me(24f) and my sister(26f), I’ll call her Red, don’t have the best relationship. Red has always had issues with relationships and them not lasting long while I’ve been in a lot of really long relationships. She has purposefully ruined a few of mine and even tried to get one of my past boyfriends to hookup with her. my sister moved back home because of quarantine making her get fired and me + my fiancé moved back for the time being since we just ended our last lease and are looking for a home. when we moved in I brought my very expensive wedding dress and put it in MY closet all the way in the back so no one had a reason to be near it.
Every now and then my sister asks to borrow a piece of clothing or some shoes and I almost always say yes since I don’t care that much and I thought maybe it would help our relationship a bit. Our relationship did get a bit better and she seemed genuinely excited for my wedding and I thought everything was going to be fine and great.
it wasn’t. I went... keep reading on reddit ➡
I (28F) am getting married early next spring. I have a friend, B (27F) who I’ve asked to be my MOH. We’ve been close friends since the beginning of high school, and I don’t have any sisters, so it’s quite important to me that she be at my side as I tie the knot.
B has never really been in touch with her feminine side- we’re sort of yin and yang in that regard! She wore a dress to prom junior year, and that’s the last time I’ve seen her in one. After that, she wore suits to every event that required formal wear. I’m not going to lie, it annoys me a little, but only because I know how beautiful she looks when she puts the effort in!!
I’ve put a lot of time into planning out my wedding. I’ve hired quite an expensive photographer, and I really want to make sure I end up with some beautiful pictures I can keep forever. Part of that involves making sure the bridal party matches nicely. B and a couple of my other bridesmaids accompanied me to go wedding dress shopping a... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm transgender (MtF) and I'm wearing a tucker, leggings, bra, and a dress! I feel so amazing and accomplished. I finally got here, I'm out to everyone, I got on hormones, I have feminine clothes and I'm voice training right now. I feel like I finally made it. :)

Usually what I wear is just black and I recently got a white gilet which I wear (since its really warm in England rn). I’m 16 and I’m not on about dressing fancy because I’m not often wearing a suit. My “go-to” is often some black joggers that I have (SikSilk) with a black top, trainer socks, Nike 270s (since they’re my favourite) and a black top. But I feel like I should be trying to add more colour, I’m just not sure how to.
Edit: Thank you all so much for the replies and advice, but I won’t be able to reply to every single one since there’s so many. Thank you once again:)
Source: Am a Christian, grew up in a Christian household, have Christian friends in similar situations.
My parents have dictated that my sister and I not wear certain clothes around the house, because they can “cause our dad and brother to stumble.” Clothes like leggings, exercise shorts, etc. I have friends who cannot wear t shirts and go braless in their homes, because of their brothers. I was once told to change when I was wearing a muscle tank and sports bra—which completely covered all the important bits. My sister has pairs of shorts she can’t wear outside of her bedroom, or she’ll be told to change.
Parents who dictate these clothing rules to their daughters IN THEIR HOME create several massive problems for the family, specifically the girls.
First, massively, they ignore the problem of incest within the home that these dress codes imply. If the men of the household struggle with lust to such a great degree that they are sexually attracted to their own FAMILY MEMBERS, ther... keep reading on reddit ➡
I know the title makes it sound kind of bizarre, so I’ll explain a little more.
I’m currently nine months pregnant and my mom and older sister threw me a small baby shower this weekend. It was mainly family and a few friends, about 15 people total. It was held outside so we were able to practice social distancing.
Where I live, it is currently 85-90 degrees Fahrenheit during the day. Therefore, I chose to wear a short dress with shorts underneath. My dress was form fitting up top and then flared out at the bottom, and went to a few inches above me knees. I knew the dress would be a bit short, but it was hot and I had shorts underneath just in case.
As soon as I arrived and walked up to greet my mom, she immediately pulled down on my dress to cover more of my legs. I told her I knew it was a bit short, but I had shorts underneath and it was uncomfortable pulled down like that and pulled it back up where it was supposed to be. She then proceeded to do it again and I just pulled it... keep reading on reddit ➡
That makes sense....cool.
Edit: The game is CodMW and the last time I checked it was 40$. I’m aware the the price went up
Edit 2: I can’t just buy the game my parents can see when I buy things and I have to ask for permission first or whatever
I remember learning this as a child but I don't think I've ever seen this actually happen. For what it's worth, I think sock-sock-shoe-shoe is superior because if you get interrupted in the middle of it you're less likely to be clomping around with one shoe on. That's the worst.
