My most embarrassing experience while washing my lingerie would have to be when I was in 9th grade and had just bought my first pairs of lacy panties. I was living with my dad at the time, and one day while I was still at school he decided to do some laundry. He dumped my whole laundry basket into one load of clothes (men!) and started the wash.

I got home a bit later, and noticed that my laundry basket was empty. I immediately ran to the dryer - my dad had already transferred everything there - and opened it up. To my horror, my new lace panties had come all unraveled and were tied in a messy knot. Add on my embarrassment over my dad seeing my lingerie! I don't think my dad had ever washed women's clothes before, and I never let him do it again!

Horror! Your new panties!!!

My dad and washing clothes, let alone lingerie, didn't mix either. ;) My dad had a tendency to wash his clothes and forget about pens in his pockets. Clothes always came out with big pen marks splashed across the front.

Thanks for your great post about our contest on your new blog, Style-ology! ;)

I've ruined countless bras in the spin cycle with the top loading machines. It's no fun having the wire stick out when your wearing clingy tee shirts! I guess I should have learned my lesson and hand washed!

I was traveling through Scotland with minimum luggage and planned a few days
with my favorite handsome young cousin and his wife. After they went to work I
hurriedly handwashed my undergarments which included a couple of those panties
for "special days" or in Scotland - knickers. Not seeing a clothes
dryer I hung them to dry. They weren't but a few minutes on the line when my cousin came back home unexpectedly. Seeing my "knickers" he loudly broadcasted for all the neighborhood to hear - "Jesus! You wear those old lady knickers?!" Never again have hung those "special day panties" in a public place.

My most embarassing lingerie washing experience occurred when I had put my bra into a mesh bag for washing. Somehow during the wash cycle, one of the bra hooks snagged onto the inside of my husband's Dockers work pants and the bra came out of the bag and became a leech to his pants. I never even remembered about the bra when I transferred the wash to the line. The bra remained inside his pants leg. Guess when he discovered it? When he unpacked his pants on a business trip. He told his business buddies how his wife planted her bra in his pants to make sure he thought of me when he was away. How embarassing! cdziuba@aol.com

Years ago, I lived in a complex that shared a laundry room. I had a ton of laundry one weekend, including a bag of lingerie; delicate g-strings, lacy bras, stocking and some more elaborate pieces (I was young). I threw everything in the wash and left. When I came back, one of my washers was empty. Of course it had contained a payload of lingerie. I was so upset! Hundreds of dollars gone plus it was ... creepy. Later that day, my neighbor knocked on my door and as politely as she could, returned my bag of trashy lingerie. Turns out her HUSBAND had mistaken them for hers and grabbed it with the rest of their laundry. She found him picking through this unknown bag of panties and well... after some sorting things out, they concluded that they must be mine. These days, I have my own washer and dryer.

When staying at my husbands uncles house I had to do some laundry. Well I didn't see one of my white thongs in the dryer so later his uncle came in with them and over his jeans asking how his new lingerie looked!! My husband and his uncle still laugh about it to this day!

completelyme said...

I washed my lingerie and put it out on the back deck to air dry. We live in the country so it wasn't as if anyone would see it. Wrong. The neighbor boys came over, snatched it, and dressed their dog in it. Their father came over to return it with the dog still dressed in it. He thought it was funny. I didn't.

for my wife great

fangirl said...

I was sorting my laundry downstairs and had to go upstairs to get something. When I came down, I didn't notice that something was missing. About an hour later (with company there) my cat came in dragging my bra behind him. Funny, but embarassing.

oneinamil23 said...

i was staying the weekend at my parents house and i had a bag of "for fun" lingerie that a friend had given me....i completely forgot about it and it mistakenly got brought into the house...i was laying down on the couch watching some tv when in comes my mom in a black leather triangle bikini type top (complete with the black hangy things).....wow...embarrasing!

Princess Golden Hair said...

