Who said the mother of the bride has to be conservative and demure?
Bulgarian brand Tonena certainly doesn’t think so. The designer has unveiled its “sexy mother of the bride dress” on Etsy and it has people lost for words.
Retailing for $2,390, the handmaid gown features an open back, off-the-shoulder lacy sleeves and a whole lot of feathers.
On Monday, podcast host Rave Sashayed uploaded a photo of the gown on Twitter with the caption: “the pure awe i experienced when i saw this was labeled a ‘mother of the bride’ dress.”
Her post quickly turned into social media sensation and now has more than 22,000 likes and set off a series of Mrs. Robinson and Elvira jokes.
“That dress says I’m seducing my son in law and when my daughter confronts me I will chuckle scornfully,” one user wrote.
“Yo if my mom looks THIS GOOD then she is totally allowed to wear it to my wedding if I ever get married,” another Twitter user said.
According to the brand’s Etsy page, the jaw-dropping gown features ostrich feathers and can also be made in a variety of colors.
