13 Times Brides Wore Dresses With Pockets And Couldn’t Be Happier

Published 1 week ago

Having pockets on men’s clothes seems to be the norm – heck, even some hats have pockets on them. This is not the case for women’s clothing though. Most of it doesn’t have pockets at all or has those terrible fake pockets where you can only stick half of your fingernail in. Talk about equality, huh? So imagine some women’s’ surprise when designers decided to add pockets to not just any regular clothes but to actual wedding dresses!

Twitter user Esther Kezia Thorpe shared a photo of her friend’s wedding dress that had pockets on it and the women on Twitter just couldn’t get enough of it.

I mean, having pockets on a wedding dress seems like the logical thing to do – men’s suits have them, so why not add them to the gown as well? After all, where is the bride supposed to put her stuff? Or her hands when she’s having a drink?

Esther’s post even started a hashtag, #weddingdresswithpockets, and it quickly went viral with women sharing their own pocketed? Pocketful? Uhh, dresses with pockets.

The looks on the brides’ faces say it all.

“Wedding dresses are often not designed with practicality in mind,” said Esther in an interview with Bored Panda. “But a wedding is the one day a bride is unlikely to have a handbag handy, so pockets are more essential than ever for tissues, lipstick, and of course, snacks (no one wants a hangry bride!)”

So put in your phone, your lipstick, keys, some snacks or whatever you want – you have pockets!

“Pockets on women’s clothing has been a growing issue for a number of years, especially as we become more attached to our phones,” added Esther. “It’s very rare to see any women’s clothes with adequate pocket space for an Oyster card, let alone a phone!”

“I’ve heard rumors that it’s a conspiracy between fashion houses and handbag designers – if we aren’t given pockets, we have to use handbags!” said Esther. Maybe that’s why we don’t see a lot of men wearing handbags?

“Having recently found a few niche retailers who do work dresses with pockets, I’m now a firm convert to proper pockets,” said Esther. “They’re a life-saver, especially during hayfever season when it’s essential to have a pack of tissues handy at all times.”

Let’s hope the pocket trend catches on!

People loved the dresses with pockets

One day this guy just kind of figured "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending around the web. Something that always peeks his interests is old technology, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness so if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
