I went to China in July and went to buy dresses the first day I was there. So the plane lands in the morning, went home and shower and off we went. The kicker was that I went to the house, took a shower and washed my newly dyed hair. I dyed it reddish pink the night we flew. So of course the color is coming off, hair is dripping wet… all over my undies. It made my underwear have streaks of pink… looking like periods stains. But no time to unpack any other clothes(i had one set of clothes in a backpack) so off we went to look at dresses…

elliesunshine:  Why would you be more comfortable with your socks off? I would think having socks on would feel less icky if you aren’t allowed to wear shoes.

 Edit: The most embarrassing thing I’ve worn to a fitting is the extra weight I gained. Dress shopping wasn’t too bad, but between the time my dress came in and my first fitting, I gained 5-ish lbs and now the dress doesn’t zip. 🙁

My first time shopping I thought I was prepared, wore black nylons, had white heels and a strapless nude body shaper. Looking in the mirror with this outfit I realized i looked like a very poor excuse for a playboy bunny. Think Bridget jones but far less sexy.

Hmm lol one lady was pulling the dress up on me and was like “ohhhh spank me!” I have had this pair of underwear my fiancé got me for so long I forgot they even said anything on the butt… It said “spank me” across the butt. I died.

Probably not as bad as the others, but… Wonder Woman panties.

lindsey2015:  I accidentally wore panties that say ‘kiss me’ on the bum. Similar situation where I’ve had them so long that I forget they say that. Thankfully the girl that was helping me into my dress didn’t even mention it!

I wore stupid, old grey marle underwear. My sister and mother were like “why wouldn’t you wear nicer underwear…? *shrugs*

As a former bridal consultant, wearing anything is a bonus! once helped an ex vegas showgirl bride (67) into A gown. She was nude, tan, very wrinkly. Wouldn’t have been so awkward but she needed help balancing her leg to step in bc she refused to put them over her head. I can’t escape the picture.

This is a fun thread! The actual thing I was wearing wasn’t embarassing itself, but apparently the consultant who was measuring me had on the exact same bra as me and mentioned it. And then that lead to my matching undies and a whole 5 minute long conversation about my underwear as I am standing in it!
