A woman was left mortified when she was given lingerie from her “nightmare” mother-in-law.
But it wasn’t just an underwear, the bride received a pair that her partner’s step-mum had worn on her own wedding night.
The mother-in-law supposedly gave her the lingerie in the hopes that it would make the bride more “fertile”.
Sharing her experience on the Reddit forum, Just NO Mother-in-Law, the shocked bride explained how she didn’t want a lavish hen party in the first place.
She said how since everyone was paying to travel to the Caribbean for the wedding, she wanted a low-key bridal shower with her closest friends.
However, the bride’s plans for a quiet night didn’t go as she had hoped after her step mother-in-law decided to organise a secret party.

The bride said: “She is constantly in situations where ‘things don’t go her way and it was sooooo unfair’ and will rant about it for days/months/years.
“I also want to add that she talks SO MUCH and it is impossible to get a word in edge wise. A 2-hour dinner with her is essentially a 2-hour ramble about everything and anything.”
One month after telling her own mum she didn’t want a hen party, the bride turned up for an evening at her step mother-in-law’s house, only to find a surprise bridal shower. And to make matters even worse, it was “lingerie-themed”.
She continued: “I have never worn night gowns in my life – so I ended up returning all of them for bathing suits for the wedding."

On top of this, the woman also forgot to invite one of her bridesmaids to the party – who was “very upset that she missed it”.
And just when things couldn’t get any worse, the step mother-in-law gives the bride a very “special” present.
The bride wrote: “She starts “announcing’ her present to me in a dramatic (and long) fashion. She goes on and on about how she has something she wants to give me for my wedding and it’s important to her and blablabla."
Speaking about the piece of lingerie which landed on her lap, the woman continued: “It was a hand-me-down nightgown. That she wore on her wedding night. For me to wear on my wedding night.
“She then made a ‘joke’ about fertility and how she got pregnant ‘very soon’ after the wedding. Isn’t that weird?!”
And not only were guests horrified by the whole thing, the bride’s mum was upset that she hadn’t been the one to throw the party and cried afterwards.
She said: “I faked my content for the present and I almost died on the spot. The worst part of all this was for my [mum and mother-in-law].
"They had to sit through this party that they wanted to throw for me but I told them not to. I heard from my sisters that they both cried after… broke my heart."
Unsurprisingly, many Reddit users were equally horrified by the situation.
One wrote: “That is gross! That's a red alert, red flag thing. To give you a nightgown she wore 'and got pregnant'. Bleh! To give this time to a bridal shower as well is EXTREMELY PERSONAL."
Another added: “OMG the cringe-factor is in the stratosphere."
