Funny lingerie for a bachelorette party?
May 31, 2016 8:17 PM   Subscribe

So I'm going to a bachelorette party this weekend and I'd like to buy the bride to be some funny lingerie. Complication though - I need it by Friday, so I want to buy something in person (not online). I'm in NYC.

I think she would be embarrassed if I bought something that tried to actually be sexy, so I'm leaning more towards something silly. Like a goofy costume or something. I'd rather not go to somewhere gross and porn-sy like Fredericks of Holywood (no offense if you like F of H! Just.... she would be horrified.)

I live in NYC and I have two more days to find something, so if you can suggest anywhere in Manhattan/Brooklyn/Queens, that would be great. I get my own lingerie at great places I trust online but....A. I dont think I'd get it in time, and B. those places sell quality, expensive stuff. I just want to drop $30 on like, a wonder woman bra or something.

Edible underwear?

It would be only quasi-lingerie, but since you're leaning goofy: how about a funny costume-type piece from an inexpensive costume shop, like a faux fur bikini?

(I had found a link to one that was likely in a shop on Manhattan, but I think I navigated away before posting the comment I was writing - if you search for "faux fur bikini" or "bikini fur costume" I'm sure you'll find good ideas. The first link I found had a blue fur bikini top, matching bottom with fur pieces on the hips, and I think blue fur leg warmers also).

check out the Forever Lazy. I think they are at Bed Bath & Beyond.

They make adult Underoos. You can buy them on Amazon, too. Quick shipping should get them to you on time.

What does her groom do for work, or as a hobby?

I once went to a bachelorette party for a (very low-key) woman who was marrying a civil engineer. I made her a bra and undies set out of some mini traffic cones (purchased at a sporting goods store), a Do Not Enter sign and a bunch of chain. It went over REALLY well. Tee hee.

Put normal (totally inedible) underwear in packaging for edible underwear. Tell everyone but the bride-to-be.

For the love of all you hold dear, check first with close friends that she'll find the present fun.

You can also go low key but useful. They make pretty underwear and/or camisoles that say "bride," etc.

The pleasure chest has candy bras and gstrings made out of the same stuff as necco wafers and valentine hearts.
