Panties on a Clothesline

Materials Needed

  • A clothesline
  • Clothespins
  • Pens
  • Paper
  • A gift bag
  • This game works best at a lingerie bridal shower, but can be a fun addition regardless of shower theme. After all, a clothesline full of panties at a bridal shower is bound to be a hit.


    Be sure to let your guests know that while the bride does keep the panties after the game, the point is not to get the bride a new panty collection. The guests should focus on picking panties that best represent themselves, be it sexy, functional or just plain funny. The bride having panties that remind her of the friends and family at her bridal shower is a much more touching gift than a bunch of new panties.

    The Setup: When you send out your bridal shower invitations tell the guests to bring a pair of new panties for the bride that represents their own personality(be sure to include the bride panty size). Also, let them know that they are to keep the panties a secret. As the guests arrive, privately get each pair of panties and put them in a box for later. When you are ready to play the game, string up a clothesline and use clothespins to pin up each pair of panties along with a number; start at one and continue in order until you run out of panties. Pass out pens and paper to your guests.

    The Rules: Your guests guess who brought which pair of panties, so they should write down the number of the panties and who’s personality they think those panties represent. When everyone has finished the guests get one point for each correct answer, the person with the most points is the winner.

    After the Game: Pull the panties down one at a time giving each guest a chance to explain why they selected their panties. When you are done, put all of the panties in a nice gift bag and surprise the bride with her new panty collection that represents her friends and family at her bridal shower.
