I can’t relate, but I do think it is very sweet of her to want to share this with you. It is not like she is going to be with you in the room on the wedding night, so it should be okay.

lol! My grandma and I are really close, and don’t really talk about that stuff either, but I would totally take her along shopping for lingerie. She and I always have so much fun, and I could just see it being a great, hilarious experience. I might just have to set it up! haha Thanks for the idea!Tongue out

By the way, I say go for it! There might be some awkward moments, but it will probably be fun!

Yah, my mom wants to take me lingerie shopping. We are pretty close but it still makes me uncomfortable! She also thinks that I am still a virgin so I know she is going to give me some ‘”wedding night” advice. Awkward.

My mom took me shopping for wedding lingerie and it wasn’t bad! We didn’t even allude to sex, we just oohed and ahed over the pretty things. It can be a relatively normal shopping experience! 🙂

Lol.  Do they even still make peignoirs?  I used to eye them up in the vintage section on eBay!  Your grandma is cute.  It sounds like it could border on awkward, especially if she gives you any “advice” about the wedding night, but it also sounds sort of old-fashioned charming for your grandmother to want to get you some pretty stuff for your wedding night, and hey, I love lingerie and free lingerie even more, so I’d take her up on it!

I TOTALLY cannot relate to this one!  I think it could be nice if you keep it as innocent as possible.  Did she specifically say it was for your wedding night?  Maybe you could just look at some pretty/silky nightgowns and have a similar experience vs. picking out full on lingerie that you will be wearing on your wedding night!

No you are not overreacting, and I can see how this may be uncomfortable. I honestly wouldn’t have a problem with this, my grandmother used to flash us lol. I would feel arkward if it were my Future Mother-In-Law.

Dude, my mom bought me flavored lube one time (she thought she was being cool). I would be 100% ok with just lingerie and my grandma….Tongue out

Just pick something out sweet, nothing too risque =].

Aaaaaaaaaaaw how sweet of her! I wish my grandma was still alive… I would bring her with me shopping for lingerie. And then have some sex talk – why not? I speak of everything I’m not afraid or ashamed of!

my mil bought be lingerie for my shower… and my mom bought me a “nighty” during a prehoneymoon/birthday shopping spree. my mil’s i didn’t have any option, as it was a gift and a surprise to me (but she has great taste so even if it was a little awkward, oh well!) and my mom’s wasn’t very riske, but then she had to talk to the cashier about why we were buying all of the stuff and the lady made a comment about how i didn’t need the clothes b/c i’ll be staying in my room the whole time anyway. i wanted to run away, why would you say that to my mom!

my suggestion would be to just go, and not look at anything too revealing. you can buy cute things that aren’t all see through and lace, and then it wouldn’t be so bad.

ejs: Flavored lube?!  I would turn sixteen shades of red if my mom did that for me.

Great advice about keeping the selection tame–nipple tassels and crotchless red and black thong might not be the best idea.

Hahaha i’m sure this isn’t funny for you at all but I have to say this is pretty funny, mostly because if my grandmother offfered I would be mortified lol. It is very sweet for her to want to share this with you and you totally did the right thing by agreeing and thanking her. Like another poster said, I would find the prettiest, most beautiful things you can – ooohh and ahh over lace and flowers and ribbons and cut of it and details and focus on that instead. It may be totally totally awkward, but it could turn out to be lots of fun and a nice memory you have with this woman.

My grandma is very open about these sorts of things, so I wouldn’t be surprised if she does the same thing one day. Even though we can talk about pretty much anything, I think I’d still feel a little awkward shopping together for lingerie, so I definitely sympathize with you. But, I think if you can keep the conversation on how pretty everything is and away from sex (like Miss Ribbons and her mom), it should be fine 🙂 Good luck!
