What Are They Wearing?

Today was a hot day in Zürich. Which means that people dressed for the weather.

In Europe, dressing for hot weather frequently translates as "I'd rather be naked, but as the law requires clothing I will wear something translucent instead." And even though I am a Midwesterner (i.e. prudish), I have almost gotten accustomed to seeing people wearing clothes that reveal what I would rather be left to the imagination. Or not imagined at all depending upon the person.

However, this morning I saw something that had my jaw dropping to the floor.

While riding the tram past Burkliplatz I saw a couple walking along Lake Zürich. He was dressed in a beige linen suit. She was dressed in a flowing white gown, had flowers in her hair and clutched a bouquet of white flowers. They were accompanied by some friends. Obviously today was their wedding day.

Here is the jaw dropper...

Even though it was obviously her wedding day and even though she was at least 7-8 months pregnant, the blushing bride selected a wedding dress that was so transparent that she may as well have been walking along in her all-together. You could see everything, including the lack of bra (which I found amazing given her advanced state of pregnancy!)

And did anyone else know that they make thong underwear for pregnant women?

Alas, as I was on the tram passing by there was inadequate time to get a picture...

Oh that's just wrong! Even more wrong than black socks and sandals.
