LOL now everyone has to go find penoirs that aren’t sexy to prove me wrong.  *sigh*

I give up.

Cupcake Parties are a pseudonym for adult parties. It may be a brand, like Pampered Chef is for cookware. They sell adult favors like lube, toys, etc from a catalog. I haven’t been to one, but mom said the parties are cupcake themed and then you buy naughty stuff. She said she THOUGHT it’d be fun (and, her friend was throwing it) but then was “disturbed” by all the items. Oh well, at least I know my mom isn’t into toys, barf Yell

I actually like that last one you posted, vegan. Although, my husband has a very different idea of what is sexy on me, and that involves something a lot racier and some high heels, lol. Or, just the heels.

Wow. Those peignoirs ARE sexy! I’m filing this info away for later…

I went sleepwear shopping with my mom and grandma for my sister’s shower. My mom kept picking out these floor-length ultra-conservative nighties and kept telling my grandma to put down the crotchless panties. It was hilarious, but I stayed out of it. 🙂

My mother recently sat me down and informed me that my husband to be would probably expect me to wear something a little…”extra nice” on the night of our wedding. I’m fairly certain she’d have gone into a little “ladies talk” had I not managed to interrupt her with the fact that, at 30, I really had this covered. She informed me yesterday that my shower gift is for me but Not for me, it’s mostly for my husband to be. I just now realized what she may have meant. *Sigh* We’re close but not *that* close.

Shopping with your gram for peignoirs might be kind of sweet, if you stick to stuff that’s pretty/not too racey. I think the modern peignoirs are kind of nice, to be honest.

My family threw me a bridal shower last weekend and gave me lingerie instead of kitchen things.  It was slightly uncomfortable, but not so much until the last bag, which contained a thong proclaiming, “You May Now F— The Bride”

It was a gag gift from my sister.  Unfortunately, my 89-year old grandmother was sitting too far away to read what they said and, as everyone was laughing, asked me to tell her what they said.  I apparently turned the same red shade as the panties…

ejs–yeah, Fiance is the same way.  We have totally different views on what is sexy.  It’s impossible to take him clothes shopping with me.  For a man, he sure likes it.  He drags me to all the shortest, most low cut, tightest things he can find while I’m off trying to pick out more, shall we say, subtle clothes. Undecided

I think he might lol at me if I showed up with a sexy look and a vintage peignoir on, even if it is totally sheer.  Though maybe not. After looking at all those on ebay yesterday, I’m a little tempted to see what his reaction would be.

I think it is a tad awkward but mostly very sweet! I think it will mostly be looking at pretty pieces and enjoying an afernoon together! My mom wants to buy me some but mostly because she loves pretty things and I know we WON’T be talking about the wedding night 😉

I can understand why you might feel awkward about this, but it could be fine. My mom often gives lingerie bridal shower gifts to the 20 and 30-something women in our family. She shops at Natori (natori.com) and buys very tasteful silk and lace gowns and robes. Not seedy at all.

@charismaclassic: oohhhh noooo! Too funny.

I am loving this post! Grandma with crotchless panties in her hand LMAO!  I guess since my grandma flashed me ner “new boob” (reconstruction after cancer) I am not shocked by much. I say go for it, you never know how much these small sacrifices might mean to you down the road, and they probably mean even more to her.
