So I had 2 ladies from work today ask me my underwear size. I was like, wth? They told me it was for my shower gifts. When I gave them a weird look they told me that for our shower, we are supposed to get lingerie. I thought people gave you gifts from your registry! FI’s mom is gonna be there and I will be so AKWARD! LOL. Is this the norm?

I only got one pair of undies for my shower and I was a bit disappointed, I’m not going to lie. I love cute underwear, LOL! I think it’s pretty normal to get lingerie at showers, I wouldn’t get freaked out. And I’m pretty sure your Future Mother-In-Law knows you guys have a sex life, don’t worry! 😉

My work does this too. I have no idea why co-workers think this is appropriate.
I have requested… no, begged, my co-workers not to throw this kind of shower. If it’s all they want to do, just sign a card instead, I’ll be MUCH happier.
I would rather not think of my co-workers while getting hot and heavy with my Fiance, thank you very much!
ETA: Close girlfriends holding a “lingerie shower” fine. I can deal with that. But CO-WORKERS?

Now Lingerie Showers are the rage. Just tell your co-workers, who are giving the shower, to be tasteful and just have fun w/ it.

In my circles, it’s pretty normal to get lingerie for bridal shower gifts…LOL. My sister got quite a lot of it at hers. I admit that I was sneaky and included her size in the invite and asked people to keep it a secret. The look on her face was priceless. Of course she tried on every piece of lingerie OVER her clothes…LOL.

I don’t own any lingerie, would be mortified if one of my showers did this….

We always give lingerie as gifts at the bachelorette party – never heard of getting it as a shower gift. Hmmmm……

I think this is actually the traditional thing to do. I can understand being weirded out by it though.

The new thing is a lingerie shower but I’ve never been to one, but I have seen the bride get lingerie at every shower I’ve gone to.

We do bach party/lingerie showeres all the time! But I have never seen lingerie at a regular shower.

I went to a shower last summer where every single guest except me bought the bride lingerie, including her mom and her FMIL! I was embarrassed for her; I guess I’m a prude, lol.
Can you have the hostess call and explain to guests that it’s not a lingerie shower? Or she could make up a theme (like “kitchen wares”) and call all the guests pretending like she forgot to put in on the invitation? Then, you wouldn’t have to worry about your co-workers buying you lingerie and your Future Mother-In-Law seeing it. 🙂

I think it’s super common.

It’s common. It’s called a Personal Shower, and usually is either agreed upon by the bride or the group planning the shower.
Also, it tends to happen more when someone doesn’t have a registry.

i was actually really really sad – not one person bought me lingerie for my shower 🙁
i was hoping for it, i had to go buy my own and that stuff aint cheap!
i’ve always heard them done as lingerie showers, but i think it pretty common to get them as a bridal shower gift as well – i got stuff of my registry though
