A woman has turned to an internet chatroom for help finding a suitable outfit for a funeral after her husband slammed her original choice.
The unidentified woman shared an image of a black ruffled dress from ASOS she had planned to wear, but was now unsure after her husband’s remarks.
“I already have this dress and have a funeral next week,” she began on Mumsnet. “I intend to wear it with black tights and black ankle boots with a small heel.”
The user — known as WillyNilly00 — added that while it appears short in the image, she was only 5 foot tall so it was “practically knee length” on her.
“I thought it was perfect but darling husband seems to think it’s ‘too much’,” she continued. “So would I be unreasonable to wear it?”
Her fellow forum users were quick to jump to her defence, calling the dress “absolutely fine.”
“I would wear that to a funeral,” one user wrote, while another called it “perfect.”
“Honestly, you will look suitably dressed. As far as I’m aware there’s no law against showing a little bit of flesh,” another remarked.
However some members were on the side of her husband, telling her the dress wasn’t really suitable.
“Hmm, I don’t really think it’s suitable funeral attire either. It’s the sort of style I’d wear on a night out,” one person said.
Another declared “It is a bit short for a funeral”.
While there were mixed reviews on the forum, no one seemed to be too concerned by the husband’s lacklustre offer of support.
