I have a phobia about plain white underwear. I can NOT wear them. And it's not what you think. A while back in the 7th grade I had a pair of stark white undies. They were a little uncomfortable, but they were cute so I wore them anyway. It was not a pleasant day with all the shifting and wedgie picking on top of the normal insecurities that the 7th grade offers. Long story short, I somehow made the connection that wearing all white underwear equated to having a bad day. Every time. I rationally stopped wearing them, and never bought another white pair again.
A couple of years ago, I received a coupon from Victoria's Secret telling me to come on in for my "no purchase necessary pair of free underwear." I was stoked but when I got there they only had white ones left. I thought maybe I could break the curse but more importantly I couldn't very well explain to the sales lady that I no longer wanted the freebies without coming across like a total nutjob. I bravely left the store and put those suckers in my drawer for a few weeks, every so often eyeballing them with suspicion. Eventually, I picked a cozy night in with Nat and wore them in the confines on my own house. They looked good. I washed them. With something red. (Don't judge me on my poor laundry habits!) The underwear came out pink. OBVIOUSLY, the world does not want me to have white underwear!!! This is a clear omen. White underwear do not belong around me.
So WHAT am I going to wear under my wedding dress? To be honest, I could wear leopard print under there and nobody would be the wiser, but generally speaking it is something to think about. My friend Kristen approached me with this dilemma in regard to her fast approaching nuptials. Victoria's Secret suggests a super cute white thong embellished with the word "Bride" in pretty rhinestones. But it just kind of seems wrong to wear a thong under ones classy wedding dress, right? Or does it? But I feel you can't wear granny panties either. One thing is for sure and that is that you definitely need a fresh pair of never before worn, karma-free underwear no matter what. Further, it seems to me that brides need help getting into their dresses. So at least some people in addition to the groom are going to know!
Don't even get me started on the extreme terror of the thought of getting pregnant between now and wearing the most important dress of my life. (Oh, in addition to my desire to NOT procreate ever anyway.)
So my question to you. What did you wear under your wedding dress?
