My first lingerie
I was sixteen when I got my first set of lingerie. Too young you say? Well it was going into my dowry. Haha I feel so old even using that word. My mom and I went shopping at a lingerie store to add some nightgowns and intimate apparels to my dowry. Every ugly granny thing she could find she bought for me. And the stuff was EXPENSIVE!!!! We did not have money, yet she did not think twice about spending $50 for a robe that looked like Edith Bunker wore. I never saw her wear anything sexy either.
When I turned eighteen, I discovered Fredrick’s of Hollywood. I was on cloud nine. Sure I could not buy anything to be used in the bedroom but at least I could look at their catalogs. I dreamed of being those girls. They were so lucky I thought!!
Years later when I got married I had so much lingerie they were coming out from every drawer. I am still guilty of that. And no, I did not use anything my mom wasted money on. I actually gave some of the robes back to her and some to my mother in law. If my mom sees what’s in my drawers now I think she would faint😉.