Sorry for the weird title, I wasn’t sure how to summarize my situation. I (24F) am getting married this October, providing corona is over by then. One of my bridesmaids is my friend/ cousin “Mila” (25F).
For whatever reason, Mila has been gaining a lot of weight over the past few months, and I’d estimate she’s up 30-40 pounds since last fall. We went dress shopping in October, and since I ended up picking a somewhat expensive eggplant velvet dress to match the autumn theme, I told my bridesmaids I’d pay (I’m pretty blessed financially, so I could afford it).
Now, Mila has broken it to me that she “grew out of” her dress and will need a new one. Unfortunately, the style is not available in plus sizes and would need to be custom made, if it’s possible to get at all. I already paid for her dress, and I think it’s inconsiderate for her to put on weight when she knows she won’t fit the dress. She’s honestly been really entitled in assuming I’ll just figure it out and replace her dress a... keep reading on reddit ➡
For context, I’m a trans guy. I still really like wearing the occasional dress, as it doesn’t give me too much dysphoria. What are you bros’ opinion on other bros, cis or trans wearing clothes that are traditionally considered feminine?
First some historical context. My family calls itself a catholic, but we have never been that abiding to the church canon or protocol since I remember, My grandmother is a lady who was born in 1930 and had the good luck of having an awesome father who surrounded her with all kind of books, so the critic thinking has been in my family for 4 generations now.
THIS HAPPENED BACK IN 2002. My older brother (26 at the time) and his girlfriend (24 at the time) had decided to get married because of legal commodities, they both were in the first stages in their respective jobs. My brother is an engineer and was working on making a name for himself in his field, my (now) SIL is a dentist, who had recently begun to work in the public health system, so her work hours were crazy, She was called if there was an emergency, even if outside her shifts.
As you can imagine, she didn't count with a lot of time to plan anything, and their common budget was not what a wedding budget you will expect (They... keep reading on reddit ➡
When my husband and I were getting married, both sides of the family were really excited. During the planning, one thing you do is coordinate what colors/outfits people in the wedding party will wear.
I was talking to my MIL about our plans and told her our color schemes. She was excited to buy a dress and while I didn’t really care if they matched the bridal party, she said she wanted to complement the color scheme. My bridesmaids were wearing Navy Blue and the groomsmen were wearing Grey suits. My MIL said she was going to let my mom pick her dress first and then go off of that.
A few weeks later, out of the blue I got a text from her saying she picked her dress. I was surprised since she said she’d let my mom go first, I didn’t even know she was going shopping. But then she sent a picture of her dress.
It was a freaking wedding dress!! It was an ivory color, lots of beading, and it even had a small train. She kept saying it was “cream champagne” colored, but it was basically... keep reading on reddit ➡
This is an interesting drama, because if you couldn't see the downvotes, you wouldn't even think it was a problem.
Honestly the entire thread is full of people very unhappy about OP's content.
It’s was about 2 weeks before my aunts wedding we were all bridesmaids (me and my 5 cousins) we were just trying on the dresses to see if see we needed any final adjustments . We all tried on our dresses mine fit alright but a little too big but my cousins was too big on her as well so she suggested that she try on mine.My cousin wasn’t obese or anything just bigger than the majority of us and I knew she wouldn’t be able to fit in a size 4 which I was wearing in dresses. I said why and she said oh cause we are basically the same size at this point everyone else kinda just looked away in the awkwardness and I felt bad so I said sure and led her to the bathroom so we could switch them while we were there I said to her in these exact words “I’m not trying to hurt your feelings but I’m not sure if this dress will fit it might be too small” When I said this she looked shocked and offended and said I’m not fat I told her “ I don’t think your fat at all your a perfect weight” she accused me... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm dyslexic and I'm on mobile.
Backstory my family has two 150 year old christening dress handed down from generation to generation one for a boys and one for girls their delicate and family has been stitching and re fixing and cleaning and maintaining them. The dresses can fit to 0 to 18 months.
I had my daughter late last year and decide to have a christened in March of this year (this was just before the coronavirus got out of hand and anything shut down we all thought it was just like the flu.) my brother and sister-in-law decided that since I was already organising a christening that they would get their 5 year old son and my nephew christened as well and I agreed. (Despite them saying they'll pay half then ever did or not pain the traditional donation to the church.) my sister-in-law asked me to alter the boys christening dress to fit her 5 year olds son I said no because the dress wouldn't survive the alterations, however I had an alter Boy outfit that I can make look pretty... keep reading on reddit ➡