My hubbie works at a plant where they all shower after their shift. One day, as my husband "snapped" his towel out after hanging it in the shower area, out flew my light green "dainties." He took a lot of ribbing about it and I haven't been able to face any of his coworkers since.

donutinok said...

While sorting laundry to wash my dog had snuck in a grabbed a pair of old granny panties. The kind one uses as a last possible option. Well, he he began eating them without anyone noticing. Later on, when company had arrived guess what the dog continues chewing on! Yes, the old worn out, GRANNY panties in front of the guests. No it was not a wash incident, but it was so close to going in. But, had they gone in perhaps I would stil have them today and one less embarrassing laugh.

I work as a camp counselor in the summer. Laundry day at camp is a lot of work because we have to leave the camp and go to a laundry mat. Another counselor, Andy, and I took 10 kid with us to do our laundry. Between doing loads of laundry and chasing kids around the laundry mat we eventually finished and head back to the camp to get ready for dinner. Somehow, Andy ended up taking my laundry back to the boys lodge with him while I was left with his clothes. I didn't find out until I went to dinner and 10 little boys were marching in dinner line wearing my unmentionables over their clothes as a joke. Not Funny!

Doing laudry as I was growing up, I had 4 brothers younger than me. They were always doing stupid stuff. Putting them on top of their heads and running around. Trying to use my bras for double sling shots. They done it once when I had a friend over. Please enter me, thank you

My husband accidentally washed my lace bra with our 2 year old daughters mud covered sneakers. The sneakers came out clean, and my bra had holes in the cups.

Rosky19 said...

most embarrassing was when I went to visit my husband who was working out of town. I had to go to the laundry mat to do our clothes. I washed and tossed in the dryer without checking it and when my clothes were done and I started folding the clothes I noticed a pair that was not mine. I went off on my husband causing a whole scene the lady next to me said excuse me I moved my clothes from that dryer a little earlier and I beleive thos panties are mine. I was so embarresed and had to make it up to my husband that night. Girls check the dryer first. lol

trend de la creme said...

i was waiting for my husband to finish a load of laundry and stuck all my 'delicates wash only' underwear on the floor next to the washing machine. when i came back, they were spread all over the floor. i thought my husband accidentally kicked them, so i didn't think much of it.

i threw them into the washing machine and went to sit down in the living room to watch television. i looked over at my two miniature italian greyhound puppies and noticed that they were tugging on something. when i went to see what it was, i noticed that it was the cotton crotch from a pair of my lace panties. i ran back into the laundry room, stopped the washing machine, and pulled all of the undies out to see what the heck was going on. ALL BUT ONE of the pairs had a missing crotch.

i ran back out to the living room and spotted the torn out panty crotches all sitting near one another in the corner of the room. (i guess they were saving them for later?) needless to say, that was the first (and last) time i ever left underwear on the floor.

I love beautiful underwaear.

Smooshy said...

I sent my husband up to the corner store and he threw on a freshly washed long sleeved-shirt and headed up. When he came home he was grinning and said that when he was standing in line he felt a bulge in his sleeve. He reached in and in front of everyone pulled out a pair of my panties that had worked themselves in there in the dryer. I'm just glad I wasn't there when it happened!

cdrury said...

Would love to win this - thanks!!! Don't have anything really funny but I havae ruined a lot of bras by having the closures snag on other items and then get twisted.

ezmerelda said...

Two words. Period panties. Don't frown, we all have them.

Belinda said...

I wash my dainty things and then hang them out to line dry. I had somewhere to go so I let the hubby hang the out after the wash was finished ond day.

I came back home to find a pair of my panties hanging from a magnet on the fridge. The seams had come apart in the wash so he had hung them up with a cute note about me needing new undies. This wouldn't have been quite so bad but I had brought company home and guess who discovered the undies first!

perseidesh said...

