Did your mom say you can't wear white before Memorial Day?

Is that a Midwest US thing? When I was younger, my mom always told me you couldn't wear white dresses or pants before Memorial Day. Do people still say that?

I never did ask her if that applied to underwear. 馃
[image deleted]white is always acceptable.

That's the flattest ass I've ever seen, holy shit.

My mom used to say no white before Memorial Day or after Labor Day. But that only applied to my sisters.

@SageWanderer yes, that's what my mom said too.
Mine used to say it. I told her to hit the trail and Id wear whatever I want when I wanted to.
@SW-User Did she hit the trail? Did you ever see her again?
Might be a Midwest thing I guess. I've heard my mom, wife & daughters all mention it at different times.

Not a Midwest thing
Mom and grams would yell at me when I did
Also would yell if I didn't have enough cloths on

@celine211 Well... you should probably wear something over it. Unless the funerals you go to are a LOT better than the ones I've been to!

It was a Southern thing, too.
I never understood why

@Deadcutie no what? No, she never said that or no, it's not a fashion thing anymore?
