Bridal Diapers: Icky Trend Or Urban Myth?
Our girl Erin just sent me a link to the most, as she would say, amazeballs story ever. Wedding days are stressful for a bride-to-be, but did you know that some women worry they’ll have to use the loo after they’re dressed for walking down the aisle? Wedding dresses are often hard to get in and out of, you see, which is why some brides (and I don’t know the percentages but something tells me it’s not that many) wear bridal diapers under their Vera Wang. According to MarieClaire.com:
After a quick Google search I found out that it’s not a joke. Some bridal shops do in fact sell bridal diapers, which to me sounds like they’re probably just taking a box of Depends and jacking up the price (typical wedding maneuver!).
I did some further research and discovered that, in general, most brides who do this use regular ol’ adult diapers, but then put, like, frilly or satin diaper covers over them, like panties. A Google image search revealed a photo of this bride’s bottom, which sure looks like it has some excess cotton padding going on. I wouldn’t go as far as saying that this is a trend by any means, but if one person is doing it, I’m baffled. For the love of God, take the time to remove your dress and have a good ol’ fashioned pee on a toilet! Delay the wedding by 10 minutes! Who wants to say “I do” when they’re wearing a soggy diaper?!