MY WORST EXPERIENCE...I threw a bunch of clothes I needed for work all in the wash together, then threw them all into the dryer. Of course they finished JUST IN TIME, to throw on my undies, pantyhouse, blouse and slacks and get to work on time. I had used lots of fabric softener. Running across the parking lot to get into the store on time (I worked in the ladies dept. of a retail store), I nearly tripped on something. Just through the entryway, I reached down for whatever kept tripping me...and pulled out my fancy panties..OOOOH, they had gotten stuck between my slacks and pantyhose until the in-store appearance.I was most popular saleswomen for a bit!

yellow said...

We were fixing up a small house in Vermont, my husband and I. We hired painters to give ourselves a break - and, took off on a four-day camping trip while they completed the job. We left in something of a rush, and, I neglected to remove my lingerie from the dryer (yes, I wash and dry my underwear)! We ended up returning two days early due to rain - and, found, to my horror, and my husband's perverse delight, that the painters' had hung my lacy pieces throughout the house - from lamps, the banister, etc. Why they were looking in the dryer I'll never know - but, they discovered them - and, according to my husband: "Likely danced around the house with my underwear on their heads"!

jazlovestoskate said...

I have quite the collection of lingerie (you might call me somewhat of an addict!)…no one knew at the time, and my parents certainly wouldn’t have liked me wearing what I has collected…anyway one day I put them in the washing machine before school…then forgot to take them out when they were done …my mum found them in there and drove back to my school… called me up to front office and dumped them all on the floor for the world to see. Of course it was recess too and quite a few students saw. It was probably the most embarrassing moment in my life!

good prize

Linda said...

My husband and I are road musicians and travel throughout the country. I once had an embarrassing "lingerie moment" while on stage. I was in the midst of singing a song when I felt something strange inside my pants leg. I began to shake my leg and all of a sudden, a pair of panties fell out with a fabric softener sheet attached. The audience roared with laughter and thought it was part of "our act". It was not! I was mortified.....

Nanana said...

Well, it wasn't my lingerie, but my husband and I met in college. We were just friends at the time. He was living with two women. I asked him if he had any stories about women's panties.
He looked at me and said, "Why no, but is that an invitation to view yours?" I blushed completely.
In the end, obviously, he won out.

Jessilyn82 said...

Something horrific seems to happen to my lingerie every time I try to wash something. I definitely need one of those mesh bags! I even put the washing machine on the "hand wash delicates" cycle and still my underthings come out looking all ratty and full of pills.

I found someone elses!

platinum said...

i managed a very busy taning salon and i was like never home... so i used to always take my laundry to work and do it since we had a washer and dryer there to do the towels. one day i must have left one pair of panties in the dryer with the towels and forgot about them.... i went back to folding towels and putting them on the beds... a half hour later this hot guy comes out of the tanning bed holding a pair of my underwear laughing and he said" is this my free gift?!?!" he said this load as all heck in front of a huge line of my customers as he pointed to our store display sing that said " all new customers receive a free gift!!!!" i wanted to die!!!!

I was staying with my parents and tossed a standard load of laundry in the wash. I had to run an errand before I could remove the laundry, so my kind father finished it for me. Turns out, I had included my Valentine’s gift to my boyfriend, a pair of see-through red boxers, which my father had so neatly folded and placed on top. My man hasn’t felt the same around my father since.

When i was in high school, (eons ago) I tossed my bra in a the laundry hamper and went to school. Sometime during the day, my puppy went in and pulled out my bra and left it sunny side up on my bed. I was quite young and quite small, so this was a very padded bra. Anyway, boy was my mom and a herd of realtors embarassed when they walked into my room. And boy was I glad that I wasn't home.

jfg06001 said...

I handwash my panties in the sink. I accidentally left them soaking in the sink before my inlaws came over. my mother-in-law went to the bathroom and came back to inform me I left something in the sink. What's bad is my father-in-law went in there first and didn't say anything!

kygirl said...

