I inherited my mother-in-law's lingerie.

My mother-in-law surprised us with a visit early today and suggested she watch the kids while we go take a nap. Of course we leapt at this opportunity for "napping," WINK WINK. No, forget the wink, I was up at 5:00 and had lived three lives by noon.

As I was walking to the boudoir for my rest, my mother-in-law was like, "Jenna! Wait! As long as you are taking your clothes off, here is my old lingerie! I used to wear this!" (Husky German lady, "I yooz soo vare diss!") Boom, she pulls out this super saucy, old-ladyish item. It's like a one-piece strapless bra with a hook at the crotch. She said she wanted me to MODEL IT FOR HER.




You know what? I'm in such a mood lately (appreciating I could have it much worse, wanting to maximize my spray tan) that I did. I freaking modeled it. It was sorta gross, but a little funny and anyway, here you go. Yes I'm putting a picture of my has-given-birth-twice body in 1978 lingerie that used to belong to my husband's mom.

The scary part is it fits.

Next chapter of my life: Becoming Maria!

  • I never had a figure like that BEFORE I had kids.

  • In reply to Teppi Jacobsen:

    Whatever, I've seen you! You're statuesque! But thanks - must be those fun house mirrors in my house.

  • I don't know what to say. Modeling the MIL's underwear. Or the fact that she thought you'd want it. Or the fact that you did! LOL

  • In reply to Expat in Chicago:

    She's so funny. I love my mother-in-law so much! She's an awesome grandma to my kids, so why not play along with some silliness? I won't burn your retinas again, lol :)
