I wore white lingerie the other night for my boyfriend. I had avoided wearing white all this time even though we’ve been together 4 1/2 years because deep down I always thought that the color had some signifigence to like getting engaged or married. Well, I know my boyfriend loves lingerie and I wanted to suprise him and thought maybe I should just get over the color white thing I’m just being silly. well I wore the white neglige that I’d been saving and he loved it, but, wearing it brought out warm fuzzies and somehow felt like we were engaged or married or something.
I just kindof regret wearing it because it felt completly different emotionally for some reason, like I could be more open or like we were closer and I feel bad like I spoiled something that was so special; like I can never get it back. Has anyone else felt this way? Is the wedding night completly different emotionally? Is wearing white on your wedding night like the once in a lifetime feeling you get of wearing white om you’re wedding day?

I really feel like you’re overthinking this.

@Livelifeveryday: I have never heard of this before and I cannot relate to it or understand it at all..it is just not a concern that would ever occupy my brain.

I don’t plan on wearing white lingerie on my wedding night and I never even heard of it having any kind of special significance until I read your post.
I’d just buy some new white lingerie for your wedding night and try not to worry about it.

white lingerie should not spoil anything for you. When you are engaged it will feel different, and not because of the color of your outfit.

I think the last thing on your SO’s mind was the color of the lingerie you were wearing
don’t worry about it

it should not spoil anything at all! however, traditionally – the while lingerie brides wear on their wedding night was to be bought by their mother… as a “rite of passage” type of thing. ( I learned this when buying a gift for a lingerie party!) But, I don’t think anyone follows that anymore!

@Tphan: +1. And it seems to be the common concensus that everyone is so exhausted on their wedding night that a wild night of passion is not in the cards anyway (myself included, it was the last thing on our minds when we finally finished our 20 hour day.)

My first thought was “the only problem with white is that it’s hard to wash, especially as white only machine washes tend to be high temperature compared to a mixed wash”.
Beyond that… it would never have occurred to me to be concerned with the colour of my bras and pants.

@Livelifeveryday: I wore black on our wedding night, once I sobered up enough to put something on.
If you’re doing the deed now, what’s the color of your g-stirng have to do with anything?

@Livelifeveryday: It’s an interesting concept…but totally flawed in practice….80% of my underwear is white…and I never paid much attention to it.

@Livelifeveryday: I don’t think it’s really that big a deal but I understand where you’re coming from. I’ve intentionally never purchased white lingere, I’ve always thought of it as a wedding night thing as well. I know lots of other people don’t see it that way, but I do.
