Bridal diapers, fact or fiction? Are brides who are covered in intricate gowns and other wedding trimmings wearing diapers? Are the rumors of these bridal diapers the stuff of urban legend? The bigger question is this. Why am I writing and reading about bridal diapers?
If you are anything like me, the internets can take you on all kinds of unexpected twists and turns. Somehow and somewhere I ran across the mention of bridal diapers. How can you help but do a little research about such an incredible topic?
Urban Dictionary – A diaper that is used when a wedding dress is to big or complicated to easily use the bathroom. Most brides who come in to the shop have never heard of a bridal diaper and are surprised to hear just how many we sell. It seems to be something not many brides talk about. but, there is many more in use than you would think.
Marie Claire asks brides if they would wear a diaper. I love the following comment.
– I’m all for innovative ideas, but this is NOT a good one. I can’t imagine urinating into an adult diaper for starters, but on your wedding day, c’mon?! That’s so ghetto! Just lift (or get someone like a bridesmaid or assistant for the day to help you) your wedding dress up carefully & do your business like normal. If you absolutely have to, use a bed pan or something. But for God’s sakes not a diaper. You are supposed to feel sexy & confident, not like a granny or incontinent. You can worry about that 40 or 50 yrs down the road. Besides I imagine that if you were wearing a diaper too long (because you are so busy on your wedding day) you could potentially end up with a god-awful urinary tract infection on your wedding night & honeymoon which of course would KILL all the romance & ruin everything you have dreamed of.
Blogger Lindsay Ferrier says she’s done tons of research and can’t verify the validity of the bridal diaper.
Let’s hope she’s right!
