LOL!

In my experience... It's a chance for all the women close to the bride to be to get together, get sloshed, and make dirty jokes while gifting the guest of honor with slinky bedroom clothes and other "adult" gifts

(kids arent usually invited, so you might want to clarify with whoever invited you, *eek*)

Another excuse for women to get together, get drunk and do inappropriate things

Yeah, she said it's a kid-friendly deal. Plus it's in the morning. I also don't think she's the type to drink, I know her family for sure isn't.

It was just a text message saying "i'm having a lingerie party saturday, i'd like for you to come. kids welcome"

Quoting MamaRae85:

LOL It's a shower for the bride, in which you get her lingerie, basically. In my experience, most people go for pretty, tasteful things because the bride usually opens them in front of everyone. They can be revealing, but not "slutty".

At many parties, though, raunch is pretty much part of the humor and fun of the night. People get sex toys and role-playing outfits for the bride. Sex games and stuff like that are also given. I HATE those parties, but for those who like them, it's apparently hilarious.

I'm hoping that based on the invitation and what you know of the people hosting the party and the bride, that you can tell which kind of party it is, and plan accordingly.

I went to one last year dressing in lingerie was optional. Only about half of my friends did. After the lingerie showing it was s passion party with a stripper.

Usually they are like a passion party. Someone is trying to sale lingerie to you. Some people even dress in lingerie during the party.

In my experience, that would be a lingerie party, not a lingerie shower.  I don't know anyone who has lingerie showers any longer but when they were popular here, there wasn't anyone trying to sell lingerie there nor did anyone wear lingerie to it.  If someone showed up to a shower in lingerie, that would be very odd at least in my area.
