We have all heard of brides repurposing their mothers ‘and grandmothers’ wedding dresses for their special day, resulting in beautiful photo ops, sentimental moments, and precious, sometimes even royal, heirlooms that are passed down to the next generation. One bride, however, took this vintage makeover trend to uncomfortable new heights and turned her mother’s old wedding dress into “sexy panties” for her big night. Because nothing is as fun as your mom’s clothes, right?
“Another mother’s wedding dress,” the garment creator wrote in a Facebook post, including a photo of the bride on the slip with a framed portrait of her mother. “A sexy pair of briefs to wear during your hair and make-up as well as your wedding night.”

After all, this is the internet folks.

I definitely love myself a good shameful side but I almost feel for this bride. Sure, in some ways, wearing your mother’s lingerie may be a little unconventional, but to paraphrase Kacey Musgraves: “Fix your own fences and own your own madmen. “Like most of the weird stories on this site, as long as you aren’t Hurt anyone, live your best life, even if that means wearing your mom as clothes like lingerie, you do.
Moral of the story? Perhaps try to keep the “something old” for your veil, dress or ring and the “something blue” for your lingerie as there is a risk of them getting toasted on the internet. Or live your best life whatever makes you – and your partner – happy on your wedding night. Get a girl!
