Your bridal shower is one of the most special days of your life. Your closest friends and family members gather to celebrate you and the love that you've found before you say your vows and become a married woman. It's also the day you know your face will turn red with embarrassment - and secret pleasure - while you unwrap intimate gifts of lingerie to wear for your new husband right in front of your mom, future mother-in-law, and your grandmother. There's no need to feel embarrassed; most women get lingerie at their bridal shower. In fact, there are a few pieces you can almost expect to receive at your shower.
This is a piece that you won't wear often, but when you do you will feel like a goddess. This is a gown that is made of silk and likely hits the floor. It probably has delicate straps and a lovely bit of embroidery or lace at the bust. It will hit your curves in all the right places and make you feel like you are bathing in a sea of silken water. This is a gift that will likely come from either your mom or your fiance's mom, or maybe a grandmother. It's lovely, delicate, and elegant.
Don't be surprised when you unwrap something naughty enough to make you wonder how you even wear it. One of your girlfriends, probably one of your college roommates or sorority sisters, or maybe even your own sister, will give you this one. It's probably going to be tiny, covered in lace, and barely big enough to cover anything at all. Don't be embarrassed, just file it away as something your future husband is going to go crazy over, and don't forget to pack it for the honeymoon.
Sweet and Simple
Someone will give you something you might actually wear on a regular basis. A coworker or friend, maybe an aunt or sister will give this to you. For the most part, this piece of lingerie is going to be a thigh skimming silk nightgown. It probably has thin straps, a little slit in the side, and it's going to be a great color. It may even have a matching robe, which means it's going to be your go-to piece of lingerie. It's sweet and simple, and it makes you look like a girly goddess every time you put it on.
