If you've ever dreamed of stealing the show at your child's wedding, one Etsy vendor has just the gown to help you make some major waves.
Bulgarian designer Tonena is selling a slinky "mother-of-the-bride" dress complete with an open back, plunging neckline, sheer material and sassy feathers for the mom who wants her own moment in the spotlight. And after Twitter user @_sashayed poked fun at the sexy design yesterday, Twitter users can't stop commenting on the totally nontraditional gown.
It all started when @_sashayed, who co-hosts a hockey podcast, noted how unusual it is to find such a blatantly sexy gown marketed for a mother of the bride. Plus, the dark and moody number doesn't automatically read "wedding attire," which typically consists of pastels and romantic hues.
After her initial post garnered quite a comedic reaction from followers, @_sashayed couldn't help but imagine the horrified reaction wedding guests might have if they saw a mother of the bride show up in this sexy dress.
And Twitter users had a lot of fun providing colorful commentary on the revealing $2,390 dress.
Most users agreed the look was a wee bit much.
And some couldn't help but think the dress looked like something a certain "Addams Family" matriarch might wear.
The dress spawned many a meme, of course.
And inspired people to channel their inner drama.
The LBD made many people think of stereotypically sexy moms from popular films.
And some real-life moms took the opportunity to horrify their own children.
As it turns out, Tonena has another similar design selling for $1,340, you know, if you're on a budget.
So if one of these designs sells out fast, at least you have a backup plan in place.
Whether the dress is your style or not, one thing's for sure: The reaction you'd get from wearing this dress would surely be priceless.
