room and sees your private toys!, please don’t tell me she’s bought you lingerie too! :O… lol

    i know my bridal party girls have started to buy me lingerie for our bachelorette party, but no female relatives on either side have gifted me lingerie and id like to keep it that way!!!!

    My sister (obviously purchased by my mom since she is 13) gave me a nighty & robe at my shower. Everyone wanted me to pass around all my gifts after I opened them, and they even made me hold up and pass around this nighty. I was blushing after opening it and then had to pass it to my MIL. I was so embarressed.

    @VirginiaMarie: That’s right, I totally forgot about you FMIL’s lack of boundaries. You really do need a tv show VM!

    My MIL gave me a gift and said very loudly, “just something to wear on your honeymoon!”

    the box was empty……ewwww

    VM: could you return the lingerie your MIL got you and exchange it for something else. Would that help the creepy factor?

    Well, I am still pretty far out so no one has brought me any yet. But, I know that my Mama will and my Great Aunt has already told me that she will. lol

    @stlginkgo: I am in tears at your story! That is so creepily hilarious!

    I’m not near that point yet, but I do recall my mother getting my sister a pair of white panties for her honeymoon. They were lace, but beyond granny. I’m going to ahead and call them bloomers. Mom couldn’t fathom why nobody would want to wear them.

    I didn’t vote because I haven’t gotten to that point yet as our wedding is still a couple years out, but this thread reminded me of when my oldest brother got married.

    The first Christmas after my brother and sister-in-law got married, my grandmother (who is known for super religious and/or completely weird and random gifts) gave my SIL a gift box which contained something (I don’t remember now) with a note that said something along the lines of “to keep you cool” and also a lingerie set with a note that said “to heat you up.”  It completely grossed both of them out and it was never used because my brother said it just made him think about our grandmother.  Hahaha…there is no telling what weird thing she will come up with when I get married.  Our family just calls them “Ma-maw gifts” and conveniently tends to “forget” them at our mom’s house until she ends up putting them in her storage room.
