My jaw dropped when I read this, I certainly hope it is not a tradition! And if it is, it is one I will skip!

Ha, I’ve never heard of this (and I hope Mr.ND’s ma hasn’t, either). I don’t particularly feel like handing over my measurements and having anyone other than him and I knowing what I’ll be wearing once we’re married, whether it’s under-the-dress-lingerie or under-the-sheets-lingerie.

It could be in some circles…my (very conservative) Mother-In-Law gifted me wedding night lingerie at my bridal shower. It was a surprise to open, that’s for sure! It was already awkward, and then my friend blurted out “Don’t tell J it’s from his MOM” and I felt awful because she got offended…oh so very awkward.

Never heard of this tradition!!! My soon to be mother in law and i are really close, we go shopping together and stuff like that, i spend a good amount of time with her. We went shopping one day and there was a lingerie store next door, shes like “lets just look for fun” OHH NOO, the store was more like a sex shop then lingerie!! it was so embarrassing but i didnt want to be rude so i made one little loop in the front of the store, acted like i was looking at the minimal about of lingerie they had and bolted out the door!!! LOL

I might find it a bit weird, but at the end of the day… knock yourself out, I love lingerie, and if I don’t love what she picked I smile, say thanks and never wear it. Big whoop.

It’s certainly not a tradition in my family.

Maybe she was thinking of the wedding nightgown and pegnoir set that was tradiitional when she got married.