It would be when My brother ask if he could do a load of laundry and found my unmetionables in the washer and transfer them to the dryer in fron tof his friend.

idahomom said...

I had 3 soccer coaches staying with us for a week. They thought that it was their laundry in the washer but it was my unmentionables. He had a serious red face as he transfered to the dryer.

Huguette said...

My funniest story is when we first got married hubby decided to wash clothes, my lingerie and a new green shirt among other things, everything come out green. The next week he got me a cat as a surprise and called me at work wanting to know how to wash him, I told him not with a new green shirt .. lol

trudee said...

I would give it to my sister in law that is about to get married.
My husband washed my clothes while I was in the hospital giving birth to my first daughter and since then has not done it again after having everything pink

blueviolet said...

When on vacation, my hubby did the laundry and he put my bra in the regular wash and also didn't use the lingerie bag. The hook got caught in the holes of the washer and it bent and so when I wore the bra that next day it continuously kept coming unhooked over and over all day long. I thought I was going to go crazy! It's not fun trying to rehook your bra in public all the time and try to be slick and discreet about it.

When I was 20 I had a great apartment that did not have a washing machine, and I didn't trust laundromat machines to treat my lingerie correctly. One day I'd just gotten back from the gym and decided I'd hand-wash my lacy undies and best bra, along with my spandex gym shorts, in the tub before hopping in for a shower. I pulled off the shorts to add to the tub, and there I was crouched down in front of the tub bare-bottomed and wearing just my sports bra, scrubbing away with Woolite, not a care in the world. My landlord chose that moment to drop by to check on some minor maintenance problem I had been having with the kitchen stove. He knocked, but I didn't hear him over noise of the water I'd just filled the tub with. So, this poor old guy let himself in with his key and wandered towards the kitchen, passing the open door of the bathroom, and got quite the view. Poor guy nearly had a heart attack, bolted for the front door apologizing profusely, and didn't show his face again for WEEKS! I'm glad I have my own home and washing machine now!

Samantha P said...

i had taken a bag of kisses to the movies, but they were really hard cuz i had just taken them out of the fridge, so silly me, i decided to stick them in my bra cups to warm them up, so while i'm watching the movie i take them out to eat. so i get home and take my bra off and i guess i missed a few cuz there's a puddle of chocolate in my bra! so when me and my mom are doing out laundry she pulls out my bra (that i desperately tried to get to first) holds them up and asks me how my pink bra turned brown! i was so embarrassed, she's been holding that over my head for a long time! you can imagine that taunts every time we go to a movie!

purango said...

My most embarrassing experience while washing my limgerie was doing my laundary in the nude when in college. I looked around and my roommate had let her father and younger brother in. garrettsambo@aol.com

Sylvia P said...

i was at work and i went to put my jacket on, and one of my undies was stuck to inside, so when i put it on it fell to the floor, everyone had a good laugh that day!

Erica G said...

I always hang my lingerie to dry. I wasn't aware that the electrician was coming. He showed up and I forgot about the lingerie. The next thing I know my husband yells from the other room that he thinks my panties are dry and to come get them so they aren't in the electrician's way.

Back in September 2001 I was on the island of Lesvos in Greece and we had been travelling the primitive roads of the island for a couple of days. We stopped at this little house where this woman lived and she rented out rooms to the tourists. My husband and I ended up renting one room from her, and this couple from Germany had the second room that was for rent. I desperately needed some clean underwear so I was forced to hand wash them in this very primitive sink and right outside our bedroom window was a clothesline, but no clothespins! So, I stretched out from the window and rested my underwear on the clothesline and prayed there was no wind to blow them off. As I was about to clothes the window I hear someone say in English, but in a very GERMAN ACCENT - "What is this"? Well, 2 pairs of my underwear had fallen right on the table that the German couple was sitting at outside! I was mortified, and totally embarassed! Now that I look back, it is hysterical to think of what the couple must have thought at the time! We laughed about it later with them.
