Huh, I never heard of asking for all your specs.  Are the guests not buying from your normal registry?

It’s a shame no one has started doing lingerie registries lol I would tell her that because you struggle with fit, you don’t think it’s a good idea for people to choose bras for you.  Maybe they can do gift cards for lingerie instead?

Maybe you can give her the size and the type of bras you have tried and liked and also hint that you like the nighties and undies more.  The size will be helpful.  If you really don’t like them return them.

Sounds like she’s trying to throw a lingerie shower which frankly is not appropriate for every bride. Personallyif someone had one for me it old all end up in the bottom of mydrawer. I would just be honest and make sure you are to the point and she doesnt think it’s a joke. tell her how much you appreciate everything she is doing for you but you aren’t comfortable with other people buying you bras or lingerie. Hopefully that will be enough for her to change her theme

@soonergirl518:  I agree.

I’m a 38 F and I wouldn’t want other people to buy me bras.  I love pretty things and would LOVE to have a supply of fun stuff, but my bras are a) really expensive (almost always over $100) and b) fit is such a personal thing and your boob size changes all the time, so I think that I would end up with a bunch of things that I can’t wear.

I’d just tell her again that you’re really particular about the bras you wear and that you don’t think that it’s a good idea of people to buy them for you.  Gift cards would be cool.  Be blunt.
