Bridal Diapers ARE an Urban Legend.

July 30, 2010

Oh man… this was too good to be true.  Or actually, too bad.

I first heard about so-called “Bridal Diapers” a week ago on NPR’s Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me – on one of their guess-the-craziest-true-news-story sections.  Marie Claire Magazine reported that bridal shops were selling “Bridal Diapers” …you know, for when you have to wear the dress that takes 30 minutes to get in and out of, and when you have to use the bathroom but aren’t patient enough to spend the time undressing or smart enough to just lift up your skirt…

This story has been re-posted and toted on the radio, but I thought I’d actually look into it, because I just can’t believe that any one would willingly choose to pee themselves in front of their entire family and closest friends while wearing a $3,000.00 dress.  …plus, few things tickled me more than the idea of calling a few dozen bridal shops and asking if they carried “Bridal Diapers” or had ever heard of them.

I got a lot of  “Oh, honey, no…”s. So, I’m going to conclude that they do not exist, except for maybe in that one bridal shop that Marie Claire heard about.

Though, with the odd popularity of “sports catheters” …maybe there is something out there…

    I’m with you: just can’t decide whether to be relieved or disappointed. One the one hand? My faith in human nature? Almost restored. On the other? Part of me really does want the already vulgar bridal industry to just go completely over the top. It’s so close, already!
