I’m considering one of those pretty chiffon robe type things to get ready in – I thought it would be a bit more dreamy and romantic than just a white version of the standard satin robes people buy for the bridesmaids! I’m thinking something like the below link, (pink or peach trim because I love pink) . I also like the idea that I could take it on my honeymoon, and wear it with sexy lingerie underneath.
Because it’s somewhat sheer I’d probably wear little white pyjamas underneath when I’m getting ready on the morning of. Thing is… it’s likely my fiance’s sister will be getting ready with me and I’m wondering if it’s weird to wear something in front of her that I’d wear later on my honeymoon? I just think it’s a bit of a waste of money to buy two different robes, a sexy one and a getting ready one, but I wondered if it would be uncomfortable for her, not that I’d actually explicitly tell anyone I was going to take it on honeymoon!
Maybe I’m overthinking things, but no one wants to think about their sibling having sex, or wearing lingerie, you know? thoughts?

Like you said, if you don’t tell her, she won’t have any idea. So just don’t talk about the dual usage. If you don’t say anything about it, it probably won’t even really register for her. If you go on and on about how much you love it and how pretty it is, etc. she will probably remember and may even mention it in passing to her brother (“It’s too bad you didn’t see her getting ready; she had the most beautiful robe…”). And then he would mention seeing it on the honeymoon. So not bringing attention to it means not going on about it in any way. If you don’t, it should be fine.

You are right, overthinking.

Unless you explicitly tell her that you “bought this for your honeymoon” then no, it’s not weird.
I also don’t think it’s that weird to be talking about lingerie/being sexy in the context of a wedding. It make make your SIL a little uncomfortable but it’s sort of, just part of it? Like you are marrying her brother, obviously you will be having sex?

I wore my getting ready robe on my honeymoon. Wasn’t weird at all lol. Everyone knows the newlyweds are going to be intimate on their honeymoon, it’s just not something (most) people talk about haha

I agree with PP. only you’ll know. Well unless you’ll have photo shots of you getting ready then hubby will know but thats just hubby.

I don’t see how she would possibly realize that you are also planning on wearing the robe on your honeymoon, and honestly even if she did it wouldn’t matter. People buy new clothes and pyjamas etc. for their honeymoons too and I don’t really see how it’s awkward to discuss it. It’s not like you’re modelling lingerie for her!

Just don’t say “Hey, do you like my robe? Well I’m going to take it on my honeymoon where it will spend most of the time on the floor while I have hot sweaty monkey sex with your brother.”
If you think you think you can manage to have a conversation without saying that, then I think you’ll be fine.

thankfully it’s far enough into the future that you haven’t planted a seed which will result in some kind of “call of the void” word blurt on my part!
Thanks everyone! Glad I was overthinking it because that thing is so pretty and it would be a shame to only wear it one time!

If it’s your sister, meh that’s fine. If your mom, Mother-In-Law, or aunts will be there, then I wouldn’t. I opted for two separate robes (one that’s chiffon and translucent like the one you posted and one that’s white but opague and flowery for getting ready).
It’s very pretty though!
